Public facilities are the lifeblood of our communities, providing the essential spaces to deliver vital services, support civic engagement, and facilitate gathering. Our civic team is dedicated to building the spaces that help communities thrive.

Above and Beyond

From government administrative buildings to laboratories and mission critical facilities, civic spaces serve a wide range of functions. Yet all share a common need for a high level of collaboration and transparency throughout the project delivery process. From award-winning projects like the Santa Clara Animal Services Shelter and the LifeMoves Mountain View transitional housing community to Bay Area county government buildings, our team has a reputation for going beyond simply meeting the contractual requirements of a project and driving creative solutions like specialized procurement or phased delivery to maximize value to the community.
