“It has been a pleasure working with Vision 3 Architects. I find them innovative, down-to-earth, goal oriented and always available for questions and concerns. I look upon them as part of the team. In fact, they have been one of the key players in the group effort of keeping the project moving forward. A particular challenge with this project has been working with what seems to be a “moving target” budget. Vision 3’s approach was to look at what the client is seeking and determine what can be built with the dollars available. Not only is the project within budget, but we are quite pleased with the resulting design.”
