GAZALL, LEWIS & ASSOCIATES, ARCHITECTS, INC. is a local corporation founded and chartered in Flint, Michigan, by Robert S. Gazall in 1968.  Mr. Gazall had over 40 years of experience in providing Architectural Services throughout the State of Michigan. 

In 1999 John R. Gazall, a 2nd generation Architect, became President and Owner of the firm and continues with the commitment, dedication, and integrity that his father demonstrated which remains an integral part of the firm’s success.

GLA is experienced in various Commercial, Institutional, Educational, Multi-Family and Religious Facilities, and has been active in all types of special assignments including feasibility studies, master planning, and building code analysis.

Drawing upon prior experiences the firm understands that clients are exercising a high degree of selectivity in regards to architectural services.  The reasons are clear: service, costs, and quality. GLA prides itself on personalized service, sensitivity to budget constraints, and a commitment to quality control in order to deliver the highest level of professional services to their clients and their designs.


The GLA philosophy is to design creatively, detail effectively, and manage efficiently.

To accomplish successful project management we utilize our 50+ years of building design and construction experience.  GLA has been involved in all aspects of master planning and building construction projects. From new developments and construction to renovation projects of all sizes, from parking lots to master plans, from barrier-free code compliance to Historic Preservation design, GLA has a vast history of experience from which to draw upon.

GLA believes that providing a high quality design service will successfully translate the vision of the owner into meaningful projects as it enhances and modernizes their environment, while meeting budgetary and schedule objectives. Our knowledge of construction projects demonstrates an understanding of the fundamental need to plan and design facilities that meet those standards without compromising innovation to the built environment.

All buildings, whether existing or new, present unique design challenges.  We draw upon our many years of experience along with working closely with the owner and end users to achieve the program requirements to promote a creative design response.  

GLA understands that in today’s economy, owners are more demanding in determining accurate budget estimates for their construction projects.  From square foot budgets to specific line item budgets GLA has a proven track record in the development of construction estimates based on conceptual design development documents.
