AirPlAne helPs smAll firm AChieVe
How to collaborate effectively is one of the primary challenges for any professional services firm that needs to work closely
with geographically dispersed clients on an ongoing basis. If a series of face-to-face meetings is crucial to the success of
a project and the nurturing of a business relationship, how can a smaller company efficiently service clients scattered all
across the country?
R. Wayne Estopinal, president of TEG Architects – an architectural, engineering and interior design firm headquartered in
Jeffersonville, IN, just across the Ohio River from Louisville, KY – says the answer is a business aircraft.
“One reason we have the airplane is the collaborative nature of our practice,” said Estopinal, whose key employees
spend a total of 400 hours per year traveling aboard a Cessna Citation CJ2+ based at Jeffersonville’s Clark Regional
“Our entire practice is built around ‘efficient design plus productive care.’ That is our strategy for how we plan and
design healthcare facilities,” explained Estopinal, who said TEG’s goal is to create facilities that minimize staffing, achieve
better patient outcomes, and reduce wear and tear on staff.
