"K-12 education is a rapidly changing industry. FRK has the proven experience and creative vision to design a school facility today that will meet the flexibility of facility use tomorrow. In addition to being visionary architects, they bring many team qualities to the planning table, such as strong school construction knowledge, good listening skills, flexibility, patience, strong organization, and leadership. FRK has played a key role at Norwalk in shaping the future of our school district."

"We seek out opportunities to work with frk architects + engineers because they truly understand teamwork and collaboration. They share our value of putting the clients' best interests first and are open to suggestions on how to provide the best value. As a General Contractor and Construction Manager, we feel confident in their integrity and know we will always be treated fairly. We have enjoyed partnering with them on several projects and look forward to many more."

"I have had the privilege of working with FRK on an almost continuous basis for over 20 years and probably have more right than anyone to state what a great group of individuals they have been to work with. They work very hard on behalf of all Owners to provide a high quality building that meets the needs of the Owners, instead of designing a building as a landmark for themselves. Without any hesitation, I would recommend FRK to any future building owner."
Don Foster, P.E.
Mechanical Engineer
"The Clinton School District started our relationship with FRK over seven years ago and has completed multiple building projects with them. I have found FRK to be a very professional company. They do a wonderful job listening to all stakeholders of the District in regards to concerns and ideas."
Gregg Cornilsen
Director of Plant Services
Clinton Community School District
"After years of experience working alongside FRK as a consultant, I can say without a doubt that FRK is first class in all areas. FRK is professional, creative, knowledgeable, easy to communicate with, and they always provide high quality work that the entire team can be proud of. I have found that FRK's Architects pay meticulous attention to the details during construction and use their well thought out construction administration process to make sure that all facets of the project meet and exceed the owner's expectations."
