St. Lawrence County Correctional Facility Case Study
This 186-bed facility replaced the existing 85-bed jail, eliminating the County’s need to board out inmates. Its direct-supervision design also enabled the County to maintain the original jail’s lower staffing levels. SMRT developed a flexible unit design to cost-effectively accommodate a range of inmate classifications with small populations. The facility meets strict Wicks Law mandates and American Correctional Association (ACA) standards. Building performance exceeds New York State NYSERDA certification standards, yielding a substantial energy incentive payment for the County.
