Upland Design may handle jail addition
Company in line if more jail space built
Upland Design Group could win its bid to be the architectural firm to oversee the Warren County Jail proposed expansion, if one occurs. Upland was selected Wednesday in committee after presenting the above proposal that outlined the firms past projects and services. The measure will be submitted to the full Warren County Commission for consideration.
A field of several architectural firms for the proposed Warren County Jail expansion was narrowed to one with Upland Design Group emerging on top. The county Building and Grounds Committee and the county Corrections Partnership Committee held a joint meeting Wednesday. Both committees unanimously selected Upland Design Group over Cope Architecture, the two remaining firms in the selection process.Tipping the scale in Upland’s favor could have been its long history with the county, including projects at Irving College Elementary, Bobby Ray Elementary, Centertown Elementary, and Warren County High School’s multi-sport complex.
