But in many ways, governmental development projects really are unlike any others. They include design and security requirements not present on other projects. Since taxpayer money is being used to fund the project, budget concerns are rightfully heightened. Additional time constraints and compliance issues must be addressed. At KDC, we understand the unique nature of working with a governmental agency, because we’ve done it many times before.
Governmental buildings need to be attractive and well designed, but they can’t be over-the-top. We work with architects with extensive governmental experience to ensure the proper mix of understated design and technical superiority.
Governmental projects typically require a higher level of security than a normal office building. But the building still needs to appear approachable since it is a public facility. We use a team of designers and consultants to best balance security needs with approachability.
Respect for taxpayer dollars
KDC insists that designs be both elegant and memorable, but also meet the technical requirements of the client.
Like the government, KDC is committed to sustainable design practices. We are a leader in green development which fits well with the government’s requirements for implementing sustainable design in all its facilities.
