"D&H Construction recently completed our new office annex in a very professional and expert manner. We gave them a difficult assignment... Build the structure in a very tight, restricted space, with very limited access... Come up with creative solutions to unforeseen problems... Do high quality work that will stand up to the scrutiny of the 10 architects in our office... Do it within our tight monetary budget... and finally, to do all this in a very short, strictly limited time period."

"(D&H) kept the work on or ahead of schedule during the entire project. They were helpful to us in every phase and patient with our questions and the inevitable changes...

From James W. Nelson, Construction Consultant, Bank of America:

D&H Construction not only met these challenges, but also were able to satisfy the strict reporting requirements of the Bank of America."
