WHAT OUR CUSTOMER SAY

Ms. Veronica A. McDermott, Ph.D.
Superintendent of Schools / Patchogue-Medford School District

- Patchogue–Medford High School

“I have worked closely with this firm for three years on a school construction project in excess of $149M. I brought Park East Construction Corp. in as construction managers after working with another construction management company. The difference was dramatic and immediate. Park East Construction Corp. operates to please the client. They are sensitive and responsive to district and building needs. They have provided excellent counsel and skillful project management. If they say something will get done, it does get done – frequently way ahead of schedule.”

Dr. Lee Chapman
Deputy Superintendent / Baldwin Public Schools

- Baldwin Public Schools

The Baldwin Union Free School District has utilized the services of Park East Construction Management Company to coordinate and supervise a $8,7000,000 middle school building addition and renovation project. Park East was hired based on the construction knowledge, expertise, and references they provided to our Board and Administration.

Mr. Kevin S. Carpenter
Operations of Facilities Administrator / Commack Union Free School District

- Commack Union Free School District

I would highly recommend the Park East Construction Corporation for any project they were to seek. Over the past three years, Park East Construction Corp. has provided, and will continue to provide, construction management for a large capital improvement project, with a budget of just under one hundred million dollars, for the Commack School District. The work that has been completed at each school is of top quality. This accomplishment is being done while keeping within budget guidelines, as well as narrow timeline completion schedules. The most important element of the project thus far, is the fact that the buildings have continued to operate during the construction.

Mr. Kenneth Weil
Library Director / South Huntington Public Library

- South Huntington Public Library

Park East Construction Corp. played a major role in containing costs, minimizing delays and ensuring that the facility was built in accordance with the construction documents. To a large extent I credit your hands on approach to the success of our project. You were personally involved every step of the way. Not only did Park East Construction Corp. live up to the Library’s expectations from the planning stages right through to the opening of the building, but you continue to provide assistance a year after the building was completed.

Mr. Susan K. Kern
Library Director / Uniondale Public Library

- Uniondale Public Library

Throughout the project, when problems arose, Park East Construction Corp. provided solutions and kept the work progressing. I cannot thank all of you enough for your capable and steadfast assistance under some very difficult circumstances.

Mrs. Judith Lockman
Library Director / Syosset Public Library

- Syosset Public Library

I write this letter in praise and recommendation of Park East Construction, Corporation, because their guidance made our project a success. Syosset school district residents approved a $13,000,000 library expansion and renovation bond issue in June, 2003. I sought the services of Park East Construction shortly after the project had been publicly bid for a second time. In July, 2005, Park East Construction brought their experience, expertise, honesty, and energy to Syosset, and literally saved the project. Park East Construction coordinated and supervised the addition of two floors and a theater, creating the largest library building in Nassau County. Project Superintendent Gary Gonzalez was onsite six days a week, and on call twenty-four hours a day. Park East Construction made sure that the four prime contractors stayed on schedule and maintained high standards of workmanship.

Karen J. West
Director of Administration / National Center for Disability Services

The National Center for Disability Services and the Henry Viscardi School

Delivering a high quality end result was particularly difficult due to the details involved in merging construction, technology design and installation of state of the art technology for adults and children with multiple physical disabilities. Since many unique details were required, your thorough familiarity with ADA and creative problem solving were pivotal to the success of these projects... ...On behalf of the Center, and especially the clients and children we serve, I thank you for the time, patience, professionalism, guidance and vision you brought to this project and our organization. We look forward to working with Park East Construction Corp. on our next project.

Mr. Kenneth Lygren
Board of Commisioners - Chairman / Huntington Manor Fire District

- Huntington Manor Fire District

As a Fire District working with tax payers money, and having to accept low bids, all too often the problems incurred are greater than the savings. Your firm ensured that was not the case. The deadlines were met, budgeted amounts held firm, and your detailed follow-ups have made this project a pleasure.

Mr. William Theis
Chairman, Board of Fire Commisioners / Terryville Fire District

Terryville Fire District

The manner in which your firm conducted the planning, bidding, construction and reporting phases of the projects, was carried out with the professionalism worthy of the reputation which preceded your being selected for our projects. Coordination of the multiple contractors for the two projects of building a new sub-station and a difficult addition / renovation to our headquarters building was a very complicated task which you and your field supervision performed with complete understanding and concern for the needs of the Terryville Fire District.”

Karen Quigley
Director of Facilities/Capital Projects / Marymount Manhattan College

Marymount Manhattan College

We certainly would consider working with Park East Construction on future projects at Marymount Manhattan College and would highly recommend Park East Construction as a General Contractor and/or Construction Manager for other clients. Thanks again for an outstanding job and we look forward to doing business with you in the future.

Judson R. Shaver, Ph. D.
President / Marymount Manhattan College

Marymount Manhattan College

The College’s projects were complex and involved the coordination of substantial renovations on several floors. Park East Construction managed all of this work within the very tight timeframes necessitated by our having to work around our academic calendar. Park East Construction’s staff was professional, responsive to the College’s schedule and priorities, and worked well with our Facilities Department. Park East Construction also responded quickly and adeptly to the surprises that necessarily arise with projects in older buildings such as ours. I strongly recommend Park East Construction, which the College would not hesitate to use on future projects.

William H. Johnson, Ed. D.
Superintendent Of School / Rockville Centre Union Free School District

Over the last three years, we have worked closely with Park East Construction who was selected as our construction manager. We have found the staff assigned to our school district to be very knowledgeable, competent and responsive to our needs.  ...

Mr. Michael Quigley
Assistant Superintendent for Finance and Administrative Services / Kings Park Central School District

- Kings Park Central School District

For a while it was scary because we had so many areas of the building under construction at one time. The building was actually ripped apart. This is my first time through this, but we have an experience Construction Manager and an experienced Architect, which helped.

Kings Park HS Main Entrance
Mr. Thomas Fasano
Principal / Kings Park High School

- Kings Park Central School District

The coordination between the Construction Manager, the General Contractor and the Kings Park High School staff has been outstanding and that has allowed the projects to progress with minor interference with the daily routine at the high school. You can’t dormer your house without being slightly inconvenienced, but this project has caused minimal interruption or distraction to the educational process, which has been my main concern.

Mr. Joe C. Dragone
Deputy Superintendent / Harborfields Central School District

- Harborfields Central School District

I always feel whenever I deal with any one of you that I am the only client with whom you are involved despite the fact that it is obvious that you are a successful and thriving firm with many clients. The advice you have provided to us, your leadership in getting the job done on time, your skill in dealing with contractors who do not necessarily have the best interests of the school district or even their own workers or sub-contractors in mind, your patience in dealing with architects and engineers, your ability to deal with questions from members of our board of education in public meetings and concerns of our principals in provide meetings have all be outstanding.
