BEXAR COUNTY DETENTION CENTER San Antonio, TX

Project Scope

Construction of a 455,000-SF holding unit facility, including the insertion of block partition walls in all interior cells and the installation of a sophisticated electronic security system. The detention center covers one entire city block. The eight-level structure with twin towers contains over 400,000-SF of post-tensioned concrete slab, and 71,000-SF of brick veneer. Approximately 17,000 yards of concrete and 320,000 SF of block were used in the construction of the complex. Through constructibility reviews, the value of the project was significantly decreased, resulting in cost savings returned to the owner and an amended and reduced schedule.
