Recently, we had the opportunity to attend the 9th Annual Public Works Roundtable hosted by the Las Vegas Chapter of SMPS. It was extremely motivating to hear from the various public works divisions and departments across Clark County on the status of their current projects and hear what they had in planning and development for the next few years.
Attending this roundtable made us reflect on our public works projects and how these experiences and projects have shaped SH Architecture over the past 30-plus years. From completing the Las Vegas Library and Lied Discovery Museum over 25 years ago, to winning the USEDA/CLV Strong Cities Strong Communities Economic Development Plan for the City of Las Vegas just last year, relationships with our community and the departments and divisions responsible for developing such strong buildings are at the core of what it means to SH Architecture to be, relationships based.
The public works projects we have had the opportunity to be a part of with our community partners is a direct result of our firm’s client centric solutions. We understand the unique needs of these clients and what they are looking for in a financially and socially responsible building. We recognize the critical role public works projects play in our community and we never lose focus of that when given the chance to work on these projects. Projects like the RTC Bonneville Transit Center, located in the heart of downtown Las Vegas as part of its redevelopment and revitalization, this landmark transit facility showcases sustainability while serving as a central hub for commuters. We worked closely with the community, end-users and Regional Transportation Commission to understand the needs and goals of the facility and ultimately deliver an award-winning, LEED-gold building that both visitors, residents and employees can be proud of.
The commitment to our community is one of the driving factors for our firm donating over 10,000 man-hours annually to various community partners, charities and non-profit organizations.
Our service to our community is a grassroots effort at SH Architecture and starts with the decision and inspiration of our team members and their desires to make a difference in the community. We have been honored over the past three decades to be a part of great architecture and making this great community a place that is Built to Last.
