"FVHD has worked with the Central Bucks School District on a variety of projects over the past 12 years. Projects included the complete renovation of two late 1950's era middle schools and transforming them with additions and renovations into 130,000 sq. ft. contemporary learning environments that will last well into the future. The additions at each school provided new office and learning spaces that added to the building's character as well as provided needed functional space. We have been impressed by FVHD's knowledge of the educational facilities field and their creative solutions to design issues as well as attention to details. If and/or when you move ahead with a project requiring professional design services, I would respectfully recommend that FVHD Architects be seriously considered to provide those services."
