Carrizalez-Rucker Detention Center

Yates Construction provided construction services for the Carrizalez-Rucker Detention Center expansion. The 44,950 SF maximum security detention facility consists of 356 beds, a visitor’s center, and a county administrative office. The project features several unique design elements, including a suspended mezzanine ceiling which required a creative building process development plan. The facility was specifically designed for detainee escape prevention and segregation by classification. Due to the addition’s connection to an existing facility, an accurate three dimensional model was utilized during the planning process to determine the most cost-effective construction materials and methods to meet stringent maximum security requirements while conserving the County’s budget.
