One of the best indicators of our service can be found in how we have served others on their building assignments.
Here are excerpts from client letters we have received.
Walter has been above board and honest in every situation. His integrity is unquestioned. From the early days when he was seeking to discover the vision that was still just an idea in our minds, to dealing with the color of the carpet, Walter has been a blessing.

For the last several months we have been working with Walter. We have found him to be so congenial, so helpful, has great insights for the needs of churches and has a great grasp of building something within the means of the people but also to glorify God.

It was my pleasure as Chairman of Board of Elders at Midland Bible Church to observe and admire the fine professional manner that Walter worked with our Planning Committee and congregation to develop a comprehensive master plan for us. Over a period of more than a year, Walter transformed our diverse ideas into a plan that would allow maximum use of both our existing facilities and proposed additions.

Mr. Pate and his firm have displayed the highest standards of professionalism and expertise. They have consistently endeavored to keep in mind the objectives of the Commissioners Court and the interests of our citizens. The Pate firm has been innovative in their designs, yet within our construction budget and proposed construction schedule. Mr. Pate has been extremely helpful in communication with the news media, the voters, and the regulatory authorities on matters concerning our projects.

Pate & Associates served as principal architect for the new Midland Centennial Branch Library at Midland Park Mall. The successful results achieved in this very compact but efficient user-friendly library help to demonstrate the high level of competence and skill of the architect. In addition to their library expertise, I must mention their eagerness to work in true partnership with management and staff to meet the functional requirements of a building. Yet the aesthetic touches are not forgotten, even while working within a realistic budget.
John W. Deats,
Director, Learning Resource Center
It has been my privilege to observe and work with Pate & Associates on several community plans and developments. Most recently, I worked with Mr. Pate and his staff on the design and development of Centennial Plaza, a $1.1 million development in downtown Midland. I found the Pate firm to be professionally competent and personally responsive in every respect. Despite the duration of the project, and the complex political and financial issues involved, the firm surpassed our every expectation.
Guy McCrary, President
Midland Centennial Plaza Association
Thank you for the work in our $3 million new hospital construction project. The project was initiated with the request that the overall cost be completed at or under budget. The goal was accomplished and the building quality was not sacrificed. We have been in the building for 3 years and its structure and lay-out are working well. I would not hesitate to recommend you as an architect. I am glad that I have had the opportunity to work with you.

I have worked with Pate & Associates on various projects including shopping centers, office buildings (new and existing), and churches. Professionalism is what best describes Pate & Associates. They present themselves well and they know the correct way to administer a project, which means knowing the role of the Architect, Owner and Contractor and seeing to it that each performs.

I have known Walter for twenty years and have worked on several projects with him. Walter has always displayed a high degree of integrity, responsibility, and ambition. He is definitely a leader in the Architectural and Planning Field in the Permian Basin. In addition to his excellent design accomplishments, he has proven his leadership ability by working with pastors, building committees and members allowing them to participate in the design process. His good judgment and mature outlook ensure a logical and practical approach to all his endeavors. Walter would be an asset to your building team and I am happy to give him my wholehearted endorsement.
