  • “Bernstein and Associates are very professional, extremely competent, and uniquely resourceful.” (Mr. James T. Rooney, Construction Project Manager, Luitpold Pharmaceuticals, Inc.)
  • “Bernstein & Associates have been an integral part of numerous high profile and extremely significant projects over the last few years and have always performed exceptionally well. While the atmosphere and pace at NYU can be, at times, frenzied and chaotic, they have always risen to the task at hand and performed with extreme competency, commitment and professionalism.” (Mr. Andrew Brennan, AIA – Sr. Project Manager – NYU School of Medicine)
  • “Being an architect myself, I have certain expectations of my design and technical ability. I have worked with some of the largest and most prestigious firms in New York City and frankly, WNB&A’s performance far exceeds any of them.” (Mr. Charles Maggio, AIA, Director of Major Modernization and Special Projects – Brookdale University Hospital and Medical Center)
  • “I am extremely pleased with the finished project. The lab has a feeling of space difficult to achieve in any environment within Manhattan, It is a pleasant place to work for the computer programmers and animators who populate the lab. Given that our laboratory is a computer based installation, there are a number of difficult elements in the electrical and cooling designs, as well as providing efficient high speed networking throughout installation. The lab was designed and built quite quickly, which was a pleasant surprise given my previous experience with similar construction” (Dr. Court Cutting, Associate Professor of Surgery – NYU School of Medicine)
  • “Bernstein & Associates, Architects managed to combine elegance with utility, and we have received many compliments on the finished product. The floor is the envy of occupants of other floors of the Neurological Institute.” (Dr. Stanley Fahn, H. Houston Merritt Professor of Neurology – Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center)
  • “Because of the age of the building, the Project was fraught with difficulties… Bernstein & Associates, Architects dealt with every phase of the Project in a thoroughly professional manner with meticulous attention to detail. They helped overcome problems which seemed insurmountable. The end result…is not only practical but also beautiful.” (Dr. Bennett Stein, Chairman – Department of Neurological Surgery, College of Physicians & Surgeons of Columbia University)
  • “Bernstein & Associates, Architects has shown over and over again the ability to deal with complex and diverse construction problems using creative and innovative ideas. Working with Bernstein and Associates has been a pleasure.” (Mr. Joseph Morgese, Manager – Department of Financial Planning, Cabrini Medical Center)
  • “Bernstein & Associates, Architects were given the difficult task of transforming an old patient care unit into a multi-function…laboratory for us. Given the odd shape of the space, they designed three distinct, practical work areas with wonderfully different design colors and accoutrements.” (Ms. Kathleen Connelly, Director – Laboratory Services, Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center)
  • “We retained Bernstein & Associates, Architects as the designer for the Audubon Business and Technology Center’s biotech incubator (at Columbia University’s Medical School) … We asked (the firm) to resolve a difficult design objective, which was to create labs that would over time be flexible enough to house many different start-up biotechnology companies without the need for costly renovations. … We ultimately utilized WNB&A’s incubator lab design template on two floors. We have been extremely pleased with the results. The labs have been essentially continuously occupied, and we usually maintain a waiting list… In addition to creating a successful incubator lab design, WNB&A provided crucial oversight support during construction. We believe that this resulted in a high level of quality control. Consequently, operations and maintenance costs have been remarkable low over the years … I highly recommend Bernstein and Associates.” (Mr. Mitch Gipson, Executive Director – Audubon Business & Technology Center, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons)
  • “Bernstein & Associates, Architects deserves an A+ rating for the work it has performed for this institution. The quality of design, a delightful change from typical hospital design, is also thoroughly practical. Furthermore, the meticulous planning process which the firm engages in results in an admirable attention to details. All members of the firm were most professional and at all times pleasant. Responsiveness to our questions has always been timely.” (Ms. Rita Robbins, Director – Project Management and Construction, Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center)
  • “The lighting, imaginative designs and solutions to space problems, choice of colors and overall excellence of the final product have not only immensely pleased all the members of my laboratory, but they also have set a high standard and a model…(for) other floors of the Weiss Tower.” (Dr. Bruce McEwen, Professor and Head – Harold and Margaret Milliken Hatch Laboratory of Neuroendocrinology, Rockefeller University)
  • “We were very pleased with the service provided to the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York. The firm in general, and Mr. Bernstein in particular, was highly knowledgeable, responsive to our needs, cooperative, enjoyable to work with and sensitive to the projects’ requirements. Mr. Bernstein maintained a sharp focus on the needs of the project to ensure its success.” (Mr. Ira Schlitt, PE, Project Manager – Dormitory Authority of the State of New York)
  • “Mr. Bernstein’s choice of colors and materials, his experimentation with unique designs, his desire for simplicity, and his efforts to please the client, all…(create) a special place, where the environment reflects and stimulates the quality of the scientific work.” (Dr. Fred Kramer, Chairman – Department of Molecular Genetics, Public Health Research Institute)
  • ” The biomedical research laboratories, in function and elegance…were truly impressive.” (Dr. Lewis Rowland, Chairman – Department of Neurology, Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center and Professor – Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons)
  • “Mr. Bernstein at all times…worked harmoniously with senior management of the School and with various levels of University staff. He is a competent, informed, service-oriented and personally pleasant professional.” (Mr. Gerald F. Lewis, Associate Dean – Columbia University Graduate School of Business)
  • “Mr. Bernstein’s performance indicated and displayed his knowledge of architectural design, code requirements, and construction management administration. I would not hesitate to recommend William N. Bernstein highly for any project that you or anyone else may have in mind.” (Mr. Amos M. Gailliard, Jr., Project Manager – IBM)
