Commission Approves Jail Expansion Plan

Posted: Updated:

The Ward County Commission and JHL Architects held a meeting Monday, to discuss the services offered by a Construction Manager at Risk Firm for the jail expansion project.

Adolfson and Peterson Construction presented a preliminary schedule for the project. They also explained how the process would work between the contractors and architects.

After much discussion, the commissioners voted to approve the agreement with AP Construction.

During the next 10 weeks, the firm will work to create a design of the project with a cost model expected in March or early April.

"It's our responsibility to manage expectations.  So, if it's a 30,000 square foot facility, we want to make sure that we're controlling a 30,000 square foot facility. It will have a certain amount of programs, whether it's a number of cells, offices, conference rooms or anything else," says Mark Liska, Adolfson & Peterson Construction.

There is Ward County Commission meeting Tuesday at 9 a.m.
