WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Mr. Janzen and the DKJ Architectural Firm are a first-class organization; they work with absolute integrity- being upfront and honest about everything is number one on their list. I never have to worry that I am being "talked" into something that isn't necessary, and I know that all of their work with the state officials will be above board and within the state guidelines.

I have had the opportunity to work with Doug Janzen for over 11 years. DKJ Architects were the architect of our new High school and Elementary School Campuses. These campuses were both beautifully designed and met the educational needs of the district. I was very pleased with his work on these projects and enjoyed my relationship with him through the process. Dough has proven to be honest, and forthright and operates with a high level of integrity.
