The Wakefield Beasley & Associates / HOK team / Winter Construction was selected by the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners to provide design services for the new Courthouse and Jail addition project. This is a SPLOST VII funded project.
This new 608 bed jail facility and courthouse will be located in downtown Cumming. The Jail features direct and indirect supervision models for the housing units. The courthouse features space for State Court, Superior Court, Clerk of Court, District Attorney and Solicitor Offices.
The project budget totals $100 M. The total project includes a new jail with approximately 175,000 sf, a 160,000 sf new courthouse and two parking decks to accommodate 700 vehicles. The proposed design includes a bridge connection between the court and jail facilities to allow for safe transportation of inmates.
