“Working with Lindblad Construction was a very positive experience for our facility. We found their pre-construction preparation to be very thorough. Employee training records, required documentation and other logistics were all in order prior to work commencing. Day one, they came prepared with all materials necessary and equipment which was in very good condition and working order. There was no running out to get this or that to keep the project moving forward. Their employees were on time each day, very professional and followed all policies and procedures set forth by our facility. Their onsite management presence was very impressive with attention to detail and safety concerns. The project was completed on time and all quality control issues were dealt with as they arose. We are very pleased with the finished product and would not hesitate at all to do business with Lindblad Construction again.”
