Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office New Intake & Processing Facility and Templeman III & IV Replacement
This new 433,409 SF structure replaces a number of the Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office buildings that were flooded and damaged during Hurricane Katrina. With an estimated building cost of $145 million, the new Intake Processing Center/Templeman III & IV Replacement facility meets the standards and codes of the American Correctional Association.
The housing portion of the new structure is a five-story, concrete-framed building with intermediate mezzanines that provides secure housing for a total of 1,438 inmates.
The building consists of 20 housing units with a total of 500 cells. Each cell is designed for double occupancy. All cells are precast concrete that were fabricated and finished off site, then transported and assembled with the structure. Dormitories provide the remaining inmates with beds.
In addition to the housing portion, an Intake Processing Center and Administrative Building was constructed. The Intake Processing Center is a two-story steel structure that accommodates the admission of inmates and storage of possessions. Inmates enter the complex through a secure sallyport on the ground level. Above the sallyport stands a three-story steel structure that houses the needs of the Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office.
