Re: Letter of Recommendation : Projx Construction

 

To Whom It May Concern:

 

This is a letter of recommendation based on my experience working with Projx Construction Group. As an owner's representative on many ground up development projects, the experience of working with Projx Construction Group has been nothing but a pleasant experience. The latest project we worked on was a ground up Buona Beef restaurant in Flossmoor, IL.

The project consisted of a roughly 2 Acre site development project, a ground up 4,000SF restaurant, and a future pad for a future retail development. The building that was built is considered to be the prototype for all future flagship stores, and Projx did a great job maintaining strict standards and delivering a product worthy of being a prototype for all future builds. Working through difficult details, nuances, and schedule constraints created challenges that Projx Construction handled in a first class manner. Their job site was always kept tidy, safe, and on track. Prompt responsiveness, communication, and willingness to work through challenges proactively allowed the project to proceed smoothly and be delivered on the date promised. The client was thrilled with the end product.

Projx quickly adjusted to the client's request of a split billing (due to nature of project), and was able to supply all paperwork required to satisfy the Title Company requirements. The use of a Title company is of upmost importance for our client as it helps protect both the GC and client against mechanic's leins, and ensures that all parties involved are protected and paid. Even though additional paperwork is required for this process, Projx navigated the process with ease.

As an owner's representative, I've had the opportunity to work with many General Contractors, and am pleased to express my confidence in Projx, and my desire to work with them on future projects.

Sincerely, RADOSLAW BAFIA, AIA

Goldfish Swim School Gales Point, Belize

Saturday, March 3, 2018

Projx Construction Group was honored to accompany Goldfish Swim School team members from across the U.S. on their yearly mission trip to Gales Point, Belize to assist in the building of a small library addition to the one and only school in the village. As there were severual other small projects we took part in, placing concrete for the second story stairway, laying block for the exterior walls, repairing the dilapidated playground equipment, painting, constructing book shelves along with other tasks occupied our days. 
  All the work we accomplished was done completely by hand, as this is the only way the villagers know. Their work ethic is an incredible display of survival. They grab hold of the required duties and proceed to execute without failure. Their attitude and love for one another is the fuel supporting them.

Disaster Blog from a Bug

Thursday, October 12, 2017
Natural disasters are real…. Nothing good comes from these monsters, except one thing. The perseverance and humanity of the American people. This motion automatically takes a powerful stand. The trickling effect of the storms that keep taking away leaves trail of devastation that never seems to end. My prayers continue for the thousands of victims hardest hit, and for the thousands of responders, volunteers and regular folks that continue to run to the aid of those who suffered great loss. So many of us that weren’t directly affected endure perhaps not so life-threatening challenges. My insignificant little construction project took an indirect slap to the face that no one could anticipate. Receiving critical material has been put on the back burner so we as a nation can continue to give aid and support for the many. Decisions to prioritize manufacturing and shipment of electrical components to the areas hardest hit has added cost and delayed production for, again, an insignificant project, that in retrospect has absolutely impact on the nation. We, the team involved take pride in the fact that though we suffer a very minor inconvenience, this project will complete. With compassion, team work, proactive reasoning and a bunch of money somehow, we are taking indirect measures to give aid to those less fortunate. I am proud to be a part of a team of Americans that are here with understanding and the willingness to accept and move forward. God Bless America…..

Panelized Building

Thursday, October 5, 2017

This week at Projx Construction group, we erected a panelized building. Due to the size of the lot and time restraints of the job, we found this to be an excellent option. Building the walls and roof off site, we were then able to free up space on the site for other work to take place. There was an approximated 4 days of construction time saved by having the walls built off site. Not to mention the aw factor of no building one day to an entire building being on site the next.

Saving money on a Goldfish Swim School in Richmond, Virginia

Thursday, August 10, 2017
We wanted to take this opportunity to congratulate the Projx Team on the exemplary effort that took place on our Goldfish Swim School in Middletown, New Jersey.  After soliciting five competitive General Contractor bids, our project came in well over budget.  Projx jumped into high gear to find ways to evaluate each subcontractor line item, make cost comparisons based previous completed projects with comparable scopes of work and meet with subcontractors to fine tune their estimates.  By performing all of these tasks Projx was able to reduce the overall price by 8% or $128,000.00 without modifying the plans and specifications thus bringing the overall price under budget.  Total customer satisfaction is how we would describe the Projx Team.  Thanks again for all of your efforts to enhance our overall proformance.

Goldfish Swimsuit owners rep

Friday, August 4, 2017
We engaged Projx Construction as an owners rep to assist us with our buildout of Goldfish Swim School in Richmond VA. Given that Goldfish was new to the Richmond market, the GC’s in the area did not have prior experience with the brand. Projx had been the GC for several schools in the Chicago market and we felt they may be able to assist us in working with the GC’s. The initial bids came in and were several $100k over our initial budget. Projx worked directly with the GC’s on our behalf and was able reduce the final bid by $300k!  Todd and Mark were helpful, responsive and were able to help us keep our costs in line.
