Awards & Recognition

Company Profile

  Schlimgen Design Consultants, Inc. (SDC, Inc.) is a small architectural design firm based in Rapid City, SD.  Formed in 1996, SDC, Inc. has broad experience with a diverse range of architectural project types including; manufacturing, maintenance & warehouse buildings, new and remodeled office & educational buildings, churches, restaurants & lounges, public works projects, hotels/motels, and private residences.  Projects have been completed for local, state, and federal agencies, commercial investors, companies in the private sector, and individual homeowners.  Our personnel have more than 80 years of combined experience in architectural design, the writing of specifications, and construction management.
  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 that “form should follow function”.  With that philosophy, we satisfy our client’s needs regarding usability and then bring the project to a level of aesthetics that is desired and appropriate.
We understand the direct relationship between efficient design of the work environment and the final product of those designs.  Over the life of a building, poor layout, improper specifications, extra steps, dead or under-utilized space adds up to countless time and money wasted.
  Over the years, we have collaborated with numerous mechanical, electrical, structural, and civil engineering design firms in the successful completion of a broad range of projects.  We select our consultants carefully and contract only with those firms that have qualified personnel with experience in the type of project under consideration.
  One of the benefits of working with SDC, Inc. is the direct access each client has to design and decision making personnel.  We maintain a “flat” organizational structure that encourages our employees to rely upon their broad experience to solve problems and deal with code, design, specification, and construction issues.
  Additionally, we pride ourselves on our attention to detail.  This  insures that our clients, consultants, and contractors are confident that the designs we have created are well thought out and complete.  We have a reputation for providing projects to clients as promised - on time and within budget.
