Wackenhut Adult Penal Institution

Correctional Facilities

The Wackenhut Adult Penal Institution is a 500-inmate facility to house pre-trial detainees divided into both male and female general population, and special circumstance incarceration. Our firm was approached in light of an initiative by the government of Puerto Rico to privatize certain government services.


Strict compliance with the government RFP and the operational requirements of Wackenhut Corporation lead the overall design intent of the institution. V Architecture provided full architectural design and construction drawing preparation.
