JUSTICE

Justice projects present unique challenges in consideration of critical factors such as advanced security and life safety systems, complex circulation paths, intense material durability and destructibility issues and economies in operational costs.  CWPA’s many years of justice work has instilled in us an ever-present eye for safety and security issues. It is a part of our Firm’s culture. Our long standing experience with this specialized project type allows us a rare ability to work effectively with owners and operators to define their long term needs, establish project budgets, and create realistic concepts that improve the operations, aesthetics, and sustainability of these special purpose buildings.   The design of justice facilities should result in appropriate, timeless spaces that reflect the ideals and standards of the essential public services they provide.  Vast experience with justice design standards allows CWPA to implement successful designs that provide cost-effective solutions, address the paramount need for progressive security, uphold the character of their communities, promote staff retention, and provide functionality and flexibility.

 

"Al Povondra met with us early, and often, and came up with a design layout that was very well done and included everything we needed and wanted. His expertise and guidance along the way was invaluable and greatly appreciated."
