Otay Mesa

Detention Center Expansion

JE Dunn worked with DLR Group for the design-build of the 512-bed expansion for the Otay Mesa Detention Center. The team’s goal was to build a quality corrections facility within a secure compound, competitive budget,and fast-track schedule.

The Otay Mesa Detention Center Expansion was constructed as one single building, mainly organized around a central hallway running the entire length of the building. The façade facing the public parking lot serves as the public entry point and is designed to provide the visitor with a positive civic image and experience. The design allows inmates in each housing unit extensive access to the outside without having to leave the observation of the corrections officer in charge of the unit. Ample natural light is provided by the end wall windows and extensive skylights. The day room opens up on the exterior end to a secure recreation area, open to the sky.
