Jail Dedication Held
May 3, 2010

A dedication ceremony was held on March 12th, 2010 to mark the official opening of the newly expanded and renovated New River Valley Regional Jail located in Dublin, Virginia in southwest Virginia. Simultaneously, the new facility was featured on the cover of Correctional News magazine, a national publication “dedicated to correctional facility construction, maintenance and operations.”

The feature titled “Regional Effort,” highlighted the unique features of the facility expansion and the challenges faced by Project Architect Mark Swecker, AIA, LEED AP and the entire design team to meet the facility needs while maintaining feasible construction cost.

Originally constructed in 1999, the Jail was initially designed for a general population of 371 based on certification by the Virginia Department of Corrections. Since that time, an increase in population growth in all classifications within the facility had pushed inmate population numbers to 700 plus. Due to these unexpected increases, an expansion and renovation to the existing facility was required. The project was completed under the construction budget of $55.2 million. Since this is a regional facility, the State of Virginia will reimburse the Jail Authority 50% of the total eligible project costs, which include construction and other eligible project costs.
