"Richard Johnson, AIA, has stayed with this project from beginning to
end on a daily basis if necessary. He has always been
available when needed and has come to the job site on
very short notice. His hands on approach has helped to
make the difficult phase construction process go
smoothly. He has a good relationship with the four
prime contractors who are building the facility, and
our weekly jobsite meetings have resulted in good
coordination and quick resolution of the issues that
arise. He always seems to be able to work out problems
without getting upset and has a calming effect on
potentially volatile people.
Each step of the way on this project was carefully considered and adequate accommodations were made for our operation. I am confident that everyone on our staff would highly recommend Richard Johnson for any project, but especially for a project requiring 'business as usual' during construction. I, certainly, would welcome the opportunity to work with Richard and The East Group again."
Kay Wilkerson, Director of Student Health Services
"It is my pleasure to recommend The East Group to anyone interested. The East Group has consulted for us on several projects ranging from engineering design problems, facility layout, and labor efficiency. As is the case in most organizations, the amount of work there is to do here is often more than the current manpower resources can handle. The East Group is a great asset in getting us through these situations as well as lending a hand during normal times. They have become an extension of Grady-White - another department to call on whenever needed. The East Group is a rock solid source of professional engineering expertise."
Mark Doggett, Vice President of Manufacturing
"The transfer of real estate is an extremely time sensitive business. It is a pleasure to work with a survey firm that understands this and is able to respond with professionalism and timeliness.

Robert Rafson, P.E., Partner

Accordingly, it is my distinct pleasure to offer this letter of reference. Your endeavors are decidedly evident in the work to date at the Hospital. From initial design through the ongoing construction, both the onsite team members and those additional persons supporting the onsite effort have exhibited technical expertise and professional behavior exemplary of the highest standards set by the industry. More firms should be driven to emulate your work."
