Cobblestone, LLC
Faced with budget and time constraints, Cobblestone sought the services of Direct Design, Ltd. Archtiecs and Direct Steel, LLC. Direct Deisgn, Ltd. Architects designed the Sports City Academy within our guidelines and time frame. With a seamless transition, Direct Steel, LLC took that deisgn, and as an authorized VP distributor, worked closely with Varco Pruden Buidlings to provide structural deisgn which was quoted, delivered in four weeks and erected in a timely manner. The services provided by both Direct Design, Ltd. Architects and Direct Steel, LLC was professional, knowledgeable and timely. The staffs' attention to our needs and detail allowed our goals to be accomplished. I readily recommend Direct Deisgn, Ltd. Architects and Direct Steel, LLC
