Bringing safety to the heart of our communities
Public safety facilities are the civic backbone of the communities in which we live...
Their purpose is to provide safety, security, and peace of mind to community residents. As designers of civic buildings, we have the opportunity and responsibility to participate in the exercise of city building, setting of standards for urban regeneration, and re-definition of the public realm. We design people-oriented spaces for our clients that effectively support efficient operation for today and tomorrow. Our collaborative design process engages clients and the community to develop a building that not only serves its program objectives but also takes cues from its context, history, and culture to truly connect to, and enhance, its community. We balance a sense of openness with the very real need for security through program adjacencies, systems, and technology. Our designs for justice clients are beacons of community accessibility, our courthouse buildings evoke civic pride, our forensic facilities support scientific discovery, and our infrastructure for emergency and fire services is empowered with the technology to deliver help where needed as quickly as possible.
