-A A +A

Encompass Develop, Design & Construct is continuing to grow by adding more design experience to its team. The architectural team of Scott/Klausing & Company, Inc. (SKC) will join Encompass effective July 1. Encompass and SKC are both based in La Grange.

SKC has been providing planning and architectural services to businesses in Kentucky, seven other states and three other countries, since 1986. The new team members, Stan Klausing, Joshua Gedney, Doug Sturgeon and Becky Kennedy have a combined 120 years of design experience, allowing Encompass to provide expanded and enhanced design services to current and future partners. The addition is another example of Encompass responding to the needs of its clients.

“Encompass is a true partner in the building process -- from conception to completion, we deliver a complete experience for our clients,” said John Stewart, Encompass President and CEO. “The addition of SKC’s Associates adds to that experience and strengthens our field of expertise.”

Encompass has expanded to meet the growing demand for its services, especially in the entertainment, gaming and hospitality industries. Encompass most recently completed $26.5 million in improvements at Churchill Downs Race Track in Louisville, overseeing the construction of more than 80,000 square feet of expanded seating, added amenities and improved outdoor spaces and the addition of the world’s largest 4K resolution outdoor video board. Encompass also provides design and construction of distillery and related facilities for companies like Brown-Forman and recently completed the new Jack Daniel Cooperage in Alabama.

Encompass will continue to work with SKC’s clients to provide the quality services they’ve come to expect. The addition of the SKC design team will allow Encompass to broaden its offering of full service architectural and design services across the United States and other countries.

Encompass serves as the owner’s representative on major construction projects for leading companies in the gaming, hospitality, entertainment and retail fields. Encompass provides expert guidance, management and oversight as a strategic partner in the design, build and construct turnkey process.
