I want a firm that will take their experience and knowledge, coupled with the ideas of the district, and turn it into a completed project. I have found that firm to be Fraytak, Veisz, Hopkins and Duthie.”
"[FVHD] has served as architect of record from the beginning with major construction projects since 1980, which include the building of our 71,000 square foot middle school in 1991; an addition to our primary school; replacement of our primary school roof; and most recently the completion of renovations of both building's interiors, along with rooftop solar panel systems as an energy saving and "green" project.
