About the Project

With the original law enforcement center dated and at full capacity, Iowa County selected Kraemer Brothers to build a new facility to house the sheriff’s office, jail, emergency management, and coroner’s office. Months of coordinated pre-construction planning between the architect, Department of Corrections, jail administration, Iowa County Sheriff, and Kraemer Brothers resulted in a building that would greatly serve the county long term. The building features 65 jail cells (96 sleeping units/beds), evidence processing rooms, a drive-through sally port, and numerous employee offices, along with a master plan to allow for expanded jail housing, courtrooms, and vehicle storage. Receiving approval just over a week prior to the breakout of the COVID-19 pandemic, Kraemer Brothers quickly started construction, ultimately finishing one month ahead of schedule and returning over $1 million in savings upon completion. Designed with safety, security, and operational efficiency in mind, this building includes state-of-the-art technology and will continue to serve the citizens of Iowa County for decades to come.
