"...I want a firm that will look at the school as if they own the building.I want a firm that will listen to what the Administrators are looking for in a project. 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. All projects were completed on-time and within budget. [FVHD] was very helpful in making sure all documentation and designs were completed to specifications. They were instrumental in the completion of documents sent to the State for SDA grant funding. I would recommend Fraytak Veisz Hopkins Duthie, P.C. to any school district considering a capital construction project, or if needed, as an architect of record for routine projects..."
