“Never in my career have I experienced a project where I’ve received so many calls from the tenant or their vendors just to say thank you.

Mays Team and say thank you for making my life easy.”

“I just wanted to let you know we think highly of the team you gave us on this project. I am not sure what you pay a site superintendent but Matt is worthy of every penny.

Thanks and keep up the great work.”

This project was a 3.5 year long endeavor that involved numerous submittals to the City of Scottsdale and changes along the way. Needless to say, I am glad it is done. I wanted to say Thank You for another job well done. I want to single out Rob Johnson and just say what a great guy and hard worker he is. He took complete ownership of the project and saw that every last detail was completed to perfection!”

- Chris Rivera, Sr. Project Manager | DMB Associates, Inc.

They specifically commented on what great communication they received from your on-site management team. They stated that your team is very professional and doing a “great job” keeping the neighbors updated. Moreover, they shared that A.R. Mays has been doing a very ‘high quality job on the development’ and that your team is a pleasure to work with.

As a member of the Paradise Valley Town Council, that is the type of unsolicited, positive feedback that shows great customer service from a quality, professional business operating in our town. I thought you would be proud to hear that feedback.”

- Mark Stanton, Council Member | Town of Paradise Valley

“I want to let you know that I was very impressed by the state of affairs at Sparks. Everything I looked at relating to our work was almost perfectly done. Your Superintendent took the time to walk through everything we need to coordinate and even helped me take my measurements. He introduced me to his plumbing and electrical subcontractors and spent time with us while I answered their questions. I have no doubt you have a guy (Superintendent) concerned not only about his own company but also about the best interests of Galaxy Theatres. Rare attributes these days in my experience.”

- Douglas A. Hayne, President | HayneCo, Inc.

“I would like to express my gratitude to your Company in the Outstanding Job that your team has done at the LNG Facility in Perris, CA. Your team conducted and coordinated all equipment and material in a precise timely manner during the overall construction. Your project Management Team was on top of all submittals and RFI’s which made the job go even smoother by staying on track with the process. The Superintendents were top notch on staying focused in subcontractor detailed scopes, meetings, and safety. They stayed on schedule, were able to gain some days and complete the Facility. Thank you, I look forward to another one with A.R. Mays.”

- Steve Clausen | Clean Energy, a T. Boone Pickens Company

“I’m sorry I didn’t take the time to say this sooner. I have been absolutely stunned by your superintendent’s performance on our project in Mission Grove. Every step of the way this has been a difficult job, I’ve asked for performance and timelines that were borderline impossible, and certainly never easy. Every step of the way he approached the project with a stellar attitude, and has masterfully directed the subcontractors to perform at a very high level.

Every request has been delivered, and bested every challenge in a way few other superintendents could. Please pass on my thanks, and admiration, and please be sure to assign him to our next project together… especially if it means keeping him away from my competitors.”
