RAVES

Janice and her team are just outstanding people. We couldn’t have asked for a better design firm when we set out to improve our offices. We feel lucky to have met; as she delivers on the “no job too big or too small” adage. We’ve hired her firm on follow-on projects, and they’ve treated every one of them with the same care and meticulous detail orientation as the original. J S D A is creative, resourceful, personable and patient—and the results are phenomenal!

I congratulate you on the professional skills that went into the result, but also as importantly on your ability to ferret and sell the concept from the outset.

HISTORIC PROJECTS

This is the most beautiful restoration I’ve seen in Los Angeles, and I will nominate it for the historic preservation awards.

Preservation Architect

Janice’s creative ability to retain the elements of the original Bank’s executive headquarters showcased her code knowledge and helped the Bank save a great deal on the merger project.

- Mr. Dick Rosenberg, President, Bank of America

This mansion is spectacular, the painting technique in the dining room recreating the original silver-leaf finish is awesome.  Stunning.

- Brett Waterman, National VP Sales,  Realtor.com

Janice is a rare designer. She genuinely customizes design to the needs of the client and the space. I hired J S D A for a space in the Hollywood Hills, which was originally a dual-use commercial art gallery. The space has an unusual distribution of space, with Spanish Colonial architecture and loft characteristics. Updating this space for modern living and entertainment/work usage, while maintaining its original architectural integrity, and creating a unifying principle for the entire house was no easy challenge. Her attention to detail, flexibility, and knowledge about architectural history from Spanish Colonial to the Vienna Secession were critical to the project’s success. Love Janice!
Don Krim, Countertenor

FINANCIAL PROJECTS

Broadway Federal Bank has enjoyed working with Janice on several successful ventures. J S D A Inc. worked on our corporate headquarters, studying several feasibility studies and exploring construction options prior to purchasing an existing building on Wilshire Boulevard. Her work was very well received. J S D A also contributed innovative design ideas for our BankSmart banking facility near USC. Janice demonstrates exceptional expertise and commitment to the projects she accepts. We would absolutely use J S D A again for design services.
– Paul Hudson, Chairman, Broadway Federal Bank

As a financial advisor to high net worth corporate founders, our business offices are important…a projection of our image to our clients. J S D A visited our offices, to understand our direction and the constraints of the site. Then, Janice expeditiously guided us, a great executor which enabled all our ideas to be previewed in 3D before undertaking them. J S D A is comfortable to work with, and has exceptional taste.
 –  Robin Taliaferro, Corporate Officer Tax Strategies LLC

ENGINEER RECOMMENDATION

We hired J S D A to be our project leader and oversee all design/construction functions for a commercial office build-out, 20,000+sf, $2M new construction project in downtown Los Angeles. Janice was a master at coordinating all the contractors, managing our demands and the building owner’s issues. She masterly supervised all the construction. This was a difficult project given our short time frame and budget constraints. Janice drove the process and introduced many new cost saving ideas. The office was completed on time and under budget! Janice is a hard working knowledgeable professional who knows how to get the job done. I recommend her without qualification.
Kort King, ABM Engineering

I have worked with Janice on several projects over the past 30 years.  Her understanding of the preconstruction process has been a important factor in the completion of creative spaces based on realistic budgets.  It has been a pleasure to collaborate with her, not only on client projects, but, on issues affecting our industry.

ARCHITECT RECOMMENDATION

Janice is one of those rare professionals who has earned my deepest respect. Not only are her professional ability and ethics without reproach, she is a great designer and truly understands her craft. Anyone who considers hiring her would definitely receive the high level of service expected out of a large design firm, but with the level of detail and attentions that only a smaller firm can provide. Janice’s experience and abilities place her at the top of her industry.  – Scott Field, AIA Architect, Texas
