“BLDD’s dedication to commitment and execution, along with the coordination of outstanding contractors, allowed Illinois State University to dream, design and construct the Kaufman Football building in 18 months. We, then, were rewarded with another successful football season.  BLDD’s multiple successes on our projects is a reason they continue to receive commissions.”

“Four Seasons Health Club partnered with BLDD Architects on a facility Master Plan and a 32,000 sq. ft./$5,000,000 addition to an existing facility.  The firm is truly unique in its tireless attention to their clients’ needs and vision.  Communication throughout the project has been excellent.  I appreciate the diligence and professionalism of the staff and have been completely satisfied with the project and look forward to our successful working relationship into the future.  I highly recommend BLDD Architects.”

“BLDD Architects designed and administrated the $2.25 million renovation of the Evans Field House on the Campus of Northern Illinois University.   The project is now substantially complete making it on time, on budget, and on scope.  I’ve found the staff at BLDD to be creative in their problem solving, diplomatic during confrontation, and professional regardless of the situation"
BLDD consistently made intelligent decisions in their design of our facility.
As a representative of NIU, I feel our campus has received a high quality service from BLDD.  Their staff are hard working and eager to satisfy our needs.  When faced with challenges, they have stepped up to meet them.  Returning phone calls is never a problem.
I recommend BLDD without reservation, and believe they exceptionally represent the standard of achievement and ability that universities expect from Architects today.”
