Booming inmate populations and ever-increasing security concerns create increasing pressure on communities to maintain safe and secure criminal justice facilities. With the region’s most experienced criminal justice planners, RQAW has completed more than 150 criminal justice projects in Indiana alone, providing the most innovative, cost-effective, and staff-efficient facilities in the region.

RQAW has led the field with the first use of prefabricated steel modular cells in several states, as well as the first programmable logic controllers and the first touch-screen security systems. Video visitation and double-envelope pod design around a single elevated control room are other unique features which maximize staff efficiencies and lessen security issues within RQAW-designed justice facilities. The American Correctional Association, American Institute of Architects, and the Precast Concrete Institute all have recognized RQAW justice projects for their state-of-the-art design, innovation and efficiency.
