“I’ve worked with Nea and Mike Poole for over 20 years on new apartment development projects in the Southeast. They are more than dedicated qualified architects. Their passion for creative design, innovative ideas and finding different ways to make things work is extraordinary. Nea and Mike truly care about their client’s success and stay actively involve in every 2PA design project. A much appreciated rarity in today’s world!"
I’ve known and worked with 2PA, and their principals, for over 20 years, and I’ve had nothing but great experiences with them. They are very responsive, creative, detail driven, open minded and cost effective. The best of all necessary characteristics for an architect in today’s time. I highly recommend Mike and Nea and their entire team for any development project, anywhere. Mike is a master of planning, details and building requirements, while Nea is a design expert. Together we’ve built many beautiful projects that have enhanced the communities that we work in, and have created great value for us and for our investor partners. We plan to continue to work w/2PA as our lead architect for as long as we keep building and developing wonderful housing communities. Cudos to the entire team!
"Fortune-Johnson is always excited when we hear from our clients that Poole and Poole will be the architect on an upcoming project. We know that we will be building from a good set of plans. If questions arise they will be answered quickly. Best of all, working with Mike and Nea May always results in an enjoyable experience."
