Project Description

Government and Cultural

Jail and Sheriff’s Headquarters

IGW provided comprehensive design and construction phase services for the new 21,000 square foot Moultrie County jail and law enforcement administration facility located in Sullivan, Illinois.  This LEED Silver design incorporates surplus precast modular housing units from the Thomson Correctional Center project and provides maximum staffing efficiency within a compact floor plan.

The pivotal design consideration was the semi-circular organization of the prisoner housing and booking areas and lobby around the security control center.  With this arrangement, the control center and adjacent dispatch area have direct observation of the booking and prisoner processing area on one side, the prisoner housing straight ahead, and direct observation and service access to the public lobby on the other.  This met the project objective of minimizing the number of staff needed for facility operations and maximizing their effectiveness.
