Public Architecture should reflect the history, context, culture, communities and the natural environment we live in.
Public spaces are the social, intellectual and operational centers of our culture – and architecture, planning and interior design play a critical role in presenting our culture. At Pond, we approach each project with consideration for the human experience through the use of inspired design, place making, sustainable and energy efficient features and innovative use of technology.
Our approach is based on collaboration and civic engagement. We listen to the concerns of civil leaders, staff and the community, and addresses them by appropriately resolving complex functional, technical and operational requirements.
Our exceptionally experienced staff of professionals brings innovative problem solving that meets government procurement standards and delivery methods, including traditional design, design-build and construction management. Emphasis is placed on exceptional design, cost control, quality, maintainability and sustainability.
