General Process

Maclay Architects led a team of eight consultants, nine state departments, and various other stakeholders through the design and planning of this project. At the start of the project, a collaborative effort between the architect, the commissioning agent, the mechanical engineer, and the owner identified the Owner’s Project Requirements for the project. Subsequently, meetings with stakeholders and state department leaders established the program and required adjacencies for the building. Once the building program, functional adjacencies, and Owner’s Project Requirements were understood and agreed upon, the design team was able to use these tools to help guide the decision making process, This clarity helped the large team execute a complicated design in a relatively short time frame.
