Government + Institutional

Ghafari creates and restores spaces that play an important role in cities, states, and nations.

Serving the Public Good

Our governmental and institutional spaces are thoughtfully designed to serve public leaders and their communities.

We work with institutions at the local, state, and federal levels to create spaces that support community leaders and members. Over the past several decades, our team has gained a thorough understanding of the nuanced challenges within the government sector. We approach each project carefully, cooperating with industry partners and using advanced methods to stay on schedule and on budget. Every step of the way we elevate safety, sustainability, and longevity. We also see to it that each project is as unobtrusive as possible so that community leaders can stay focused on the needs of their constituents. Whether we’re designing a dynamic community center or restoring an iconic government building, we tailor the project and process to help each client achieve their mission.

Historic preservation with modern technology.
