A large meeting space accommodates both police training and community uses. Mackenzie provided comprehensive A/E services, working within a CM/GC project delivery method.Learn more

Concordia University Hilken Community Stadium

Concordia University retained Mackenzie to design a new sports soccer and baseball field facility. The University desired a facility that would attract talented athletes and serve as a source of pride for both the University and the surrounding community. The field orientations and dimensions for the 1,200-seat stadium were based on Concordia University staff recommendations and NCAA/NAIA standards.

For instance, the soccer and baseball fields have separate entrances and entry plazas, and...Learn more

Canby Police Station

Subsequent to an unsuccessful bond measure in 2008, the City of Canby and Canby Urban Renewal Agency hired Mackenzie to develop a new needs assessment for the City Police Department. The bond measure failed primarily due to project construction cost and the declining economy; the team set out to work with Canby Police and the Agency to reevaluate program needs and reduce the size and cost of the project.
