Pete Reinke, Former VP, LVEDC; Treasurer – Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts
Christine, thank you for the RFI follow-up. Your response time has been nothing short of exceptional. When a “seasoned” LVHN Contractor tells me they aren’t used to this quick turn around time on RFI’s and submittal review, that’s a statement. I do appreciate your efforts on this and the revised drawings due to user changes.
Randy Shelly, Project Manager; Lehigh Valley Health Network
I thought the drawings / options were great. Nice work.
Brian Hardner, Vice President of Facilities & Construction; Lehigh Valley Health Network
We are thrilled with this new design.

Terry David Neff, Executive Director; Allentown Jewish Community Center
Your design of the HubCap Café and your uncompromising attention to detail has truly captured the ambiance of a 1950’s ice cream parlor.

Michael G. Waddell, Ed.D., Principal, Alburtis Elementary School; East Penn School District
I especially want to commend you for the work that your firm did to face, with brick and plaster, the exterior walls of the original structures. It was a wonderful job that improved the appearance of the campus immeasurably. I can’t begin to tell you the number of compliments that we have received since the
Robert J. Kopecek, President’s Office; Northampton Community College
We continue to be amazed at the foresight exercised in this project. Not only did Glenn exceed our expectations, he saved us money and hardship with his detailed work. We were able to have the job done right the first time without costly change orders and without a hassle from the township.
Scott J. Davis, Pastor; Slate Belt-Nazareth Baptist Church
From the outside, the Church has become a part of the landscape and fits perfectly with the property. When you enter the Church, you feel warm and welcome... which is exactly what we wanted. W2A helped make our dream a reality and for that we are deeply grateful.
