The design team at Elevatus architecture developed an original and staff-efficient design concept for this jail. Equipped with the latest technology in video/audio visitation, it contains a communications center, an investigation department, food service, a firing range, a booking area, an infirmary wing and a medical department, and a separate sheriff’s department. To accommodate the owner’s request for a clear separation between the sheriff’s administration activities and visitation activities, a lobby for each function was located on opposite sides of the main entry. Prominent signage at the entry provides easy navigation to both destinations. The secure housing is laid out in a baseball-diamond configuration, affording excellent lines of sight throughout the two housing units and the control rooms, including central control and intake.
"Sanilac County has continuously relied on Elevatus for their expertise and dedication to quality of service, and I have actively worked with them in the planning stages of our renovation and jail expansion project. I give my full recommendation for Elevatus for design and construction on building projects."
