Firm History.

Gould Turner Group 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, Gould Turner Group found itself relocating to Nashville where it had acquired as a client the largest for-profit hospital system in the country.

The firm grew in size and in project experience, adding additional healthcare clients, as well as hospitality, educational, and institutional building types to its portfolio. In 1989, Gould Turner Group transitioned to Steve Turner and Linda Marzialo to continue the legacy of the firm. Over time, Gould Turner Group deepened its commitment to the fields of healthcare and educational design.

In 2005, upon Steve Turner’s retirement, Linda Marzialo assumed leadership of the firm, and today Gould Turner Group is among the largest women-owned architectural firms in the State of Tennessee. Gould Turner Group’s core values remain the same as when the company began – providing value, quality client service,  a framework of collaboration, and impactful design. Gould Turner Group has an extraordinary retention rate of both its employees and clients which is a testimony of the firm’s commitment to its core values.
