Exceeding the standard

From our K-12 Education Clients

  • It is with great pleasure and gratitude that I write this letter to say thanks for the work your team has done. Please do not hesitate to use my name in the future as a reference, based on my experience with this project I would take time out of my schedule to highly recommend DEW for any multi-phased project which is owner occupied, and must meet a more than challenging schedule. I look forward to working with DEW on future projects.

    - Ylian Alfaro Synder, AIA,Ylian Alfaro Synder & Associates, P.C., Cambridge Elementary School
  • Your team of experienced professionals has been steadfast, organized and has evoked a tremendous team environment. Communication on all levels to everyone involved has been great, which has been one of the keys to the success of this project.

    - Bob Mason, Chief Operations Officer, Chittenden South Supervisory Union, CVU High School
  • We are now in the latter stages of the Essex High School and Center for Technology at Essex Project…I want to especially compliment your estimating department, who estimated this work several years ago and whose projected cost of the work has been extremely accurate.

    - Dennis B. Webster, Vice President, Wiemann Lamphere Architects, Essex Tech Center
  • DEW has continued to confirm our initial belief that they are the best company we could have chosen for this project. Communication, care, and the willingness to do whatever it takes to get the job done, from the pre-construction phase to the completion phase, has been the highest priority for the DEW team and their subcontractors.

    - Bruce Murdough, Director of Property Services, Essex High School
  • DEW worked very hard with the school building team to make sure this project came in on budget and on time. They were constantly providing guidance, insight, and alternatives to the design and challenges this project presented. As with any school project, the budget and time line were tight, yet we were able to come in on time and under budget. The communication, commitment, hard work and dedication shown by DEW are second to none and I would recommend them for any project anywhere.

    - Chris Locarno, Business Manager, Orange North Supervisory Union, Williamstown School
  • I am writing to express The Putney School’s gratitude and appreciation with respect to DEW’s work on the Michael S. Currier Center. This important project would not have been possible without the commitment and hard work displayed by DEW and its employees. From bidding to certificate of occupancy, DEW and its subcontractors were responsive to suggestions and sensitive to the fact that the work site was on the grounds of a school.

    - Randall D. Smith, CFO, The Putney School, Michael S. Currier Center for the Arts
  • We, through the leadership of DEW, have established a team approach to this project that has worked well with all sub-contractors, architects, engineers, state representatives and the clerk of the works. We have worked through issues professionally and courteously, and this level of trust and respect has made for a better end product. …I am constantly made aware of the high quality of workmanship that has evolved through this process. DEW has consistently gone over and above to demand high quality workmanship on all aspects of this job. I am grateful for this level of perfection and find this project to be a clear result of the extra effort.

    - Robert M. Fitts, Director, North Country Career Center
  • As the owner’s representative, I have worked with DEW in construction meetings, in change orders, in debates, in budget meetings and in emergency situations; and it is important to understand that in a large school with over 1000 teenage students and 200 staff many situations happen. I would say in all aspects of this project, DEW has been nothing but exceptionally helpful, professional and timely.

    As part of this project, we were constructing and renovating while running a full time career/technical center in the same building. Needless to say, sometimes there were disruptions; but DEW ensured a safe and productive site.

    - Robert M. Fitts, Director, North Country Career
  • On all levels, your staff displayed excellence in communication, organization, timeliness and quality workmanship in the construction of the Living and Learning Centers. If problems arose, they were able to generate viable solutions and offer alternatives. Your team set a standard of excellence of workmanship that was expected from all workers and subs that were engaged in the project.

    - Douglas Dague, Headmaster, Pine Ridge School
  • Over the years The Putney School has engaged the services of DEW for all three of the school’s major construction projects. Given that the field house is scheduled to be a “net zero” consumer of energy as well as LEED Platinum certified we knew that the design and construction of the building would require an extraordinary degree of collaboration and effort on the part of the builder. From the school’s perspective we could not have been happier with the personnel, attention to detail, schedule and budget we have experience during this latest project. We would be more than happy to recommend DEW to potential customers.
