Here’s What Central States Clients Have to Say…

“On behalf of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church of Downers Grove, I want to express our sincere appreciation for a job well done. From the bid process to clean-up, you and your employees handled themselves very professionally and executed the work with a care that exceeded expectations.

“I was particularly impressed with your willingness to work with us on complicated church scheduling and keeping the concerns of the parish at the forefront of your planning and execution of the work. The thought the installers took to preserve the aesthetics of the structure and minimize the interruption of church activities was not only appreciated, but noticed.

“It’s my pleasure to recommend your company to potential customers. If your company’s performance on our behalf was any measure, they’re in for a great experience.”

Sincerely,
Jeff Heller
St. Andrews Episcopal Church

“I just wanted to send you a short note to say thank you for all the excellent service with our recent problems… I appreciate that you personally took the time to trouble shoot and get the job done for us.

“There is no doubt in my mind that there is no other sprinkler company that I could have called at 3:30 on a Thursday afternoon that would have been able to supply, man, and finish the job that you did on Friday!

“Thank you again — you made a huge difference in getting this job done on time for our client.”

“Now that the proverbial ‘dust has settled,’ I would like to take this opportunity to commend you for the superb job…

“Your entire project team performed with a level of quality, attention, and cooperation that is rare in today’s competitive construction environment and you should be proud to have such conscientious individuals as part of your organization.

“Our client is very happy and on behalf of Shawmut Design and Construction, I would like to thank you for your team’s contribution in achieving this very important goal. After all, we are in a service industry.

“At Shawmut, we truly believe in maintaining only the highest level of client satisfaction and that is what sets us apart from our competitors.

“I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the fantastic job that you did on Phase II of our sprinkler retrofit project at 70 E. Lake Street.

It is not easy to work around tenants on large scale projects but your guys made it seamless not only for the building staff, but for the contractors working along side of them and most importantly for our tenants. There was minimal disruption and only good responses from everyone we talked to about the project.

We appreciate your ability to complete the project on time and in a cost effective manner. It was great working with you we can’t say enough about how much we enjoyed working with your crew. They made this an easy job for us!

We look forward to working with Central States in the future and highly recommend your work.”
