SDC, INC. has served the western South Dakota and Black Hills area with architectural and consulting services since 1996.  Founded by Robert J. Schlimgen, a long time residence of the Rapid City Area for 58 years and has family ties with the area since 1928. SDC, Inc. is currently licensed in South Dakota and has been recently licensed in Nebraska, further adding to the reaches of a successful Architectural Business.

     SDC, INC. has experience in a diverse range of architectural project types. These projects types include; office, educational, religious, public projects, hotel/motel, warehouses, manufacturing, restaurant/lounges and residential. These projects have been completed with government agencies, state agencies, commercial investors and the private sector. The company also provides consulting relative to code analyses and project management.

     SDC, INC. has a reputation for providing projects to clients as promised. We strive to produce projects that are delivered on time, in budget and with the needs of the client met. We do not produce projects that seek to emphasize our architectural prowess, but rather projects that perform to the highest possible level for our clients. We strongly believe in the philosophy “Form should follow the function”, and therefore fill our client’s needs regarding use and then bring the project to the level of aesthetics that is desired and appropriate.  The benefit of working with SDC, Inc. begins with the time we spend up front with our clients. Being a small architectural firm, gives us the ability to focus on the details of the project earlier on, which help our clients, our consultants and the contractors we are working with to all be more confident that the design is thought out and complete, which results in a better building &  product in the end.
