HMN Architects, Inc. teamed with Chautauqua County on their Jail &
Sheriff's Office. For this project, HMN provided pre-bond services,
giving presentations and providing materials to aid in the eventual
passing of the vote 3:1.
The new jail uses an indirect supervision style, incorporating good
sight lines for visual observation. This allows for a single command
post to 20 general population beds. The jail also provides two booking
cells. Housing is divided into four dayrooms, which aids the jail's
staff in classification. The ability to classify is unusual for a jail
of this size.
The facility also has a drive-through vehicular sally port and
multi-purpose room with a central control/dispatch monitoring station.
An indoor/ outdoor exercise yard, evidence storage and training room are
included in the design. The project features an administration area,
which provides space for the County Attorney, City Police, Road Patrol,
Sheriff and Under Sheriff, along with staff work areas.
As often is the case, the county faced budgetary and site restrictions;
the goals were to economically fit the building onto the courthouse
square. The team achieved both, incorporating flexibility for growth
without taking additional square footage from the square. The final
design complements the 1930's courthouse by using red brick and cast
stone accents, along with a red standing seam roof. The project delivery
method was a General Contractor.
