Civic projects include a multitude of public and community project types such as churches, transportation facilities, cultural centers, libraries, conservation centers, and parks. They are extensions of the community, serving as a stage where we can interact with each other. Essentially, they bring people together. They are also the “story tellers” of construction project types. They communicate the history of a place, a time, and a people.
These projects sometimes involve historic buildings that can be viewed as an anchor for a city or community. We have been involved in preserving and improving historical buildings, as well as demolition of something that cannot be saved and blending the construction of the new building with its older neighbors.
At Carl A. Nelson & Company, we have found that whether we're working as design-builder, construction management agency, construction manager at-risk or general contractor, civic projects are most important because they serve everyone regardless of social, cultural or economic difference.
