“In difficult economic times, it is often hard to find a silver lining. The strong and beneficial working relationship Goodwin House Alexandria has with Cypress Contracting is clearly a silver lining for us….Cypress has worked diligently to turn over apartments in record time, thus keeping our revenue loss at a minimum and in the process, you have provided quality workmanship meeting the high expectations of our incoming residents. Cypress completed renovations to our Living Room, Board Room and Anne Lee Room…the residents are elated with the appearance and quality of craftsmanship. From my standpoint, your completion on time, and within budget was key…You also had the shortest punch list I have ever seen at the end of a project. Goodwin House Alexandria considers Cypress the ‘Go To’ company for work which cannot be done by our staff…Your staff treats our community with respect and always maintains high cleanliness standards.”

“….what a pleasure it has been to work with you and Cypress Contracting through the years. After so many years and several projects, it is easy to take for granted the notion that each project will run smoothly….the Quest Diagnostics corporate project manager asked if all our projects ran so smoothly and did we have such strong team camaraderie. I had to stop and think about it. Our projects with Cypress Contracting have always run that way. I told this gentleman that each member of the team respects the other and we all work together for the good of the owner and project. It’s often said, but rarely executed so well….in reality, it’s more than that. Cypress Contracting has consistently looked ahead and addressed issues before they became issues. You have always put the needs of the owner first…..other contractors I have known seem to be looking for change orders at every turn…Cypress works to get the job done with the minimum of change orders…When we get to the close-out phase, your team completes the work on time, efficiently and cleanly. There are never lingering punch list items, if there are even punch list items at all. Cypress Contracting’s work has been consistently superior throughout the years and I look forward to continuing this relationship for many years to come.”
