Client Testimonials

We work with many great clients, architects and subcontractors. Here are some good things they are saying about our relationship with them.

I have had the pleasure of working with the Skyward Construction Team on several very challenging projects. Skyward was instrumental in keeping the construction costs of our projects within the allotted budget as well as developing a reasonable schedule that met the needs of the school district. It is without hesitation that I would recommend Skyward construction to others and I look forward to opportunities to work with them again in the future.

Joe Steinbrenner – Facilities Director – Washougal School District

Skyward staff worked closely with our staff and were able to work around any specific issues we had.
They also had recommendations that met our needs to ensure that the budget and schedule were met. I would be happy to work with Skyward Construction, Inc. again in the future.

Nancy Hall – Director of Business – Woodburn Schools

Skyward Construction’s collaborative efforts with the A/E team and great communication with me
helped the project be successful. I highly recommend Skyward Construction, Inc.

Kelley Wilson – Project Manager – Construction Services Group/ESD

Skyward brought the teamwork, skill, transparency, and accountability needed and proved able to adapt to a variety of challenges along the way. I believe Skyward can complete any future projects that are
challenging and complex and do so successfully.

Skyward performed professionally on all levels – Communication with a large project team, high construction quality/standards and meeting project schedules on time.

Webster Wilson, AIA – Webster Wilson Architect

Typical of summer season school projects, the project had to be substantially complete
prior to the start of the pending school year. Skyward managed 5 different sites and was able
to complete the projects on time. We look forward to working with Skyward Construction again and recommend them for any project you need their services on.

Doug Pruitt – Principal – BBL Architects

Skyward’s on-site and off-site management is of extraordinary value. They know the process
and instinctively know the priorities. Their “we are a team” approach immensely helps PPS
manage our projects. This tact is greatly appreciated.

From the perspective as the person responsible for the design, Skyward was always
well organized from the day they started the project. We are convinced this effort led to the timely completion and within budgeted costs.

“The success of any construction project depends in large measure on the team and the team’s ability to communicate and work collaboratively.  We knew going into the project, based on past experiences with Skyward, that the management team and construction crews were seasoned professionals.  Based on their performance the project finished on time and was ready for the new students returning.  Their service to PPS was excellent.”

The project, being a renovation of a 1940’s building, provided some interesting and challenging conditions that had to be dealt with during the course of construction. Each time, the design team was able to work with Skyward Construction to come up with a quick and cost effective solution so that we could keep the construction progress moving forward. Through all of the challenges that the project presented, Skyward Construction was able to keep the project on track with regards to timing and schedules.”
