Reflective Designworks serves residential and commercial clients around New England. I've worked with homeowners on new construction, additions, and home remodel projects, and with business owners on restaurants, commercial facilities and storefronts. Here's what some of my clients have to say.

Zero Gravity Brewery / The Great Northern

Burlington, VT

“It was a pleasure working with Chris on our brewery tasting room and adjacent restaurant. Chris’s mastery of the fundamentals combined with his progressive mindset and tireless get-it-done attitude made him the perfect catalyst for some of the most successful elements of our design-build project. We had one pretty out there idea and Chris helped hone it in and make it better and then brought it to life in a way that exceeded my highest expectations. Chris is a calm and enlightened presence on the job site. He is an excellent listener which allowed us to have very efficient and productive design sessions. He would often solve problems we didn’t know we had, or offer subtle tweaks that would tie everything together."

Matt Wilson / Co-Owner


Williston, VT

“Chris Kiper is the mastermind behind the concept and design work. We can't say enough good things about him! He has created a visual and conceptual masterpiece that is unlike any other we've seen around the area. An industrial design, just the right amount of funky, and a clean finish that will leave you talking. From welding, woodwork, framework, design, and vision, Reflective Designworks can do it all."

Pat Stewart / Co-Owner

Residential Remodel

Montpelier, VT

"I was immediately struck with Chris' eye for detail, his allegiance to the historic character of the building and his passion for creating beautiful and workable spaces within the framework of their original quirks and charms. Chris brought his vision to us, often with multiple options to choose from, and was always very gracious in respecting our choices. I hope that I will find a time and opportunity to work with Chris again - he is a delightful man and skilled professional."

Greg Guyette / Owner


Montpelier Property Management

Montpelier, VT

"Owning and operating a large rental portfolio, we often require accurate, high-quality floor plans and Existing Condition drawings for marketing, leasing and development. Chris has provided a reliable and cost-effective service to meet this need.  The 3D modeling and design sensibility he brings to the table has proved invaluable through the planning and visualization process for several high-end, multi-unit conversions of downtown historic properties.”

Jesse Jacobs / Owner

Beta Technologies

South Burlington, VT

“It has been great working with Chris on the design of the project. Chris was able to take our many design inputs and make a great model, backed with a plan on how to build the project. The greatest value is that, with Chris's fabrication skills backing his design work, the steps needed to build the project came together great. We will definitely will be using Chris for future design work. "

Tyler McNaney / Consultant

Hunger Mountain Cooperative

Montpelier, VT

“I had the pleasure to work with Chris when he served as our Facilities Manager 2011 and 2012.  Chris is intelligent, organized and dedicated.  He did an excellent job managing a complex renovation of our prepared foods department including coordination with contractors while serving as liaison to our busy operations staff.”

Kari Bradley / General Manager

“I had the privilege to employ Chris Kiper as my Director of Operations for several years.  An integral, trusted member of our team, Chris was a huge asset for many reasons. He maintained our complex facility with skill and meticulous attention to detail. He created systems that to this day help us run more smoothly and efficiently.  He became a member of our team of directors, the leaders most trusted and valued at our company.  Above all, Chris is a person with huge compassion, commitment, motivation....and he is a generous listener, which i valued above all!”
