That the project was completed without an incident involving students, staff and visitors, and within budget is a testament to AM Design’s dedication and commitment to your charge”.

Adam is among the most qualified and committed professionals in the design and construction industry I have worked with. ... combination of development, design and construction expertise provides a unique overall understanding of the project process."

"The review at the Bureau of School Facilities went very well yesterday morning. In fact, the state reviewer, Mark Pappas, made a point of stopping me after the meeting to tell me what a great job Adam (Kornafel) and his team did on the preparation of the documents. This is unusual as the reviewers are very thorough and cover all minor details. They typically find something that needs revisions. I wanted you to know this about our team and their efforts ....... I am looking forward to working with all of you on this project".
