Design approach/Narrative:
This facility was designed to reuse the existing CAMPOS site. A major challenge for this site are the future NDOT freeway expansions plans and the overall limited size. The site will have limited access off Bonanza and will have to address the expansion of the freeway to the south will eventually be demolished. Creating an office environment that provides safe and secure separation between staff and offenders is also critical to it’s design. The enclosed parking structure provides complete separation between staff to the building at each level of the garage. The garage and building are integrated completely in order to maximize the site constraints as well as provide a true urban feeling. The separation and secure line between staff and offenders is exemplified by using the large curved element as the secure line. This curve also becomes an inconic feature on the west elevation and addresses the main intersection of Bonanza & Casino Center. The organization of the facility is ideal to keep construction costs down by utilizing the parking garage structure/column layout and extending that through all levels of the facility. Materials are durable and easily maintained and provide a sense of security and longevity. The facility is also designed appropriately for the harsh desert climate by incorporating sun shade devices, low e-gazing, low water use plumbing fixtures and landscaping.
