Corey Dehn, AIA, Leed AP

Year Joined: 2015

Professional Registration:



Kansas State University, Bachelor of Architecture

Corey was always confident he would be an architect and never questioned the path forward. He grew up on jobsites through his father’s business, and now enjoys revisiting the buildings he has designed to watch how people move through them as he imagined.

In his years as an architect, Corey has learned that beauty in Architecture can be found in the details of a building, whether it’s a high-end residence or a parking structure.

Corey joined SDG in 2015 as a Senior Project Manager. Throughout his career he has been involved in a wide variety of projects, from churches to correctional facilities, office buildings to golf course clubhouses, and numerous University and K-12 educational facilities throughout Kansas. Nearly half the students who graduate in Shawnee County will have used a facility designed by Corey!

Corey enjoys a multitude of outdoor activities including: hunting, kayaking, camping and motorcycling, but much of his time is spare time is spent boating with his family at Lake Perry.

Favorite SDG Project:

​The Federal Home Loan Bank Corporate Headquarters is my favorite project at SDG so far. Its iconic location on Menninger Hill gives it some of the best views from a building in the City as well as symbolizes Topeka’s bright future.

Words to Live By:

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourself. – Philippians 2:3

“Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently.” Henry Ford

Something enjoyable in his past he’d do again:

My wife and I spent the first 7 months of marriage traveling New England while working at internships.  We were poor students so we had to camp everywhere, it was great!

Someone he admires:

Dwight Eisenhower. He grew up a small-town Kansas kid and through hard work, patience and integrity he became the most powerful man in the world.

Something surprising about him:  

I first “dated” my wife of over 20 years in junior high.
