"I have had the pleasure of knowing Eric Risinger since 2004 when he was contracted to provide guidance on a building renovation project for the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

This project was a complete remake of the interior of a two story building that was accomplished in two stages while all employees remained on site. Eric was the consummate professional as he provided comprehensive guidance from the beginning of the project, gathering a detailed understanding of the organization and its plans, through the demolition and construction phase and the final inspection. He has an extremely thorough approach to his work and he delivers quality.

I would not hesitate to use Eric in the future and can enthusiastically recommend him as a highly skilled architect."

“The District & City both lacked funding & community-consensus necessary to pass levies for facility improvement projects. For several years, both struggled with limited funding options available.

 From strategic planning through design, funding and project execution, R+A enabled Wadsworth City Schools to realize our vision and provide more for the community. The ability and resources of R+A to identify and secure collaboration partners and funding was critical for the project to earn community support and move forward.”

“This facility has greatly enhanced social opportunities for our senior citizens and allows for additional programming, recreation and physical fitness services. Wadsworth is a very health-conscious community. This facility provides tremendous opportunities for our community to enjoy expanded recreation and physical fitness services.”

“Our project’s success with R+A was rooted in their ability to collaborate and deliver the integrated process of strategic planning with the community collaboration partnerships.

R+A listens to our partners and then immediately translates their program requirements into a design on paper. Their open and transparent process was valued by all partners and key for the success of the integrated program.

If and when there was an issue, their team clearly and simply laid out the issues for us and always presented solutions. This started in the strategic planning and programming phase, including the collaboration development, and ended in the project close out phase.

R+A is not a boiler plate firm and their critical thinking and care for our needs was demonstrated by challenging the state and local regulations to meet our needs. We appreciated their advocacy and critical intelligent thinking on our behalf.”
