"It is with great pleasure that I write a recommendation for the Eaton Architecture firm as an outstanding company to be considered for any architectural and construction projects. As the CEO of the Utah Navajo Health Systems, I was involved with the Monument Valley Health Center project from the development of design, selection of construction company and every step of the construction and completion process. Bob Eaton and his crew including James Knight were very efficient, knowledgeable and easy to work with. They took our operational concerns into consideration and involved our organization in the planning and evaluation of any necessary changes. The Eaton organization is professional, considerate, courteous, and produces an amazing design and extremely functional facility. Other organizations are very impressed with the Monument Valley Health Center design both exterior and interior. We highly recommend this company for your own architectural needs."
- Donna Singer, CEO Utah Navajo Health System Inc
"For a number of years I have looked forward to establishing a special museum to tell the story of Southeastern Utah. Over the past decade I have worked to acquire land where the headquarters of Southeastern Utah Museum of the West would be established. Each time we studied a piece of land near highway 191 adjacent to Blanding and were close to closing, something would happen to frustrate the effort. Last summer a parcel of 2 acres came up for sale. It was adjacent to the Blanding Visitors Center and just a half block from the main highway though Blanding. Our Museum Board felt this to be an ideal spot and went ahead and were successful in purchasing the two acres."
Gary Guymon, Director, Southeastern Utah Museum of the West
"As the CEO of San Juan Health Systems, I have been involved with the hospitals architecture since the beginning and found Eaton Architecture to be a highly qualified and professional firm to work with. They have met with us and listened to what our staff needed. They are personally engaged in our expansion, with focused attention to key decisions and successful outcome. They are flexible, and have worked well with the various doctors and staff members in the predesign phase. The exam rooms were exactly what the Doctors prescribed. The Eaton team were responsive to changes that arose as the design developed and took into account many existing facility and functional considerations. They have been cost conscience with regard to our budget and their cost estimates kept within our range. We were pleasantly surprised to see the contractor bids were right on the with their initial and final cost estimates provided during the design phase.
We highly recommend Eaton Architecture for your next project."
Phil Lowe, CEO
San Juan Health Systems
"Bob delivered because he and his team cared. They cared about the project and they cared about their client, the University of Utah. I have worked with many architectural firms and found that the esprit de corps Mr. Eaton nurtures is reflected throughout this entire organization. This is a firm that truly listens to the owners, users and consultants and responds with competent solutions"

Re: Performance of Eaton Architecture
This letter is written to summarize our experience with Eaton Architecture on many design-build projects with our firm.
We have teamed with Eaton on many projects over the past 15 years with our primary focus on military work at Hill AFB and Dugway Proving Ground. As our team designer, Eaton has previously completed a $3.5 million project for Storage of Explosive Aircraft Components and a $4.2 million project for Aircraft Battle Damage Repair, both located at Hill AFB. They have also completed the design for an $8 million Munitions Maintenance Facility and we are beginning the design of a new Child Development Facility in which Eaton will serve in a key design position. Eaton also was our team designer for a design build modernization of a civilian dining facility at Dugway Proving Ground. They have proven their capabilities on larger stand-alone projects with the Corps of Engineers and Hill AFB.
We are also involved in the on-going Hill AFB Multiple Award Design-Build Construction Contract. Under this program, and for a period of up to 5 years, we receive Task Orders for the design-build of smaller projects, ranging from $20,000 to $3 million. All of these projects are of the remodel, maintenance, or repair variety. For this program, Eaton is our team design partner. We have successfully completed a number of these Task Orders and several additional Tasks are underway.
Eaton is a highly qualified firm and they bring many outstanding qualities to the program. They are personally engaged in all of the projects, with focused attention to key decisions. They have consistently met design milestones, delivering high quality design documents on time. They are flexible, and have worked well with the various owners, contractors, and subcontractor members. They are responsive to changes that may arise as the design develops. They have supported the construction phase with site visits and revised designs to meet changing circumstances. We have found their fee structure to be highly competitive and we have not experienced design cost growth beyond our initial agreements. They have successfully performed their design role on a wide variety of projects including and aircraft hanger, storage, training, dining, maintenance, and administrative facilities. They are very successful in the management of sub-consultants such as electrical, structural, and civil engineering firms.
We highly recommend the firm of Eaton Architecture for selection of large individual projects or smaller task order contracts.
Please contact me if you wish to discuss the performance of Eaton Architecture on any of our past projects.

Bob and James,
Thanks for your superb effort on the Science Center Addition Program. Your work was timely, effective, and within a very reasonable budget. This information will serve Southern Utah University well as we pursue this very important project to upgrade and improve critical educational lab space.
As in the past, I’ve appreciated working with you and your professional approach to a very time sensitive assignment. Your work was begun as soon as the selection was made public and your tireless work has been well received by those you worked with in the College of Science. Your effort accentuates the needs surrounding a rapidly growing student population that will use such a facility. This program provides the kind of guidance that will be invaluable in the design phase.
Please accept our thanks for a job well done.
Southern Utah University
