A few testimonials from our justice projects

“We were impressed with GGA’s innovative, personalized approach to design, high standards of performance and substantial knowledge of this complex, specialized building type. Their design skills, commitment to our project’s needs and unwavering dedication are remarkable.”

Daniel Gallagher, Chairman, Miami County, KS Commission September 5, 2018

“GGA advised us at every step of the process, providing options based on a high level of expertise, substantial knowledge of this complex building and unwavering dedication to meeting the needs of our County. The design is both functional and cost effective which required a high level of collaboration and an understanding of various needs and personalities.”

Lynne Oharah, Chairman, Bourbon County, KS Commission July 12, 2018

“When you design a jail, you need an expert — a real expert. There are a lot of moving parts, a lot of functional priorities to balance. Someone who’s done a couple of jail projects is not an expert…you need someone who’s done dozens of jails –who designs them all the time, everywhere — and brings that depth of experience to the table. That’s why we hired Goldberg Group. That’s what they do.”

Bill Federspiel, Sheriff, Saginaw County, MI March 21, 2018

“We became increasingly impressed with their expertise, attention to detail and dedication to their clients success. We could not have imagined working with anyone else.”


Greg Harless, Chief Deputy (ret.), Ingham County, MI June 21, 2017

Goldberg’s staff helped us with so many aspects of this project – from planning our facility to developing a new Procedures and Policy manual and  designing a Memorial to Fallen Responders – everything. They are so much better than ordinary architects.”

“We have had the opportunity to work with architects across the nation. Even among nationally-recognized Justice Architects, GGA is special.  Their designs, which are compact and easily constructed, demonstrate a high level of technical performance and attention to detail.  GGA often presents us with the challenge to develop modular products that meet specific  project needs.  They  have remained at the top of our specialty for more than 30 years.”

Ray Handte, Vice-President, SteelCell North America June 21, 2017

“I am always taken by how you sit with the Client early on and work through dozens of hand sketches to bring their visions to life.  It’s not just that you can perform this operation, but that you do so with economy for the client in mind.  I have never met a designer who can get so much function in so little space and do so as an advantage to the client.  All of this makes for great design at affordable prices.”

Beckenhauer Construction August 25, 2016

“Overall, the process went very smooth and the facility has been a complete success since its grand opening.  During the 2011 budget year, the facility had net revenues of $270,044 which allowed the commission to reduce our local mill levy by 2.7 mills reducing property taxes for every land owner in the county.”

Commissioner Jerry McKeman July 12, 2016

“We were required to use a tight, complex site near our existing facility.  Our Architect, Goldberg Group from St. Joseph, MO, designed an extremely compact, efficient jail with 176 Beds all cell based with no dormitory housing.”

“We are very satisfied with their work not just the finished product but the service after the sale. We contact the firm when issues arise and are treated with the greatest courtesy.”
