ISG officially opens doors in Sioux Falls
SIOUX FALLS — As of Feb. 1, ISG officially opened its doors in the Lumber Exchange Building in downtown Sioux Falls. As announced by the Governor’s Office of Economic Development in December 2017, the firm’s new office solidifies an established presence in the state with current projects already serving multiple markets ranging from education and agriculture, to industrial and commercial.
This office addition follows a recent strategic acquisition of Iowa-based architecture and interior design firm, StruXture Architects, adding to the firm’s industry recognized architects and interior designers. With over 260 professionals within the soon to be 45 year-old employee-owned firm, ISG’s South Dakota presence will positively impact a robust current client list, in addition to expanding accessibility for new opportunities.
“Going west and having the chance to physically support one of the top 50 fastest growing city’s in the U.S. is truly a monumental milestone for our firm,” states Chad Surprenant, ISG president and CEO. “Sioux Falls is growing rapidly, but strategically, and this mindset perfectly aligns with ISG’s pace, experience, and exposure. We want to positively embrace all that makes South Dakota unique while utilizing our multi-disciplinary team of professionals to empower clients and partners alike. It’s not our first time here – and our roots run deep. We are all in.”
Seasoned leader and seven-year ISG principal, David Doxtad, will lead the new South Dakota office and continue the firm’s mission that is focused on simplifying solutions while passionately designing the future. The local office will continue ISG’s full-service offerings and provide opportunity for 25 professionals, with that number expected to triple as the year’s progress.
“The talent within South Dakota is amazing as our firm has been privileged to previously attract and retain experts from neighboring South Dakota State University and University of South Dakota, just to name a few,” notes David. “With our current local architecture and engineering team that have moved from other ISG Midwest offices, we are excited to embrace the Falls and continue to provide amazing growth opportunities,” states David.
A formal ribbon cutting and open house is planned for Spring 2018.
