Quandel delivered, what was at times a very tough project, ahead of schedule and under budget. They did a great job navigating around some typical project pitfalls: environmental issues, neighborhood and community resistance, design problems, and material discrepancies. We are pleased with the quality of the work, the thoughtful solutions to many of the problems we encountered and the positive attitude that was maintained through the project. The Quandel team was able to act as drivers to build project support and cooperation from the subcontractors and others involved in the project. We look forward to working with Quandel in the future.
