TESTIMONIALS

CLIENTS:

“I’ve worked personally with the Lambert, Ezell and Durham team since 1996. Although each project has been unique, they are consistently professional, accommodating and especially patient throughout our design process.  They’re approachable, friendly and hometown folks who come to treat you like members of the family.  Those qualities, as well as the exceptional value of their services, are why Bank Independent continues to select LED as our preferred provider of architectural services.

"Humble, approachable and authentic.  Design work fits seamlessly in the context of the surrounding on and off site facilities.  Go the extra mile to accommodate their client's needs. "

"Woodmont Baptist Church has been fortunate to have Lambert Ezell Durham as our architectural firm for over 25 years.  They have designed and help construct the last three major construction projects at Woodmont, two educational buildings and our 1100 seat worship center.  Everyone that we have worked with at the firm has always exceeded our expectations and shown true professionalism in the quality of their work and desire to work with us in all phases of planning, building and decorating our projects.  We continue to utilize the firm on a regular basis for our updating and remodeling needs "

                                                                                         Rev. Steve Thompson, Church Administrator / Associate Pastor, Woodmont Baptist Church

"We were so glad that when we decided to build an indoor shooting range, one of our first calls was to Lambert Ezell Durham.  While we knew constructing a building that caught bullets, filtered air and eliminated the noise took the best architects around, we didn’t realize the value LED would add through permitting, budgeting, scheduling, planning, coordinating trades and engineers, helping with bank needs and the vast amount of advice they gave us to make sure our project was a success. 

Every time we brought them a problem (big problem in our eyes), they would talk us through it and come up with a solution. They even let us know when we were being unrealistic with expectations and gave us much needed realistic deadlines.  

They were with us throughout the project for consultation, advice and support.  And we were able to construct a building that had never been built in our area before in a very good time frame and under budget!  Our next project will start with a call to our friends at LED.

"My experience with your firm has always been very good.  [LED has]...handled every project, large or small, with the greatest professionalism and courtesy.  Even though some of my projects have been very small they have been given the same treatment and priority that I feel are given to much larger projects. "

                                                                                                                    Jim Spinks, Vice-President of Manufacturing, Thacker Casket Manufacturing

                                    

CONTRACTORS:

"We have always enjoyed our relationship with LED for well over twenty five years.  We have found that LED produces quality designs and have always been true professionals in their field.  LED design documents are always thorough and detailed, which is important to the construction crews in the field.  Also, they benefit the Owners and the Contractors with their in-house interior design services.  From the Contractor's stand point, they have always responded promptly to any questions that may arise, which is extremely important in making sure a project progresses on time. "

They utilize the perfect pairing of design detail and functional practicality. Furthermore, they have always treated us with respect, displaying a commendable degree of both knowledge and professionalism."

CONSULTANTS:

"My working relationship with LED goes back over 22 years.  I have worked with them on close to 200 projects, ranging from those small in scope to large multi-million dollar facilities.  We have worked on churches, banks, schools, university facilities, and more.  I have always found them to be knowledgeable, professional, honorable, and hard-working.  They do a great job keeping teams on the same page and working through the inevitable challenges that come with large construction projects.  They have been a pleasure to work with and I look forward to our continued relationship."

                                                                                                                                                             John H. Hurst, P.E., LBYD Civil & Structural Engineers 

"I've enjoyed working with your firm for the past 21 years.  I believe that you have designed some of the more significant projects of the Shoals during that time frame.  I feel that the drawings produced by LED and their consultants are thoroughly complete before they are released to the public.  If you look at the repeat clients that you have, it is a testimony to the consistently good design produced by your firm."

                                                                                                                                                                             Jason B. Lenz, P.E., Shoals Engineering, P.C.           

"Our experience with LED has now spanned over the past 13 years.  Working with them has been such a pleasure and a blessing for us. They are truly a professional firm that takes great pride in the quality of the finished product for the owner.  Not only for the aesthetic parts that you see but also the mechanical systems you don't see.  They have always been receptive to things that we do as mechanical engineers that benefit the owner after we walk away from the finished product.  Their attention to detail and the level of coordination they do between disciplines allows for a true team effort in developing the best set of construction documents possible.  In the end; it's a win-win scenario for the owner and us as the design team."
