Dewberry is one of the leading firms in the nation in the design of recreation and wellness facilities for hospitals, communities, and colleges and universities. Our broad expertise ranges from medically based wellness facilities designed to appeal to all ages to campus recreation centers that engage students, faculty, and staff with a variety of amenities and resources.

High Impact, High Performance

Our comprehensive services help clients realize a host of objectives for these dynamic, multipurpose buildings. Our integrated architectural and interior design services result in lively spaces that are also durable and low-maintenance. Our mechanical/electrical engineers are proficient in the design of energy-efficient, comfortable, and sustainable buildings, while our site/civil professionals and landscape architects create striking, well-planned environments for these community and campus destinations.

A Focus on Wellness

We have worked closely with clients and facility users to optimize the fitness environment and create spaces that are warm, welcoming, and non-intimidating. Our experience in medically based facilities enables us to support clients seeking to incorporate health and wellness elements such as instructional areas; therapy, assessment, and clinical spaces; and demonstration spaces for cooking and other classes.

Our experience includes exercise suites, specialized training areas, aquatic centers, and field houses, along with amenities such as childcare areas and cafés.
