Testimonials

BA Designs was one of the best things that happened to the IBCT during this hectic timeframe. Once they received the contract, they moved with precision and efficiency to “get the job done”. They actually made it seem easy as they helped throughout the entire process and always stood behind their mission and products. Their team work and winning attitude is a foundation for everything they do and stand for and I cannot recommend them highly enough to anyone wishing another furniture and design contract. They are a winning team!

Lydia and Lee were fabulous to work with. They are very professional and gave great insight as to what would work and not work in the office spaces. I also appreciate the speediness on us receiving renderings – we would meet with Lydia and receive renderings on the same day. I also appreciate the professionalism of the men who delivered and set up the furniture. They were very cordial. I would highly recommend BA Designs to others.

I want to share with you the very positive experience we had in working with BA Designs on a project to develop a new Center for Digital Scholarship within Watson Library at KU. This Center breaks new ground in terms of how we work with the KU Research Community and it took a considerable amount of discussion and design iteration to find a way to design highly modular space that combines digital production with consulting and office space in a welcoming and open manner. We wanted to avoid something that looked like a lab even as the work we do is highly technical. We also wanted a bit of design “spice” in the overall look which would avoid the look of a cube farm without being too edgy. The team at BA Designs helped us achieve what is truly our dream space. We have received many compliments about the welcoming feel and effective utilization of space. We definitely achieved a “wow” factor within very modular surroundings. Best of all, we have effectively brought together our staff team with our clients and our resources in space that works for all.
You are welcome to contact me if you have questions about our experience with BA Designs.

The Leavenworth Police Department would like to fully endorse BA Designs for its service along with National/Kimball products.
In 2000, the Leavenworth Police Department completed construction of a Justice Center that had a variety of offices, workspaces and storage rooms that needed furniture. Working with Janie Bartee and her staff was a pleasure and we were able to obtain complete office designs that included employee furniture, proper layout, ergonomically designed workspaces, and aesthetically pleasing work environment. For nine years the Leavenworth Police Department has occupied the Justice Center and the furniture has held up well and has allowed for the growth of the organization. The products BA Designs provided allowed for flexibility and durability.
I give my highest recommendation to BA Designs and National/Kimball products.
Patrick R. Kitchens, Chief of Police
