Dille Pollard Architecture has worked with us on over $20 million dollars of projects.  They have worked with the college to develop and keep updated a comprehensive master plan for the campus and every step of the way we have been able to depend on them to be the highest quality partner imaginable.  Dille Pollard is the firm for us to ensure a successful project!

Dr. Wesley Payne, President, Three Rivers College

Dille Pollard Architecture has done an excellent job guiding the administration throughout the entire design and building process. They worked closely with me and our staff to ensure that the design of the FEMA Safe Room met our needs as it was integrated to the existing facility. They continued to follow through to the end of construction working with the contractor ensuring that all details were met. I recommend Dille Pollard Architecture for not only design and project management, but for their effective capability to track and manage the project budget.
