Firm History

Gateway Medical Center

Gould Turner Group (GTG) was founded in 1980 in Glenwood Springs, Colorado by Mike Gould and Steve Turner.  Mike and Steve envisioned an architectural firm founded on teamwork, exceptional client service, and innovative, quality design. The firm began by designing commercial projects in Colorado, and soon thereafter, entered the field of medical design.  Within a year of its founding, GTG found itself relocating to Nashville where it had acquired as a client the largest for-profit hospital system in the country.

GTG grew in size and in project experience, adding additional healthcare clients, as well as hospitality, educational, and institutional building types to its resume. In 1989, the firm transitioned to Steve Turner and Linda Marzialo to continue GTG’s legacy.  GTG deepened its commitment to the fields of medical and educational design.

In 2005, upon Steve Turner’s retirement, Linda Marzialo took over leadership of the firm and today GTG is Nashville’s largest woman owned architectural firm.  The firm continues to specialize in healthcare and educational project types, and GTG’s core values remain the same as when our company began.  We believe in providing value, we believe in quality client service, we believe in collaboration and teamwork, and we believe in good design. GTG has an extraordinary retention rate of both its employees and clients – a testimony of commitment to our core values.
