PROJECT PROFILES

“It was evident to the Zoo staff that client satisfaction was Thomas & Marker’s ultimate goal. The honest communication, the commitment of time and resources, and the project management expertise were manifested in a manner that was equally professional, enthusiastic, confidence-building, and results-oriented!”
Terri M. Kepes, Associate Zoo Director, Columbus Zoo & Aquarium
“T&MCC’s firm-but-fair approach, ‘can-do’ attitude, and facilitation of communication between all team members was exemplary, and was crucial in the success of these projects. Their awareness of schedule and budget from a contractor’s perspective informed many impactful decisions.”
Dennis M. Check, President, Hasenstab Architects (Grizzly Ridge Exhibit)
“Your attention to detail, extraordinary management of information and communication finesse made what could have been an arduous and exasperating project a standard for construction management. What I found truly noteworthy was how your experienced staff immediately recognized the various idiosyncrasies with zoological exhibit design and were able to respond in a highly effective way to the changes that are inherent in this type of work – especially regarding animal containment issues.”
