"Project management staff worked seamlessly with the design team throughout construction to stay on target with all LEED requirements and project specific goals. This could not have been done without the hard work of the management team and their dedication to provide the best building possible for the client and ultimately the students who occupy a healthy and sustainable building."
- April Mundy, James W. Buckley & Associates

This is a tribute to the project management team as well as to the field supervision. Both were exceptional. We are very proud to be associated with such a professional company and caring individuals."
