Although the Lewis residence has been completed for nearly one year now, I felt is was important to provide you with this letter of reference. From our initial meeting it was very clear that you were interested in being a truly productive team member, one who was concerned with providing the highest quality construction while operating within a very thorough and understandable process.
The costs and materials input you provided to us and the Ownwe during the early conceptual design stages of the project was extremely helpful towards helping keep the project within the owners intended budget. The clarity of cost information provided also made it very easy for us and the owner to evaluate various decisions and options on the project.
As you well know, sometimes decisions need to be made quickly in the field and your willingness to be at the site on a moment's notice was very helpful towards keeping the project moving. The Subcontractors which you you retained for this project were also excellent to work with and really committed to building the best home possible for the Owner. They definitely seemed vested in the eventual outcome of the final renovations.
This project reiterated my belief that a collaborative team-based approach to design and construction is certainly in the Owner's best interest and results in a far superior product and process.
I look forward to working with you and the rest of your highly qualified team on our next residential or commercial project.
Please feel free to provide my name and contact information to any of your prospective customers.

A Home for Generations
It has been a pleasure working with the Bishopric Companies on the construction of a new home in Centerville, MA. Having designed homes in New England for close to 30 years, I can say without reservation Steven’s work is of the highest quality. Steve approaches the construction of a home as a home for "generations", and as such builds it in such a manner as you would expect him to build his own home; solid, well detailed and low maintenance. From an architects perspective it’s also wonderful to find a builder who follows and respects our designs, asks questions and offers intelligent input as construction moves forward. For the Bishopric Companies, like SMOOK Architecture, it’s not just business, it’s personal. Thank you, Steven, for transforming our design into physical reality.

Framing final exam
Bishopric Companies is building a home for my wife and me while we are "off-Cape". The inspections and reports we have received from third-parties is the framing, roofing, window placement, decking and siding work has been exemplary. The job site is immaculate. One architect described the Bishopric framing as the "framer's final exam" and and the grade would be A+. This is not the first home project we have undertaken. We would recommend Steven Bishopric and his crew highly and without reservation.
On behalf of the Osterville Business and Professional Association – and all the residents of Osterville, I want to thank you very much for putting up and taking down the Creche this year – and for many years in the past. But especially this year where you have built us a new manager building. This is certainly above and beyond what we expected – and is most generous on your part and greatly appreciated by all.
It is such a vital part of our Christmas celebration, and it can only be accomplished with the help of people like you and jack Cotton. We all certainly appreciate your contribution of time and effort.
Thanks you again.
