“Throughout the construction phase of our elementary school projects, we enjoyed a wonderful partnership with A.P. Construction. We were thoroughly impressed by the quality of their work and by the professionalism of their project managers who worked closely with our architects and with school and district personnel. They understood the unique responsibilities associated with building projects on active school sites. I would wholeheartedly endorse A.P. Construction for any school building projects.”
