"We have just finished the renovation of our 140 year old building. I am happy to recommend the work of Dickinson + Hicks Architects without reservation. As I think of their work, the words artistry and function come to mind. They worked hard to design the kind of building that would be functional and appropriate to our needs. The building is working well and is without significant flaws."
Rev. Raye Brown

"Before we engaged Dickinson + Hicks to design our building, our Committee presented specific ideas as to what was needed, and thoughts about layout. The D+H team took the time to understand us as a congregation and discover our needs, then took our ideas, and developed a building plan that was creative and open, with a genuine sense of flow.
Following the approval of the architectural design of the building by our Committee, D+H undertook the project with energy, working closely with us and the Builder, bringing to bear the experience and expertise of their team, and taking care to expediently follow up on the many details of lifting the project off the page and into reality. There were many cost-saving ideas, as well as pleasing aesthetic features that D+H introduced, which have made a great difference to those of us who 'occupy' this space.
Not only is our congregation very pleased with the end result, but our facility has become a 'landmark' in our City, which we are very proud of.
We are grateful for the vision which motivated Dickinson + Hicks in their partnership with us, and we have no hesitation in offering our recommendation for any project they take on.

"I just wanted to take a moment to thank you on behalf of the building committee and members of Riverside Baptist for all you have done to make our building expansion and renovation project a success. The project is now complete, and the results are exceeding all of our expectations thanks in no small part to the contribution of you and your firm. Your contribution went beyond what we expected of an architect. You helped us think through our ministry vision and then plan how our building will be used for ministry today and into the future. The multi-phase plan will allow our building to grow as attendance increases and ministries expand. We look forward to working with you on future phases."

"I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for your expert help in causing us to think strategically about our new building program. Being a elder in your church, with your close walk with God, gave us a sense of direction with a plan that we now can work through. Since we met with you, our church has taken on a new look. We dealt with the excuses that were holding us back and have progressed wonderfully this year, with a renewed vision and desire to see the Lord work. Above all, I thank you for your honesty, we were a long way from making key decisions and you helped us to see just that. Once again, as I think back on 2005, one of the highlights is you taking the time you did to work with us. A ministry changing weekend. Thanks."
