Schemmer's Des Moines Office Flourishes with the City
In 2010, Schemmer's Des Moines office opened its doors to better serve our clients and expand our geographic reach with an additional location. The City of Des Moines has a long history of being recognized for its reasonable business costs, strong economic outlooks and a solid quality of life. In addition, that very same year Des Moines was named #1 on Forbes Best Places for Business and Careers. Throughout the past decade, the City’s rankings have ranged from first to thirteenth, but always consistently making the list. This year, the Greater Des Moines Partnership announced that the Greater Des Moines area was once again the fastest-growing major Midwest metro area. Moreover, the area grew 1.6 percent in 2018, according to population estimates released by the U.S. Census Bureau. Above all, Schemmer is proud to be part of a city that continues to thrive and remain successful.
While the City has been flourishing, Schemmer’s Des Moines office has experienced the same success.
Our staff has doubled in size. We now have six architects and a civil engineer busy at work serving numerous markets across the United States such as:
- Senior Living
- Multi-Family Housing
- Local and State Government Agencies
Our firm continues to expand our capabilities and service offerings for our clients. Some local projects include:
- State of Iowa Department of Administration Alcoholic Beverage Distribution Warehouse Expansion | Ankeny, IA
- Golden Grain Energy Office Building | Mason City, IA
- Department of Veterans Affairs Community Living Cottages | Des Moines, IA

In conclusion, we look forward to celebrating our 10th Anniversary in Des Moines next year. Thanks to our clients and business partners, Schemmer has enjoyed many years of prosperity in the community. As with any successful Company, we wouldn't be where we are without our dedicated employees.
