Building Type Basics for Justice Facilities (Building Type Basics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Building Type Basics for Justice Facilities is a one-stop source for the essential information architects, engineers, and facility planners need to quick-start the design process. In this book, two of America’s leading experts on justice facilities architecture and planning share their knowledge on issues essential to the design of six key building types: law enforcement, adult detention, courts, corrections, juvenile and family justice facilities, and multi-occupancy facilities. They also explore key trends that are driving the planning and design of today’s and tomorrow’s justice facilities, including increased demands for flexibility, information technology, and accessibility.

Highlighting numerous innovative justice facility projects of the past few years, including the Mark O. Hatfield Courthouse in Portland, Oregon and the Elgin Law Enforcement Facility in Elgin, Illinois, this book provides critical information on the process, potential problems, and unique design concerns for justice facilities. It also offers extensive coverage of lighting and acoustics; selection of structural, mechanical, and electrical systems; internal traffic; specialty systems unique to justice facilities; and such economic factors as costs and financing. This indispensable guide:

  • Asks and answers twenty questions encountered frequently in the early phases of a project commission
  • Provides project photos, diagrams, floor plans, sections and details
  • Includes guidelines for a variety of justice facilities, including law enforcement, adult detention, courts, corrections, juvenile and family justice, and multi-occupancy facilities

This conveniently organized, quick reference is an invaluable guide for busy, dedicated professionals who want to get moving quickly as they embark on a new project. Like every Building Type Basics book, it provides authoritative, up-to-date information instantly and saves architects and facility planners countless hours of research. Engineering consultants will also find a wealth of information to help them tackle justice facility building commissions of all kinds.

Book News Annotation:

To help architects break into the premier growth industry in the US, courts planning and research consultant Phillips, and architect Griebel explain the distinctive features required by police stations, jails, courthouses, prisons, youth and family facilities, and multi-occupant facilities. Then they examine systems and issues common to them all, such as lighting and acoustics, special systems, security systems, costs, and financing.
