2013 ANNUAL REPORT
Koch Hazard Architects
CEO LETTER In many ways, the last year was one of extremes for Koch Hazard. It was the biggest, as for the City of Sioux Falls, we helped design the $115 million Denny Sanford Premier Center. The smallest as, for the South Dakota Architecture Foundation, we designed the 880 square foot Sioux Falls Design Center. The highest in that we had the opportunity to give a third of our net income and a substantial amount of our time to important communitybuilding activities like Plain Green ‘12 and the Sioux Falls Design Center.
The broadest as we continued to help in Haiti, designing, pro-bono, an orphanage, and in Ghana, helping to design a library and community center. The brightest as we look forward to a future of strategic growth, we have named a new share holder, Keith Thompson, and promoted emerging talent, like Kristen Schulte, to help find new ways to better serve our clients, team and community. We are told that quality, vision and follow-through are the core characteristics of our practice that set us apart. Looking forward, we will strive to strengthen our core and continue to better serve the region’s more discerning clients.
The lowest in that we said farewell to several highly valued staff including Cory Bleyenburg, Angela McKillip and Whitney Parks, who moved on to other places and things.

CLIENTS & PROJECTS
Koch Hazard would be nothing without our great clients, team and community. Our clients set us in motion, literally and figuratively. They present us with their challenges and motivate us to find the innovative, high quality solutions they are seeking. The keys for us are careful listening, getting to the core of the challenge, then transforming the challenge into architecture that is relevant and responsive. Our team is vital. Providing great service to our clients requires the talented, well trained, motivated and conscientious people we have invited to our team. Our community inspires us to think about how to make a better future. We are inspired to design buildings for our clients that last longer, use less energy, have less environmental impact and contribute to the making of better places.

TEAM & CULTURE Teamwork is learning and problem solving together. While not a perfect picture of togetherness, Koch Hazard values sharing knowledge and finding solutions to challenges through teamwork. Design Kitchen explores our work design ideas and the larger design context. Tech Forum is our venue for learning more about the technical aspects of architecture such as building information modeling, code compliance and energy efficiency. KH Academy offers construction site tours, bringing our work alive and closing the feedback loop with design and technical production. Other team building activities include events like pumpkin carving (carved pumpkins are donated to Childrenâ€™s Home Society), Media One FUNski Snow Sculpture competition, a benefit for Childrenâ€™s Inn, and organization of the Plain Green Conference & Speaker Series.
TEAM & CULTURE
plain green Plain Green is a conference and marketplace for green design and ideas. Founded by Koch Hazard and SDSU, Plain Green held its fifth conference in September at the Orpheum Theater.
COMMUNITY & WORLD
It is true that Koch Hazard’s primary purpose is to design great buildings for great clients. But a deeper look reveals our belief that thoughtful design can improve lives. From improved wellness for workers in healthy buildings, to lower crime rates in revitalized neighborhoods, we see that design carries powerful potential. Being part of a community involves taking action for the common good. We realize taking care of our environment is critical and it’s the reason we’ve worked hard to partner with others to create organizations and events that raise awareness about the power of design and sustainability. Sioux Falls Green Project, Plain Green Conference, Chartreuse Bright Green Research, South Dakota Architecture Foundation and the Sioux Falls Design Center all exist to help create a better future for our communities. Koch Hazard’s culture of sharing has also led us to offer our design expertise for schools, orphanages and community centers in developing countries like Haiti and Ghana.
Following Stacey McMahan’s year in Haiti with Architecture for Humanity, Koch Hazard continues her mission in countries like Haiti and Ghana from Sioux Falls.
SOUTH DAKOTA ARCHITECTURE FOUNDATION | SIOUX FALLS DESIGN CENTER
