Design Achievement - The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department is focused on creating evidence-based programs and expanding alternative custody programs as a means to increase treatment support for high-risk offenders, improve offender success rates, and reduce recidivism. Originally constructed in 1960, numerous facilities at RCCC have been remodeled, expanded, and constructed over the years. DLR Group’s updated master plan focuses on long term expansion and redirects building functions to better serve the operation of the overall facility. DLR Group’s design of the Phase I expansion will support the sheriff’s mission to cultivate safer communities by providing appropriate services to the offender population in order to reduce recidivism and afford individual self-sufficiency.

Scope Summary - The 120,000 SF expansion includes a 32-bed medical/mental health housing unit, medical clinic, vocational programs, intake and release center, food service kitchen, and a new central control. The main challenge is that the site was in a flood plain so analysis of berm systems vs. raising the buildings needed to be done. Also, being an existing site that has been in use for almost 100 years the utility infrastructure analysis is critical.DLR Group is providing master planning, architecture, engineering and interiors services.
