Pierce County Detention & Correction Center


This project was recognized in Justice Facilities Review in 2003, which is published by the Committee on Architecture for Justice and the American Institute of Architects. It consists of a 170,000 square-foot facility with space to house 1,000 individuals. PCS was also the structural engineer for a 410-bed addition to the original facility. This GCCM project allowed PCS Structural Solutions to collaborate with the contractor to execute a pre-cast concrete vertical system, which saved the project significant time during construction. A reinforced veneer system was also proposed by PCS that allowed for the veneer to span between floor systems.
