"From the first moment Smith+Associates Architects understood the scope of the project and listened attentively when we described what we wanted to accomplish... they were engaged, motivated and organized. They took, what were, at the time, random thoughts, and began to make them a reality." - Robin E. Flint, Director, Cardiac Services, Kaleida Health
