I have been working on projects of this nature for 34 years. The construction of the new student housing facility has, by far, been the most successful in terms of cost, quality, and schedule. Quandel helped us achieve our goal in many respects. We were able to use them as a sounding board from pre-construction forward. The entire process was fluid. At times, we knew what we wanted, but we weren’t sure how to get there. With Quandel’s expertise, they were able to make suggestions, many of which allowed us to save money and put it back into the building. Our objective was to provide excellent student housing, and Quandel played a significant role in helping us achieve this goal. I’m also pleased to add that everyone from our campus who was involved with this project, including our president, was thoroughly impressed with Quandel’s efforts.
