“We are thrilled to be qualified by Radisson Hotels based on our abilities and design excellence,” said Scott C. Maloney, Director of mbi | k2m Architecture, Inc.  “We look forward to building new relationships with Radisson developers and licensees and continue servicing our current clients to the highest standards.”
