Summer Wrap-Up

August 21st, 2023

As summer winds down and school begins, our projects remain in full swing! Our summer has been full with the great outdoors – site visits, staff socials, volunteering, interning, and the excitement of new and progressing projects!

If you see us out and about, give us a shout out, we’d love to chat! Whether it’s about our firm or a project you’ve been thinking about… we’d love to hear about it!

Check out some summer photos of us around North Iowa :)

Welcome Abby!

June 8th, 2023

It’s summer, and you know what that means… we welcome our new intern Abby Klostermann!

Abby is an Architecture student at ISU and is excited to work with our team of designers and our clients to bring their architectural spaces to life! Abby grew up working on her family dairy farm, was involved in 4-H and created many projects to take to the Iowa State Fair, which steered her love for design.

Abby brings passion and diligence for problem-solving projects, sustainable design, and being a team player. If Abby had a super power it would be flying – to explore new places faster and more easily! We are excited to have Abby with us for the summer!

Summer Blooms

May 18th, 2023

Sarah and Sonia helped plant flowers this week at Central Gardens in Clear Lake, IA.
Bergland + Cram believes in supporting local businesses in our community in many different ways, including volunteering. If you’re looking for something to do this summer stop by the gardens! See if you can find the butterfly we helped plant!


Also check out the Nature Education Pavilion which was designed by Bergland + Cram!

Central Gardens provide a beautiful and welcoming place to celebrate the wonders of nature, escape for some quiet time, and enjoy the outdoors. You can explore winding brick pathways and walk over unique bridges while you see more than 22,000 flowers, butterflies, bees and much more.

Runway Fashion Design for a Cause!

May 1st, 2023

Bergland + Cram is participating in the “Hammers & Heels” fashion show again this year! If you saw us last year we went all out – from our team design to the runway we loved the experience and support of our community! So we’re doing it again this year and going bigger, better, wow-ier?

If you don’t know, this is a construction fashion show fundraiser, so we design a runway style made out of construction materials. This event supports Habitat for Humanity of North Central Iowa, and we LOVE being a part of this! This gives us an opportunity to design in a different way, and support a local cause while doing it!

Sounds cool right? If you’re interested, we’d love for you to support our team by donating, or join us at the event! We’ll be there cheering on the designers and having a fun time! Here is a sneak peak at part of our design…
