“We want to express our sincere appreciation to J.C. Anderson, Inc. for being a key element in our overall success. From the achievement of fast-track design development and a GMP contract 25% under budget, to the discovery of construction contingency savings to fund additional scope requests, we’ve relied on JCA for your preconstruction expertise. Throughout construction, your on-site team provided full coordination and proactive communication with Baird & Warner.

Miner, Barnhill & Galland, P.C.

“J.C. Anderson was present at every step of the relocation process, including the initial selection of our new office suite. In researching office spaces in the Chicago River North and downtown areas, it was invaluable to have a contractor that understood the practical space requirements for our firm, in addition to our work culture. With their assistance, we were able to translate our office needs into a comfortable working environment that accommodates all of our employees in a functional and aesthetically pleasing space.”

“With such an expedited schedule, the flow of communication was key to meeting expectations for this project with all of the high-tech features a tech company needs for their operation. Having JCA both honor and protect the design through the unforeseen conditions was very important to us (the architect), but also the end users. It was this communication effort by JCA that allowed Yelp to move in on time with the space they expected.”

“I would like to use this opportunity to say what a great experience I have had with J.C. Anderson, Inc. I worked closely with Steve Perry and his crew every day and it was a pleasure interacting with them. From the very beginning of the project Steve has been exceptionally easy to work with, accommodating, patient and polite. I observed his interaction with other tradesmen during various phases of this project and he always maintained a calm demeanor while providing guidance and direction to them. He was very respectful to our employees and of the work that was conducted in our space during business hours. Never once did I receive a noise complaint during the day. He kept me informed and involved in all decisions that impacted the project and offered viable cost-effective solutions to solve problems that came up. He provided me with weekly updates on the status of each stage of project so that I could keep our employees informed/involved in the progress. From a highly organized persons perspective I truly appreciated Steve’s prompt attention to e-mails I sent and his follow up on pending items – I never felt I had to chase him for the status of any item. His job site was kept exceptionally clean and during the initial stand-up-sit-down phase of the project, our space was always clean on Monday morning as if nothing happened (aside from the new look ). Steve represents your company well and you should be proud to have him as part of your organization. Thanks again for helping us through this project.”

“On behalf of The Kenrich Group, I would like to compliment you and your team for the high quality work you performed on our recent office expansion project. Jose Verduzco was a good communicator and was always professional throughout the project. Our project faced a very compressed schedule. Your team worked diligently to deliver the project as quickly as possible, without sacrificing quality. I also appreciated the team’s ability to minimize disruptions to our current workspace during the adjacent office expansion project. I am very impressed with your company and will be pleased to refer others to J.C. Anderson in the future. Thank you again for the excellent work.”

Partners by DesignPartners by Design

“On behalf of Partners by Design, I would like to thank J.C. Anderson for successfully completing the Aryzta build-out at 350 N. Orleans. Not only did the space turn out as beautiful as we envisioned, it was delivered on time and on budget. In addition to achieving those very important requirements for the project, I would also like to thank the J.C. Anderson team for providing a noticeable quality of work, exemplifying a tremendous work ethic and for being team players.

From the very first meeting on this project both Joe Maguire (Project Manager) and Matt Kantro (Assistant Project Manager) arrived ready to “play ball” ‐ to work together in the best interest of the budget and the client! Additionally, having Greg Wysocki on site as our Project Superintendent was not only reassuring but refreshing – pro‐active supers are a rare find and we appreciate his every effort from start to finish.

The success of this project is a direct result of their hard work, dedication and commitment to our project team and goals. There is no greater compliment than a happy client who continues to engage us in future endeavors post move in.

We are currently exploring some additional work for Aryzta and although we do not yet know what all that may include; we do know they continue to praise the work, the team and will tell anyone who will listen that their initial build out exceeded their expectations. Therefore, we thank you.

We always appreciate it when a client takes the time to compliment and|or thank our teams and although this letter is somewhat overdue, we hope that in no way diminishes the sincerity behind it.

We sincerely appreciate J.C. Anderson’s role in the success of this project and we look forward to our next project together.”

“We want to thank you and your entire team on the wonderful job your firm did in building a new home for Millennium Trust. The new space has energized the workforce, made working together easier and is impressive to everyone who walks through our front doors.

When we did run into a problem, you and Ryan were quick to come up with solutions to meet our needs. We appreciate your firm going to the extra mile for us, while still completing the project on time and within budget.

We would recommend J.C. Anderson for your high standards, ease of working with and responsiveness. We look forward to working with you again.”

B.C. Ziegler and CompanyB.C. Ziegler and Company

“We at Ziegler would like to thank you and your staff for a well-done project! We moved our leadership headquarters to 200 S. Wacker on August 27th, 2007 after a very tight construction schedule and everything went well.

There were many issues from our side of the table that I’m sure caused you frustration, however you certainly didn’t show it and helped us through each and every issue professionally. You “rolled with the punches” as they say. You and your staff’s consultative nature during the project saved us money and helped in the many logistical issues dealing with the new space. As well, you handled a few weighty issues for us and your experience in these regards helped immensely.

Your attention to detail, sub-contractor supervision, building, status meetings, cost control, trouble-shooting and project closure were all top shelf. On time and on budget! Thank you on behalf of the entire Ziegler organization.”
