Why Choose Us

  • For each design market we serve, we bring a wealth of experience, design and performance data, and an understanding of programming and environmental needs for each project type.
  • SDG’s commitment to design excellence has been recognized with multiple awards for both quality of work and social impact.
  • Our proprietary Project Definition Manual process allows the scope of a project to be defined thoroughly, alleviating client concerns about budget and final design.


SDG’s process begins with the client’s vision and ends with the delivery of an innovative and high quality product. Our architectural staff works to facilitate the realization of our client’s design and functional needs through its unique Project Definitional Manual process, an inherent focus on quality, effective interaction, and skillful delivery. Close attention to detail is embedded in SDG’s internal culture.


The design of place and space is an interactive process between the architect, owner, and end-user. This process is always unique to the particular project and client. SDG takes a leadership role in the concept design and development phases of the planning process to ensure effective and timely delivery of the end product within budget.
