Testimonial:

Wolfgang has been with us since the start of construction and has led the job for us in all aspects. I can say he has done an incredible job-unbelievable really. He has an excellent working relationship with the engineer / monitor of the job, the City Building and inspection officials. Everything he has done has passed with flying colors. It’s been a long time since my City building reports have no comments on them! Also second to none is his work ethic-working long hours every single day-6 and 7 days a week-never stops. I would hire Wolfgang again in a heart beat. -Mike McNabb, Schufa Investments Limited
