“I just wanted to pass along my sincere appreciation to you and the Lose team for your work on the Brunswick County, NC Parks and Recreation Master Plan 2009. It was a great experience and I was highly impressed with the final product. You more than delivered everything you promised back in your interview in October.” – Jim Pryor, Brunswick County Parks and Recreation Director
“The City has taken on the [Wellness and Aquatic Center at Chester Freeman Park] as a once in a lifetime opportunity for the City of Cullman, AL. One thing I really like is that we’ve only had 1 change order, which is less than ½ of 1% of our total cost. Lose & Associates worked with us up front on our budget and the project came in over ½ million to ¾ million under budget. So, to me, you can’t get any better than that.” – John Hunt, Director of Cullman City Parks & Recreation
“As a client, I appreciate that Lose & Associates focuses on delivering value efficiently, and effectively.

They deliver the extra mile on all the projects we employ them on for Metro Parks.” – Shain Dennison, Director of Greenways, Metro Parks of Nashville and Davidson County
“For 43 years Cracker Barrel has been known for our southern style cooking and has been identified by our front porch and beautiful landscaping. For those 43 years Lose and Associates have provided the landscape design on all Cracker Barrel Old Country Store restaurants as well as our home office campus in Lebanon, TN. As the Director of Construction for Cracker Barrel, I’ve had the pleasure of working with Chris Camps and John Shields, and wanted to just take a moment to pass on how impressed I have been with Lose and Associates ability to manage an account such as Cracker Barrel, with numerous projects being designed simultaneously in multiple states and through some very difficult municipalities. Lose and Associates have provided Cracker Barrel with 3 dimensional design technology that allows us to have the “guest perspective” of how our new stores will look both at opening, as well as at full maturity. I feel that any perspective client needs to give Lose and Associate the opportunity to design their next project.” – Bruce Chaney, Director of Construction, Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, Inc.
“Lose & Associates was chosen for this work through a competitive process that included submissions from local, statewide, and regional firms. It was immediately evident upon receipt of their proposal that they had a greater knowledge and experience base than any of the other firms relative to the planning, programming, design, and construction of specialized recreation facilities. Their knowledge of the unique nature of park and recreation development has proved invaluable in the implementation of these projects” – Darren Green, ASLA, Landscape Architect, City of Alexandria, Louisiana
“Over the past few years, we at Kennesaw State University have had the pleasure to work with Lose & Associates, Inc. on the design of the expansion of our sports and recreation park, to provide additional intramural and club sports facilities for the University. We have found their dedication to the project, their resourcefulness, and their design skills to be excellent and would like recommend them for other university design projects. Going into the project, we selected them due to their expertise in recreation facility design, and it was their ability to negotiate with permit officials to achieve our project goals and their patience in coordinating and and resolving the sometimes different goals of all the interested parties at the University, which led to a very successful project. Throughout the process, they have regularly communicated between the various parties at the University such as the Facilities Department, the Collegiate Sports Department, the President’s Office, and the University Foundation to ensure that as many different desired outcomes merged into a unified result. As the project entered into construction, their flexibility and ability to work the the contractor in the field led to the project remaining on schedule and budget.” – John A. Anderson, AVP Facilities, Kennesaw State University
