During our seventeen years working together you have built office buildings to warehouses to medical office buildings and everything in between.  We have counted on you to handle simple tenant improvement jobs to complex historical renovations.  The one constant over the seventeen years has been that every project finished on time, under budget and most importantly with very happy clients and stakeholders.  That is an accomplishment for which you should be proud.
