providing innovative design ideas to help our clients achieve their strategic goals

Dougherty County Public Library Northwest Branch

Albany, GA

This new 16,000 square foot public library branch opened fall of 2009. It is Albany’s first architectural project seeking LEED Certification. This responsible design effectively utilized an existing building shell and brought new life to a vacant building and lot. It incorporates energy efficient lighting and mechanical systems as well as interior finishes that were selected to minimize negative impact on indoor air quality. Key features of the design are an audio/video area, computer lab, general collection area, and children’s space. A coffee shop and display wall for community art were also incorporated to give more opportunity for public interaction.

Dougherty County Employee Clinic

Albany, GA

This project is a build out of an existing 1,554 square foot space for a Clinic to serve Dougherty County employees. The space was previously used as a coffee shop. The new Clinic includes two exam rooms, lab, pharmacy, ADA restroom, waiting room, staff office with record storage, and a staff break room.

Dougherty County Health Department

Albany, GA

Many high-traffic public health clinics can be dehumanizing places. Our goal was to create a one-story building with easy access for first-time visitors and the disabled.

In order to reduce this 62,000-square- foot health department to a human scale, two major corridors divide the building into four quadrants, with four major entrances. Each entrance leads directly to one of the quadrants occupied by health providers. Each health provider entrance and hallway is highlighted by an interior skylighted submall.

Dougherty County EMS Westover Building

Commercial & Public Sector

Public sector institutions and agencies by definition exist to serve citizens, and the structures that house them should be designed to further that goal.

SRJ-designed public buildings are on a human scale. The goal is to create an environment that helps the institutions they house serve their constituencies while never losing sight of the convenience of those who work there.

Our planning and design process always draws from the various parties involved, distilling their input down to the essentials that go into creating spaces that reflect their goals and allow them to best serve their public.
