Firm Builds Upon Client Service Offerings and Expertise through Acquisition

January 4, 2018 (Des Moines, Iowa) – As of January 2, 2018, ISG has joined forces with the reputable architecture and interior design firm, StruXture Architects (StruXture). Based in Waterloo, Iowa, StruXture’s extensive portfolio in the education, government, healthcare, and civic + culture markets will now be complemented and integrated into ISG’s multi-disciplinary team that will soon span four states, with clients nationwide.

“StruXture’s 80+ year legacy has positively evolved over the years with one item remaining a constant – our commitment and focus on clients,” states Craig Schwerdtfeger, AIA, StruXture Architect + Principal. “While planning the next chapter in our evolution, we wanted the opportunity to provide greater depth, increased professional opportunities and stability, and the continuation of a synergistic set of values; ISG has proven to be a solid partner to do just that,” notes Craig.

Through the ISG led acquisition, StruXture will offer current clients additional in-house services backed by the same solid architecture, planning, and interior design expertise that will be complemented by design, engineering, environmental, and planning resources under the ISG umbrella. ISG will in turn expand market expertise, adding to the likes of major Midwest and national clients.

“As a multi-disciplinary firm with 12 unique markets, we’ve always admired StruXture’s intimate understanding of the markets they serve,” states Chad Surprenant, PE, ISG President | CEO. “ StruXture is a highly respected firm and this opportunity will not only allow their clients to have expanded services offerings under one roof, but provide ISG additional expertise that that will build upon our soon to be 45 years of industry experience. It really comes down to sustainability and providing our combined clients more horsepower and expertise,” Chad affirms.

StruXture will continue to provide custom solutions with the noted adding backing brought forth by ISG. Formal ribbon cutting and cobranded efforts will occur over the next several months, in addition to immediately adding talent in both the Waterloo and neighboring ISG Des Moines office, as well as the ISG office in Storm Lake, Iowa.

“Our emphasis is really on our people and clients,” notes Jane Miller, IIDA, LEED AP ID+C, StruXture Principal + Interior Designer. “The progression of this partnership has been so positive and natural as we both share the same core values and focal points. We are really excited to expand our support opportunities. Great things are in store for 2018 and beyond,” notes Jane.
