Richmond Justice Center




Virginia and Texas Divisions

The Richmond Justice Center was built to replace a chronically overcrowded, deteriorating correctional facility with severe maintenance problems. During the bidding process for this construction, other teams proposed alternate methods of construction — steel, masonry, and cast-in-place concrete. Tindall won the bid, persuading the customer to choose precast concrete over other alternatives. By converting the cast-in-place concrete lower level to precast concrete, in conjunction with all of precast’s usual benefits, Tindall saved the customer considerable time and money.

Raising the Bar.

With experience manufacturing and erecting precast, prestressed concrete housing for more than 65,000 inmates across North America, Tindall was an obvious choice for this complex correctional facility project. With Tindall’s help, the multi-level Richmond Justice Center was fully erected in seven months, now including two administration levels, six housing levels, and over 400,000 square feet of usable floor space. In total, the project required over 2,000 pieces of precast concrete, including nearly 200 modular housing units.

Upon completion of the precast correctional facility, Richmond Sheriff C.T. Woody, Jr. praised Tindall for building a structure that beautifully complements the community and its surroundings. The Richmond Justice Center also won the regional award from the Design Build Institute of America.
