The additions at Taft Youth Development Center needed to incorporate many functions. Upland Design Group had completed previous renovations on some of the existing buildings on the campus, but the population of the facility required more classrooms, counseling offices and visitation spaces. Due to site concerns, the required additions were broken into distinct parts and then connected with walkways and canopies. Security during construction was coordinated with the facilities security personnel to allow both a safe working environment for the contractor and the integrity of the facility. The final product created new security checkpoints and access points for both the new additions and the existing campus.
