INSTITUTIONAL PROGRAMMING

Community Circle has worked with healthcare, educational and other institutions working with stakeholders in pre-design phases, taking their input and “translating” it into a space program.  Additionally, Community Circle has conducted evaluations of buildings, post-design, working with stakeholders to determine how well a building meets its design goals, what to replicate in future designs, what to avoid, and what to improve.

The following are projects that Community Circle either led or was a key member of a team that completed the program.
