The New San Mateo Detention Facility: Reaching for new standard in California Detention Facilities (1.5 HSWs) (Free)
San Mateo County is one of the first to utilize a direct supervision, program intensive response to the evolving program in the state of California, with its challenges with gang-related inmate population.
This project also addresses the issues of housing a diverse, multi-gender population with a great difference between sentenced inmates and pre-trial detainees. The project strives to meet LEED Gold and be a vital architectural neighbor in a dense urban setting.
