Hi Ken,

I understand Roger will be moving on to another project next week. I want to take this opportunity to let you know that out of the several different foremen I’ve worked with, you have a true foreman in Roger. He did what we needed him to do, has the respect of his men, and has a great attitude. Undoubtedly I will work with Empire Builders in the future. When I do, I want Roger on my project. Please let Roger know that his efforts do not go unnoticed. His men also deserve a big thumbs up. Those framers/rockers working for him were also top notch compared to some I’ve seen and got in here and took care of business as did your finishers. The experience of those framers is very noticeable. Great job on Phase 3 Ken!

Thank you, Ken, for your generous understanding and backing of this project. If there is anything I can do in return, I would be happy to oblige. I would be honored to provide a testimonial for Empire Builders. The work is outstanding and the building process has been the easiest part!

Thank you,

You guys are the reason we were able to keep our schedule and I will be happy to tell anyone who ask, Empire did a great job.

I would like to give a shout out to Empire builders, AEC., Kaufman Fire protection and XL concrete as they have been completely compliant with proper PPE throughout the project without having to be reminded. Thank you for setting the standard and raising the bar for others to see. It has not gone unnoticed.

I do want to let you know that your guys have been outstanding on the jobsite and it has been a pleasure to do work with you all. It has been nothing but extremely helpful in keeping us going and putting pressure on other contractors to keep up. We will continue to do our best to keep you all happy as you have done for us to this point. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you.

Hi Ken,
You and your company are a class act: you’ve built the best drywall etc. subcontracting firm in New Mexico at a time in our industry when quality is rapidly disappearing. I was delighted to hear you will be doing my International District Library and I look forward to your exceptional work. Thanks again and stay safe.
