6,000 sf tenant improvement located on the 2nd floor of the office building located on the southeast corner of 75th & Mission. Scope included a full built out of the space with all glass fronts to all offices, a large entertainment area/breakroom and open office space. This was a fairly straight forward project with great clients.
Great teams make great projects.
From the owners rep (Greg Thornhill), the Fountain Mortgage team (Charity and Mike), Davidson Architecture and Engineering (Kara and Johnathon), our amazing subcontractors and suppliers, to the Nexus 5 team on this project, we are very grateful for each of you. Everyone worked extremely hard, hit deadlines and communicated seamlessly to bring this project across the finish line on time. Thank you for the opportunity to serve you!
Project Schedule: 8 week schedule
Result: “On Time, On Budget, Very Happy Client”
“The Nexus 5 team did a great job of communicating with the tenant, architect, and ownership group throughout the project. Budgets, schedule, and expectations were met and exceeded in a COVID challenged market.” Greg Thornhill, CCFM
“I never dreamed a construction project could be so... GREAT! The industry overall is known for poor communication, delays, surprise price increases, etc. so I was prepared for the worst and hoped for the best. But that fear was unfounded now that I know how your company operates. Your team exceeded my expectations in EVERY way. Looking at a daily schedule for a 4-month project and then seeing things happen on-time, every day of the project was nothing short of amazing. The level of communication and organization when it came to the schedule, changes, approvals, options, etc. was second to none. I want to especially compliment Brent Hastings. His calm demeanor, quick response times, clear communication, friendly attitude, and handle on all the details is what made this project great. He is a true treasure and I hope he has a long and lucrative career at Nexus 5 Group. He is an absolute winner. I also want to say how wonderful Buel McDonald has been to us, as well. We crashed in on his site unannounced more times than I can count. He was always gracious, informative, and gave us a real sense of security that this job site was in the best hands. Plus, the site was SO CLEAN! I've never seen anything like it. Buel put all of us at ease. Having him there was a huge highlight of this project." Charity Ohlund, Fountain Mortgage
“THANK YOU for bringing Fountain Mortgage and Nexus 5 Group together. I can't imagine it going any better. The final product is beautiful and I can't wait for you to see it! I knew that this project would require a contractor with outstanding communication capabilities. My client is an outstanding communicator herself and would need someone equally capable. Nexus5 met the challenge.” Mike Levitan, Area Real Estate
