JE Dunn completed a 76,000-square-foot, 118-cell, 204-bed new county jail with kitchen and laundry, booking, and administrative facilities for Effingham County.
We were able to return $930,000 in savings to the owner, allowing us to negotiate the renovation of the sheriff's office. The project team implemented Lean construction principles including pull planning and daily stand-up meetings which allowed the project to be completed two months ahead of schedule.
The sheriff's office includes 18,606 square feet of finished interior area, 1,516 square feet of detective's work space, 860 square feet of evidence storage, a 955-square-foot enclosed sallly port and 317-square-foot exercise room. The project also included a training room, armory, and interview room with an adjacent media recording room.
