Tough-minded

It is my utmost pleasure to recommend the Gilbane staff for their unwavering commitment to excellence and tough-minded approach in our project expectations at Einstein and I earnestly recommend Gilbane to the University of Pennsylvania Health System for your project.

Richard Montalbano, Vice President and Project Executive, Einstein Healthcare Network

Innovative

Your innovative construction techniques allowed you to work through the inevitable issues that arise during renovation projects while maintaining the critical milestones and finish two months ahead of schedule.  Best of all, your value engineering suggestions resulted in a final cost that was $2 million dollars under the GMP, allowing us to fund additional scope items that were on the school administration’s “wish list.”

Exceeded Expectations

Your team exceeded our expectations.  Not only did they make it clear that they personally cared about the project, they were also very pleasant to work with.  We require our teams to be flexible and ready to think outside the box.  The {Gilbane} team certainly did that, from Project Engineer up to PM and everywhere in between. The quality of the work, communication about project challenges, schedule, cost status, was all exceptional.

Kristen Chiles, Real Estate Project Executive, Google Inc.

Safety

Gilbane’s proactive approach to safety is reflected in their culture of how they do business and is the primary reason they were selected as our builder.  Through their dedication to excellence and tough-mindedness, the staff continued to add value to our projects and complete them successfully.  Gilbane has remained our builder of choice of for these reasons.

Communication

Gilbane representatives on site provided steadfast communication with me and my staff directly involved in the construction project.

Collaborative

This is my fourth experience with a building project in my career and by far this has been the best successful.  The reason why is because of your team.  They quickly became not only members of a collaborative project team but also m ember of our school community.

Paul Ruggiero, Director of Administration and Finance, Wilmington Public School

Responsiveness

I commend the team for their responsiveness to the owner’s changing needs and their continual attention to detail on this unique project. I could not be more pleased with the quality of work and service provided by Gilbane, and I look forward to working with them on many more projects in the future.

Troy Wohlt, AIA, Project Architect, Uihlein Wilson Architects

Confidence

I have been in the business for over 35 years, and have been involved in, needless to say, many, many projects.  I have never worked on a project where I have had such confidence in the [Gilbane] players to give their word, and keep it. The Police Crime Lab has been the best project of my career.

Jon Kolstad, Sr. Project Manager, City of Phoenix, City of Phoenix Crime Lab

Leadership

The leadership and professionalism that Gilbane has displayed has made working with you an exceptional professional experience and a true pleasure.  The quality of work has been outstanding. From the beginning, Gilbane provided the project management, as well as safety and quality control commitment necessary to successfully execute a highly complex, large-scale, construction project in southern Afghanistan.
