Our reputation for reliability has helped HMN build a successful justice architecture practice across the Midwest. Our experienced team has designed over 60 justice facilities and can help you navigate the unique challenges facing your organization: county budgets, protection from design related liability, low staffing requirements and maintaining affordable construction costs. When working with justice facilities, developing a cost-effective design approach is critical. Conserving all your resources, whether financial, human or environmental, is a hallmark of our practice. Committed to generating an excellent return on investment, we often reduce operating costs by achieving staffing ratios as high as 1:75 in housing areas.

Over the years, we’ve designed all aspects of the justice process, including secure inmate housing, law enforcement offices, judicial centers and telecommunication centers. In designing each of these facilities, HMN utilizes a unique, two-point contact system. This ensures you’ll always able to speak with someone who is knowledgeable about your project and has the authority to make timely decisions.
