The County of San Bernardino’s Design-Build Central Valley Juvenile Detention and Assessment Center was a $62 million project which received the Design-Build Institute of America-Western Pacific Region (DBIA-WPR) award. In addition, the project was selected as the best correctional project by DBIA-WPR.
Located on a 9.7-acre site, the project called for the design and construction of three 80-bed housing units and one 40-bed transitional housing unit arranged in 20-person modules. Each module measures one story and 75, 000 square feet and is composed of classrooms and program space for group therapy, religious activities and medical services. To create an interior courtyard area offering indoor activity space for juvenile detainees, modules were designed in a triangular fashion. Additional amenities include basketball courts for each housing unit and a facility sports field. The project also features a warehouse, retherm kitchen and a 47, 000-square-foot single-story administrative building. The administration building includes intake, clinic, library, central control station, as well as general office space.
