Hendricks County Jail, Danville, Indiana


RQAW led the Hendricks County Sheriff’s Department through the design process of a new jail and administrative offices. This new 158,544-sf facility is more than just beds and space for officers, it will be a facility that can adapt and change with the community. Our collaborative approach has led to a highly operational and staffing efficient design that will allow the County to maintain their current staffing levels while doubling the inmate bed count and creating therapeutic spaces that enhance rehabilitation. The goal was to accommodate the immediate and future needs of the County by creating the space to be easily expandable, operationally efficient, and technology state-of-the-art. The design elements have been optimized with a keen focus on inmate/staff safety and staff retention through provisions for a less institutional and more normalized environment.
