San Benito County Jail Expansion Phase II

Project overview

Vanir was hired by San Benito County to provide construction management services for a jail expansion project, following a series of significant delays. We provided a clear roadmap to expeditiously proceed with the new building, located adjacent to the original facility and connected via a secure breezeway. Previously, our team had managed the construction of the original jail, completed in 1992.

The jail facility consists of:

  • Inmate housing (two-story, 72-bed housing unit): Includes dayrooms, showers, storage spaces, indoor/outdoor recreation areas, a control room, two multipurpose classrooms and a staff restroom
  • Medical services suite: Includes a doctor’s/nurse’s office, exam room, inmate waiting area, supply room and janitorial storage
  • Intake and release suite: Includes a booking area, holding cells, dress-out stations, exterior sally port and vehicle turnaround driveway, officer’s lobby, offices, public entrance and waiting room, restrooms and a visitation room

Roy (Vanir’s Project Director) and his team kept the entire project moving forward even through challenges via open communication and full transparency…County of San Benito Sheriff’s Office will continue to work with Vanir because of the success from this project.
