About YOUR ISG

One Firm. Ten Offices. Endless Solutions.

Commitment

True and responsive expertise—these qualities are the foundation on which ISG was built in 1973. Now, we stand as a nationally recognized multi-disciplinary design and engineering firm. Tenacity, empathy, and ingenuity all sum up how we strive to be Your ISG.


Focus

Empathy
We strive to see things from your perspective, and provide expertise and advice to improve your condition.

Relationships
Relationships are at our core. We learn more when we listen, and we deliver better results from those two-way, connected relationships.

True + Responsive Expertise
The original, simple foundation to our success dating back to 1973.

Aspirations
All of us have them, and they can be different, but as a firm, we are the sum of our collective aspirations.

Winning
Winning is the tangible result of being selected, and doing "it" right. Making the basket is where the points are, but doing it repetitively comes from great assist makers. Winning provides inspiration. Inspiration provides results.

Contextual Design
We have developed an ISG process to deliver quality solutions that meet or exceed a client's vision. Context is merely taking in all of the factors beyond four walls - site, community, image, goals, future, connectivity, etc.

Alternative Analysis
Alternative analysis requires one option to always be what the client asks, but two more that may enhance or alter their way of thinking. It's a unique balance between empathy and expertise, driven by context and the client.

Better Decisions, Faster
Develop consensus sooner. Draw a sketch, investigate an idea, and agree before committing big resources on an errant path; we seek to foster a better decisions mentality mindset.

Agility
Yesterday can look like today, and today can look like tomorrow, but when you look over the course of 2-5 years, you recognize quickly that things are dynamic, not static. We are dynamic and come with a drive and willingness to focus on what matters most; listening, building trust, investing, developing, designing, and growing.
