Galveston County Criminal Justice Center

The joint venture team of Gilbane Building Company and J.W. Kelso Construction performed construction management services for the Galveston County Criminal Justice Center, a comprehensive judicial complex that consists of three buildings: a 1244-bed jail facility, a courthouse facility housing the County and District Courts, and a law enforcement facility shared by the County Sheriff’s office and the Galveston Police Department. The three areas were constructed simultaneously as part of a single campus complex.

This $92 million, 605,000-square-foot complex was constructed near the entrance of Galveston Island, making it easily accessible to the entire community of Galveston. Buildings were designed to withstand hurricane force winds.
