Dustin Vandeweerd, Director of Facilities, Prairie Meadows
"We set out to make our projects a collaborative effort and Shive‐Hattery excels at this process. Their ability to provide the entire spectrum of design services under one roof streamlines the process and avoids the complication of coordinating between multiple consultants."
"My 29 years of design experience covers a wide array of project types in the hospitality and entertainment industry. My planning and design expertise will help you evaluate long-term goals and tailor signature solutions that will promote the long-term success of your property. My understanding of the design process and ability to transition from 'idea' to 'built form' has helped me facilitate the design and construction of hundreds of millions of dollars in construction value for new and renovation projects across the Midwest."
"One of the best parts of working in the design industry is the people and the relationships (lasting friendships) we develop with colleagues and clients. Everything we do revolves around people!
"It’s really important to listen and gain a deep understanding of the why; what is driving my client, what they want to accomplish, what are their challenges? People appreciate that I really listen to them and advocate for their best interest, which builds trust through the process.
"The translation of the why into the what, by creating spaces that not only support the client’s goals and aspirations, but go beyond expectations, is my true passion!"
