While our brand is changing to reflect our ever-evolving suite of architectural design services, what isn’t changing at MG Architects is just as important. - Eric Batte, Principal, MG Architects

Houston, TX (PRWEB) September 17, 2013

McCleary German Architects is celebrating its 75th anniversary with a transformation that reflects both pride in its history and a renewed vision for the future: McCleary German Architects is now MG Architects.

In 1938, McCleary German Architects founder Thompson McCleary set a standard for uncompromised excellence in design, a standard that thrived for more than three generations under the direction of Dale McCleary and Bill German. In 1998, the firm welcomed new owners and principals Eric Batte and Scott Clanton who continue the signature approach to excellence.

“While our brand is changing to reflect our ever-evolving suite of architectural design services, what isn’t changing at MG Architects is just as important,” says Mr. Batte. MG Architects continues to provide each of its clients with the expansive resources of a large firm, but also continue to enhance every project with direct, personal attention from project conception to completion.

Utilizing traditional architectural and design principles while incorporating state of the art technology, MG Architects has created innovative, thought-provoking, and highly efficient spaces for more than 1,100 free-standing bank projects, as well as multistory office, corporate interiors, and retail and graphics projects. All reflect MG Architects’ commitment to focused, one-on-one approach to client partnerships—a standard that remains constant, regardless of its name.

“We remain passionately committed to beautiful and sustainable architecture, intelligent and inspired project solutions, and uncommon service excellence,” adds Mr. Clanton. “And like all of our projects, our client relationships are built to last.”

MG Architects has repeatedly demonstrated their flexibility and willingness to listen and respond promptly,” attests Timothy N. Bryan, CEO, The Bank & Trust of Bryan/College Station. “I am confident that MG Architects will demonstrate the same value.... Once you work with them, you'll go back again and again.”

MG Architects is proud to be the sole architecture firm endorsed by The Independent Bankers Association of Texas (IBAT), whose members have long entrusted their design needs to the firm’s enduring vision of excellence. Accordingly, MG Architects’ new identity will be revealed to this esteemed membership at the 39th Annual IBAT Convention, set for September 21 through 24, 2013 in San Antonio, Texas.
