About GLAS Architects, LLC

GLAS Architects, LLC, represents the combined resources of two prominent firms who joined forces in 1992, TMA Architectural Group and Martin, Schultz and Geyer.  The origins of these two firms date to 1967 and 1946, respectively.  The firm is a Limited Liability Company led by Principals Trace A. Ward, Jesse R. Grant and Christopher L. Walkup.  James M. Lewis and Wally R. Gresl are Senior Associates in the firm. 

We are a full-service firm and have the necessary capabilities to master plan multi-million-dollar facility complexes, as well as enthusiastically assist in maintaining and renovating our clients’ existing facilities.  Our long history of involvement in these activities allows us to become actively involved in budgetary planning and the formulation of long-range facility objectives.

Our work involves renovations and additions to existing buildings, as well as new facilities from the ground up. Both project types have their own unique challenges and rewards, giving us the opportunity to either design around existing conditions or to forge ahead with a new design that best responds to our clients’ current and future needs.

We have a reputation as careful listeners and resourceful designers who work diligently to maximize the impact of limited project funds.  Most of our work is performed for repeat-work clientele. We find that the most successful marketing approach is to simply sustain long term relationships through consistently meeting or exceeding expectations. The members of our firm are highly committed to maintaining these long-term relationships and providing the highest level of personalized service.
