Tom W. Meiklejohn, III AIA Architect


Chris Rockweit-Fond du Lac Credit Union, Fond du Lac, WI

It gives me great pleasure to recommend Tom Meiklejohn, who was the architect for the construction project of the new Fond du Lac Credit Union facility, located at 91 N. Pioneer Rd., Fond du Lac, WI.

As a well-known area architect, Tom put us at ease and earned our trust from our first meeting. He listened to our ideas and needs and designed a modern, yet warm feeling facility, that shows we are a strong financial institution and will have a presence in Fond du Lac for many years to come. Tom's expertise and experience on prior financial institution designs was indeed a plus. He pays special attention to details, yet stays within budget.

Tom kept us well informed throughout the entire process of the project. He is professional, yet very personable and a pleasure to work with.

Thanks for a job well done and a facility we are very proud to work in!

Please feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss the project.

Dick & Ann Blamey-Residence, Three Lakes, WI

In 2008, two years after we purchased a lot on Big Fork Lake in Three Lakes, WI, Tom developed a full set of plans for our dream home from a single picture we took of a lake shore home in Door County. We loved it, but unfortunately it priced out higher than we had hoped. So, we then had Tom modify plans for one we found in a log home builder's repertoire. He also made drawings of the insides of this one so we knew what it would look like in and out before we built.

It was a pleasure working with Tom and his assistants. We finished construction in April 2010 and love our new home which is every bit the home we wanted but within our price range.

Rodney G. Pasch-Government/Office, Fond du Lac, WI

During my time with the City of Fond du Lac, I have had the opportunity to work with Thomas Meiklejohn III AIA on some significant facility planning at the City Government Center. The approach involving a broad base of people with their ideas and concepts and transferring those ideas and concepts to an architectural plan are most effective. His attention to detail and creative solutions to solving workflow applications to facility design is most impressive. I look forward to working with him in the future.

Michael R. Shannon-Holiday Automotive, Fond du Lac, WI

We have worked with Tom Meiklejohn's architectural firm over the past 12 years with the various remodeling and additions we have completed to our facilities.

Recently, Tom coordinator the GM re-imaging for our facility undertook and described by the Genesler Group. His firm executed the drawings and specifications required from the GM Genesler guidelines as well as providing the information required for permitting and construction. The project ran very smoothly with Tom's coordination to/from Genesler as well as with the contractor's and suppliers.

Over the years, Tom's ability to communicate our building wants and needs with the contractors has helped make our dealership much more efficient.

We would highly recommend Tom and his firm for any project you would be considering, whether new or remodeling. If you have any questions, please feel free to give me a call.

Michael Schumacher-Valders Stone & Marble Inc; Material Supplier, Valders, WI

It is with great sincerity that I extend many thanks to you on behalf of Eden Stone Company and Valders Stone & Marble. Working with you to exactly articulate what the client was looking for has been both a great honor, and a great pleasure. With the current state of the economy and the industry, it is rare that a job runs as smoothly as this one has. Everyone's concerted effort has resulted in a wonderful addition to the city's landscape.

Our primary objective was to be your partner in this process-not just a supplier. The relationship that we have formed has been mutually beneficial, and I have enjoyed working with you very much. Capelle Bros. & Diedrich Construction did a phenomenal job on the project, and the client seems to be extremely pleased with the finished result. The combination of your design and the skilled craftsmen on site has resulted in a stunning building. It is truly humbling to have such a showpiece in our community.

I look forward to our future endeavors.

Tom brings his experience and talent to every project; first listening to the client's wants and needs and then developing a plan that incorporates those needs. Additionally, his sensitivity to both budget and what the final projects will be is shown through every project.

Thomas Nordin-Residence, Fond du Lac, WI

We retained Thomas Meiklejohn III AIA, to design our vacation home on Lake Winnebago. Not being from the Fond du Lac area, we received a recommendation to use Tom from a trusted building professional in the area. Living in Hawaii, it was impractical to meet in person during the course of this project, so we designed the house with weekly meetings via teleconference and email. Tom was instrumental in keeping the project organized and keeping our momentum focused on a design which met our requirements.

There were significant constraints on the house, due to the lot size, location, our vision and budget. Tom managed to design a house which exceeded expectations, and yet satisfied the various agencies responsible for construction and lakeshore regulation.

Tom is an excellent listener, taking our (often differing) ideas, and producing creative, interesting, inspired solutions. The end result was a home that is uniquely suited to our lifestyle and yet carries the inimitable qualities that Tom brought to the process. While a modest home, the design has received rave review from our neighbors, family and friends, and fits perfectly within our neighborhood.

We found Tom to be creative and knowledgeable, yet equally personable. We highly recommend Tom, and if you are thinking of having a business, home or remodel designed, explore Tom's website and seriously consider retaining his services, you will be impressed. If you have any questions about working with Tom please do not hesitate to contact me at

Tom Gross-Ahren Gross Plumbing & Gross Residence, Fond du Lac, WI

I have had the opportunity to work on a professional basis with Mr. Tom Meiklejohn, AIA. Tom worked with our company (Ahern-Gross Plumbing) on two major office remodeling projects at our Main Street location in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin.

I also recently finished an eighteen month remodeling project on my personal residence that Tom was instrumental in.

I have been very satisfied with Tom's understanding of these projects and his thorough thought process in achieving a great end result.

Charles Hornung-Classic Cut Hair Salon, North Fond du Lac, WI

My wife and I have worked with Tom on two separate occasions over the past few years. The first time was back in 1996 with the design and construction of our new Beauty Salon in North Fond du Lac. We met with Tom with some hand-sketched ideas and some general themes we wanted in the new construction. After a couple of interactions, we agreed on the design for the new building. Tom did a very good job in creating an architectural drawing and plan by taking our simple design and ideas. Throughout the planning stage, Tom was able to work with us, suggesting different ideas to take advantage of space and following building code requirements. Tom was able to make recommendations as to what builders he would recommend for the type and size of our project. Tom worked with us and our builder throughout the project, bringing all the individuals together to make sure everyone was on the same page regarding the design and timetable.

The second time we worked with Tom was to add an addition to the original construction. This addition was in the fall of 2003. Here again, Tom was able to understand what we wanted to accomplish and worked with us to be as cost conscious as possible but still attain what we wanted with the addition. In some cases where time was of the essence, Tom knew what he could do to speed up the process.

My wife and I would recommend tom as a very capable architect.

Yours truly,
Charles Hornung

Tom did a good job of developing a difficult project in a transitional business and residential area. Economically and aesthetically it turned out much better than we could have hoped.
