“The ideas John shared and the questions posed provided great perspective that we would not have otherwise seen. That perspective resulted in lower project costs through contract negotiations and alternative solutions to design concepts.

His level of construction knowledge and experience was invaluable when it came to checking the quality of work... and his knowledge of contracts, current construction costs, and labor rates were tremendous assets to our project.”

- Mike Hornacek – Executive Director, Together Omaha
