  Testimonials

Ruby Receptionist

Marcella Vail, Senior Director of Employee Experience

Ruby Receptionist

"One word to describe Nexus 5? WOW! Building out our 24k square foot office space in Kansas City’s River Market district was our first construction project outside of our headquarters location in Portland, Oregon. Nexus 5 worked seamlessly with our Portland-based architect team and delivered a stunning space ahead of schedule, on budget, and with a level of service rarely experienced in the construction sector. Prepared with weekly meetings notes and video tours of our space, the Nexus 5 team maintained constant communication with all stakeholders and their level of quality and craftsmanship is visible in every detail of the space. Only wish, that Nexus 5 opens up shop in Portland."

Home Builders Association

Will Ruder, Executive Vice President

Home Builders Association

"The members of the Home Builders Association of Greater Kansas City are thrilled with the outcome of our recently remodeled facility. The Nexus 5 team, led by John Hinman and Josh McDonald, was engaged, responsive, and professional throughout the entire process. They met every challenge head on and provided timely progress updates through constant phone, e-mail, and in-person communications. Our home builders take pride in the homes they build for the people of the Kansas City metro. It is clear that Nexus 5 takes pride in their work as well. I would recommend Nexus 5 to any organization seeking a high quality, professionally run contractor to refresh and remodel their facilities."

"I couldn’t have been happier with the process of our medical office project and with the wonderful people at Nexus 5. From the design phase to completion, our relationship was a partnership. Their customer service is impeccable, and the quality of their work is top notch. They built the space with the attention to detail that they would have put into their own space. And they finished ahead of schedule. No need to look elsewhere for our next office! Thank you, Nexus 5!"

"If you want to get the job done with excellence, on time and within your budget, then you must choose Nexus 5 for your next construction project. They went the extra mile to ensure we knew exactly what was happening every step of the way. Their team knows how to communicate with a broad scope of people from diverse vocational backgrounds."
