It seems that Big Dreams really do come true. Local engineering and community development services firm, Sanderson Stewart, was chosen by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce from a record number of applicants as the Small Business of the Year today at the 10th Annual America’s Small Business Summit in Washington DC. It is a huge honor to be the only Montana-based business, much less to win the top prize, amongst the 100 remarkable companies recognized as Blue Ribbon Winners this year. In February, Sanderson Stewart was notified that they were selected to be one of the 100 Blue Ribbon Award winners after being nominated by the Billings Chamber, where their corporate headquarters are based. In March, they were selected as one of the 7 regional finalists for the DREAM BIG Small Business of the Year. Representatives from the firm traveled to Washington DC to participate in the 10th annual America's Small Business Summit and learned that they won the big prize. After the awards ceremony, Michael Sanderson, President and CEO, said, "Wow! The number one small business in America! It's such a tremendous honor for our exceptionally talented and dedicated team, who are truly the best of the best. So it's very, very satisfying to see them get recognized on the national stage."

From humble beginnings in a Billings garage, Sanderson Stewart was incorporated in 1969 and has since grown to become a regional, award-winning firm with 70 professionals in Billings, Bozeman, and Plains, Montana; Williston, North Dakota, Twin Falls, Idaho, and Denver, Colorado. Following its core purpose, "To Plan and Design Enduring Communities," the company has evolved from a traditional civil engineering and land surveying company into the go-to firm for land development services in the region. While the firm's success has been tied to the various periods of growth and decline in the local economy, the firm has grown through it all to become a strong and stable presence in the communities it serves.

The company's President and CEO, Michael Sanderson; Chairman, Rick Leuthold; and Director of Marketing, Kari Andren were in attendance at the Dream Big Awards Luncheon to receive the award. The DREAM BIG Small Business of the Year Award is sponsored by Sam's Club®. It celebrates the success of small business and honors its contributions to America's economic growth. In addition to the recognition for Sanderson Stewart's professional accomplishments, community leadership, philanthropy, customer service, and employee relations, they received a $10,000 cash prize.

05.15.2014 - Sanderson Stewart, White Dog Developement Group Help Lead Downtown Williston Revitalization

The past decade has been an oily journey for Williston, North Dakota's fastest growing city. Locals have witnessed opportunistic outsiders barrel in, and the prized resource - oil – literally barrel out. These spurts of growth have complicated the region; often giving little regard to the community that proudly claims roots dating back to 1887. Some areas are looking beyond the boom, however. Williston's downtown district has emerged an inspiring example of progress and sustainable development thanks to long-term investments in the community.

Award-winning engineering, planning and community development services firm, Sanderson Stewart, was at the forefront of the revitalization movement when they took a chance and made the former bank at 214 Main Street their Williston branch offices. Remarkably, just a few short months before they moved in, the historic building was a landmark that wasn't terribly easy on the eyes. In fact, it was boarded up and uninhabitable; a casualty of the shortsighted development brought on by the oil rush. While parts of town thrived and grew under this frenzied development, other parts, including much of the historic downtown, suffered from neglect. The dire outlook for 214 changed when Williston newcomers, Eric Ditter and Brad McHugh of White Dog Development Group, took their own chance and transformed the building's interior into a viable mixed-use space. Boasting main floor offices, and upper floor apartments, the adaptive reuse space was well suited for Sanderson Stewart's needs.

"When we opened our branch office in Williston, it was an exciting and challenging place to work," said Rick Leuthold, Chairman of Sanderson Stewart. "We needed quality office space and housing for our staff, and the unique combination of commercial and residential space that White Dog provided us with their renovation was the perfect solution. Being centrally located downtown is great and the space works well for our day–to–day operations."

With forty-five years of experience planning and designing enduring communities, Sanderson Stewart recognizes the commitment and vision necessary to create a sustainable community. "We see the downtown revitalization as a very important step for Williston and one that we want to be a part of," says Mr. Leuthold. "The thriving cities of America all have a vital downtown district that functions both as a gathering place as well as a commerce hub. Williston is creating that center and we are excited to be in the heart of it."

The adaptive reuse project kick-started White Dog's revitalization business within Williston's famed Bakken Region, as well as a partnership with the City's Economic Development and Planning offices. As a co-pioneering force, White Dog focuses on building communities through land development and construction.

"Our commitment to Williston runs deep," says White Dog Vice President, Brad McHugh. "We love this town. It is home. And like anything you love, it is a work in progress. Partnering with the city is key to preventing the death of the Downtown Corridor. Our vision coming out here was to embrace an existing space that desperately needed revitalization. Now that we've set the stage, with 214 Main, we hope the momentum will continue with other businesses and individuals."

Williston's Economic Development Office is working with companies like Sanderson Stewart and White Dog Development to elevate Williston. "As history has shown in similar boomtown scenarios, everything progresses in succession," says Shawn Wenko, Williston's Economic Development Deputy Director. "We're now shifting from a boom model to a business model, and focusing on the components needed to build a vibrant and sustainable community. We're excited to have Sanderson Stewart and White Dog assisting in the growth of our community."

Recently, Sanderson Stewart's office unveiled a new exterior facade at their downtown Williston location. The modern design speaks to their updated interior work and pairs perfectly with their company's mission.

"I feel our new façade has really set the tone for downtown," says Kari Andren, Director of Marketing for Sanderson Stewart. "We love the new, upscale, modern style and feel it ties in well with other renovations in the area. I was born and raised in Williston, and it has been painful to watch the downtown area degrade over the years. I've witnessed countless transient companies come in and not make the commitment that our community needed for long-term growth. I am very proud of our firm's investment in the future of Williston – both the downtown revitalization and the new subdivisions. We are creating a sustainable community where people can not only live, but will enjoy and prosper for years to come."

Wenko echoes Andren's hopes for Williston's future with a clear vision, "The goal has always been to come out of this thing a better community than when it first started. We want to be the best little city in America. Entities like White Dog and Sanderson Stewart understand this. The investment they have made shows they are committed to this goal and the future of Williston."

White Dog continues to work with the Downtown Planning Committee and is also pursuing new investment opportunities within the Downtown Business Corridor. From an urban planning perspective, they recognize the need to divert some of the heavy oil operations and traffic away from the core community of Williston in order to aid in the city's growth and revitalization. While creating solutions to those challenges, White Dog continues development of the neighboring Elk Ridge subdivision; an industrial and residential mixed-use community 15 miles south of town.
