Several counties have experienced setbacks recently trying to build justice facilities after voters approved ballot issues. These projects went on hold as bids came in significantly over-budget. Dedication of the new Bourbon County KS Law Enforcement Center demonstrates that projects can move forward in this difficult construction market. Bourbon County Officials worked closely with the design team at Goldberg Group Architects to adjust the scope and budget to move their project forward with expert construction management from Universal Construction.
The state-of-the-art 21,000 square foot, 74-bed facility contains detention housing, Sheriff’s offices and support facilities such as an Emergency Operations Center (EOC), canine runs and a shelled Housing Pod for (16) future beds. Project costs total $8.8 million including all construction fees and furnishings. There were $0.00 in Change Orders for the project–practically unheard of in today’s construction environment and on buildings of this complexity and size. Plans include return of $21,000 in unused project funds to Bourbon County.
