"I would like to express my appreciation for the preconstruction services performed by Andersen. Your coordination of the design/build work of the MEP subcontractors has been superior to anything in my prior experience for this type of construction. Conflicts among the trades, and with the wood structure, have been identified and resolved in advance of construction. In addition, value-engineering of these systems has provided us with the best product for the price."
