I have worked with Passive Design Solutions in two separate instances and I have nothing but great things to say about their service! PDS provided us with a site evaluation of the proposed building lot. Their evaluation was both thorough and insightful and provided us with the knowledge needed to make a decision to purchase the land. Working directly with PDS was a pleasure! They are professional, knowledgeable and real experts in their field!"~ David Goodyear
