Another Successful Project by GGA

October 13, 2017 Criminal Justice, GGA in the News Comments Off on Another Successful Project by GGA


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.

Recent Mental Health Issues in Jail Design

September 19, 2016 Criminal Justice, From GGA Comments Off on Recent Mental Health Issues in Jail Design


A critical aspect of designing a Detention facility today is to include the appropriate capacity to identify and manage mental illness.  GGA is pioneering a concept for cognitive management within the Detention environment through the “layering” of prisoner housing.   A GGA Jail design provides the Jail staff with a spectrum of housing & interview facilities starting at Intake, on to Medical assessment, then Special Needs housing and finally to General Population housing.  Each prisoner entering the institution is thoroughly interviewed, tested & assessed for physical & mental conditions which may adversely affect their ability to be successfully detained.
