Milestones and Moments: Strang’s 2023 in Review

Can you believe another year has flown by? As we bid farewell to 2023, we can’t help but reflect on the journey we’ve had. From welcoming new faces to breaking ground, it’s been a rollercoaster of excitement and success. So, let’s dive into the highlights of Strang’s 2023 and celebrate together!

Stellar Staff

Let’s start with our amazing team. We’ve had some stellar additions to the Strang family this year. Shoutout to Vanessa Bennett, our Tech Support Superstar, Stephanie Wedekind, the Master of Finance & Accounting, Declan McCormick, Architectural Whiz, and Kim Schachte and Angela Van Dyke, our Business Development extraordinaires. Welcome aboard!

And we mustn’t forget to recognize our newly licensed staff who’ve been putting in the hard work. Cheers to Drew Martin for snagging his Architect Mentor Program Certificate at the AIA Wisconsin Convention and Alec Hembree for becoming a LEED Green Associate.

It’s always a privilege to be recognized for our hard work and we take pride in sharing the awards and recognition earned. We have had the pleasure of collaborating with our clients on the following award-winning projects. 

Hold on, there’s more! Strang proudly received the 2023 Business of the Year title from InBusiness Magazine and earned the 2023 title of Top Workplace, courtesy of the Wisconsin State Journal. What can we say, we’re feeling the love – big thanks!

Project Palooza

Projects, projects, projects…we started over 150 projects this year and wrapped up a number of them as well. But let’s highlight some showstoppers – the Wisconsin Youth Symphony Orchestra Headquarters is under construction and set to be completed in early 2024. Iowa State University Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory is ready for action, and the UW-Madison Chemistry Building is already up and running. Oh, and we broke ground at the Landmark Credit Union in Oconomowoc – stay tuned for more news on these noteworthy projects.
