On behalf of the Board of Directors of Peaceful Paths, I would like to thank you for the wonderful job your company did on the Dutton-Schilling Housing Campus. Peaceful Paths is forever grateful for the dedication and work ethic of your staff that ensured this project was a success .
The management team that oversaw the project was highly professional and extremely easy to work with on all aspects of the work . Tim, Ryan and Steve could be counted on from the estimation stage through the final walk-through to be available, responsive, and committed to our vision. They understood the unique nature of the work, crossing both commercial and residential lines, and executed the agency’s needs from paper to product without any sacrifices. The team helped us through the difficult processes of permitting, dealing with weather delays, and budgeting constraints so that deadlines were met. Having done other construction projects in town, we have had experience with this process before, and in our judgement, the work of BBI was superior. We have no doubts that the campus will serve our needs for decades to come, and the space your team created is one that will impact numerous lives in our community.
We cannot recommend you and your team enough. The development of a project of this scope is daunting, and for a non-profit striving to continue business as usual while doing construction could have been a disaster. But thanks to your team and their commitment to understanding our work, being available for each step of the process, and ensuring that our needs were met, the Campus now a model of the state.
We wish you continued success in the future and look forward to an ongoing relationship in the community.

This letter is tendered as recommendation for BBI Construction Management as construction management for projects related to community improvement and building renovation. As president of the City of Alachua Chamber of Commerce, I engaged BBI to manage the renovation of a SO plus year old former post office/police station into a combination chamber office, welcome center and historical society multi use building. They did an excellent job of imposing the vision of the architect on to a beautiful facility. They did their work timely, neatly and conscientiously.
This project was performed utilizing grant funding from tourist development monies administered by the City of Gainesville as well as the downtown redevelopment trust funds of the city of Alachua. BBi did an excellent job of documenting the work appropriately for agency approval and dispersal. BBi did an outstanding job working with us to stay in the budget and incorporating in-kind contributions and owner purchased items into the project to keep cost below the GMP. When it became necessary for us to postpone completion for a short duration BBI was beyond gracious in their understanding and worked with us to safely put the project on hiatus, came back in and restarted the work program and finished the project on time and in budget.
I can state without hesitation that if, or when, I have another project and will be seeking construction management services BBi will be at the top of my list.

I have a personal interest in the Welfare and Appearance of “The Goodlife Community” Alachua, Fl. and also sit on the building committee for the Alachua Chamber.
When we went looking for someone to renovate our welcome center we wanted someone who was involved in our community and had the experience to do our project.
BBI was chosen because they have been a leader in building design and construction in and around The Heart of Florida for many years and they have a great understanding of the multiple funding sources we had to deal with. Their on site manager kept us informed and on track and completed the job on time and in budget.
I highly recommend and hope anyone would consider BBI Construction Management, Inc for the services they need.
