“It has been a pleasure working with your company on W. Smith, Jr. Elementary School, especially the on site team. From the very beginning of the job, everyone knew the undertaking this project was with a very limited time schedule for the massive scope and the constant collaborative nature of the team at every phase led to a very positive experience for all parties.The tornado that damaged the cafeteria during construction, the rising river level that caused a “No Dig” order and the constant weather of South Louisiana were all handled with ease, and the job continued progress with minimum setbacks. With all of this, the quality of the work achieved has still been exceptional. The building, one of two of the first Public buildings in Louisiana to be built from the ground up since Katrina, is a quality product and more importantly opened on schedule allowing students from one of the most affected areas to begin this school year in a brand new facility.”
