WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT US
What follows is a sampling of unsolicited reviews and letters of recommendation we have received from satisfied clients.
Just a quick note to say how enjoyable it was to work with you all on the Fairway Independent Mortgage project. Early on we observed some of the innovative ways that you go about your job. As architects, we knew the geometry was possible but we were not at all equipped to answer the questions of exactly how to make it happen in the field. Many contractors we work with would have simply thrown up their hands and told us it couldn’t be done. We commend you on the ownership, craftsmanship and attitude you bring to a project. The glulams and all the finish carpentry was of a custom home quality, executed on a commercial scale. All of the Kramer Brothers people we encountered were direct, honest, and always thought through possible solutions to problems prior to contacting us. It was a great team effort! Excel is hoping we can work together again soon.
Our working relationship with Kraemer allowed us to have our design questions answered quickly and pressing the owner to make decisions that effected schedule, kept the design moving forward, on schedule with minimal budget impact. Kraemer had relationships established with the major building subcontractors/suppliers which allowed POWER to expedite designs without redesign. Kraemer Brothers has procedures and practices in place that were easily adapted into POWER Engineers’ processes.
During construction there were minimal RFI’s which indicated a well-coordinated design-build strategy. Kraemer’s team was well experienced with this type of project, which in turned made the project successful for POWER Engineers. As a company, we look forward to working on another successful project with Kraemer Brothers in the future.
1. We have had a long history of working with them on projects in the past and we were well satisfied with their workmanship, timeliness, cost effectiveness and our ability to have direct involvement in the construction process.
2. Kraemer Brothers has extensive experience in construction of high quality, complex buildings.
3. They are strong supporters of our local community through personal involvement and also economically by employing a local workforce.
4. Their willingness to listen to, and respond to our needs.
Most importantly we knew that this project was the construction of their hospital; the one their family uses and the one many of their workers use for themselves and their families. This is a critical element. A sense of personal ownership by a builder on a large construction project is a rare commodity. It is an aspect that I think truly set Kraemer Brothers apart from any others we might have considered.
During construction. the involvement of Kraemer’s staff, on-site and in-office, effectively identified issues and/or opportunities. Bringing these efforts to the team’s attention for timely consideration proved invaluable. This is a direct result of the team’s willingness to work together as a group, not individually. There hasn’t been one team player not willing to see the other side and weigh the idea’s pros and cons, even if they weren’t the author. In the end, the project’s goals of quality, schedule and cost have always been upheld for the good of the project and not individual interests. This is the end pay-off/out for everyone when they effectively collaborate. Self-interests never surfaced. From my perspective as Project Architect, this is all credited to Kraemer Brother’s leadership and expertise as a team player.
