San Benito County Jail Expansion Phase II

Project overview

Vanir was hired by San Benito County after it had experienced several years of delays related to a much-needed jail expansion. Our team was brought on board to provide construction management services. We provided a clear roadmap to expeditiously proceed with the new building, located adjacent to the original facility and connected via a secure breezeway. Having managed the construction of the original jail that was completed in 1992, Vanir was honored to be pursued for this critical expansion. The facility includes:

  • Inmate Housing (two-story housing unit, 72 beds): Includes dayroom, shower and storage spaces; indoor/outdoor recreation areas; a control room; two multi-purpose 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: Consists of a booking area, holding cells, dress-out stations, an exterior sallyport 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.
