Gardner-betts juvenile center

2515 S. Congress Ave. - Austin, TX
Completion - January 2001
Construction Area - 10 Acres

Project Summary:

The Travis County Gardner-Betts Juvenile Center project consisted of the renovation of courtrooms, administration offices, and intake areas as well as the construction of a new 27,000-square-foot juvenile detention building.

The site is nestled in the heart of South Austin and its location was difficult to design due to the area constraints inherent with the property. Large elevation changes, small areas for detention ponds, accessibility issues, parking availability, and avoiding existing utilities were some of the challenges particular to this site.

Garrett-Ihnen was selected as part of the project team responsible for the design and construction of the Gardner-Betts Juvenile Justice Center Improvements. Project responsibilities included design of the site work and expediting the permitting process.

The project was delivered on time and was presented awards by the American Institute of Architects and the American Correctional Association.
