Housing Renovation, Phase 4, U.S. Air Force Academy, CO

”When someone does an unusually good job, they deserve applause.…..In an era when the phrase “Government Contractor” conjures up some unfavorable stereotypes, it’s reassuring to meet a contractor team of decent, hardworking, honest professionals….I would hope a few good words from a satisfied customer could help them win future contracts; I certainly wish them well.”

Harold S. Rhoads, Lt. Col., USAF, CO.
Housing Renovation, Marine Air Corp Station, Beaufort, SC

”I have had the pleasure of working with Atherton Construction and their Project Manager on the Laurel Bay Renovation Project in Beaufort, SC for the past year and a half. … Renovation work is challenging at best, but to perform work in predominately occupied units is the ultimate challenge. I have over 30 years experience in real estate development and construction and have found Atherton Construction and its management of this project to be first class. Atherton’s jobsites are neat, orderly and their construction methodology is second to none. Atherton personnel have been extremely attentive and sympathetic to the inconvenience their work has caused our residents. Atherton is nearly 10 months ahead of schedule on their Twenty-One million Dollar contract. This has been one of the smoothest renovation projects I have ever been associated with and the quality of work is top shelf.”

Peter R. Ross, Project Director, Tri-Command Communities, Marine Air Corp Station, SC
Cow Creek Housing project, Death Valley National Park, CA

”All phases of the project were completed in a timely and professional manner. This project had some very difficult obstacles to overcome to meet the timeframes such as heat temperatures to 125 degrees and the isolated area just to name a couple, but the schedule was followed very closely. The project was completed with a very high degree of workmanship. Highly skilled and talented people represented all trades. Your subcontractors also reflected this same attitude. The end product is something that the Park at Death Valley is very proud of. Both your management in your home office and in the field need to be commended for the job that they do. They set schedules, ordered materials, contracted with subcontractors and made sure that the project stayed on track. It is always a pleasure to deal with a competent and professional contractor. It was great working with your staff and hope that you do more projects for the National Park Service. I hope your company found the park service staff as reasonable and willing to work with as I found your staff.”
