Civic and Cultural Buildings and Infrastructure


In dynamic communities, continuous growth requires civic structures and infrastructure that can adapt and enhance the region. Our integrated design team joins forces with civic leaders, community stakeholders and organizations, municipalities, state and local governments, public agencies, and special interest groups to provide strategic and impactful solutions that prepare for the future and keep communities thriving.

Our collaboration focuses on strengthening communities by:

  • Planning with an eye toward constructability and implementation.
  • Creating flexible designs.
  • Modernizing outdated assets and spaces.
  • Maintaining and increasing service levels.
  • Repurposing and consolidating existing spaces.
  • Gaining efficiencies.
  • Managing and reducing costs.
  • Saving energy.
  • Preserving historical character.

Designing memorable public buildings and infrastructure requires looking beyond the here and now and imagining how communities can be strengthened through careful planning and attention to detail.

Our team reinvigorates existing infrastructure with modern programs and amenities that reach beyond the functional criteria and create design solutions that are enjoyable and sustainable. We creatively repurpose buildings and infrastructure by uniting with city and county governments and working alongside community partners. By doing so, we reduce the carbon footprint and preserve the historic character of the communities we serve.

Delivering Long-Lasting Solutions

Our commitment to delivering exceptional outcomes begins with understanding each client’s operational goals and combining them with our expertise to develop unique solutions that consider future evolution. Concurrently, our design process includes resiliency, sustainability, efficiency, safety, and security considerations. Once these matters are thoroughly studied, we examine the context and seek solutions that support the community within the infrastructure asset and beyond.

Whether it’s a space for vehicle storage or a modernized office, we initiate adaptable, practical designs that optimize productivity and support your vision for the future. We prioritize both durability and functional efficiency in our designs. We offer expertise in selecting materials tailored to your requirements, safeguarding equipment and assets, and minimizing maintenance expenses.

Strengthening Communities Through Engaged Collaboration

Our collaborative approach considers your values, enabling us to recommend durable materials. For example, working with key stakeholders for facility projects, we incorporate features like collaborative workspaces, versatile multipurpose rooms, and ample natural daylighting. Through detailed programming and planning processes, our team develops projects that utilize the project sites and facilities to their full potential and create spaces that inspire those who use them.

Inclusivity is key to our design process, ensuring that stakeholders are heard. This approach enables the design team to create solutions that accommodate everyone’s needs.

Working together, we can overcome today’s most pressing challenges to build more resilient and thriving communities.
