Successful design goes beyond creating functional and attractive spaces. Public buildings have the opportunity to become a place of civic pride. Design that successfully integrates the building and site into the everyday life of a community is better able to serve as a critical hub for aligning people and culture and achieve community goals. Through a collaborative design process CWPA works with community and organization leaders, stakeholders, employees, and users to create public spaces that maximize comfort, safety, security and efficiency with timeless distinction. We strive to provide designs inspired by the unique location, culture, and spirit of the surrounding community.
Our many years of Justice Work has instilled in us an ever-present eye for safety and security. It is a part of our Firm’s culture. And the need for building and occupant security, both active and passive, has become a necessary part of design for virtually every building type.
"I was most impressed with Mike [West]’s professionalism and patience. He represented faithfully all of the concerns of the Yakama Nation. He showed a level of reliability, trust, respect and attention to detail which was so vital for both projects. He was readily available to discuss any and all issues. Despite his distance from the project, he always made himself available and made countless trips to the project site."
