Hendricks County Jail
Striking a balance between form and function for the community
Challenge: From a planning and landscape architecture perspective, the main problem was to provide attractive elements in the site design that would benefit the health and wellness of the facility staff and visitors without creating exuberant cost and maintenance concerns for the client.
Solution: RQAW designed the facility in a cost effective way that would allow for expansion so that the facility would continue to be viable for many years to come. The incorporation of additional site enhancements through landscape and hardscape design will provide a visually pleasant arrival and street presence to the facility and for its users, to help soften the size and prominence of this type a facility in the Corridor Protection Overlay District of the town of Danville .
