Stone Group Architects
by Amy Bruner, Marketing Director
If there's one thing Todd Stone has learned since launching the South Dakota-based Stone Group Architects in 2012, it's that no two days are ever the same.
Under normal circumstances, that's a good thing – a way to ensure that everyone stays on their toes. These days, the word "normal" no longer applies.
Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Stone and his team have jumped in the fray, by providing technical assistance for makeshift clinics in hotels and event centers, and they are currently remodeling existing hospital spaces to serve as isolation wards for patients.
"In a crisis and on the battlefield, you want to empower your entire team to think and act for themselves, because leaders aren't always standing next to you," says Stone, a retired U.S. Army master sergeant. "That's serving us well right now."
Given the company's status as a Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business, much of Stone's work involves upgrades, remodels and additions to VA Hospital facilities throughout the Midwest – though the firm is equipped to handle projects in a myriad of other sectors.
