The buildings that make up the landscape of our daily lives seem like permanent fixtures, fastened to a time and place. But what if that didn’t have to be true? What if our built environment — where we live, learn, play, and work — carried us forward instead?

Our Buildings practice keeps people at its heart, recognizing that our shared journey forward is shaped by the meaningful and responsive places we design. From small practical designs to complex iconic designs and everything between, join us to bring transformational building solutions to life. Every day we apply our expertise, creativity, and passion to propel communities into the future.

The Civic | Industrial Studio offers services for all phases of the project life cycle, from pre-project planning through detailed design and analysis to the end of commissioning. This is where great ideas and rewarding careers are built. Exercising creativity and ingenuity, our team develops unique solutions for our clients that integrate people, materials, equipment, and information in productive ways.

A key factor in the success of the Civic | Industrial Studio has been our commitment to a fully integrated architecture & engineering design approach, where information and ideas are shared freely, and decisions and direction are communicated effectively. This approach provides us with a better overall understanding of the challenges and opportunities inherent in our projects, and our clients benefit from the robust, integrated design solutions that are developed. This commitment begins with everyone in the Studio. Equally important are the engineers who provide direction and support to our multi-disciplinary team to ensure continued success, improvement and growth.
