This is the first time I’ve been involved in a design/build project. It was really helpful working with one person to deal with any questions concerning the design or the construction. John [Koury, Quandel’s project manager] was very helpful in dealing with any problems or questions that came up. I was very pleased with how he oversaw and ran the project. The Quandel team met deadlines and kept the project within the schedule. I’d say we got a good product for the price we paid.
