What our clients are saying

“…. you will enjoy your working relationship with TAG. He is a talented individual but also appreciates talent in others, not letting ego get in the way of the project. This is a great gift and has brought nice results in the relationships we have had with TAG and his involvement with other design disciplines and specialists.“ He is an architect by trade but the scope of his contribution goes well beyond architecture. I find TAG most effective when I have had him lead the design team, directing the architect, interior designer, landscape designer, etc. The man simply works magic. He can work within budgets and produce results that have a sensitivity, a continuity, yet, make people say ‘WOW’.”

“We’ve just completed a 92,000 square foot facility, which includes a golf and tennis clubhouse, function rooms, restaurant, bar, grill, lockers, fitness center, indoor pool and a full service spa. The most flattering guest comment I have had is that many guests think the building was always here. Without TAG’s involvement it would have been a fine facility. With TAG’s involvement it became spectacular. He gives you bang for the buck.”

La Quinta Resort

“Viewing the spa, it’s hard to believe that it wasn’t built with the original casita-style property.This is thanks to designer TAG Galyean. We chose TAG Galyean because we wanted to make sure we hired a designer who knows what works and what doesn’t. We we’re thrilled that TAG brought so much resort spa design experience to the table.”

“under your leadership each phase of the master plan process at Kingsmill has been met with tremendous insight and knowledge; from the beginning stages through the completion of the ballroom, spa, sports facility, and now the golf clubhouse. … the product delivered was a careful balance between design, quality, and overall expenditures. Your background led us to the development and construction of a world-class facility within a realistic budget. You pressed the organization at the right time to make the right design decisions and the expenditures that would make the difference in the long run. We have all grown with a deeper appreciation of architectural excellence in design and a professionalism that is unmatched.

To capture Mr. Busch’s attention in such a dramatic way is a feat unparalleled by many.”

The Aspen Club

“Now that the Aspen Club is completed, you deserve a hearty congratulations on a job exceedingly well done. I still find it astounding that we first met less than a year and a half ago, and within that time have taken a project as large and as complicated as the Aspen Club from start to finish, on time and on budget. It truly has been and I hope will continue to be, a pleasure working with you.

You deserve thanks on a number of fronts. Most of all, I want to thank you for all the times you told me to “trust you” and then proceeded to reward that trust with brilliantly creative solutions to the challenges of the Aspen Club. I also want to thank you for the times you convinced me to let you “make it beautiful” and then proceeded to do just that. In summary, you have done a masterful job here at the Aspen Club and you should be proud of how much you advanced the cause of this project and the Company.”
