2022 Year in Review

What a Year!

Lerin Loos, Managing Partner

This was a growing year for SDG Architecture. We hired two talented designers, Steve Collins & Chris Graham, adding 40+ years of architectural design experience to the group. We also added an administrative assistant, Suzie Lopes who brings digital marketing and photography experience to the team. SDG is now a crew of 15 and we look forward to adding more in the new year to meet our industries demand in the area. 

We completed over 200 projects varying from hotels, restaurants, waterfront homes and remodels lead by Rich Badders, Rod Collman and Tim Gilpin.

We had some promotions this year, two new Project Managers, Jerry Angel & Jonathan Poole. Scott McClelland our residential architect has also been busy building relationships, creating pleasing designs and meeting timelines keeping Shorelines Design Group on top. Rod Collman, President of SDG Architecture announced Lidiya Angelova to be his architect apprentice. Rod looks forward to teaching her the ropes and helping her get certified by 2025. We are so proud of everyone here at SDG and will continue to promote the talent we have.

Suzie and I had the privilege to visit some of our clients and see the finished products. We loved hearing how satisfied they are. A couple favorites are featured below.

Waterfront homes are our specialty, but we are taking off in the hotel industry and our future is so bright!

“SDG has new projects in the hotel & restaurant space, with a personal history in the hospitality industry, I’m excited to collaborate on these new projects.”

In 2019 we began designing a new hotel primarily for use by the Toronto Blue Jays baseball team. This project is personally special for me because I have been working for this ball team since 1977 when they chose Dunedin for their home away from home. My most recent assignment for the Blue Jays was to help in the development of the new state-of-the-art 100,000 square foot Player Development Complex on Garrison Road in Dunedin and the remodel of the stadium that I designed in the 1980’s.

For the last forty-five years the team players were housed outside of the city because of a lack of space. Now we are pleased to announce that after two years of design and City approvals we have completed construction drawings for a sixty-three-room hotel as a local residence for players while here in town. Ground is broken and we will assist in bringing this project to completion in 2023.

SDG Architecture is also excited about building a long-term relationship with Sheraton Sand Key. We are tasked with the first two phases of renovating 490 guest rooms and replacing the existing Mediterranean looking exterior finish system with a more modern look. We look forward to phase three, assisting with a new restaurant design and renovations at the beach front amenities.
