“Your company and its key personnel have earned a clear reputation throughout our firm as a company known for its innovative and consistently high-quality and timely work through the many developments we’ve done together over the last two-plus decades.

In each of our collective developments, Griffin has consistently proven their expertise in providing accurate and realistic preliminary cost projections, maintaining the highest quality construction, and consistently executing their work within oftentimes near-impossible schedule parameters. Your entire team’s ability to envision the full scope of a development from the most basic schematic plans, adherence to its initial cost estimates throughout the even most volatile construction market conditions, and its ‘find a better way to build it’ culture are what set it apart from so many other contractors.

Our many mutual clients have generated tremendous utility and value from the buildings that we’ve designed and built together, the success of which is reaffirmed by our continued and enhanced relationships with each of these as well as with our new clients.”

“Submittals were produced quickly and completely, changes were priced competitively and executed quickly, and requisitions were produced on time and without revision.  Switchgear, lighting, and generator arrived early and on time, and were installed per specifications.  Furthermore, WJGEI brought a teamwork mentality to the jobsite and proactively sought effective solutions to jobsite issues.  The electricians onsite worked safely and produced quality workmanship.

The team’s leadership and positive attitude was a major contribution to the overall success of the project.”
