The Hughes County Jail and Juvenile Justice Center is located in Pierre, South Dakota on a hill overlooking the Missouri River. The site is picturesque, but posed some distinct challenges. The area was not served by a road or utilities, which was a challenge for the team. The resulting design had to maintain as much cover as possible while creating a level site. An access road was constructed, which required a balanced cut and fill grading design.

Construction completed in early 2010 on the Hughes County Jail and Juvenile Justice Center. Designed by HMN Architects, Inc., the new jail has 144 beds. The cells are double bunked in the main housing area.

In addition to traditional jail housing, the facility includes a 24-bed work release area. It is comprised of dorm space divided into two, separate spaces for males and females. There are 18 male beds and six female beds. The facility also has a 16-bed juvenile detention area, which is divided into four pods to allow for maximum flexibility.

The Hughes County Jail features video visitation, medical holding, a hybrid satellite control and a drive through sally port. Jail administration support spaces are also found here. Round the clock alcohol and drug testing is done at this facility, and the appropriate spaces were incorporated into this design. The new jail also has a warming kitchen, as the nearby women's prison currently provides kitchen and laundry services to the jail.

HMN considered the future needs of Hughes County when creating the design. The new facility is expandable to 288 beds in order to allow for growth. Additionally, a full kitchen and laundry space have been 'shelled in' to hedge against future contingencies. This shell space offers the county future growth opportunities.
