Dear Joel,

You guys did a great job! Patience was truly a virtue on this project.

You worked extremely well with our general contractor, and even better with loca! and state officials who were new to this type of development and needed your assistance.

The 4.5 million dollars seemed like a lot to spend on environmental and demolition at first; however, it seems as if Kmart, Builders Square, Sam’s Wholesale Club and all other tenants who enjoy the Manchester Meadows development may not realize just how tough it was to make this former steel plant a useable retail site. We are particularly pleased with your efforts on the project to recycle as many of the materials as was possible.

Thank you for your professional work practices, and I look forward to working with Spirtas Company again.
