Cloud County’s antiquated jail had presented its community with an increasing risk of fire, escape or assault. GGA was retained to determine whether the financial and operational opportunities existed to develop a viable jail replacement project without raising taxes. Working with the Sheriff’s Department, County Commission, City Officials, and representatives from the local construction community, GGA was able to put together a new 80-bed law enforcement facility plan, which includes detention center and Sheriff’s Department, to combine increased operating efficiency with historically low-interest rates to avoid a tax increase.

Cloud County’s jail design marks the second time GGA incorporated pre-engineered building systems with its customary secure, highly efficient, radial-podular layout to achieve construction budgets 20% to 30% less than comparative facilities built elsewhere in the region with traditional building technologies.
