Community Spaces

Community Centers, Churches, Libraries, Performing Arts, and Recreation Facilities are what bond communities and families together. These facilities provide places to socialize, worship, exercise and embrace the communities we live in. We recognize the importance of these unique facilities and their communities.

Each of these facilities requires unique humidity control and acoustics, which play a large role in the MEP design of these special buildings. Without proper humidity control, visitors will be uncomfortable and artifacts, artwork, and books will not last as long. Without proper acoustics, echoed noises will disrupt the enjoyment of the show, book, or gallery. The majority of the education facilities we design include a library, gymnasium, and a performing arts area. Over the course of the past five years, a lot of these facilities are being shared with the community when schools aren’t open. We have been designing community spaces and the special engineering requirements for them for over 30 years.
