Our 360 Justice integrated platform allows us to deliver the following services:


We are the Owner's advocate. We protect their interests as if their investment were our own. We help Owners align their vision and prioritize needs, select the right team members, and build consensus among all project stakeholders. Our program managers are the Owner's team leader, driving the process and ensuring successful on-time delivery that meets, or surpasses, the Owner's schedule, budget, and quality expectations.


Strategic, actionable plans that empower decision makers and set the foundation for design. Our approach to planning guides our clients through the complex decision-making process that’s necessary to create a comprehensive facility plan. Doing so allows for essential collaboration to take place, resulting in successful infrastructure establishments.


Design with a purpose. We have designed millions of square feet of prisons, jails, courthouses, and public safety facilities. We work closely with every client to ensure our design solutions are customized to support each community's unique circumstances, minimize the total cost of ownership, and maximize our clients’ return on investment.


Long-lasting and cost-effective. CGL is the largest, most experienced provider of outsourced facility maintenance services for state and local criminal justice facilities. We have provided valued-added, turnkey maintenance for correctional facilities since 1993. Maintenance represents one of the largest investments made in a community. Through maintenance solutions, comprehensive Total Cost of Ownership, and preventive maintenance, our plans make buildings last longer, costing the public less.

With a long-standing track record of bringing projects to fruition through alternative financing and development methods, we help our clients reach their development and finance goals. A successful project is a well-developed, well-financed project. We use our decades of experience to help you explore and weigh all the options.

Dan Wehmueller "CGL Companies is an irreplaceable component of our core project team and I would recommend them to any owner looking for a partner of the highest quality. Our leadership wanted nothing short of a once in a generation, first-class facility that met every current and foreseeable need for the County. CGL Companies rose to the challenge and has made those goals attainable." Dan Wehmueller, Project Manager Johnson County Facilities Management Planning, Design and Construction T. Scott Moulder "The design allowed for maximum usage for minimum square footage, and we were also able to minimize the number of additional staff needed to operate the facility. CGL's project managers are very experienced in jail design and construction. They offered project oversight we could never do on our own. They were angels on our shoulders, watching all aspects of design and construction." T. Scott Moulder Oconee County Administrator Lt. Col. Roy Witham "I can’t imagine going through a process like this, a large, $130+ million project and not having the confidence of having someone who's been there... We exist daily and participate daily in a very unique partnership here at this facility. I never felt alone. I never felt exposed. I could go back to my sheriff, I could go back to our mayor and provide them a level of confidence because I knew that CGL had our back." Lt. Col. Roy Witham Former Chief Operations Officer, Richmond City Sheriff’s Office Liz Habkirk "The experience, professionalism, and performance of the CGL team has been remarkable and invaluable to our county. Staff are always available to us, understand the county’s needs, and are responsive in their efforts to meet our requests." Liz Habkirk Napa County Executive Office, Napa County > <
