Youth Center Dedicated

July 06, 2004

The new Dixie Area Detention Facility in Hurricane, Utah was recently dedicated. The Utah Department of Human Services Division of Youth Corrections commissioned JRCA Architects, a Salt Lake City design firm, which partnered with Hayes, Seay, Mattern & Mattern, Inc. (HSMM), a Virginia-based architectural and engineering firm, and Layton Construction, a commercial and industrial construction firm in Sandy, Utah, to design the new $6.5 million, 64-bed juvenile center.

JRCA, HSMM, and Layton Construction have partnered for more than 10 years on a variety of projects. According to Joe Jenkins, former Director of the Division of Facilities and Construction Management, “The design-build team was awarded the contract based on its unique design.”
