#tbt On April 26, 1999, Origin Design (formerly IIW) became an ESOP. Co-founders Carl Schoenhard & Dennis Waugh (pictured) originally enacted the ESOP as a way to secure the future of the company following Schoenhard's retirement. Now over 20 years later, Origin Design is 100% employee owned.
Maintaining and improving infrastructure is critical to the communities we serve and the day-to-day lives of residents. Resilient, efficient and cost-effective design solutions are a top priority.
Through the design process, our State, County and Local government clients play an integral role as they balance the needs of the communities they serve and being good stewards of taxpayer dollars.
Origin Design has a long history of delivering innovative solutions and building trust with the community and community leaders. We understand the importance of meeting deadlines and budget requirements. We’re familiar with permitting and review processes, local & state codes and standards, as well as funding programs and submitting competitive applications.
From a multi-million dollar DOT-funded roadway project or new community fire station to a county trail or bridge inspection, our full-service design team can help you get started.
