Leah Beckham, MGC Law

I would highly recommend A.L.R. Architecture to a company looking to partner with an architectural firm for any building project. They will certainly be at the top of our list for future projects.Le

Joseph Ku, Innovative Fibers, LLC

Innovative Fibers, LLC has hired ALR Architects on our most recent additional/renovation projects for our facilities located in Spartanburg, SC, in which ended summer of 2008. We have added a 3-story, 38,000 square foot building to our existing building. ALR Architects performed with complete satisfaction on our complets of $3.6 million addition/renovation project. Min Lee, AIA, who headed the architectural design, was promptly responsive to to the changes that the project requires during a design. ALR Architect was dedicated highly on the project's needs and excellent communication during the construction phase.

W. Stephen Burt, UNC Charlotte - Facilities Management

I had the opportunity in 2011 to work with Bill Ashlin and ALR Architecture on the Kennedy Building Renovation project here at UNCC. They were quite professional and it was mainly due to their proactive attitude and attention to detail that the project was such a success. The Contractor was new and inexperienced and added attention was required to keep the project moving forward and the quality consistent.

The project was finished on time and within budget thanks to the added attention provided by ALR Architects. I would highly recommend them for any project you have at UNCC that their services might be needed.

Gene Miller, Rowan Salisbury Schools

I recommend ALR Architecture for any school renovations and /or new building projects. They are very accomplished Architects and good at the services they provide.

I highly recommend giving them every consideration for your educational facility projects...

H. George Kurani, MGC Law

We have engaged the services of Bill Ashlin of ALR Architecture on several of our office expansion projects in the past few years. We are proud to be repeat clients and find their Architectural and Quality Assurance Services to be reliable, responsive and professional.

We would offer our highest recommendation for their services.

Gene Browning, R.A., Sr. Facilities Architect Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools

LR Architecture has over 15 years’ experience working with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools in the design and implementation of numerous school related construction projects, both large and small. Throughout those years, ALR has demonstrated exemplary professionalism, design excellence, technical expertise, and attention to detail.

Min Lee and Bill Ashlin have both remained directly involved in each of the projects they have led for CMS, providing the Principal leadership that is the foundation of their design process. We have been pleased with their approach to planning and exploration of design alternatives, providing concepts that address the specific needs of each project, and delivered with attention to the unique constraints of school district budgeting and schedule. They are familiar with all aspects of educational facility projects, starting from schematic design, working through design, permitting, bidding and construction administration, and leading to successful closeouts of each project.
