what our clients say
We have worked with several general contractors throughout the build-outs of our various restaurant projects, but always welcome the opportunity to work with 41 North. From the initial walk-thru meeting, it is obvious that they embrace our vision of the project and that they have the experience to put an accurate plan and price together. We truly work as a team with 41 North. They value our brand standards and work seamlessly with our architects and designers throughout each phase of construction. Their on-site supervision and exceptional project management ensures things are moving forward and deadlines are met. We know we can reach out to any member of their team at any time and receive an up-to-the-minute status and feel confident we are progressing toward completion. Perhaps the greatest attribute of 41 North is that they are organized and manage each project so that the common pitfalls and hold-ups are nonexistent. Frontera values our work and relationship look forward to our ongoing projects with them.
41 North single-handedly rescued a restaurant and bar build-out project that was grossly over budget after competitive bid. With no time to re-design (let alone re-permit or re-bid) before my client's rent meter started clicking, we were in a very, VERY tight spot. All the cards were stacked against us - difficult municipality to work in, unrealistic timeline for completion (even as bid), and way over budget due to late-breaking financial issues my client was having. And then 41 North sat across the table from my client and myself and told us that they could value engineer this project to the new budget mark, maintain the overall design intent, AND come very close to the original timeline. Of course, I was very skeptical. But I had the absolute joy over the next several weeks of seeing the 41 North team not only achieve these lofty goals, but handily exceed them! Did the design suffer? Absolutely not. 41 North was in nearly constant communication with my design team to insure the overall design remained intact. They were very sensitive to all our design details and offered us countless alternative suggestions to achieve the same effects while slashing long lead times and higher costs. They left no stone for savings uncovered, pressing their subcontractors for ideas at every turn. They also were completely "open book" with their numbers. So I had every confidence that my client was getting the highest value for each and every one of his construction dollars, every step of the way. But frankly, the best part really was the unwavering passion 41 North displayed in rising to this daunting challenge - and succeeding. After the dust settled, I clearly remember seeing the 41 North team at the grand opening party beaming with pride in what they had just achieved. And rightfully so. In today's world, you just can't put a price on the level of pride, passion, and commitment 41 North exudes. This is why I can unequivocally recommend 41 North Contractors for your project.
41 North Contractors and ADE have teamed up on many projects and together we have always succeeded. 41 North is a young and aggressive contractor that puts the client first.
