We just wanted to extend our appreciation of the fantastic job you and your design team did on the German American Bank Operations Center. The excellent design was very complete with extensive detail which allowed us to progress efficiently without so much lost time and money spent on RFI's and change orders. Your immediate review of submittals and quick response to any questions was spectacular! While this may have been standard operating procedure for Universal Design, we have not found this to be the norm elsewhere
We greatly appreciate your efforts and what working together as a team has accomplished for German American Bank."

"For over 30 years German American Bancorp has relied on Universal Design Associates as its primary architectural and construction design provider. As our relationship has matured and strengthened beyond the initial design phase of our projects, we have come to lean heavily upon UDA as a trusted business partner. They assist our company with designing our new projects, the renovation of current facilities, and the analysis of any structural or mechanical needs we might have. Their forward thinking and progressive design philosophy positions us with modern facilities to meet the ever changing environment of the financial industry... they understand our business needs."

Congratulations."

"It was our pleasure to work with Tom and all his staff. They were very considerate of all our needs and concerns. All the staff went up and beyond to make sure our facility was everything we wanted and more.
Throughout the process we had many changes and desires, some workable and some out of reason. The staff at Universal Design was more than willing to help us find the best workable solution. They always had great suggestions.
We wanted our facility to be as environmentally friendly as possible. This is not always an easy project given the fact we had a very strict budget. Tom even took the time to go to a meeting one evening to get more ideas on how he could best help us.
After working with the Universal Design staff I feel I have gained a group of great friends. I would suggest if you are looking for a design group with compassion and skill you look to Universal Design."
