Lancaster County Adult Detention Facility

The Lancaster County Adult Detention Facility project was commissioned by the Lancaster County Department of Corrections to replace the overcrowded existing Lancaster County Jail.

This new facility is 271,000 SF and twice the size of the existing facility. It provides additional housing for 786 inmates, with the potential to expand to 1,000 beds. A mixture of dormitory-style housing for minimum and maximum security and special management housing offers flexibility for housing options based on population needs. During the preconstruction phase the team was able to add a 112 bed pod alternate design to the base bid. Even with the additional pod added to the design, it still kept the project under budget. The mechanical systems will include a geothermal heat pump for heating, cooling, and back-up power for the facility. This system will save the project 20 to 30 percent in energy costs each year.
