“ On behalf of the Board of Directors and Membership of the Glooscap Curling Club, I would like to extend our sincere appreciation for the management and services your personnel provided in the installation of the new floor and related renovations to our building. We are especially grateful that the project was completed on schedule thereby ensuring there was little disruption in the scheduling of our regular curling program. It goes beyond saying how important it was that the complete renovation was completed on budget. The fact we had planned for some overrun costs that did not occur enabled us to do work that otherwise would have been postponed for later years. We would also like to commend your personnel responsible for executing the many jobs over the construction period of some four months. The Site Superintendent was most obliging. He kept us well-informed of the work progress and juggled the several projects so that we were able to carry on fundraising events in the clubhouse. The professionalism and quality of the workmanship were very much appreciated.”

“ I'd like to take the opportunity to recognize some of your team members for a job well done. I've been working in Best Buy's Property Development department for over three years and have worked with many General Contractors over that time. The dedication to excellence is rarely perceived, however, your Project Manager (PM) and Site Superintendent have helped make building stores a walk-in-the-park. Timely responses, preparation, and willingness to support issues promptly give J.W. Lindsay an edge. You supplied a great team to get it all done in an efficient and effective manner. It's refreshing to have a General Contractor so organized as J.W. Lindsay. Your PM was very quick at returning change directive costs and this helped make the project close-out a breeze! The PM and Superintendent also managed to stay on top of all deliverables, regardless of the amount of change orders sent their way. This persistence and structure I covet and appreciate all of their hard work. Your teams' work ethic and effective communication with the trades allowed our Future Shop in Bedford Commons to open clean and free from any construction related deficiencies. I'd like to recognize your employees for all of their hard work and persistence to finish this projects more successful than I could have asked. Thanks guys! Kudos!”
