Davis County Jail

Medical Observation Unit

Although Davis County Jail’s inmate housing facilities tripled, their medical unit was never expanded—until now!

Lead Estimator

The medical observation unit was the first full-fledged jail project I’ve worked on, and it was a great experience helping Davis County Jail develop a space that fills a need.

Project Success

We maintained a delicate balance between security and healing to create a positive environment for the inmates.

I think we’ve only just begun to tap into the resources we will have with this medical wing. The obvious ones have come to the surface…but I think there will be more forthcoming as we get in and start operating.
