“Beyond his design prowess, Indy is known for developing and managing relationships, as well as empowering others,” says Hall, who will continue at ALSC in a principal role. “As president and CEO, he will work tirelessly to showcase and mentor the exceptional design talent within the firm and push our team to think creatively and strategically alongside our clients. ALSC Architects is well-positioned for growth under Dehal’s leadership.”
Indy's lifelong commitment to serving others through his leadership has been an unshakable part of his character. Over two decades ago, Indy took the initiative to lead high school youth on Sundays and mission trips to various destinations, such as Mexico, West Africa, Belize, and even dedicating his efforts to aid hurricane relief in New Orleans after Katrina. Today, Indy's passion for service manifests itself through his involvement in various organizations. At Life Center Church, he dedicatedly mentors young couples to prepare them for the journey of marriage. Indy actively serves on the boards of esteemed organizations such as the Spokane County Library Foundation, WSU Spokane Advisory Council, WSU School of Architecture Capstone Mentor. As a proud member of the local chapter of C12, Indy fervently shares and cultivates his faith, constantly striving to expand his spiritual horizons.
With 23 years of experience in design and architecture, Indy has worked on projects ranging from ground-up new construction to historic renovations and adaptive reuse of existing buildings. He is a registered architect in Washington, Idaho, and Montana. His approach to design is a collaborative one, as he believes that effective design must be rooted in a deep understanding of the client’s mission and values.
As CEO, Dehal will continue focusing on design excellence, executing the firm’s mission of bringing our clients’ stories to life, while continuing to grow the firm’s vision of designing innovative architecture and giving back to our community. Dehal has a deep understanding of the firm’s values, client relationships, and the importance of staying at the forefront of design trends and technological advancements.
“As ALSC’s new CEO, I look forward to working with our clients, colleagues, and industry partners to develop new solutions to emerging challenges,” says Dehal.
