Government Project Architecture Services
We are a people first, sustainably-minded architectural firm ready to work with local government departments and groups to create a lasting legacy in the Okanagan, British Columbia and Alberta. We are attentive to the needs of all stakeholders and have the resources and corporate governance to see projects through to success.
Success for government projects today is rooted in the following concepts:
- Sustainable architecture
- Budget conscious delivery and planning
- Stakeholder involvement and communciations
Sustainable architecture is about delivering form and function with care and respect for facility users, owners, tax payers, affected communities, and the environment within which the project is delivered. True sustainability is about going beyond even the rigorous list of project requirements and facing stakeholder needs now and in the long term.
Budget conscious delivery and planning is about providing solutions that will provide quality: results on time and on budget. Government departments or commissions, with no inherent architectural expertise, need experience with managing and costing a more complete solution from planning and design to construction. Financing and long term operation of projects are always of concern.
Stakeholder involvement and communications is increasingly important. Not only is transparency and a fair tendering process critical but communities now want to have a say in how public funds are used. Active community members want architectural projects that are visually appealing and sustainable. Furthermore, the owners of the public facility must have their short and long term needs met.
