  18. 18. Testimonials Various Selected Testimonials Our company has employed Intertech Design Services, Inc. / Vamosi Associates for virtually every project we have designed the past 9 years. We have worked together on roughly 24 projects, ranging in construction cost for $1,000.00 to $7,000,000. I am very satisfied with their expertise and in their ability to modify their systems to meet client’s changing needs during the construction phase. I have found them to handle themselves in nothing but a professional manner in dealing with our company, our clients, and the construction subcontractors. Sincerely, Paul Rabinowitz, AIA I am writing this letter of recommendation for Intertech Design Services Inc. / Vamosi Associates to express my complete satisfaction with the firm in general and the principals in particular. During my tenure as Director of Construction and Facilities Planning at The Good Samaritan Hospital, I was introduced to the firm during its early formative years. From the very outset, they demonstrated the highest level of design excellence and commitment to the goals of this particular client. I felt complete confidence in their advice and technical abilities. We undertook numerous complicated retrofit projects that required the utmost resourcefulness and cost consciousness. We were never disappointed in the Vamosi’s performance. Because my projects are small, I have always appreciated their willingness to give them the same attention, as one would expect on a large project. In short, Intertech / Vamosi has my whole-hearted support and I would not hesitate to recommend them to future clients. Sincerely, Dennis S. Malone, AIA
