"I know this review sounds a bit too one-sided, biased or overrated. The truth is I believe everything I have written here. The experience in this project is unlike anything the District has experienced before. Prior to this project, I vetted them out and visited 5 sites of their prior work between San Jose and Roseville. Talking with my peers back then made me very comfortable pushing them forward to our board. They competed against many high-quality firms that I fully trust to do great work. The difference is their understanding of their clients and their company philosophy. They are a tight-nit, a highly-qualified communicative company that’s competence is unparalleled. I urge you to visit some of their recent projects and interview the clients. I would be surprised if they were any different than my perspective above."
