Renovations have begun on the Comal County jail and sheriff’s office at South Water Lane and Interstate 35 in New Braunfels, TX, north of San Antonio. The $76 million project will convert the existing jail into 68,000 square feet of office space, and will add a new 150,000-square-foot jail building to hold 566 inmates, with possible expansion up to 900.
The current jail, which delivered in 1985, has 144 beds and holds 337 inmates. “This is a much-needed project, given the growth we’re experiencing in Comal County and in our jail population,” Sheriff Mark Reynolds said.
HDR’s Dallas Architecture studio, and Bulverde, Texas-based LMD Architects are the architects and engineers on the project. San Antonio-based Yates Construction and Sundt Construction, are jointly serving as general contractors.
