Client Testimonial:

Now that we are a couple of months past the ribbon cutting for our new facility in Richland, Washington, I would like to say thank you for the Harvey Team's performance. As you know, we started construction in May of 2008 and completed the project in September of 2009. Not only did your team meet all of our expectations during the preconstruction/construction phase of the project, but they continue to meet and exceed all of our expectations during the warranty period today. 

I know that this project was complex, there will always be some warranty issues. In my mind, it all comes down to how they are addressed and resolved. The Harvey Team has risen to the occasion and not let us down. 

Thank you again for constructing such a quality facility. We look forward to working with you again in the near future."
