Our Expertise

In December 2013, Tuolumne County applied for and received $20 million in SB 1022 Adult Local Criminal Justice Facility Construction Financing Program Grant funds for the construction of a new Tuolumne County Jail. In conjunction with aiding in the development of this grant application CGL developed a needs assessment and facility programing documents. These documents shaped both the needs and requirements for the new county jail.

In late 2014, CGL, in association with Lionakis, was selected to provide architectural services for both the design and construction phases of the new Tuolumne County Jail Facility. Services for this new, type-II, pre-trial, design-bid-build project include:

  • Architect of Record
  • Project Management
  • Design and Consultant Coordination
  • Full Architectural Services
  • Construction Administration
  • Planning and Programming
  • Detention Design
  • Security Design

The current Tuolumne County Jail was constructed over several phases with the oldest portion completed in 1953. The former 31,517 SF jail had a capacity of 140 beds. The jail was ineffective from both a staff and infrastructure perspective. The county’s overarching goal was to replace the current jail with a facility that addresses staff, security and infrastructure deficiencies.

The new jail facility is located at the county’s new 48-acre Law and Justice Campus. The 49,209 SF jail site is situated on four acres, and includes 198-beds. Additionally, it will include support space for food, laundry services, medical, storage and programs.
