Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility, Expansion #3

Project overview

In an effort to meet the high demand for jail beds in Riverside County, it was decided that additional land at the site of the Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility would be used for a 292-cell, 582-bed expansion. The project included the housing pod expansion, related support spaces, and a new central plant.

The Vanir team provided agency construction management services for the planning, design, and construction of the maximum security facility.

Providing better service for the community

The state-of-the-art, high-tech facility is not only more cost effective, but better serves the public, staff, and inmates in a more secure environment. Benefits include:

  • Easier Maintenance: Updated features and money saving designs, such as outside plumbing, eliminate the need to relocate inmates during routine maintenance.
  • Efficient Staffing: Multiple cell blocks with centralized hubs allow for simultaneous surveillance of all inmates within the hub, while utilizing less staff.
  • Safer Facility: Latest safety measures ensure protection of both staff and inmates.
