"Chris Clark with BIM6x, and his whole office always have your back. Whether I’ve lost my key before a big presentation (they got me a replacement the next morning!) or when I’ve had technical or installation questions they put you to the top of the list. We’ve been working with BIM6x for over ten years now, and there isn’t one instance where I haven’t been a priority with his team. Formation Architecture has a valuable teammate in BIM6x".
