From our Higher Education Clients

  • On behalf of the University of Vermont I would like to express my extreme pleasure with the result of the unannounced VOSHA inspection conducted on the Jeffords Hall jobsite yesterday. Your management staff did an excellent job representing themselves, your company and the University of Vermont during this inspection. The level of knowledge in regard to VOSHA regulation and requirements, within your staff, is some of the highest that I have seen on any site. Your team has accomplished something very important and it deserves to be recognized. To have an unannounced VOSHA inspection end with a statement from enforcement officer that ‘the site was a A ++’ is something to be proud of.

  • Our DEW partnership began in 2003, and since then they have completed over $40 million worth of very high quality work on the Castleton campus. They have constructed residence halls, fitness centers, a new campus center, a renovated and expanded science center, athletic complex, facilities buildings, an outdoor pavilion, and various and sundry renovation projects that have enhanced and added much value to our beautiful campus.

    - Dave Wolk, President, Castleton State College
  • DEW certainly put its best foot forward for us here at Castleton. We will be opening the residence hall and fitness center next month, on time and under budget. We attribute this success story largely to the work of DEW’s Project Manager and Superintendent. We highly recommend DEW Construction Corp. for construction management and site management services. We plan to contact DEW in regards to future projects relative to our new Master Plan.

  • After researching the area for the best possible options to meet Community College of Vermont (CCV) needs, DEW Properties, LLC secured a combination of properties that have been joined together to provide building space and address the parking needs of the college; yet continue support the downtown community. Through creative financing and an efficient design, DEW Properties has been able to provide a lease option to the college that meets our needs for controlling expenses. By working together with DEW, CCV has a facility that matches its academic program in that it is high quality, strategically designed, and efficiently managed.

  • This was DEW’s first major project here at Champlain College, and after wining the bid last year the College has been ecstatic with the results and the relationship. The day to day management of the project is a testament to the professionalism and craftsmanship of your firm. Champlain greatly appreciates your work and welcomes you back to Champlain anytime.

    - David J. Provost, Senior Vice President, Champlain College
  • Your entire team is highly skilled and easy to work with, and Johnson State College has found that working with DEW has been a true partnership in every sense of the word. Your organization listens to the owner, sets meaningful objectives, and meets them consistently. It is refreshing to see in a business as tough and competitive as yours, where it can be easier to make promises than to deliver the results that have been promised. We knew when we selected DEW that we would have the best of project managers and superintendents working for us, and we expected that they would deliver a superior project.

    - Sharron R. Scott, Dean of Administration, Johnson State College
  • From assembling an excellent team of subcontractors, to completing the work on budget and without delay on this complex and challenging project, DEW Construction’s commitments to quality and detail were exceptional. To top it off, this project set a goal to become LEED Certified. Yet another challenge that, through the efforts of everyone involved…is on track to receive a “Silver” certification.

  • Despite the pressure and long hours, the employees of DEW and its subcontractors were invariably polite, cheerful, professional and sensitive to all those around the busy construction site. This intense focus, combined with an incredibly pleasant demeanor, met the needs of our students, impressed their parents and kept our Admissions Department in full operation. For an institution with a military heritage, there is no statement more fitting than Job Well Done!

    - David Magida, Chief Administrative Officer, Norwich University
  • The MacMillin Company has built more than half of the campus at Keene State. MacMillin’s people are honest and extremely competent. They do what they say they will do. I highly recommend them.

    - Frank Mazzola, Director, Physical Plant, Keene State College
