From essential services to spaces that bring your community together, we’ve supported dozens of municipalities and other public clients.
celebrating your civic spirit
Our civic work showcases our deep familiarity with public partners, including your unique requirements for safety, ease of use, accessibility, and stewardship.
Whether your next project is a library, fire station, courthouse, or city hall, we’ll work with you every step of the way and find the best solution to serve your community.
We know that your civic buildings are visible and tangible elements of your services. We’ll make sure your next project adapts to your needs and embodies your civic spirit.
Designing for the future
leading sustainable design
As architects for what will be the first net zero public safety building in the region, we know what’s possible in making municipal buildings more sustainable. It’s an investment that’s within reach for even public entities – one that will pay dividends for decades.
Sustainable design is embedded in our practice because of the layers of cost savings, efficiency, and environmental benefits. No matter what your sustainability goals are, we’ll partner with you and explore the ways to reach them.
