2021 A Year in Review

Happy New Year!

Can you believe 2021 is already over? The start of the new year means it’s time for Strang’s “A Year in Review” where we proudly highlight our client's projects and our achievements throughout the year.



Last year we began 197 new projects! Our team of dedicated architects, engineers, and interior designers have worked to bring our client's design vision to life with each of these projects. Our projects ranged from big to small and included those in the science and technology sector, to financial institutions, educational, and cultural spaces.


Some highlights from the projects we completed in 2021 include Eurofins Food Testing Solutions, Venture Investors, and Ascent Innovation.

Whether a performance space, local office, or a financial institution, our client's facilities were recognized for their design, innovation, or sustainable practices. It is a great honor to have been a design partner on some of the following buildings—we celebrate all of these projects' awards with our clients!


  • Strang - InBusiness Voted Number ONE Commercial Architectural Firm
  • Summit Mt. Horeb - InBusiness Commercial Design Award
  • Hamel Music Center - AGC WI Technology & Innovative Practices Award
  • Strang Madison Office - AGC WI General Contractor Commercial Projects Renovation
  • Strang - Wisconsin State Journal Top Workplaces


This year we were working both from home and the office and we were excited to welcome 15 new faces to Strang in 2021—whether in person or online. From laboratory planners and project managers to architectural designers and a new project administration assistant, we are so glad to have the following Strangr’s join our team. Welcome!
