Johnson County Jail
Upgrading and expanding judicial facilities to meet community needs
Challenge: The existing Johnson County Sheriff's Office and Detention Center lacked adequate space and needed interior renovations and mechanical upgrades.
Solution: RQAW was entrusted with the design for an addition and renovation of the existing Johnson County Sheriff’s Office and Detention Center in Franklin, Indiana. The housing pod addition created space for 268 beds and a sally port. Renovations to the interior included reconfiguration and design for new medical area, intake/booking, holding, and program space. This project was completed on August 31, 2021 and resulted an added 45,370 sf to the existing facility.
