Architectural Testimonials for KA Architecture

“KA has been an integral part of our team approach in creating good design, often meeting difficult time schedules and working with us to bring the costs in line with our budgets in order to make our pro forma work. This attribute is not typical of most architectural firms. You and your firm go above and beyond the call of duty in examining every aspect of each project to meet the quality, cost and schedule.

The success we’ve had working together on all of our various projects ensures that we will continue our long term relationship with KA well into the future. Your willingness to work with me and my staff in providing creative ideas in an open forum is rewarding, and egos do not create obstacles where often it does with other creative firms like yours.”

– Herbert Glimcher, President of Glimcher Company

“The strong relationship that has evolved between EMJ and KA is due in large part to KA’s ability to perform at a level above their competition, providing comprehensive designs and superior construction documents along with a positive, professional attitude. Their level of service during construction has minimized change orders and eliminated potential delays due to their quick response to questions from our field staff and thoroughness in documentation.”

– Ron Jobe, Executive Vice President of EMJ Corporation

“Our experience has been consistent year over year and has encompassed a wide range of project types and scope to include small remodels, prototype development, new suburban stores and flagships alike. KA’s expertise in shopping centers whether it is on the department store or developer side of the fence is outstanding. Their countless years of experience and know-how bring a productive balance to the development team. Their top priority is always protecting their clients’ interests.”

– Bernard A. Reiss, Senior Vice President of Macy’s

The principals of the firm are deeply committed to achieving the client’s objectives in every project and we have found their personal commitment and involvement to be almost unique in the business.”

Furthermore, you have incorporated the contractor into those discussions seeking everyone’s input for maximum effectiveness & efficiency.
