"Our experience with Beers and Hoffman has been excellent. We would recommend them for other projects."
"The success of any design build project is based upon the level of understanding and cooperation the architect and the builder jointly share in meeting the owner’s expectations. It is paramount that the project budget is controlled and communications are maintained throughout the project. We look forward with working with Beers and Hoffman on future projects due to our successful results on the Hondru Chevy Addition."
PR Builders, Inc.
"Beers & Hoffman did a wonderful job bringing our very dated traditional resident hall up to today's standards. They conducted themselves very professionally and displayed their many talents using a team approach. The project was very fast tracked and Beers & Hoffman had the ability to keep the project rolling with plan review and updated plan changes in a very timely matter. The finished product is a fine example of a successful renovation. The students are very happy with the finished product and it makes their experience a memorable one.
Peter Kerekgyarto was the lead design and project architect for the project. He listens well and always responds quickly when there are open issues. He is creative in finding solutions to technical problems."
Lebanon Valley College
"The team did an outstanding job of listening to what we wanted and creatively designing an affordable addition that met all of our perceived needs. They were pleasant to work with and truly sought to make it our project, not theirs. When difficulties arose in during the construction project concerning quality of finishes, the Beers and Hoffman team came to our rescue and prevented the contractor from substituting products of inferior quality relative to the specs. I would heartily recommend Beers and Hoffman to any church considering modifications to their facilities."
Mountville Church of the Brethren
"Beers & Hoffman did a great job on getting our church to find its own vision so we could build a church expansion that best suited our needs"
Matt Knouse – Building Committee Chairperson

"I’ve always enjoyed working with Beers & Hoffman Architects. The professionalism, creativity and understanding of their client’s needs always prevailed over the many successful projects and many years of building a relationship that makes the difference."
"The Beers & Hoffman team has a great understanding of how the design of a project evolves. Their ability to adjust and adapt to the client’s thought processes, their vision, ideas and needs then combining all the information into the design is what architecture is all about. They know how to put it on paper."
"Beers & Hoffman was a great partner! They took the time up front to fully understand what we were looking to accomplish and then they delivered!"

"Working with Bob Beers and the employees at Beers and Hoffman, has been a good experience for the Board and Staff of the Lititz recCenter through our last two projects, and now as we are starting on the new pool project. They are always open to hear our ideas and available to assist with ideas and solutions for the most effective and efficient way to build a solid recreational experience for a WHOLE community to use and use well. Thank you for making it a pleasurable experience each time we expand!"
Lititz Rec Center - Executive Director
"It has been a pleasure to work with you and your associates over the years. All of your employees have been professional, sensitive, timely, and responsive to our needs and desires. They have clearly brought creativity and expertise to the job. Working together you have created a continuity of effect throughout the campus. Just this week a visitor to campus was deeply moved by the beauty of our chapel, particularly noting the color choice, windows, and chandeliers - all of which are a result of your staff's work and counsel. It has been my privilege to know and work with you over the past few years. I would be delighted to recommend Beers & Hoffman and tell others of your superb work."
Evangelical Theological Seminary
"Some Church architects have made a name for themselves by designing the most unique forms ever seen. Calvary voted for Bob Beers, who was more interested in designing forms that met the needs of the 70 Church leaders who defined our functions. Beers designed more churches than anyone we interviewed. He understood our needs for worship, music, education, administration and mission."

"It is with hearty and enthusiastic endorsement that I write you conscerning Scott Shonk. We had been working with a different firm when developing a Master Plan for our new location, but now that we are moving to our Phase I building we decided to go through and interview process.
Scott greatly impressed us, and our working relationship since that hire and has confirmed that we made a good decision. Scott is very responsive to our concerns and has listened carefully to our requests, yet he offers the leadership we need in moving us in the right direction towards what will eventually be a multi-phased, multi-site, and multi-faceted ministry.
The creativity Scott brings to our project has definitely enhanced our confidence that something very special is in the works. One of the great assets for our committee and for the congregation is Scott's demeanor and high character. Scott's experience and expertise is serving us well."
James E. Carver
First Church & LifeSource
"I worked with Scott Shonk for an addition to our church, Wayside Presbyterian Church in Landisville, Pa. I was impressed with Scott's ability to assess the needs of our small congregation, provide an estimate of future needs based on his prior experience, and deal successfully with the unique nature of a non-profit organization. The results were spectacular and continue to be a source of pride for the congregation. His creativity with solving the issues through both the design and build cycle enabled us to achieve an optimal result. Given the opportunity, I would certainly work with Scott again."
Wayside Presbyterian Church
"What sets Beers & Hoffman apart from other excellent design teams is their strength in communication. They were outstanding in laying out concepts and defining the decisions that were needed to a committee of church members who were limited in their understanding of construction. Scott Shonk and Bob Beers, as the project leads, made it clear through their actions that they were personally committed to making our renovation succeed. It was a level of customer responsiveness that is seldom seen anymore but one that really contributed to making it all happen"

"I’ve enjoyed working with Bob Beers, Bob Hoffman and the rest of the Beers and Hoffman team for over 20 years. We’ve done public bid, private bid and design/build projects from churches to factories, community centers to office buildings and one of the most beautiful little libraries I’ve ever seen. As a construction manager that specializes in bringing in large projects at low costs, I appreciate the willingness of Beers and Hoffman to design what’s best for the project, not to some abstract ego goal. On the other hand, I also appreciate that they will strongly make their case for quality design and are willing to push try to find the highest and best use for a facility.
In short, it’s a pleasure to work with Beers and Hoffman. We created some beautiful, cost effective projects together…and we’ve had fun getting them done."
Pelger Engineering & Construction, Inc.
“Of all the projects I’ve been involved with over the 34 years I’ve worked in the district, this was the smoothest for L & I and PlanCon approvals. I would not hesitate to recommend Beers & Hoffman to other school districts. The project was completed on budget and we had a good team to work with.”
Glenn Achey, Director of Business Affairs
Cornwall-Lebanon School District, Lebanon, PA
“Bob Hoffman and Scott Shonk came to our project planning meetings with a unique, open and supportive approach. They were tremendous listeners and ‘idea generators’ who took the needs of all staff and made them happen in an innovative but educationally sound way. Bob and Scott always put people first and that is what made the project so successful. I had always heard, from other principals, the nightmare and horror stories they experienced with their renovation and building projects. But I truly enjoyed the building project experience, and working with Bob and Scott. The success of the project hinged on the tremendous mix of people who came together to work together to solve all the challenges in a positive way.”

waited a long time to be relocated. Our offices were previously
in the basement level of Good Samaritan Hospital. We were thrilled
to learn that not only were we being relocated, but that we would
be working with Bob Hoffman. We are very pleased with the project

stately house in the manner that Dr. Weyland would have wished.
This project is a dream come true."

was a pleasure working with your firm on our project. We felt
especially fortunate to have worked with project architect Bob
Hoffman, AIA, on the design of the new library. Bob listened to
our community and quickly responded with a design that met all
of our needs and complimented the architecture of the surrounding
community. We have received nothing but wonderful comments about
the new facility from not only local residents but individuals
from other states as well. I have been the Director of the Library
for 20 years, and have always envisioned a building like this
for our community. This facility has exceeded our expectations
and is truly the building of my dreams!"
