Ajax Building Corporation of Georgia has just been awarded the Cherokee County Adult Detention Center expansion in Canton, GA. We will be teaming up Studio 8 Design for the architecture and engineering. The current detention facility was completed in 2002, but the jail with only 96 beds dates back 30 plus years. This project will be a 110, 000 square foot expansion, and will include a new 620 bed tower, new medical housing, a secondary warming kitchen, an additional laundry. Other improvements and renovations will focus on the main lobby; the existing security systems and video visitation system.
