Station 300, Bluffton, SC, Gary Trimm, Managing Partner

"We engaged Court Atkins as the principal architect in a design-build project for our 33,000-square-foot Family Entertainment Center in Bluffton, SC, after a robust competition ….this facility included 24 lanes of high-tech bowling, a full-service 100-seat restaurant and snack bar, an arcade area with 40 games and two party rooms …a complex design with the latest in computer-controlled equipment and audio-visual effects, built in a planned community with strong architectural requirements. The schedule was challenging as were many of the design elements, both exterior, interior and machinery integration. With their help, we began business on the planned date and have experienced trouble-free operation for almost 2 years …we found the Court Atkins team to be honest, hard-working, innovative and very responsive to our needs and to the construction contractor. They were mindful of the cost impact of their designs and with their help in value engineering we completed the project within the planned budget. Station 300 won worldwide industry honor as one of the best designs for a new Family Entertainment Center.”

“Now that the new Fire Station #30 is complete, I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you for the work your firm did on this project. We receive compliments each day on the building. The crews working in the building state that it is very comfortable and the flow of the station works very well for providing for responses to emergencies. The process was very easy and your firm's attention to detail is evident …the building is a source of pride for the entire Fire District and the community. During the initial planning process we told you we wanted a building that would be timeless, easy to maintain and functional. You delivered on all three …The Fire District would definitely recommend your firm for any fire station or design project.”

Timothy L. Rentz, Coastal Contracting Inc., Tidal Creek Fellowship

“Court Atkins was chosen over five or six architectural firms to design Tidal Creek Fellowship and, as the project’s contractor, they exceeded our expectations. Several times during the design phase, TCF made changes that sent the architects back to the drawing boards (which they handled with expertise) …as a builder, I would choose the team of Fraser and Court Atkins. Both firms will deliver what they promise.”

“Our Church chose Court Atkins Architects in Bluffton, SC to design a master plan for our new twenty-acre campus as well as complete a set of drawings for our first building. This process took a little over two years and at one point was started over due to changing economic realities. Throughout the process the staff of Court Atkins was patient and professional …from the very beginning they explained clearly how the process would work and exactly what the costs would be. We found this to be the best value of all the companies we considered. The dealings were always honest and our input was listened to resulting in more than satisfactory results …Court Atkins Architects is a great company to work with and I would most definitely use their services again, as well as recommend them to others.”
