RE: Testimonial

Our company contracted with Colwell Wangeman Construction in the Spring of 1997 to design and build our new facility at the corner of East Mitchell & Division. Our decision to use CWC was based on their company owner’s presentations, and more importantly, previous customer’s referrals.

While our company entered into this construction project with a good idea of our business’ requirements, it was an absolute necessity that CWC work with our key associates to determine that the new work environment met their specific needs. CWC’s practical experience and recommendations really “cleaned up” our planning thoughts into a design reality.

Of critical importance to our business was on time completion of our project. Scheduling of outside help and the concerns of closing our business to facilitate our move meant the Nov. 8, 1997 completion date had to be met. CWC marshaled the construction team efforts to ensure our move-in date was met. CWC owner Bart Wangeman was on hand during our move to ensure all building systems were working.

As with any sale, service must continue after the sale is made. CWC has been available to work through building and site issues and continues to work with our company 19 months after we moved into our new facility.
