Here are some of the things our clients have to say about Mekus Tanager!
"My experience with Mekus Tanager has been consistently excellent. The
principals stay involved from the beginning to the end. Whatever is needed,
they make happen in a timely and quality way. The reality is that talent and
experience isn't enough these days. A firm has to be creative, problem solving,
consistent, dependable, and committed. I recommend Mekus Tanager because
I know that they will always live up to these high standards and they 'get it'!"
"Mekus Tanager's quality of work, communication, and responsiveness 'set a
bar' for other architectural firms to achieve."
"Mekus Tanager's design team were delightful to work with because of their
professionalism, responsiveness, insight, and appreciation of the client's needs
and desires. The results have been enormously satisfying both at the time and
on an ongoing basis."
"The Mekus Tanager team is easy to work with. They are good listeners, flexible,
and helpful in conceptualizing and helping define the project goals and solutions
based upon the realities of the client requirements and budget."
"As the client often has an appetite for more design than the budget will
accommodate, Mekus Tanager responds nimbly and can 'dial it up or dial it
down' to find a successful solution that is appropriate and works."
"The Mekus Tanager team has been very responsive and attentive to our needs.
Working with Mekus Tanager has been great overall. I've been hearing a lot of
compliments from the end-users about the new space."
"We have an amazing new design that will save us $2.5 Million in facilities costs
"We have high expectations of our design teams and leaders. As we stated
during our very first meeting, our goal is to hire the best A/E teams and leaders
possible. We think that the outcome at Rock Island National Cemetery is proof
that we did."
"The project was planned, designed, and constructed on schedule and within
budget, and the program objectives and scope have been well met. This
success is in large part due to the excellent work and high level of service
provided by your team."
"The workplace is beautifully constructed and is a model for how other campuses
should be as well...I thought the furniture and the look of the 8th floor Chicago
office was GREAT! It completely reflects the spirit of this company, and EVERY
facility should be upgraded to this newer look and feel!"
"What has been accomplished is impressive. The addition is a remarkably
successful interpretation of context, which does much to unify the facility,
existing and new, and to embed it quite firmly in its immediate neighborhood
...Our committee and entire Board of Governors have intense pride [in the
project]. It really works, it's rigorously functional."
"I have high expectations for Mekus Tanager and they consistently meet or
exceed them. The creative design options they provide take our requirements
into account and bring them to a higher level than we could accomplish on
"Everyone loves the building. We are finding that employees that work on the
same floor are collaborating more frequently...We showcased the building to
[our] Board a couple of weeks ago. We received very positive feedback from
the Board members."
"I just wanted to commend you and your team on the new building.
It is absolutely beautiful!"
"Our Suite looks beautiful; you really did an outstanding job. And, you and your
staff have been extremely accommodating and supportive...You guys have
made this transition so much easier on us."
"There are two or three people that I have worked with in my career that are
able to really work with the government and understand their issues, needs,
and processes. Roger Hastings is one of those people."
"I have really enjoyed working with Chris [Mekus]. He's upbeat, honest, and a
good communicator. Chris and the team have been easy to work with, flexible,
and adaptable. They not only listen, but they really 'hear' our concerns. The
master plan and schematic design were done very well. The plan makes sense
and there is a good flow of spaces. It's a good, solid beginning."
"Looking back, I think that was the best exhibition in the history of the
Hammerman Gallery, and we received many awards to recognize that. It
had a huge impact on the field, and several art museums across the country
created interactive exhibitions in its wake - it created a trend!...You had all
these wonderful forward thinking ideas that transormed ideas about art into
an accessible language for visitors of all ages."
