“I have continued to appreciate working with R. Carlson as a contractor who can coordinate and communicate with design engineers throughout the life of a project from conceptual planning, through design and into construction.”

“R. Carlson and Sons was competitively awarded a challenging, five-thousand sf Tenant Build-out for the Fifth Third Bank of Countryside, IL. The project incurred multiple delays due to permitting, the schedule was in great jeopardy, and budget creep had set in.

Teamwork was key in value engineering the project. Along the way, R. Carlson worked with the future tenant for on-site changes to best accommodate all which was requested for Tenant provided infrastructure. A six-week schedule was reduced to four. R. Carlson and Sons delivered the space under budget and a week early for Tenant Turnover.”
