Civic and Public Safety

Building and site designs that maximize functional requirements, meet budget constraints, and last for 50 years or more are priority for our public clients. In the last decade, we have designed more than 40 essential facilities with this understanding. Clients and stakeholders benefit from the depth of experience and expertise concentrated in the professionals on our public projects team. From assistance with early planning to public outreach to full design services, Mackenzie works closely with government officials and stakeholders to develop buildings that promote strong civic pride and enhance community relationships. Jeff Humphreys leads Mackenzie's work in this market sector.
