A groundbreaking ceremony took place on Friday, February 7th, at the site for the new San Luis Obispo Women’s Jail. Roebbelen Contracting, Inc. will be performing the construction work for the project set to be completed in October 2016.

The new 46,000 SF jail will include a 38,000 SF housing unit with 198 beds. Space will also be provided for counseling and other rehabilitative-type programs such as parenting classes, life skills, computer skills, GED preparation and treatment programs.

Additionally, 8,000 SF will be used as medical facilities serving the women as well as the men who are housed at the nearby men’s jail. The project also includes a new complex-wide electronic security system upgrade.

This project, and the county of San Luis Obispo, will benefit from Roebbelen’s vast Corrections experience and our drive to deliver a project our clients will love and that we are proud of.
