The history of Schmidt Associates is as fun and colorful as the principals who direct the office. These creative yet practical people lead a firm that opened on the nation’s bicentennial, July 4, 1976, and was founded on the principle of Servant Leadership. That core value shapes the firm’s extensive community service and teaches them to put the client first, to walk in the Owner’s shoes. That’s why buildings designed or renovated by Schmidt Associates reflect the goals and cultures of the client’s organizations—not the designer.
Being engaged in their work and having fun while they’re at it leads them to create engaging spaces where people are inspired to be and do their best.
