I can only use superlatives to describe the outstanding level of professionalism exhibited by your project manager and his work crews. The work was carried out, among all the trades involved, with great attention to detail, cleanliness, courtesy, and ongoing communication at every stage. It was a pleasure to interact with everyone from your organization, and many of us from the School of Pharmacy looked forward to our daily visits to the construction areas

I wanted to thank you for all your help this past summer. As you know, some of the jobs were difficult at best. With your help, and the help of your staff, we were able to pull it off without a problem. You also did a wonderful job keeping track of all the numbers and changes on the job and your organizational skills were invaluable. It was a pleasure working with you and I'm looking forward to future jobs together
