The team at Gilbert worked hand-in-hand with Western Montgomery Career and Technology Center to provide our community with a quality technical center. Their team listened to the needs of the school, explored many avenues to reach those needs and was available at any time to modify, advise or explain all aspects of a very large project.
Throughout this process, I was extremely impressed with the quality of the Gilbert Architects team as evident in the technical expertise, careful attention to detail, and perhaps most of all, their ability to work effectively with the Upper Dublin community and staff in designing a building that truly addresses the unique wants, needs and priorities of our District.
I have found the firm to be very experienced and competent in the field of public school architectural services. This includes successfully navigating the complex state PLANCON process. In addition I have found Gilbert to be very client oriented with the ability to provide attractive and practical school designs. I would highly recommend them to fulfill you architectural needs.
