" I am pleased to wholeheartedly recommend the architectural services of Volume Zero. . .  As the former Program Manager for a large public property owner in New Orleans, I had the opportunity to personally work with Volume Zero and their Principals over the past six years on various design services tasks . . . Volume Zero was tops among a group of 10 on-call architects during this period. . . Volume Zero was the architect of choice. . . Volume Zero required little guidance and could be entrusted to achieve the desired results with a minimal amount of oversight. . . I would recommend Volume Zero for any architectural design work and would gladly work with them again myself if provided the opportunity.”
