“Going into this project, we had expectations that the work would be accomplished.  We are glad to report that Straub exceeded those expectations by going above and beyond and making our space comfortable, efficient and very functional.

The overall goal was to keep the history intact in our new space, yet make it conducive to our efforts of working in the 21st century. With Straub’s execution of the design, both of those goals have been achieved. Straub Construction has performed an extraordinary job, and has made Entertainment Properties Trust a very happy client.” {Project: Entertainment Properties Trust, 909 Walnut}

“All of Straub’s team members were experienced, smart, proactive, creative and, above all, highly professional.  They took responsibility for completing the project proficiently and on time, no matter what obstacles appeared. Each and every member of the Straub team maintained a whole-hearted and positive can-do attitude from start to finish, through weekdays and weekends.

Straub’s performance was beyond commendable; we can all learn a great deal about how to perform our jobs in the best way possible by following the Straub team’s example.” {Project: Entertainment Properties Trust, 909 Walnut}

“From concept to completion, this was both a meaningful and complex project for its size, with numerous stakeholders and rigorous directives that had to be met, such as the project requirements to achieve both LEED-H Platinum Certification and Historic Landmark Status with Federal Approval while keeping to a strictly scrutinized budget.

As with most projects, there were daunting challenges along the way due to budget and time constraints, but thanks to the teamwork between our organizations, and the exemplary efforts of Doug Heinen, Jason Burke, and John Falk to pro-actively identify and resolve issues, we collectively overcame these worries and created a project that has already made a genuinely positive impact on the Historic Manheim Park Neighborhood.” {Project: Bancroft School Apartments}
