Structures built for education must be extremely flexible due to the multiplicity of uses they require and the ever-changing nature of the profession.
While they must be adaptable to changing technology, they must be inviting, accommodating and conducive to learning. In addition, they must be durable and designed for a long life span.
And almost always, these goals must be met on a limited budget. SRJ’s three decades of experience in this challenging field enable us to deliver our clients exceptional facilities that fulfill their goals ... within their budget.
Public sector institutions and agencies by definition exist to serve citizens, and the structures that house them should be designed to further that goal.
SRJ designed public buildings are on a human scale. The goal is to create an environment that helps the institutions they house serve their constituencies while never losing sight of the convenience of those who work there.
Our planning and design process always draws from the various parties involved, distilling their input down to the essentials that go into creating spaces that reflect their goals and allow them to best serve their public.
A multi-family facility should feel no less like "home" for its residents than any other freestanding or single-family dwelling. At the same time, multi-family facilities, out of necessity, must operate under different conditions and circumstances. For decades, our goal here at SRJ has been to create spaces that exhibit all the qualities and amenities of a comfortable home while taking every maintenance and economic factor into consideration.
Our multi-family facilities are designed to be comfortable while also withstanding abuse and neglect that can sometimes be characteristic of rentable spaces. We have completed hundreds of public housing modernization projects and multiple new affordable housing developments. We pride ourselves on attention to detail and our knowledge of the various challenges associated with multi-family projects.
The design of a religious structure should reflect the values of its congregation and encourage reverence, fellowship and worship.
At the same time, it must be comfortable and accessible. Beauty and function should work together to make a church a place people want to be.
SRJ designs of religious facilities embody all these values, while keeping a careful eye on the cost control so critical to those entrusted with the stewardship of funds donated by the faithful.
SRJ now stands at the forefront in 3D rendering. Renderings allow our clients to visualize our designs in realistic 3D images. We can create full 3D walk-throughs of spaces, before they are ever constructed, to give our clients accurate visualizations of the proposed design. We remain up-to-date and prepared with the newest advanced software that enhances our design process as a whole.
