Bob Durbois, Master’s Construction
Bob is a consummate construction manager. We completed our first joint project with Bob and his staff over 25 years ago. Since that time he has consistently proven his value. However, his greatest accomplishment took place a few years ago, when we were faced with an obligation to use the building developer’s contractors for the build-out of our client’s suite. The proposed costs were inordinarily high. So, we insisted on “shopping the trades” for better pricing. Bob assumed that responsibility, won the contract, and brought the project to fruition under budget.
Bob Bentley, Bentley Electronics
Bob epitomizes the term “diversified”. In brief, he is a low-voltage wiring specialist. However, on the grand scale, his services include the skilled integration of: IT, telephone, inter-office communications, audio/visual systems, security, and fire-prevention.
Andre Charbonneau, Andre’s Furniture Industries & John O’Brien, Innovative Millwork Fabrications
Andre and John are true artisans. Their quality of workmanship is unequaled in the industry, from fabrication to installation. Between the two companies there is nothing that they can’t build; from plastic laminate and synthetic work surfaces to fine furnishings and natural stones. However, even more distinctive is their commitment to timely delivery and budget containment. Their products are better built, at a competitive rate, and delivered on time.
