The Academy of Architecture for Justice (AAJ) promotes and fosters the exchange of information and knowledge between members, professional organizations, and the public for high-quality planning, design, and delivery of justice architecture.
The panel of international practitioners who have developed P3 justice projects will share their lessons learned from successfully using the project delivery method in other countries on built projects.
P3 is a relatively new concept for the development of justice facilities in the US. However, The UK, Canada, Australia and other countries have been doing it for years. This session will provide a panel of practitioners from the development and A/E side who have built justice facilities (focusing on correctional facilities) using this procurement method. The purpose of the session is not so much a description of how the process works, but rather identification of opportunities and challenges that arise, and how these challenges are met using real, built examples to illustrate the speakers' points. The session will explore the time frames required, the relationship of key participants (particularly from the architects perspective), how design is impacted, the client-consultant relationship and how issues are resolved. Most importantly, the session will address outcomes-- how the facilities that were created benefitted from the P3 delivery system, and how they might not have. Speakers will discuss the procurement process, design phase, development and finance, and the long term facility maintenance. Speakers will also discuss the impacts of this delivery method, if any, on the ability to implement best practices in corrections operations, including bedspace classification and management, programs and services, inmate and staff environment, security, movement and transport, building and site design, use of materials, value engineering, and meeting goals for rehabilitation. The goal is to provide a realistic and candid view of the opportunities for P3 in the delivery of justice projects, so that those jurisdictions in the US and abroad that have not yet used the approach can benefit from the experience of those that have, and get higher on the learning curve of how the process should be shaped to ensure the most successful outcomes.
