No two projects are alike. We’ve been building innovative facilities in the five-state area of the Upper Midwest for over six decades, and through our wide experience and passion for our work, we’ve learned that the best way for us to make the perfect structure is to listen to our clients and to communicate with complete transparency.



The job of a commercial design firm during the design process for any project is to learn your unique project goals, and then deliver a project that meets those goals.

As one of the few commercial architecture firms in the area that offer an architect-led design-build experience, we make sure to collaborate with you and your team to ensure that everything is exactly right before moving forward with construction. This attention to detail has earned us a project completion rate of 98.8%, something unheard of in an industry where less than 64% of projects — with plans — ever see completion.


A Collaborative Construction Experience

As a commercial construction firm, we recognize our clients have different needs. Some clients may want to simply point to a plot of land and wait until we hand them the keys to their new building, others want to be involved in every step of the process.

Many clients, for example, have local contractors or subcontractors they’ve worked with in the past or whose services they trust. When this is the case, we work hard to collaborate with your people and integrate their talents, skills and efforts into your project.

The modern work environment is vastly different than what it was before the turn of the century. Our design for River Valley Church’s central offices was inspired by collaboration and versatility.

Golden Valley Town Square

This commercial center in Golden Valley is tucked within a residential development, so our focus was to complement the look of the neighborhood with subtle, modern retail shops. The 40,000-square-foot development not only fits seamlessly with its surroundings, but it can accommodate 156 cars.
