Although there were many merits to the idea of switching to a more central location for the Ingham County Justice Complex, these discussions ultimately hit too many dead ends, and the jail needs to be replaced as soon as possible. The decision has been made that the location of the Ingham County Justice Complex will be in the county seat, Mason Michigan, at the same location of the current jail, Sheriff’s Office and 55th District Court.
The request for proposal (RFP) for an owner’s representative went out on October 30, 2018. Ingham County has hired the local firm of Kramer Management Group to represent the County for this project.
The RFP for the Architect and Engineering firms (otherwise known as A&Es) went out on April 12, 2019 and was due on Tuesday, May 14, 2019. Ten proposals were reviewed and four were chosen to be interviewed on Wednesday May 29, 2019.
Ingham County still has a target date for ground breaking late spring or early summer 2020, with a 24-30 month build time.
