42.5388% of My Life or The Last 25 Years
On 28 June 2014, TEG Architects will celebrate its 25 Year Anniversary. On that date, that will represent over 42% of my life that I’ve been part of this creative, innovative and incredibly talented firm.
The people that comprise TEG Architects are the most talented I’ve ever worked with; they are dedicated to Service, Quality and Creativity. They help every client in creating their worlds; they help each other in helping our clients. The only thing that has changed over these 25 fantastic years is that, our creative solutions keep getting better.
In the past 25 years, our firm has been the springboard for many of our clients. Some relatively minor health systems have grown to be regional providers of highly sophisticated life-saving care.
Communities we have served as planners and architects have used our innovative and dynamic facilities for education, wellness and athletics to revitalize downtown business districts, to serve thousands of citizens striving for healthy lives and to educate our future leaders.
Countries have used our health planning guidelines to shape the delivery of health care in former Soviet nations and in Central America.
Countless lives have entered this world in the innovative hospitals we have planned and designed.
Countless families have spent their last moments with loved ones in facilities that our team has created.
Thousands of babies have survived and grown to be adults from neonatal intensive care units we have designed.
TEG has helped train hundreds of professional staff members; some have moved on to form their own firms, others are literally all over the world planning, designing and creating the built environment.
TEG has employed over 120 interns in our 25 years. These young people have helped us forget we are getting older, while learning how to be lifelong learners of a wonderful profession.
The last 25 years or 42.5388% of my life has been so incredibly exciting and full of every emotion possible. The one thought that remains is, we have so much more to do; the next 25 years will be incredible.
Thanks to all of our clients, staff, their families and our friends around the world who have made the first 25 years so memorable.
All My Best Regards.
