The $49-million SCORE Jail project is the first multi-jurisdictional jail completed in the state of Washington. This 813-bed facility houses inmates for the cities of Auburn, Burien, Des Moines, Federal Way, SeaTac, Renton and Tukwila.

With jail costs rising nearly 70% over the past seven years, the design of the facility was specifically intended to provide spaces that allow for lower operational costs. Constructed on a 14-acre site south of the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, the 164,000-sq-ft jail is a plant-cast precast concrete and steel structure.
