ICON developed a site plan incorporating the scenic landscape of the mountainous terrain in the design of the site and building. The building design accentuates the landscape by mimicking the form of the mountain backdrop. The project included sustainable design elements including: a geo-thermall well-field, the use of local materials, creation of natural day lighting while maintaining security, energy efficient mechanical and electrical systems, and state-of-the-art security and electronic systems. The facility provides adequate room for correctional treatment of male and female inmates both juvenile and adult. Program rooms for spiritual and correctional treatment as well as both indoor and outdoor recreation space were also included. Site and building design allows for future expansion without disruption of operations. The building also houses an administration wing that features offices for correctional staff and tribal police, and evidence and briefing rooms. The Chippewa Cree Tribe also performed a majority of the construction which created and maintained jobs for the tribal people.
