“It was such a great pleasure working with Matt! He patiently guided us in selecting a new office space, taking our needs into consideration with understanding, and practicality, and then schematically assessing how our needs could be best met. When we secured a new site, his expertise and professionalism was invaluable, as he navigated us through the retrofit, selecting a contractor, and then ensuring that everything went smoothly, and we were getting maximum value for our money. I appreciated Matt s integrity and sensitivity to our organization’s requirements. I highly recommend working with Matt!”

“Matt prepared a Functional Program for us to document and assess physical space options for our renovation project. It was our first time being involved with such a project and he guided our stakeholders, ensuring the right people contributed appropriately. Matt was curious and respectful, taking time to learn about our organizational context and being readily available to answer questions. He patiently and thoughtfully listened to our program needs and incorporated them into the plan. In addition, Matt was a valuable resource connecting us with other community members who could contribute resources towards making our project a success. It was a pleasure to work with Matt.”
