Wendel, a nationally recognized design, construction and energy services company (ESCO), is pleased to announce the recent acquisition of Architectural Design Group, LLC (ADG), a leader in architectural design and planning in Wisconsin, to enhance its service offering and market reach in the Midwest United States.
ADG’s expertise encompasses healthcare and educational facilities, as well as municipal and public safety services. United by a common culture, Wendel and ADG share a commitment of customer service, collaboration, and sustainable and energy efficient design. Together we have delivered excellence in the fields of architecture, design and construction for over 100 years.
In addition to acquiring ADG, Wendel is also gaining Five Bugles, ADG’s planning and design services division focused solely on the public safety service industry. Five Bugles will become a division of Wendel, retaining its brand and commitment to public safety and emergency services in the Midwest. Wendel plans to take the design expertise Five Bugles brings to all locations across the U.S. where Wendel has a presence.
The expansion to Eau Claire, Wisconsin represents Wendel’s growing geographic footprint and complements the company’s existing presence in nearby Minneapolis, MN, as well as all of the regions where Wendel operates. Joining the Wendel team are 22 staff, including Principals Steve Gausman, AIA, NCARB, David Kimball, AIA, CSI, CCS and David Cihasky, AIA.
“We are truly excited about the growth Wendel is experiencing nation-wide,” said Stewart Haney, President & CEO. “Acquiring ADG and Five Bugles increases our capabilities in the strategic areas that align with our current and future growth plans.”
“Joining forces was a natural fit,” said Steve Gausman, AIA, NCARB. “With Wendel’s deep customer relationships, strong brand, innovative design solutions and a recognized portfolio of best-in-class projects across the nation, we will be able to deliver additional services and added value to our clients as well as provide new opportunities for our employees as part of a larger company.”
