“I deeply regret not writing you sooner to tell you how pleased my agency is”
First, let me say I deeply regret not writing you sooner to tell you how pleased my agency is with the lease construction project your company performed on our Headquarters in Rockville. All projects, especially government projects on a large scale like this one, require many people with different perspectives and interest in the outcome to collaborate or a successful project and a high quality deliverable. Your whole team was instrumental in the project’s success. While the project team was forming and going through the typical growing pains and team building, your team lead was a steady and calming influence on the design efforts and construction plan. Because of his ability to offer alternative solutions for both design and implementation, we kept our aggressive schedule. I would encourage you to use him in any future government work and to do everything possible to have him integrated into the project early. He is an asset.
The project manager joined the team as designs were becoming final and the mobilization was starting. He seamlessly transitioned to the lead for Bognet and maintained the same even keel and collaborative attitude. Through the permitting process, the challenges with product availability and most importantly, customer driven changes, he kept the project moving. He did a fantastic job.
Over my federal career I have managed many large scale construction projects and I have to say, this superintendent is among the best superintendents I have worked with. He is very organized, his demeanor and easy going style make him a pleasure to work with. He brought issues with designs or field conditions to our attention early and worked with his subcontractors to find cost effective solutions. Through two demolition phases, three construction phases and many agency driven change orders, he delivered high quality work on time.
