About CSO


Providing World Class Service

Since our inception in 1961, CSO has been committed to truly partnering with our valued clients. We do so with an intense commitment to our Core Purpose:

“To provide design and service excellence for the benefit of our clients, our people, our community, and our environment.”

Located in Indianapolis, Indiana, CSO is one of the state’s largest and most reputable design firms. While our portfolio is very diverse, we are specifically focused on the following market sectors: workplace; healthcare; manufacturing; logistics; K-12 education; and higher education.

We are keenly aware that our people and our workplace are the cornerstone of our firm. As such, we align ourselves with those who share our values, resulting in a positive, exciting, energetic and liberating workplace. It is a collaborative environment where sharing and implementing creative ideas take place every day. In our daily interactions with clients, and with one another, we have the opportunity to create memories in people’s lives. Our team members take this to heart and approach each project with the goal of making it a successful, fun and rewarding experience for everyone involved.

CSO offers a diverse range of programming, planning, architectural and interior design services. In addition, we work with a variety of consultants to provide the highest quality and most suitable professional services. We have been extremely proactive in partnering with Minority Business Enterprise (MBE), Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) and Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) organizations. Partnering with our consultants not only enhances our total design approach, but also enables us to contribute to the greater diversity of our project team.
