“RMTA was hired to design DSI's new downtown corporate headquarters. RMTA's ability to take charge, lead, and work with multiple project vendors and contractors made the process smooth and enjoyable. On more than one occasion, I have been told we have as nice a space of not only anyone in Kansas City, but as they have ever seen. This is due in large part to RMTA's efforts. It was a pleasure working with RMTA and I would absolutely recommend them.”
— Matt McGraw, President & CEO
"I’m certain that the crew at RMTA often hears the phrase, “We really want our space to be unique and cool” at the beginning of most client interactions. From the outset of our relationship, I was impressed that RMTA’s culture includes a very healthy dose of listening. They didn’t try to sell why they were the best choice, rather they asked about our vision and responded with their approach of how they’d tackle it. Straightforward. As it should be.
Describing RMTA as just a talented design firm is simply incomplete. An advisor, at times a much needed reality check, and most significantly a trusted friend begins to provide a better picture. They treated us like we were their only client (and at times we must have felt like we were taking all their time!). I give my highest recommendation of Matt, Erin, Janelle, Tyler, and the rest of the team at RMTA."

“RMTA has provided strong design and project leadership from the start for our new Outpatient Health Center in Overland Park. They have been an engaging and extremely strong project team member where they have helped formalize our vision by creating an approachable well-designed facility for our new health lifestyle project. The project site location and program have been challenging but RMTA has made the project successful from a design standpoint. They have helped create an enjoyable journey for our project team from programming to our current construction phase.”
— Robin Rollins Harrold, Vice President Ambulatory Development
“I have worked with RMTA for [more than] 17 years on tenant finish, land planning and building projects. What sets their firm apart from other architects is a commitment to make sure that everything has been worked out to our satisfaction. They truly understand the concept of customer service.”

“RMTA was involved from the first day to the last day carefully guiding the entire owner and construction team (including its vendors) through preplanning, design, construction and close out procedures. It is so refreshing to be involved with this high energy architectural firm that wanted to be part of a "Team" and demonstrated it by their tireless resolve day in and day out. The design was superb, the working drawings exact, and the leadership displayed by RMTA is unmatched in my 32 years in the business.”

President, Wolverine Building Group
"We hired RMTA in late 2012 to help us with our corporate relocation project. Little did any of us understand the size and complexity of our project especially in light of new construction. Thank goodness for RMTA. Our project manager and lead interior architect led us to a successful completion of our target occupancy of September 2013 that was well within budget. This was also accomplished without compromising style or practicality. We appreciate their thoroughness, technical knowledge, and customer service culture."
— Frank J. LaRosa, SVP, Chief Administrative Officer
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Matt and his team on a couple of different projects. These guys are simply excellent. They know their stuff, and they bring creativity and solid execution to everything they do. Beyond that, Matt (and his team) is one of those people you can’t help but like! We were friends by the end of the first project and I’d hire Matt again in an instant. Best in class!”

"I am happy to confirm that your team at Rees Masilionis did an outstanding job in guiding our selection of a contractor, and designing, furnishing and managing our build-out at 1201 Walnut. I can certainly recommend your firm to anyone undertaking a build-out."
— Phillip G. Greenfield, German May PC
"Having heard good things about RMTA, we had very high expectations when we hired them to lead our corporate office relocation. It did not take long to recognize we had made the right choice, particularly once we transitioned from a simple office-to-office move to a full purchase and remodel with construction. We needed a solid plan to completely redesign an existing two-story footprint, with the challenges of meeting a very tight timeline within a strict budget. Matt and his team were invaluable in parsing between the “needs” and the “wants” for our office design, while being cognizant of our desire to have a fresh, yet timeless style. Throughout the process, our RMTA team was readily available for questions, responsive to requests and generous with ideas and suggestions. RMTA exceeded our high expectations through their commitment to a team approach, ability to work with various vendors, technical expertise and desire to please."

“... We wanted a new space that would help position Sprint as an innovative technology leader. ... From the very beginning of the project [RMTA] put themselves
in the position of our guests. ... They understood the journey and need to create a space that was both highly functional and memorable. The result was stunning. Guests from around the world often comment that the Rotunda is the coolest space they have ever been in. ... AV Magazine who featured the Sprint Rotunda as one of eight case studies in their 2017 annual “Amazing Spaces” issue. We were so impressed with their process and the end result that we have engaged them to build a new technology showcase adjacent to the Rotunda.”
