+ GOVERNMENT DBR’s government portfolio demonstrates our experience with a wide range of municipal, state, and federal facilities. We work closely with government agencies to understand their missions and how each facility will support their work efficiently. Our experience includes new and renovated City Halls, Courthouses, Police, Fire Stations, and Emergency Medical Service (EMS) Stations, as well as many others that perform vital functions for the communities we live in.
Government facilities are under constant scrutiny to do more with less. Our engineers understand this challenge and have worked together with a wide range of government organizations to ensure the right balance is struck between efficiency and functionality. Furthermore, our engineering solutions promote forward-thinking and positive growth that distinguishes each municipalities’ identity.

This space includes a renovated shrine area for national heroes and a new and expanded heroes pavilion.
