“As Fire Chief aboard the depot at the time, this was my first experience in a new fire station design and construction and had numerous questions and concerns. In several meetings with Mr. Derryberry during the pre-construction planning and the construction phases, he was very helpful in providing answers to my questions and professionally addressed any changes I desired or concerns I had about any item. His very pleasant demeanor made him easy to relay information to and he was always eager to offer assistance to help me understand his company’s goals and requirements for a successful project completion that resulted in a well pleased customer.”

“As Lead Pastor, David and I have worked together to serve a church that has grown to almost 1200 in weekly attendance. We have faced the challenges of a growing church including building additions and more recently, moving to our newly renovated facility. Besides being a joy to work with, David is a conscientious person who sees things through with integrity. He is able to present creative ideas and communicate the benefits. He provided his invaluable expertise during the 1.2 million dollar renovation of our current campus, giving oversight that resulted in cost savings. I highly recommend David to you without reservation.”

The Black Orchid Salon and Spa is beautiful and credit is due to the outstanding design that David Derryberry created. I would highly recommend him for any architectural work.”

“Utilizing his expertise as an architect and his overall understanding of construction and engineering undoubtedly saved us hundreds of thousands of dollars as we performed our due diligence for our Church transition. Dave gave countless hours and his professionalism and wealth of knowledge was the important factor that allowed the purchase negotiations to move so smoothly.

“He provided excellent leadership during the design, steady patience through the site plan revisions required by the City of St. Charles and has never waivered in his commitment to see us through this project. He has walked us through policies and procedures and constantly provided the architectural direction that we so desperately needed at this time. We are indebted to him in ways that cannot be measured by an invoice and we would heartily recommend him to anyone!”
