Civic Architecture in New Jersey

Cornerstone of Community

When you enter into the construction of civic buildings and infrastructure, you become part of the story of your community. Works of civic architecture are pillars in governance, education, and public services like healthcare and transportation ー pillars that may stand for decades or even centuries. When called upon for such projects, civic architecture firms must consider which form, function, and design elements will best represent and serve your community for generations.

SSP Architects bring nearly a century and a half of experience to guide the process of civic architecture.

Civic architecture applies to buildings such as:

  • City & Town Halls
  • Schools
  • Care Facilities & Hospitals
  • Train Stations
  • Libraries
  • Public squares, plazas, and markets
  • Bridges and other infrastructure
  • Police, Fire, and EMS stations

These are important features. Since civic architectural spaces are built to endure changing times, they are major investments in the future.

SSP’s Experience Stands the Test of Time

Since 1891, SSP Architects have been helping citizens design important elements of their communities in New Jersey. We’ve designed schools, community wellness centers, and one of New Jersey’s most iconic public stadiums, the home of the Somerset Patriots baseball team.

You should consult the services of an experienced and reputable civic architecture firm when constructing spaces to serve your community, across generations of its citizens
