With statewide changes to the standards for detention, the former north secure housing unit and part of the education unit were renovated and converted for use as non-secure shelters and transitional housing. The overall goal was to renovate the facility to provide a safe, supportive environment for youth rehabilitation.

The facility provides both secure detention and long-term housing, as well as space for administration, case workers, councilors, and management of early intervention programs. A vital component of the facility is educational programming, and the facility was designed to allow easy access for outside academic staff. The design utilized two main corridors hinging on a central control room. This vantage point monitors visibility through primary circulation paths in secure and non-secure areas.

Galloway was selected to provide architectural and interior design services for the remodel at the detention center in Hurricane, Utah.
