Client Testimonials




“Tom has a professional manner and responds promptly to issues.”

“I have worked with Tom Genis on a 40,000 square foot, four-story building located in Washington, DC. Tom is very professional and a pleasure to work with. He was the only consultant who did not have to be reminded of the due dates and deliverables. I can’t say how this fact alone can calm an architect’s nerves while trying to meet deadlines. Besides, Tom is also very experienced in the field of architecture.”


Mr. Ramon I. Santos

“Tom Genis’ ability to deliver results on time makes it easy for me to highly recommend Genis Design to any developer or design team requiring the expertise of an experienced architect to assist in the multi-faceted requirements of redeveloping historic buildings.”

“I took the opportunity to mention to Tom Genis the disappointment my office was having trying to find an architect to arrange for a small, indoor elevator in our building. Several took a look at the area and said what we wanted was not possible on the interior. We engaged Tom, and now have a completed, five-stop elevator which draws the praise of everyone who views and rides in it. I highly recommend Genis Design, and we are willing to show the elevator to anyone interested.”
