The facility is designed and constructed to achieve LEED® Silver certification. Some of the major objectives were to preserve as many of the existing trees as possible on site to provide ‘screening’ for the facility. The purpose of this new campus-style facility is to offer a safe, secure and healthy rehabilitative living environment for the effective management of youth in conflict with the law.
