“It’s a benefit to our clients that have regional businesses that we regularly work across the broader upper Midwest,” Quinn Hutson, Principal, CNH Architects
With individuals licensed in nine states, CNH Architects has offered its services across a substantial swath of the Midwest, as well as in Colorado and South Carolina.
With that reach, still more than 80 percent of its work impacts the building landscape of Minnesota.
“We are not strictly a metro architectural firm, or even just Minnesota,” said CNH Principal Quinn Hutson.
A colored map with states gives a birds-eye view. The darkest blue represents the region
with the greatest density of projects, with a wide band encompassing Interstate 94 from the Fargo, N.D. area southeast to the Twin Cities. From there, it balloons out into western Wisconsin and southeast Minnesota.
“There’s a focus in the metro and another grouping around the Alexandria area,” said Hutson. The closeness to major highways is more based on population and density of business, he explains.
The second shade of dark blue represents additional projects that are less densely distributed. It covers most of Minnesota, much of Iowa and bellies out further into western Wisconsin, Missouri and North Dakota.
Much of the firm’s work has resulted from repeat and referral business, which can lend itself to higher job concentrations in particular areas.
“It’s a benefit to our clients that have regional businesses that we regularly work across the broader upper Midwest,” said Hutson.
