“What a pleasure it was to work with Flatiron Building Company on the Parent-Infant Center expansion and renovation.

A Real “Can-Do” Attitude

“Our history with Flatiron is limited to the University of Penn Archives project construction we have been impressed with your company’s abilities and attitude. Here are a few observations:

  • All the personnel we have dealt with are personable, communicative, and efficient – from the person who answers the phone to the principal.
  • The estimator is extremely thorough and presents cost information very clearly, even when the scope has not been completely developed.
  • The field supervisor at Archives (Rich) was very responsive to the design team and our clients, proactive in anticipating issues, well-organized, in control of the subcontractors, and a pleasure to work with.
  • Principal (Scott) remained engaged and knowledgeable about the project throughout construction – very responsive, aggressively pursuing solutions to difficult problems, thorough and professional.

The company is enthusiastic about undertaking a range of project types and sizes – a real ‘can-do’ attitude. We would not hesitate to recommend Flatiron.”
