Haywood County Justice Center is a 196 inmate facility. Our work session process resulted in a plan, site, estimated budget, projected design schedule, and exterior artist rendering in only three days.
The facility is located at 100 South Dupree Road in Brownsville, Haywood County, Tennessee, the site of an existing abandoned Walmart building. Demolition was required within the existing building limits which allowed us to "retro-fit" an old Walmart into a new jail / courts facility. The project also consisted of a new addition on the south side of the existing building. The site was updated with new asphalt paving and concrete walks. The building consists of four distinct areas, courts with support areas, sheriff's department with offices, jail with support areas, and space for future expansion.
The courts, including offices and support areas, are in the renovated existing building. This part of the project also includes the sheriff's department with offices. The main inmate housing area addition, located south of the sheriff’s department, is a single story building with a mezzanine. This area holds the inmate cells, dayrooms, dormitories and control area for the guards.
