The Benefield Project


Design with Purpose

The Benefield project is a community effort from start to finish.

While Citizen HKS is donating its design services throughout the duration of the project, more help is needed to get the job done.

i+s and BUILDINGS are looking for donated in-kind products, furnishings and materials or reduced rates for needed items.
