Bellavia Chevrolet Buick recently completed our Essential Brands Element renovation/addition project. We started this process in early 2013 by obtaining proposals from local contractors. After several proposals were obtained and the applicants were interviewed, we chose Klae Construction of Oak Ridge, New Jersey as our General Contractor. The decision was based on both their realistic pricing and their professional attitude on how they were planning to manage our project.
Klae Construction President, Rod Meyer and V.P of Business Development, Glen Soleau, made us feel comfortable that they would be able to fulfill all our renovations in both a timely and quality manner. After our acceptance of their proposal, Bob Walsh, Klae’s Project Manager was assigned to our site for the remainder of the project. As we ultimately elected to remain in the building and phase through the process, Bob’s professional experience helped make it very manageable for our employees and our business.
We were constantly kept updated on the progress, including any changes that were necessary to the original plans. Having Bob Walsh on site throughout the project was a key element in the outstanding workmanship that was done by all the subcontractors. We were thoroughly advised on all issues through bimonthly meetings that were presented in a very professional and informative manner. Bob’s experience in the construction industry was evident throughout the months he was on site. He kept the project moving and was able to solve any underlying issues with advice and options on proper procedure. His management skills helped to produce a beautifully finished facility.
We are very pleased with our new building. Klae Construction was certainly the right choice for Bellavia Chevrolet Buick. We would strongly recommend Klae Construction and Bob Walsh to any company who is considering a renovation/addition project. They are top notch in their industry and it was a pleasure working with them.
