What our clients are saying


Even long after the project was completed the Kernick team has continued to advise me on even the smallest of issues.

It's nice to see someone take standard good quality building materials and simply proportion them into a great looking building. Very nice job!

Kernick Architecture's professionalism and experience has provided us with a great new space.

The Student Union project was completed on time and came in under budget. That wouldn't have happened were it not for the persistent attention to detail by our architect.
