Civic architecture isn’t only about buildings; it’s about people. Our clients and the people who use the buildings we design are the ones who really make public spaces come alive. We simply create settings that enable them to function efficiently, solve problems, and better engage the public.
Transitioning to more fluid work environments
Modernizing the workspace is new territory for many of our civic clients, so they look to us for twenty-first-century designs. We’ve designed offices with smaller desks and larger collaborative work areas. We’ve also made it easier for employees to work away from their desks by including multi-device docking stations around the office.
Managing financial risk
By partnering with an experienced architectural firm and using a design-build model, civic clients are not only more dialed in to design projects than ever before, they’re also guaranteed project costs. We’ve helped clients ensure that the residents of their communities get true value for their invested tax dollars.
Bringing buildings up to code
Buildings used in civic projects are often historic, dating back to the mid-twentieth century and earlier. We know how to modernize older buildings and bring them up to electrical, mechanical, plumbing, fire, and safety codes. We also ensure that their aesthetics and historic integrity are not compromised.
Updating emergency response stations
Police, fire, and emergency operations facilities must keep up with technological and safety advancements, and stay powered during disasters of all types. We design law enforcement facilities and other buildings that help assure quick response times, public safety, and 24/7 operation.
We’ve worked on many amazing projects over the last seven decades. Here are just a few that have pleased our clients.
