LAUSD Facilities Services Division

Don Tisdale, OAR II

 

“...What is quite impressive is that at any roadblock or change, Ohno always had options and alternatives to suggest, keeping the project on track. Compassion is not always associated with construction projects; however Ohno Construction and its employees took a vested interest in the school as a customer and not just another project. It was refreshing to work with professionals that made a concerted effort to go above and beyond the scope of the work. At times there were several different groups working on our campus and Ohno worked seamlessly with all groups ensuring a productive and cooperative work environment, which can be quite rare these days. Ultimately we received excellent communication and customer service, a project that met and exceeded all time-lines,... I look forward to many more projects with Ohno and recommend them highly and with no reservations.”

 

Bellevue Parks & Community Services Department

Ken Kroeger, Project Manager

 

“....These challenges did not disrupt the DTP project, specifically due to the ability of the Ohno team to manage the project, anticipate complications, and come up with solutions to stay one step ahead. Not only did the Ohno team provide superior project delivery, their customer service was outstanding.  They made timely recommendations and were able to explain the ‘science’ in very clear and understandable terms. As a result of their professionalism, reaching a decision on many critical items was made easier – we had the information needed and trusted their expertise and experience. ... It was obvious to me, that everyone at Ohno took pride in their work, as well as instilling this sense of pride in all their sub-contractors. ...After working for more than twenty years in the design and construction field, Ohno Construction is one of the top of contractors that I have worked with and was a critical team member of the DTP project - exceeding all our goals and expectations.”

MacLeod  Reckord, PLLC

Terry Reckord, FASLA, Principal

 

“...They exhibited a great work ethic and a willingness to do whatever was needed, sometimes under difficult circumstances, to make it the best product possible....I’ve been doing this for over 40 years now, and have dealt with numerous contractors. I have been impressed with Ohno’s performance the many times we worked together over the years, but you all have demonstrated once again, by your efforts on Downtown Park, that you are the best."

University High School, Los Angeles

Eric Davidson, Principal

 

“Not only was the project completed well ahead of schedule, it was also completed with unparalleled professionalism and a keen understanding of how a school operates as an educational institution. Ohno's attention to detail created an end product that will positively impact the students of the school and members of the community for years to come. One example of what made this project an exemplar was the request to substitute the planned field materials with state-of-the-art artificial turf and infill that sets our facility apart from all others. Most importantly, it is the relationship between the contractor and the school that made the project so rewarding.”

City of Everett, Parks & Recreation Department

Ryan L. Sass, P. E., Park Department Engineer,

 

“In my career, both as a consulting engineer and with Everett Parks, I have seldom written an unsolicited recommendation letter. In this case, it would be inappropriate not to recognize such a fine organization. I can recommend your company without hesitation or reservation as an example of excellence in construction contracting.”

Department of the Army, Corps of Engineers

Dean M. Schmidt, Alternate Administrative Contracting Officer

 

“....your firm received an outstanding performance evaluation.... Few contractors earn this high evaluation. ....rated you outstanding for quality control, timely performance, and effectiveness of management. In essence, your staff and subcontractors provided the customer a superb facility, on time and free of accidents. You can be proud of your accomplishments.”

Kare Youth League

John Martin, Executive Director

 

“....our project was extremely challenging in dealing with the complexities of the rocky soil and the numerous Federal,

State, County and City agencies...At every step Ohno Construction understood our needs and interests and made numerous suggestions to save us money and make our project better....many unforeseen encounters with our property...Through all these tough conditions, we learned to value the integrity and diligence of working with Ohno. During construction, our management team worked so cohesively with Ohno that we always felt as one team with a mutual goal. Ohno brought new and creative ideas to each issue and always had our bottom line cost in mind. I cannot give enough praise and appreciation to the team...I can truly say that the probability of completing this project without working with Ohno would be less than 10%...it's important to find a contractor who values doing an honest job for an honest price and isn't trying to milk each opportunity to supplement their profit. We have that complete confidence in Ohno Construction. We know they put us first....”

"Yosh, I wanted to write you a quick email and let you know how nice the field looked today at Belmont. Roger and Jeff had a perfect base. We had to use a little spray paint just to make sure it looked like we were doing our job! Anyway, I wanted to let you know how much of a relief it is for me to work with a contractor that knows how to build a perfect base! Thanks."

If they were working or moving equipment near where we were walking, they would stop or go around us so we wouldn't be harmed. Kudos ...for such a fine job.”
