Architectural Client's Testimonial

On two industrial complexes that my company developed. We had two projects to award architectural contracts. So i gave one to Ken and one to a competitor. The competitor’s job ran at $200,000 extras discovered during the job. The Job that ken drew, finished with nearly no extras at all. I can sure tell the difference in having a good clear set of plans like he draws. 

Ken has been performing architectural work on tenant improvements for me for years. He gets the work done with quality drawings and affordable prices.

Las Vegas

I ased Ken to come over and look at what i thought was major work. He showed me how to move my furniture around and paint to get what I was looking for. What started out in my mind as major cost and inconveniance ended up costing me and hour of ken's time and $500 for the painter. Ken's experiance saved me lots!
