“Two years have passed from when our District started going down the long road to provide major facility improvements to all of our educational facilities. Looking back with 20/20 vision, it is amazing how many times John presented the right solution, even regrettably, when we didn't take it. His emphasis of the educational program as the key driver to any dollars spent has been a guiding light to our decision process. Coupled with the aforementioned emphasis is John's commitment to Budget and Schedule. Keeping focus on these three tenets, John has successfully delivered a tremendous amount of value to our organization during a crucial time period for the District.” Mark Rydberg, Director of Finance Moffat County School District RE-1

You both have been instrumental in bringing this project from a distant vision to a reality. You have taken tremendous strides for the healthcare future of this community.

When schedule difficulties arose, John was the one who worked out solutions that met the District’s needs...” Paul Haack, AIA, Principal Anderson Mason Dale Architects
