Rountree Detention & Reentry Facility


CGL served as the owner’s representative, criteria architect and construction manager for the renovation and expansion of the existing Rountree Medium Security Facility, which includes a new model of sentenced housing, expanded programs and social services, food service, laundry space, and upgraded perimeter security.

Now known as the Rountree Detention and Reentry Facility, the new and improved detention center combines education, vocational training, and rehabilitation services under one roof, with semi-private living areas for inmates and increased access to a variety of social and rehabilitative services.

As the County’s representative, we collaborated closely with stakeholders to implement integrated solutions that address realignment impacts and assist in obtaining program goals, including: developing efficient programs and space to allow for successful reentry, reducing recidivism, and helping to relieve budgetary constraints.

In addition to developing a master plan and needs assessment, we assisted the County with SB1022 planning efforts, including: grant writing, needs assessment updating, generating a phased community resource plan, revising space listings, and authoring an architectural program statement.
