July 2022 Update

Yavapai County Justice Center Update for July 2022

The Yavapai County Justice Center, currently being built on Prescott Lakes Parkway in Prescott Arizona, is nearing its final stages.  Major Completion is still on schedule for Fall of 2022 with the building to be dedicated and occupied in early 2023. 

Most of the curbing has been completed in parking areas and the sally port, where detainees will be received, is going up on the North side of the building.  What can’t be seen is all the work going on inside.  Nearly every trade is hard at work completing the HVAC, electrical, plumbing and even some drywall and painting is underway. 

While no building projects ever goes exactly to plan, especially while combating supply chain issues during a pandemic, the new Justice Center has succeeded in staying on budget with minimal delays and no lost time due to injuries or incidents.  This is a testament to the men and women working every day to complete this project to the highest standards.

A "Light" Lift

In the last half of January you may have seen the crane at the Yavapai County Justice Center lifting small buildings.  These are called a "Clear Story" becuase they are small buildings that go on the roof, creating a small story, that allows light into the holding areas.  The lifts took place over a few days becuase of the comlexity of fitting a small building into a square hole in the ceiling.
