On behalf of Lupe Tortilla Restaurants, I am please to provide this letter of recommendation for Strong Group Inc., General Contractor.
Strong Group Inc. has been building Ground-up and Remodel projects for Lupe Tortilla for the last 4 years and has become not only our most valued General Contractor but what I would consider a strategic partner in the success of getting our restaurants open on time and within or under budget. Strong Group has also been extremely successful in helping us find ways to value engineer and implement options to keep projects active that were close to being cancelled.
The team at Strong Group is above the standard. Their values of Transparent Communication, Purposeful Planers and Master of Change and Challenges, are just a few of the reasons they are so successful. From the bidding stages to completion, nothing is ever hidden. Their communications through email and the Smartsheet program gives us a daily picture of what the project looks like and every item they are working on to keep the project in motion. Their weekly meetings and 3 week look-ahead planner is constantly keeping us focused on what we need to have ready and delivered as owners. But most important, in the uncertain times of construction we are in today with the unforeseen changes and challenges that arises in every project, Strong Group is above reproach in every way and always help us remain on track by offering ideas to keep us building.
Lupe Tortilla restaurants are a very detailed and complex build. As with any projects, there are many issues that need to be addressed during the construction process. Whether its drawing conflicts, locating unexpected items during a demo, city issues, material shortages or even owner delays, in each case Strong Group is always professional, helpful, and reasonable in their handling of the issue. Their full time Superintends, and Project Managers are of the highest quality and some of the best I have worked with in the past 20 years.
To sum this up, I highly recommend Strong Group Inc. for any size project that you are looking to hire one of the best GC partners possible, they will definitely be on future projects of ours.
