Architecture for the Public

During the past 34 years PBA has participated in over 75 state and local government planning and design assignments. Over 80% of our services have served public clients. Planning and designing public buildings have been fundamental to the success of our practice. We help local officials identify needs and options and seek solutions that are functional and economical to build and operate and result in pleasant environments.

Our services with respect to government facilities include:

  • Master plans
  • Space, furniture, equipment and staffing projections
  • Building, site analysis and recommendations
  • Cost estimating - for both capital and operations
  • Public information program assistance
  • Award winning facility design including building, interiors, furniture and movable equipment

We enjoy an excellent reputation for successful working relationships with elected officials, staff, citizen advisory groups, and general contractors.

The following is a list of projects illustrating PBA’s accomplishments in state and local government architecture, planning, and other services. Our roles on these projects include planning, architect of record, and associate architect responsibilities.
