Vanir’s construction management services were instrumental in delivering the new South County Detention Facility, which houses a maximum of 519 inmates in a modern pod design. The building is equipped with a medical center, administration center, visitation center and kitchen.
Designed to provide the safest environment for detention officers and inmates, the facility has a state-of-the-art security electronics system and 172 cameras. The housing pods consist of four units branching off of one control panel.
