Long-Term + Trusted Partner

Collaborative. Honest. Talented. Creative.
Impressive. Extraordinary.

These are just a few of the words our valued clients used to describe their experience working with Gray. We are honored to be considered a ‘Trusted Partner’ and ‘The Clear Choice’ for their architecture, interior design and branding needs.

Known by the company we keep, Gray is proud to have received strong recommendations from both Fortune 500 companies and local small businesses alike. Whether it’s a project that spans a few months or several projects over multiple decades, the feedback remains consistent regarding our unwavering determination to exceed client expectations on a myriad of levels.

‘We were at a point in our company’s evolution that our current branding was no longer a true reflection of who we were as a company. Gray took the time to understand our business and future vision. They created a well-defined strategy and visual brand to help us get there. It’s amazing how the brand refresh has re-energized our organization.’

Kurt Schwager

Chief Business Development Officer

‘Our experience with Gray Design Group was incredible. Their ability to understand what we envisioned, bring it into reality, and make it better than we imagined was amazing. We are more than thrilled with what they did for us.’

‘The best part about working with Gray Design Group on our new website design was the collaboration of ideas. They provided a variety of initial options from the beginning, so we had input on the final product, making the process feel like a team effort. They were responsive and provided exceptional client service, creating a positive overall experience.’

‘When the Brinkmann Constructors lobby needed a refresh, the Gray Design Group team was there with its knowledgeable staff to provide expert suggestions and offer solutions that fit our vision. Gray was a top-notch partner throughout the entire project. The Branding + Graphic Design team worked to really understand the Brinkmann brand and provide us with options that reflected our values. Having a partner who took the time to truly get to know us and our needs, as well as guide us through each step of the design and work with other partners through the installation process, made the entire project seamless, especially their attention to detail and follow-through. I would recommend Gray based on their knowledge and expertise – they are professional and work with purpose.’

‘Gray Design Group completed the new Hyatt Place Murfreesboro with a fantastic team in place. Gray thoroughly understands our brand concept and did an excellent job on the drawings. They expertly handled and kept RFI’s to a minimum as well. They were always readily available and responded rapidly to all questions and concerns. I typically don’t get caught up in the recommendation game, but I’ll gladly make an exception for Gray Design Group. I highly recommend we get them included early in projects and as much as we can. They make all of our lives easier.’

Charlie Smith, Vice President of Project Services

Hyatt Place/Hyatt House Americas

‘Faultless Healthcare Linen worked with Gray Design Group on two projects underway at the same time – a new build and a building reconstruction. There were many moving, complicated pieces, and I can absolutely say that Gray hit it out of the park. We appreciated the fact that Gray could design the buildings as well as the finishes, which enabled us to have exceptionally functional spaces that shared a cohesive look. We enjoyed working with everyone on the Gray Design Group team and would work with them again!’

Susan Witcher, President + CEO

Faultless Healthcare Linen

‘Gray Design Group is not only extremely artistic and creative but also focuses on understanding and executing the client’s vision. As our working relationship evolved, Gray assembled a team of professionals comprised of individuals who not only had a high level of expertise, but in addition, shared personal characteristics that were similar to our ownership and management team. This approach developed a warm, friendly relationship, which led to the successful completion of every project. This concept has brought joy, happiness and beauty to each assignment we have worked on with Gray, especially our magnificent corporate headquarters.’

Gabe Grossberg, President

Delmar Gardens Enterprises

‘Gray Design Group was the perfect choice for our new medical venture. From planning to completion, Gray was amazing. Not a day goes by that someone does not ask us about our beautifully designed offices – which is perfect – because beauty IS our business! We love coming to work every day in our lovely, award-winning facility.’

‘We were impressed with Gray from the first meeting. Although their great reputation preceded them, it was their high energy and the confidence they conveyed about getting the job done that convinced us they were the right designer for our new charter bank. Of course, we did our due diligence, which reinforced what we already knew. Now in our fourth expansion phase, we could not be more pleased.’

Andrew Hereford, President + Co-Founder

Parkside Financial Bank + Trust

‘For us, a building needs to function to facilitate our ministry objectives not only on an operational level but also on a creative and even emotional level. Gray really listened and took the time to understand our culture and the environment we were trying to create. The entire process was a true collaborative team effort where there were no egos. The end result from this collaboration was everything we dreamed it would be.’

Art Kuiper, Former Director of Operations

The Crossing Church

‘It has been a pleasure working with the entire Gray team. I recommend Gray Design any chance I get, and I always tell people the same thing. If you want to work with an architectural firm who is creative and who brings lots of good ideas to the table but who can also work with an owner who has strong ideas on certain aspects of the project, Gray is the firm for you. If you are looking for a firm that is straight forward, honest and who you get the feeling that they are always looking out for your best interest, work with Gray. I cannot imagine this project having gone any better, and I attribute a lot of that to choosing Gray. You guys are decidedly different.’

Tom Drazen, Former General Manager

Schattdecor, Inc.

‘We wanted to work with the industry’s best; a firm that could share our vision for the community and draw upon their collective creative experience to produce a stunning final product. Gray Design was everything their reputation promised; they used their talent and expertise to perfectly marry design, function and affordability. At Beyond Housing, we help entire communities grow to be better places to live. Gray Design has become a trusted partner in our community development mission in bringing our vision to life.’
