Hopkinton, MA—As Gorman Richardson Lewis Architects (GRLA) celebrates four decades in business, the firm is embarking on a special program of volunteering, pro bono design services, and charitable giving. Called the 40 for 40 Commitment, GRLA is working on forty initiatives that contribute to the community in a meaningful way—one for each year that the firm has been in business. At the firm’s 40th Year Celebration Gala on June 6, GRLA Principals Mike Gorman, Scott Richardson, and Steve Lewis announced the program, challenging the firm to work with 40 different Non-Profit Organizations over the course of the year, offering services, raising money, and volunteering time.
Currently, GRLA is working with the MetroWest YMCA on interior upgrades, as well as assisting the Performing Arts Center of MetroWest on relocation options, and The Boys and Girls Club of MetroWest for temporary heating options. GRLA also contributed services to the United Way’s Wheat Café in Clinton for their recent relocation project.
