Construction of GRCC was completed in 1994. The facility design is a direct supervision model, consisting of 3 medium security general population housing units with 444 double-bunked cells, a maximum security segregation unit with 44 single-bunked cells, and a 50 bed open dorm-style minimum security unit.

Griffith performed an assessment of the locking control, duress, intercom and lighting control systems.  The scope of work included the a design to retrofit an aging manual and PLC controlled system with new touchscreen HMI and updated control systems.  The design also provided for a new fiber optic security network for integrating global security functions as well as redundant control systems.
