Maricopa County Intake, Transfer and Release (ITR) Facility / Detention Facility

About the Project

Hensel Phelps provided Construction Manager at Risk services for Maricopa County on the Intake, Transfer and Release (ITR) Facility/Detention Facility project. The project involved new construction of a 512-bed 72-hour ITR and a 1,280-bed medium-security Detention Facility.


The 189,000 SF ITR component includes four (4) courtrooms, judicial chambers, public viewing galleries and office space for staff, prosecutors, victim advocates and defense attorneys. The project also included administrative support areas, processing and release functional areas, jail and law enforcement spaces.


The 260,000 SF medium-security Detention Facility includes administration and support services, educational programming, healthcare and kitchen facilities. Physical and mental healthcare service areas allow the staff to quickly provide evidence-based treatment and connect inmates with community resources to continue treatment upon their release.
