    “I’ve enjoyed collaborating with Kardent since 2008. I was looking for someone who could effectively interpret the design goals of our legacy organization. We had specific ideas to reflect our 120-year history, our core values, and to provide the infrastructure and proper tools to support our staff as we grow. After a few false starts with competing design firms, I finally found Jodi and Kardent! Our 72,000 SF exterior and interior renovation was a huge success and we love our new corporate home."

    "We are in the steel business, not the design and remodel business, so we needed a true partner. Kardent not only made our vision happen, they helped shape our vision. The Kardent team integrated seamlessly with our business people and processes. Their team made it feel like we were doing our remodel with friends, which took a lot of the stress out of the process for our team. No matter what we needed, Kardent had a resource to throw at it. They provided a truly turn-key solution for our office remodel. We had some very specific needs to fit into a very specific budget. Kardent had no problem finding affordable solutions and alternatives that met and exceeded those needs and kept us within budget. Perhaps most important, Kardent communicated and monitored to ensure those needs were met along every step of the project path."
