"I have worked with Chris on multiple Residential Projects over the past 15 years. He has been a trusted advisor in all areas from design to builder selection. His integrity is beyond reproach.  But most of all he, has truly earned my respect and business because he is always available to assist when the inevitable challenges, that are inherent in any project, come up. He is always able to find a reasonable solution. I look forward to many more projects with Brooks Architectural, Inc. in the future! “

It's hard for me to articulate just how proud we are of the rehabilitation of our building in the Benton Harbor Arts District. Your guidance and willingness to tackle a challenging project has allowed us to realize our dream of adding to the vitality of the neighborhood and unlocking true value in our historic (but neglected) building. We have achieved our original goal of creating a unique facility without compromising the underlying identity of the original building. We are very proud of the result!

Chris you are a genius! Thank you for transforming a dark 1960's flat-roofed beach cottage into a bright, spacious magnificent home! Your design captured my vision for the swan I believed our ugly duckling home could become! The interior flow works beautifully and the space is filled with natural light, due to the many windows and open floor plan. The exterior of the house is unique yet traditional - I am calling it "contemporary cottage," but I am not sure that is an accurate architectural term! Thank you.

We used Brooks Architectural for our Tailwinds Condominium project in St. Joseph. Their attention to detail and sensitivity to timeliness allowed us to meet our project goals and stay under budget. Thanks to Chris and his team at Brooks Architectural for a successful job!

We want to thank you for the outstanding job you have done with the renovation of our building. We gave you the challenge of turning an 1855 disaster of a building into a work of art! You were able to capture the spirit of our company.

Now that the 3,300 sq ft addition to my office building on Upton Drive is complete, I feel an obligation to tell you how very satisfied I am with the professional services you have provided over the past twelve months. 

First, you managed the entire construction project in a way that balanced my needs and wishes with the reality of sound building principals and the capabilities of the builder, Ott Construction. 

Second, you handled approval negotiations with the City of St. Joseph and their building inspection staff so efficiently that I spent no unnecessary time dealing with that process. You kept me informed and brought me into the procedures only when a decision or point of preference needed to be made. 

Third, and possibly most important, you created a strong, functional structure with an attractive interior and exterior appearance, yet incorporated my ideas and the builder's without taking them as a threat to your ability or integrity. In summary, I appreciate greatly the thoroughly professional approach which you and your staff employed in handling our entire project. 

Thank you for a job well done.
