“I have worked on several affordable housing projects with Brown Lindquist Fenuccio & Raber over the past 7+ years I was with the Housing Development Department at HAC. The three largest projects were all multi-family affordable developments ranging in size from 10 to 40 units.
Affordable housing development is often a lengthy and complex venture with many stakeholders. The knowledge and professionalism of the BLFR team was always “above and beyond”.
Working from a small housing office, I often had questions, issues, and concerns and always appreciated the quick responsiveness and patience of the BLFR team. From the conceptual design process through project closeout, the attention to detail of the entire BLFR staff created projects that were well received by the local community, the many (and varied) funders, and most importantly, the residents who moved in”
Kate Ferriera, former Director
Housing Assistance Corporation
“Our project included renovation of 3400 sf of existing space and adding 4800 sf of new space to the Library. Brown Lindquist Fenuccio & Raber Architects has been with us throughout the long process of making a dream into an idea and an idea into a reality.
The design is beautiful, inside and out, and it fits seamlessly into the village.
Their design and management skills are extraordinary, and they keep a close eye on the project as it is in construction. They also understand the challenges faced by a non-profit trying to raise funds for a capital project.”
Beth Butler, Director
Centerville Public Library
“All of us were highly impressed with the overall service you provided throughout the Art Center project.
Your prompt response to our questions and concerns throughout the development of this project, during our numerous meetings before and during construction instilled great confidence in the overall process.
The final design of the building reflects our original intent and functional needs and aesthetically matches our camp environment. The entire experience was a very positive one.”
Nancy Garran, Director
Cape Cod Sea Camps
“We feel that through your design efforts and hard work, we have succeeded in creating a landmark building in the Town of Eastham.
In addition to the historically-accented design work, your response times, communications, and assistance in every aspect and detail of the construction were all in excess of what could be expected and unprecedented in our experience.”
John Roderick, President
“From first concepts to finished drawings to completed project, exceptional client service was the constant that we greatly appreciated. Staff accessibility was a pleasure.
Hy-Line Cruises and our customers are very happy with the Hy-Line Ferry Terminal Improvements. Our tenants and the neighborhood have become comfortable with the new building.
The building project was a very pleasant experience, and it was within the budget set forth at the beginning.”
“Housing Assistance Corporation has been developing affordable housing across Cape Cod for over 20 years, and our experience with BLFR has been among the best. They are extremely professional, highly organized, detail oriented, proactive with identifying potential problems and their solutions, sensitive to cost constraints, flexible, helpful and fun to work with. They are committed to the cause of affordable housing and of course, they design beautiful buildings.”
Gisele Gauthier, Former Director
Housing Assistance Corp.
“The expansion and renewal of Dennis Union Church continues to draw raves, even gasps of appreciation.
This would have been impossible without your creative, responsive leadership. Of course, this required no small amount of patience from you, what with the competing interests of many boards and committees. I still remember late into the evening, you sketching over plans spread upon the table, as new priorities emerged.
You have ushered us into a new era, from a small country chapel into a growing, bustling congregation looking to the future with many more options now possible for us.”
Dale Rosenberger, Senior Minister
Dennis Union Church
“Everyday I hear complements on the aesthetics of the building from patients or colleagues. It really is a beautiful building and a great asset to the neighborhood.
You did a great job getting everything I needed into a tight footprint and maximizing what I had for space.”
Kelly B. Demarest D.M.D.
Barnstable Dental Associates
“We were extremely satisfied with the services of Peter Brown, Kurt Raber and their staff, both with respect to the building design and the oversight of the construction on both projects. The design of the clubhouse maximized the beautiful views provided by the location and maintained the casual ambiance of the old clubhouse. The design was both beautiful and efficient.”
Peter L. O’Keeffe
President 2001 & 2002, Hyannisport Club
A large portion of our fund raising success has been due to the tremendous enthusiasm engendered by the preliminary architectural plans and architectural model. Both have drawn rave reviews. People just love all aspects of the design.”
David P. Talbott
Dennis Memorial Library Capital Campaign
“…Many of our projects were unique in that all of the work had to be done while the Bank Branches conducted their normal day-to-day business. This was accomplished very successfully through the cooperation, planning and scheduling of BLF&R and the contractors.”
Robert F. Cozzone, Assistant Vice President
Compass Bank (now Sovereign Bank)
“I would like to thank and commend you and your firm for all the hard work, patience and professionalism with which you handled our project.
We were very pleased with the working relationship between your firm, the general contractor and our committee. The design is working great.”
Hyannis Yacht Club
“Eastward Ho! Country Club has just completed a new maintenance facility. We wanted to encompass all energy resources, increase efficiency of the operation, and make sure we positively impacted environmental issues. After many interviews, presentation and background references, we selected Brown Lindquist Fenuccio & Raber in Yarmouthport.
They attended weekly meetings at the club and provided excellent cooperation and patience in working with the town, engineers, contractors and golf specific vendors. All of our goals were met and the project came in under budget and in a timely fashion.”
Bill Bower, Maintenance Facility Chair
Eastward Ho! Country Club
“This is a letter of highest recommendation for you and your team. We have used your firm on several projects at Riverview School and are quite impressed with your knowledge and overall service to our school.
Your prompt attention to all of our pressing matters does not go unnoticed.”
The Riverview School
“They provided consistent high quality design and contract administration phase services on the Sandy Neck Beach Park Project.
Through many a modification and design change, their team pushed to gain acceptance of the project. The final completed project has been well received by the community and is a fine asset to Cape Cod and Sandy Neck Beach.
Few challenges arose during the construction phase of the project which is testimony to the solid bid documents produced and the quality of the communications between team members.”
John Juros, Owner’s Project Manager
Town of Barnstable
“From the first day when the committee met with the architects the firm were the support and guides for our project’s plans. The patience and endurance was exemplary.
Always on task, on time and on budget, I can recommend this fine firm without hesitation. A more cooperative and enthusiastic firm would be difficult to find.”
Ellen Ford, Former Director
Chatham Council on Aging
“I feel that the real strength of Brown Lindquist Fenuccio & Raber revolves around their attention to the needs of the staff and citizens who would use the spaces they created, as well as their particular attention to the unique character, scale and overall architectural presence of the new building located on Main St. Buzzards Bay. Because of their attention to detail, the project has been a great success.”
