What Clients Say

“We have found PWArchitects to be professional in their business practices, responsive to our special requirements and needs, and enjoyable to work with.”
Fire Chief Charles P. Witt, Jr., Columbia Fire Department
“The design team worked closely with our organization to address every detail in the layout of the building; offering practical solutions while remaining sensitive to our budgetary constraints. The design team was very accessible, responsive and focused on our project needs.”
Steve Etcher, Executive Director, Boonslick Regional Planning Commission
“We were extremely pleased with the results of the entire building process with PWA. From the initial design meetings, meeting with the community to promote the bond issue, to the final move in of the facility – PWA was there every step of the way.”
Joe Miller, Senior Vice President, Commerce Bank
“I have noticed over the years that PWA has not only continued a high level of business knowhow, but has developed further knowledge of the housing industry rules and regulations in order to meet all the requirements needed and to help take the burden off the local agency.”
Jack McCord, Hannibal Housing Authority
“Being good stewards of available resources is an important value for our organization. PWA certainly helped us incorporate environmental values into our building design.”
Reuben Wilbur, former Treasurer and Director of Administrative Services, Missouri Conference of the United Methodist Church
“The building has been well received by our staff, and customers and its success has allowed our company to expand our service to mid-Missouri customers with two additional branches in Jefferson City. The consistent visual aesthetic of each branch facility combined with our commitment to environmentally conscious development (and a branding campaign) has strengthened our image and position in the community.”
Hal James, Missouri Credit Union
“PWA designed a building project for us that will serve our organization well for many years. I would use PWA on future projects that we undertake and would recommend them for other entities needing facility improvements.”
