Here are what our past clients have to say:
I have had the pleasure to work with Brad on three projects so far, and look forward to many more! As a kitchen designer, he is a pleasure to collaborate with. His design acumen is superb, and his depth of knowledge on architectural details is reflected in his impressive portfolio. He is very talented at transforming poor architecture into a really attractive, proportionate, and architecturally relevant home. But he works on a variety of jobs, and takes every project, whether palatial or not, very seriously. He does a great job of “right-sizing” a renovation to the home and its real value. I have recommended him to several clients and will continue to do so in 2016!Studio Dearborn,
Our project involved the complete demolition of our house and the design and build of a new house. From the outset, Brad was a pleasure to work with, always punctual, responsive and professional. He is patient, a terrific listener and brings a welcomed sense of calm and humor to what could otherwise become a stressful endeavor. With an impressive breadth of knowledge of classic colonial architecture backed by decades of experience, Brad masterfully translated our design wishlist into our dream home. He openly expressed his opinions without being dismissive and offered sensible, cost-effective alternatives when appropriate. Brad was an excellent resource in helping us select products and materials, and more importantly, helping us select a builder. After a rigorous interview and review process, we ended up selecting a builder recommended by Brad, and could not have been happier with our experience. Brad was available throughout the building phase to answer questions, although we rarely needed to call upon him due to the extremely detailed nature of his design drawings. Nevertheless, he was ready with guidance or to execute changes as the project progressed. Without reservation, I would absolutely use Brad again for another project and recommend him to others. We are thrilled with the finished product and grateful to Brad and his team for the crucial role they played.Aileen Brill,
Brad designed and created construction drawings for the interior and exterior renovation of our new home. He was attentive and patient throughout the entire process and always willing to hear our thoughts and explain why it may or may not work. He undoubtedly understands all of the engineering and building requirements for a home while maintaining all of the aesthetic details that one desires. The construction drawings he created for our renovation are thorough and extremely detailed which was confirmed by our contractor throughout the renovation. We are in the final phase of our renovation now and are thrilled with the outcome of Brad’s design.Bonnie Brookshaw,
I have worked with Brad Demotte for over twenty-two years, repeatedly serving as his engineering consultant on hundreds of residential and commercial design projects. This has been a very satisfying relationship for me due to Brad’s conscientious approach to the practice of architecture. His objective has always been to provide his clients with top quality design services:
- In initial discussions to determine client’s needs
- In accurate field observations and measurements to define existing conditions
- In preliminary designs exhibiting imagination and versatility
- In drawing quality incorporating clear details to guide the builder
- In confident and knowledgeable dealings with permitting agencies and builders
- In construction monitoring to verify proper field interpretation and execution
- In clarity of communications and unquestionable professional integrity.
Brad has always proven eager to learn from my engineering input, incorporating faithfully my recommendations regarding structures and construction details. Quite notably, I have very rarely found the need to tell Brad the same thing twice.
Over the years I have worked with many architects and have met none who have proven to be more satisfactory partners in the architect-engineer relationship. For this reason, I have on many occasions referred my own clients and dear friends to Brad when in need of an architect.Sandy Randall, P.E. Randall Engineering,
