“We at Lighthouse for Life are so grateful for Ted’s dedicated and generous work in preparing drawings for our new Drop-in Center here in Columbia! Ted came highly recommended to us, and from the first in-person meeting on our job site until the completion of the drawings, Ted was responsive, thorough and efficient. He quickly captured the vision of what we hope to accomplish through our mission, and he guided us step-by-step along the way. He put together a great team of likeminded engineers who worked alongside us throughout the entire process. We recommend Ted without hesitation and would lean on his expertise anytime!”

“Ted Talmage is a master coordinator – responder. He coordinated the construction team, the interior design team, and CIU’s team with the same magical skill of Pinocchio’s beloved creator Geppetto. The short timeline of our project was considered by some to be impossible, but Ted responded by dancing back and forth between his office and the project scores of times in order to keep us on track. Talmage Architects is a fast moving, nimble group, and we love them!”
