"...we turned to the Cox, Kleiwer & Company Team with the knowledge that they could handle the entire project design, from concept study on day one to the final occupancy of the medical tenant base with ease, creating a modern timeless facility of which we are very proud. The project was very much a success and has received multiple design awards."

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:

Please accept this letter of reference for Cox Kliewer & Company, P.C. based upon our over twenty years of experience working with the principals and employees of this reputable firm.

Sussex Development Corporation is a development/construction management firm handling projects geographically from Delaware to Northeastern North Carolina. We develop new projects for ourselves and other private owners. We have repeatedly referred Cox Kliewer to our clients and even utilized their services for our own development projects.

When it came time to develop a "Class A" medical office facility in Virginia Beach, Virginia for our own firm we turned to the Cox, Kliewer & Company Team with the knowledge that they could handle the entire project design, from concept study on day one to the final occupancy of the medical tenant base with ease, creating a modern timeless facility of which we are very proud. The project was very much a success and has received multiple design awards.

We have referred the Cox Kliewer Team to our clients multiple times resulting in successful new facilites for Long & Foster Realtors of Fairfax, Virginia and Yoder Dairies of Virginia Beach, Virginia, just to name a few. Each of these clients has in turn selected Cox, Kliewer & Company for additional work.

Cox, Kliewer & Company, P.C. embodies the perfect team of players for any project, Jerry Cox and his team for the facility structure and Duff Kliewer and his team for the interiors. Those two facets have proved to be a successful combination for not only Sussex Development projects but also for projects across the Hampton Roads market. An owner can feel confident their new project will be handled from the first idea to final occupancy with a seamless full service design team.

We look forward to the future opportunity to work with Cox, Kliewer & Company and recommend their services without reservation to any potential client.

Sincerely,

Harry L. Davis III
President
