Since founding Onsite Design, owner and CEO Mike Hogstrom has set a standard for quality. "I'm a guy that works over 100
hours a week," he says. "I try my best to lead by example."
Part of that example includes being accessible to clients and
project partners. If they call, "There's always someone to pick up
the phone and get back to them within 24 hours," Hogstrom says.
"[That policy has] strengthened a lot of relationships."
Onsite Design specializes in designing and developing residential projects in Louisiana and across state lines. Hogstrom, who has
nearly 18 years of experience, started the company three years
ago. "I left my nine-to-five job and bought a piece of land to develop out of my house," he recalls. "I was going take a couple years out
of the rat race and see how things went for me in Baton Rouge."
Hogstrom rezoned the 1.4-acre property for the construction
of eight single-family homes. "I caught the eye of several builders,
developers and investors, not just in Baton Rouge, but also across
the region," he recalls.
