"I'm writing on behalf of The Mountaineers to convey our thanks and appreciation to Merit Construction for not only delivering a first-class product but also for providing so much guidance and support along the way. Despite the fact that the construction start date for the Tacoma Program Center was considerably later than anticipated due to delays in City issuance of a building permit, and that there were significant unexpected additional requirements (and cost) imposed by the City, Merit was able to deliver the project on-time and under budget!
Tacoma Branch Chair
"Thanks to your weekly construction/coordination meetings your staff ensured that the entire project ran smoothly, came in under budget, and was completed on time. With your value engineering recommendations, we were able to show substantial cost savings on the redesign and resizing of the storm drainage vault and on the suggested alternates used in the roofing structure and materials.
I can assure you that if the family decides to pursue another construction project in the future that we will gladly look to Merit Construction Northwest as our preferred general contractor."

"I would like to express what a pleasure it was to work with the very competent team from Merit Construction. From the initial project meeting through the final punch list walk through the Merit staff was exceptional! Clearly their goals were to provide excellent customer service, including: minimizing an impact on our daily operations, finishing the complex project on time, making sure all parts of the project were completed to our satisfaction, going above and beyond their duty to meet all of our needs, and treating every person involved in the project in a professional positive way.
Understanding how to work positively with people is an intentional skill, and your staff members were all highly skilled in this character trait. We are indebted to them that the project was finished on time, finished to our satisfaction, and finished with a strong feeling of being well served by a great team of professionals.

"Since the job as been completed, we have often commented on the fine craftsmanship throughout the building. Every time minor problems surfaced, the Merit team responded quickly and very positively. It was a genuine pleasure working with them. I would be happy to work with them again and am glad to recommend your company to others."

"Jason [Jason Fridlund, Superintendent] put his heart into this job from the first day. You could see it every day in the quality of work and craftsmanship that was exhibited. He found ways to save a dollar where he could and gave it back to St. Edward's Parish in the finished product."
Walter Horton, Building Committee Representative

"This was my first construction project and I have to say that Tom [Tom Motland, Senior Project Manager] did a fabulous job of mentoring me along the way with all the terminology and processes that were foreign to me. Tom kept the project under budget and continually provided his professional expertise in solving situations throughout our project."
