"It was a wonderful experience to work with Andersen Construction. They brought a great deal of expertise, engagement, and professionalism to the project and created a signature building on our campus that continues to receive accolades from those using this outstanding facility. Andersen moved the project along in a timely, organized, and competent fashion resolving problems that inevitably arise and allowing us to open the dining hall as our students arrived on campus for the fall 2016 semester. It is rare to have a new facility that actually exceeds expectations, but that is the way we feel about Canyon Commons. We are extremely grateful for our partnership with the impressive team from Andersen Construction and look forward to any future projects we might do together!"
