Stratus has vast experience in providing architecture, engineering, and surveying services for a multitude of states and localities. We assist state and local government clients with significant projects including site development, infrastructure improvements, drainage, and stormwater management as well as architecture, structural, and M/E/P services. 

Municipal Facilities 

Stratus provides design of facilities for public-sector clients. Markets include educational, judicial, correctional, and government services. Our project management process and permitting expertise deliver high-quality municipal facilities on or under budget and schedule – especially important when managing taxpayer-funded projects. Civic staff have decades of experience designing fire stations, correctional facilities, courthouses, and similar public buildings. Designs meet budget and schedule requirements while complying with all necessary certifications, including LEED sustainable design. 

Parks & Greenspaces 

Stratus offers planning, design, construction, and water resource management services for state and local park and greenspace facilities. We take pride in helping clients enhance the community’s quality of life. Our team offers consulting services for park related projects including athletic fields, buildings, pedestrian bridges and trails, and other amenities. As a full-service architecture and engineering firm, Stratus can execute projects efficiently by providing Parks and Recreation Departments with broad expertise under one roof. 


An essential part of every development project is the planning for adequate water and wastewater utility systems. Planning determines whether the project can access existing systems or whether new ones must be developed.  Stratus offers design services for all kinds of water and wastewater systems, including water treatment, water storage, water distribution systems, wastewater treatment, wastewater pump stations, gravity sewers and force mains. Design services also cover other utilities such as natural gas, electrical power, and telecommunications systems. Each plan is carefully designed to meet both construction and regulatory requirements. Stratus’ broad experience provides the skills necessary to face any challenge that may occur during the design and construction process.
