Executive Vice President, Somero Enterprises, Inc.

During the CM selection, we were very impressed with Chris-Tel’s Team and most importantly the talent that each individual brought to the presentation. We knew Chris-Tel was the right choice for Somero, second to none. From pre-construction all the way thru the final walk-through, Chris-Tel was upfront and communicated clearly and routinely to ensure we knew what was going on each step of the way. We had no surprises throughout the entire job. In today’s world of building construction, that is not the norm. I can honestly say, Chris-Tel is not the ordinary run of the mil CM. It’s not only about Chris-Tel and how they managed the project, but it started at the initial selection of their subs. Every sub-contractor was just as qualified as the next, we were very pleased. I personally would recommend Chris-Tel to anyone coming to South Florida in hopes to build their dream building. It’s been a pleasure working along side of Chris-Tel’s Team and will definitely give them a call for our next project.
