When we purchased the building in December 2004, we were aware that Bauen had, a decade earlier, renovated the ground floor as a clinic for Huggins Hospital. A short telephone interview with you led me to urge to my colleagues that Bauen be engaged again as construction managers for our alterations. A decision well made. You were most cooperative and accommodating in working with me as architect in defining, pricing, and scheduling the work, and helping us with those inevitable unpleasant surprises on discovers in a century-old structure.

The relationship which has developed between the school district and Bauen Corporation has been outstanding. The project had moved along well ahead of schedule and the quality of the work has been very good. As with any school building/renovation project changes are requested in the plan after construction has started. I have found Bauen Corporation to be very flexible and fair in accommodating our new requests. With respect to working in a location where children are attending school on a daily basis, they have displayed execptionl sensitivity to our need of conducting an ongoing educational program.

Bauen's construction management approach is highly organized, on time and on budget and with an eye toward value engineering for the owner. They have treated each project budget as if they were paying for the services themselves.

Attention to detail, creative solutions and flexibility are some of the attributes I have found to be consistently present with Bauen projects. Our project timeframe, working conditions and schedule have frequently been challenging. Bauen has always adapted an given us the finished projects that we required.

Our business is often complex and can be stressful and contentious. We know that every building project will have its mini-cases and problems to be solved and avoided. We never have to worry about that when we work with Bauen Corporation; we know our client and our building will be well looked after, and we will look back on a project to be proud of.

With over 18 years of public and private project experience, I regularly receive marketing brochures from builders using popular industry catch phrases to define their abilities. I also understand the difference between sales and service. Bauen separates themselves from most construction companies as one of only a select few that can present actual examples of projects completed on-time and on budget; free of disclaimers and qualifiers.

A number of unexpected problems developed in the early stages of the project. These were in no way attributable to Bauen, and I mention them only because I suspect that may projects experience challenges that were unforeseen at the beginning. In each of these problem situations, Bauen sized up the problem and helped me understand it, worked diligently to explore options for solving the problem and then negotiated with either the town or the subs for a reasonable and timely solution.
