Schutz Foss Architects originated as a branch firm of Foss Associates, a large Midwest Corporation based in Fargo, ND. Allen Rapacz started working for Foss Associates in 1980. In 1981, Allen and Jerry Schutz relocated to Billings, MT to open and operate a branch office. In 1986, Jerry Schutz purchased controlling interest in the branch office and Schutz Foss Architects was established. Mr. Rapacz and Mr. Schutz worked together in the firm until 1997, when Mr. Rapacz became President/Owner of Schutz Foss Architects, P.C.
In 1999, Schutz Foss Architects established a branch office in Gillette, WY, allowing the firm to develop a regional, multi-state, client base that has grown and flourished. Repeat client workload and economic expansion in Eastern Montana and West Central North Dakota allowed Schutz Foss Architects to establish a third office in Dickinson, ND in 2010 during the economic recession and recovery.
