For more than a decade, architects Jim Gempeler and Russ Kowalski have been using computer aided design (CAD) systems to build upon clients' ideas and needs. Whether projects involve a home or a business, GMK is dedicated to removing the stress from the design process. Using sophisticated software to visually communicate complex ideas and architectural plans, clients can see what it's like to look out the window of their dream house, or open the doors to their new retail space, long before groundbreaking.
