Mobile Metro Corrections Complex
In 2015 PH&J performed a Study for Mobile County to look at solutions to achieve compliance with a NIJO Assessment of the Mobile Metro Jail. This study resulted in planning and programming for an addition to the Jail to accommodate a new Intake and Booking area, new Clinic and Infirmary spaces and housing for additional classifications of detainees.
Phase I: Jail Security Upgrades. Installation of a new camera system for the Mobile Metro Jail, which replaced over 400 existing cameras and upgraded video recording capacity for the facility.
Phase II: Jail Slider Doors. PH&J designed and administered the replacement of corridor slider doors for the Mobile Metro Jail.
Phase III: Jail Addition. The Jail addition accommodates the Booking and Intake recommendations of the NIJO report, some features include new sallyport, property room, processing area, secure holding and transfer cells. The project was bid in 2020 and has begun construction.
Phase IV: The Barracks. This renovation converts the existing three-story minimum-security dormitory building into a medium security facility accommodating a higher classification of inmates and extending the jail’s site security perimeter fencing and camera system around the remaining unsecured areas of the jail facility.
