The role of civic architecture extends beyond the core programmatic requirements of a building.
Well-designed civic buildings help promote identity and enduring legacy in the communities for which they serve.
Davis & Floyd’s long-standing involvement with communities is reflected in its design of civic projects, which have included a transportation terminal, museum/aquarium, conservation and laboratory facility, and community centers. We are experienced in working with and listening to communities for valuable input on high-profile projects. Charettes, public meetings, and renderings are used to convey the project vision and involve all stakeholders. We incorporate the most sophisticated and powerful computer software available in the architecture and engineering industry to aid in our presentations and designs.
The architectural and engineering rigor required for civic buildings is as important as stakeholder communication. Working with local, state, and federal regulations/agencies as well as International Building Codes and LEED sustainable practices is typically required. Davis & Floyd has experience in designing these facilities to meet all seismic and hurricane requirements as well as the ability to design essential facilities that meet the highest code standards for emergency operation.
