Douglas County Adult Detention and Law Enforcement Center (DCAD+LEC)
Douglasville, Georgia

Description
The Douglas County Adult Detention Facility and Law Enforcement Center is a new 500,000-square-foot county detention center and law enforcement facility on a 36-acre site that is planned for 600,000 square feet of future county office space. The result is a modern facility that meets the county’s current needs, in addition to acting as a good neighbor to the future county uses without sacrificing the security of the sheriff’s operations.

Scope of Services
The Collaborative Firm provides architectural services in support of larger design teams. In this project the Firm partnered with the lead designer, HOK, to utilize its experience and collaborative approach to seamlessly integrate into the design team to develop the best achievable design.

Value-Added Accomplishments
The Collaborative Firm was a vital member of the design team from Schematic Design through Construction Administration. Firm professionals helped refine and develop the design ideas through the Schematic Design process to deliver Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) Documents to the client. After the GMP document review, the Firm assisted in altering the design to meet budget concerns and ultimately creating the drawings to reach a permitted set of drawings. During the construction phase, The Collaborative Firm has been instrumental in keeping up to date on contractor Requests for Information (RFIs) and Submittals to ensure that construction progresses smoothly and without interruption. As the DCAD+LEC project continues, the Firm will continue to serve an important role during site observation and managing the Construction Administration process.
