Corrections and Prison Cell Modular Buildings

Corrections and Prison Cell Modular Buildings

Today, modular buildings from Modular Genius can be designed to meet specific and unique requirements for prison cell and corrections facilities for police and sheriff departments, probation facilities, boot camps, and other types of detention facilities.

Modular Genius is an award-winning modular builder that designs modular police station buildings and other high-quality modular solutions for every industry, from office buildings to complete school campuses, to multi-story medical centers, to state and national park visitor centers and ranger stations, to relocatable radio stations. We have also completed modular projects for every branch of the U.S. military.

Our modular correctional buildings feature durable holding cells, interrogation rooms, secured evidence and weapons rooms, office space, and can include a roll call area, booking station and reception space. They are ideal for both permanent and relocatable facilities, such as:

  • Police Stations
  • County Jails
  • State Prisons
  • Federal Prisons
  • Military Prisons
  • Juvenile Detention Centers
  • Judicial Facilities
  • Receiving Cells
  • Holding/Detention Facilities
  • Probation Facilities
  • Temporary Inmate Housing
  • Multi-Bed Dormitories
  • Dining Halls
  • Shower Facilities
  • Locker Facilities
  • Fitness/Recreational Facilities
  • Minimum Security Permanent Buildings
  • Medium Security Permanent Buildings
  • Guard Towers

Safety & Security

When building modular correctional facilities, it’s important to choose a team with experience in safety and security. Modular Genius’ modular construction methods meet the high-security requirements for Sensitive Compartmented Information Facilities (SCIF) and Special Access Program Facilities (SAPF) in terms of physical security and hardening, acoustics controls, visual controls, access control, electronics and security systems.

The Modular Construction Process

Built in sections off-site in a manufacturing facility, Modular Genius first completes the planning and engineering stages based on your unique requirements. We can custom design your floor plan to include any features and options that you desire.

The components are then built in a factory-controlled environment while preparation (grading, foundation, utilities, paving, landscaping) is taking place at the construction site.

Overall, modular construction is about 40% faster to design and build than conventional construction. In a matter of just a few months, modules are transported to the building site and connected in sections, like building blocks.

Why Choose Modular?

Modular construction offers an average savings of 20% off conventional stick-built construction costs. While a lower price is definitely at the top of most customers’ wish lists, there are other important advantages:

  • High quality: Today’s modular building customers have countless options in terms of designs and floor plans. Buildings are constructed to meet or exceed all state and local building codes, the same codes as site-built projects. and undergo rigorous quality control and inspection processes at each phase.
  • Less waste/more safety: Lean factory manufacturing reduces material waste and costs. Off-site manufacture and pre-assembly also minimize the waste, noise, dust, debris, and traffic of a normal construction site, and the risk of liability and security issues that are of particular concern when building on the premises of correctional facilities.
  • Technical innovations: A modular commercial building can be constructed of wood, steel, or concrete; the same materials as a conventionally built building. Architectural designs are compatible with any environment and can be built to blend seamlessly with surrounding architecture. And innovative “clear-span” framing systems ensure that your jail facility is properly monitored and visible from every angle
  • Relocatable: Modular buildings can be permanent or relocatable, and are capable of being disassembled and reinstalled in another location. They require minimal site work to install. With proper care and maintenance, relocatable modular buildings can last 25 to 30 years and may last longer when permanently installed.
