“I have always held David in the highest regard and consider him to be the best designer I have ever worked with. I can think of no finer step than working with David on another project.”

Convergence Design is a highly creative, a ‘think-outside-the-box’ organization that I believe will continue to grow and impact the architectural industry, as well as the community.

Phillip Ransford, Director of Operations
CenturyLink Center - SMG
“The Convocation Center has been designed to serve the student body and the community - at least, that was the stated goal. We think it's been achieved. We think this building is remarkable.”
The Narragnsett Times

"The Enid Event Center has been an overwhelming, towering accomplishment for our community."
Eric Benson, City Manager
City of Enid, Oklahoma
“There is truly not a bad seat in the house. I saw from all four levels, infield and outfield and the sight lines are just phenomenal. Everyone said it felt like you were closer to the field. Fans in the upper decks were impressed with their view and like how the incline wasn't nearly as steep in the old Busch.”
Jonathan Knisley
Deadspin
“Every night when I walk through the crowd I find that people are very encouraged. They love the ballpark and the ambience of coming to the ballpark. That’s the exciting part of it.”
Drayton McLane, Former Owner, Houston Astros
“The large glass wall extends from left field into center field allows natural light to pour in an making it feel more like and outdoor park than it otherwise would. The park is tucked nicely into a downtown setting. Despite the large upper decks, Minute Maid still has a rather intimate feel to it–more so than other ‘cozy’ parks like Camden Yards and Jacobs Field. An impressive new facility that should serve as a model for any city needing to build a park with a retractable roof.”

“When people come in and they see the Grand River Center, it’s “Wow!” It connects with the river. It’s the right size. It can be small meetings, large meetings. It fits a variety of needs. It hits that “wow” factor."
Sue Czeshinki, Director
Dubuque Convention & Visitors' Bureau
“After six months of operation, we continue to receive wonderful praise for the beautiful creative design that so appropriately reflects the ideas that the City Council envisioned for this area. It is particularly satisfying to receive this praise from citizens and visitors who have visited the building on more than one occasion and are awed each time they step through the doors.”
Cindy Steinhauser, Assistant City Manager
City of Dubuque
“Peoria Civic Center is a facility that must be very flexible to attract a wide range of events from conventions, meetings and community events of all kinds. Thanks to your expertise, we now are much more able to meet these challenges.”
Debbie Ritschel, former General Manager
Peoria Civic Center
“It’s a great building—a real home run. It’s perfect for Provo.”
Danny Wheeler, General Manager
Utah Valley Convention Center
“It’s going to be awesome. It’s great for the community, and will give the whole area the oomph that it really needs.”
Brent Newbry, Director of Sales
Provo Marriott Hotel
“With classic arched openings recalling the nearby Cupples Station warehouses to the rich warm colors of the Wainwright building, this ballpark is inspired by the classics. However, its creative use of old and new materials, from brick and concrete to exposed steel and glass, creates an architectural statement that stands on its own, with a modern sensibility appropriate for the 21st century.”
