Program Management

SGB and Yates first joined forces in 2005 on a $35 million effort that replaced housing on the Gulf Coast, destroyed by Katrina. It involved coordination of multiple state agencies and federal government but was delivered ahead of schedule and under budget. That success, coupled with SGB’s 29-year history working with the BPSB, and Yates’ 10 year/$8 billion in construction management experience, gives our joint venture the tools to deliver K-12 schools, from programming to design to construction.

SGB Architects L.L.C. believes that the successful completion of any architectural project requires a well-balanced combination of design, management, and practical experience. Founded in Bossier City in 1982 as Schuldt Associates by Arthur J. Schuldt, Jr., SGB designs a wide range of building types including churches, educational facilities, libraries, retail and multi-family housing.

SGB’s practice is wide ranging and extends from Puerto Rico to Montana. Since Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, we have established a concentrated effort in re-building housing along the Gulf Coast. The firm has experienced steady growth and to date has over $50 million worth of design work under contract.

Long before a project reaches the drawing board, we get involved. Several steps in the architectural process become essential services—from site evaluation, master planning, and zoning through community, environmental or historic preservation concerns. We pride ourselves on our ability to create a total environment:  balancing and integrating elements such as the surrounding area, site planning, aesthetics, function, flexibility, energy consumption and life cycle costs.

Safety. Integrity. Passion. Commitment.
