Legacy Development & Consulting Company will assist DGR Engineering with a new office building in eastern Sioux Falls. Construction on the new 16,000-square-foot building at Dawley Farms near Veteran’s Parkway and 26th Street will begin later this year, with an anticipated occupancy in the fall of 2022.
Founded in 1952, DGR Engineering employs about 150 professionals in three tri-state locations. DGR Engineering’s Sioux Falls staff work on projects in and around Sioux Falls and throughout the region. The company provides civil and site development services, water/wastewater, electrical power, and aviation engineering, as well as providing engineering support services including landscape architecture, land acquisition, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and land surveying.
DGR Engineering opened its first Sioux Falls office in 1973 to best serve the Sioux Falls area and other South Dakota clients. Due to substantial growth in recent years, the current office building located at 57th Street and Southeastern Avenue is no longer adequate for the growing staff. The proposed office building allows DGR Engineering to continue to grow and expand staff and services by more than doubling its office space.
“We are excited to be in a position to need additional space,” said Trent Bruce, Vice President / Sioux Falls Office Manager, DGR Engineering. “We are thankful for our many clients in the region that have favored us with the opportunity to work with them on their projects, which has led to a steady growth in our employee numbers.”
Long-standing Sioux Falls companies are supporting the project and leading the development of DGR Engineering’s new Sioux Falls office building. Legacy Development & Consulting Company, LLC is the development consultant for the project.
“DGR Engineering provides outstanding services across the Upper Midwest, so it’s an honor to partner with them to help develop this state-of-the-art office building in Sioux Falls to support their growing company,” said Norman Drake, President and CEO, Legacy Development & Consulting Company, LLC.
Hoogendoorn Construction, Inc. based in Canton, SD will serve as the general contractor, and Architecture Incorporated of Sioux Falls, SD is the architect on the project.
“We are thankful for the opportunity to grow our relationship with DGR through this project,” said Andrew Eitreim, Vice President and Principal Architect at Architecture Incorporated. “The design reflects DGR’s dedication to quality and provides a better environment for staff to collaborate and deliver for their clients.”
DGR Engineering was recently selected as an honoree by PSMJ Resources, Inc. for inclusion in its 2021 “Circle of Excellence.” DGR Engineering has earned this honor every year since 2014. DGR Engineering has also been selected for a Top Workplaces honor by The Des Moines Register in 2018, 2019 and 2020.
“Continuing our growth as a company by constructing new office space for future additions to our team in Sioux Falls will allow us to continue to provide trusted professional solutions to meet our clients’ needs”, added Bruce.
