Washington University in St. Louis
“I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the success that we had with the renovation of the Lopata Gallery. It is through the assistance of M2 Architecture Studio that we were able to convert a dark, lifeless space into a vibrant location that attracts people from the entire campus.
I was impressed by M2‘s ability to meet the project requirements, even with a complete program change at the end of the construction document phase. Your staff worked diligently with the University and consultants to provide a design that transformed this space while still making it possible to meet the project completion date.
Throughout construction, the strong effort of your team was evident. Consistent attendance at the weekly progress meetings drove dialogue with the contractor that provided prompt responses to requests for information. In addition, your team was available at a moment’s notice to respond to design questions.
There is no doubt in my mind that M2 played a key role in the success of this project and I look forward to an opportunity to work with M2 again.
Thanks for a job well done.”

The team at M2 worked tirelessly for months to evaluate the situation, document the concerns and develop several strategies to rebuild.

Great Job M2!”

“Over the past thirty years I have developed a variety of Shopping Centers each containing different challenges. I hired M2 Architecture Studio for multiple building projects and found Mark Gettemeyer and the company to be excellent architects. He is prompt in responding to my questions and has helped me find solutions to construction and design issues in the most economical and functional ways. Still accommodating specific needs, his suggestions are most cost effective and his knowledge of the field is beyond expectation.
M2 Architecture Studio will take on any size task with professionalism and strong organization skills that results in a quality of work that has lead each project to a successful outcome. I look forward to continuing our relationship for years to come.”

Dave Sinclair Ford Incorporated
“We hired M2 Architecture Studio to design our future building expansion and renovation. They provided numerous alternative designs for our review, ranging from a full demolition and rebuild to optional building additions in all of our departments to meet our needs. The team of electrical, structural, mechanical, civil, and legal associates they assembled for our project provided very professional results. Their analysis considered all factors which could affect not only the project design and cost effectiveness, but its impact on our ongoing business during construction.
Their managing partner, Max Nall, and project manager, Mike Bauer, kept the team focused on how the designs both met our operating needs and the cost effectiveness of the project. They made sure they understood the key processes required to be executed in the departments, and adjusted the designs to meet operating priorities. Additionally, they asked probing questions of us on how we could potentially alter both the building and the operating process for superior results.
In summary, M2 Architecture Studio provided excellent work on our project and we would not hesitate to use them again on other projects.”
