“(Emerald) has been a great partner in our building projects. They built our customer care center, and it was such a good experience, we’ve brought them back for other projects. They are a very high-quality construction company, easy to work with, very professional.”

“Over the past decade WTVR has been very pleased with our experiences in employing Emerald Construction for a variety of projects. These general contracting services have run the gauntlet of construction talents from relatively large remodeling and reconstruction projects through custom fabrications to general repairs. Emerald has worked with us from project to planning to completion with competitive pricing and professional execution. Working within the constraints of our 24/7 schedule and other special considerations, Emerald has rolled “with the punches”. Gib DeShazo and the entire Emerald staff have consistently proved their expertise, timeline adherence and most importantly, they have always maintained a friendly and collegial demeanor.”

“We recently hired Emerald Construction for several projects involving significant expansion in two of our Richmond offices. Our overall experience with them was very positive. Gib and his team consistently delivered on their commitments in a timely manner, while keeping lines of communication open all along the way. Their professionalism virtually eliminated any unpleasant surprises. Further, Emerald effectively navigated the challenges of renovating an operating physicians’ office with minimal office, staff or patient disruption. In fact, one of our doctors referred to the entire construction project as a “non-event”. Their staff gained and sustained our trust and goodwill throughout our renovation process, because of their high level of integrity and professionalism.”

“I have worked with Emerald Construction for many years in the capacity of Architect and Owner’s representative. Construction can be a challenging time when working in existing facilities, working to a deadline or discovering unforeseen conditions. Emerald takes all of these in stride by keeping everyone informed during the course of construction. Emerald has always been great to work with and I highly recommend them.”

“For more than a decade Emerald Construction has been a reliable and trusted partner in successfully completing numerous facility projects at Pfizer Consumer Healthcare. They also have the necessary training, skilled personnel and workmanship to complete complex projects in a regulated GMP environment. Consequently, Emerald Construction continues as a preferred contractor for both small and large projects at the Richmond, Virginia site.”

Michael Crumley, Director of Engineering

“I work with contractors on projects throughout the east coast…managing a project remotely can be difficult, but your firm proved to be on top of everything. The weekly construction meetings were clear and concise and you kept me abreast of any concerns regarding lead times, etc., that might affect our scheduled move date.

I can’t say enough about our your job supervisor…his positive attitude and “no problem” response to the little requests were really appreciated, and his attention to detail was obvious when it came time to walk the site for the punch list.

Finally, as the person in charge of watching the bottom line, I appreciate how few change orders there were to the original bid…We will certainly contact you should we require construction services in the Richmond area again.”

“Our experience with Emerald Construction is unsurpassed. They are client-driven, problem solvers and clear communicators. Their project management skills for running and tracking projects are exceptional. Emerald creates a cohesive and crossed-disciplined team based on the client’s needs for each project. The end result is a successful project and a happy client.”

“We can’t say enough good things about everyone we worked with at Emerald. It seemed that Emerald took ownership in their jobs, like this was their project. They all automatically went the extra mile. The Emerald guys helped us with little things that were not their responsibility…

We liked having no surprises. The meetings were well organized; we always knew what was going to happen. The Superintendent sought me out every morning to tell me the plan for the day. The Project Manager kept the communication flow going, and follow-up was excellent. Please use us as a reference!”

“(Emerald) was great to work with. You were very responsive to the staff’s needs. You were always proactive and kept me well informed. Communication was excellent. I did not have any surprises. This was one of the best jobs I’ve seen at the hospital since I’ve been here. We will definitely include Emerald on our future bid lists, no question!”

Ross Cofield, Engineering Supervisor

“My experience with Emerald has been first class since day one…the timeliness and detail of communication was extraordinary. If an issue came up that needed research or an answer, they did not hesitate to take the initiative and find a solution or alternative. They were a breath of fresh air to work with.”
