JE Dunn completed the 226,770 SF expansion and renovation of the El Paso County Jail. This project consisted of a new 6-story housing building and an addition/renovation to the existing Criminal Justice Center Building. The project also included construction of a new evidence storage building. The new housing building contains 12 housing wards with 72 beds each for a total capacity of 864 beds. Due to immediate housing needs, the evidence storage building was constructed first and was used for temporary housing for approximately 200 inmates. It is now used for processing and storing evidence and is divided into storage, office and vehicle space. The addition/renovation to the existing center included housing units, exercise, administration, intake, medical, kitchen, laundry, maintenance, and storage area – all while the existing facility remained fully operational and fully secure.
