Jefferson County Detention Center Expansion and Remodel

Golden, Colorado

This multi-phase project consisted of replacing the central plant, enlarging a court holding area, and increasing administrative and evidence storage space.

The expansion features the new state-of-the-art, two-story, 32,600 SF Jefferson County Regional Crime Laboratory with space for DNA analysis, firearms testing, latent fingerprint examination, serology, drug analysis, photography, and video work.

Building in eight separate areas on a 17-acre, fully operational campus required Haselden to work seamlessly around the following facilities without interruption: fleet fueling stations, vehicle repair bays, SWAT facility, crime lab, medical and psychiatric facilities, vehicle sally port, and intake booking station.
