“Excellent Contractor!! We would definitely hire again!!!

Great Design/Build firm. NOLA project was completed approximately 60 days ahead of schedule and with a total cost savings of 2 million dollars. Project was extremely difficult due to Hurricane Katrina’s effects on work force and material. Korte was extremely cooperative considering that the construction was completed when the facility was occupied and operational.”

Korte's coordination/management of local utility companies, Postal Operations, subcontractors, and staff enabled the project to be completed 60 days ahead of schedule and under budget.

They are truly a "Team Player"

Church of Our Lady of the Snows — Belleville, IL

"I'd say it's a great experience because had it not been a good experience, I would have been the first one to say 'I don't even want them on the grounds' . . . . I'm glad when they do get the contract because I know what I'm going to get.

Before decisions were really made where they would inform the subs of decisions or talk with the architect, they would always talk with me first, or the owner first, and find out, 'Do you agree with this?  Or would you like to see this handled in a different way?  Are you pleased?' and they were always wanting to make sure that [we] were pleased with what they produced.

I feel a bit at ease knowing that I have this reassurance from my general contractor that the way the concrete is being poured, the slump test, the air test and everything, is all being followed because he is reviewing these reports.  I feel comfortable that they've got an expert in that field, and an expert not only in concrete, but in many other areas, and that gives me a bit of reassurance.

Well, we had a problem that arose with the church here . . . with one of the subcontractors on the floor.  It did go to arbitration, which the contract stated, and Korte was with us all the way through the arbitration.  I mean they were there every day, and I'm sure that really dug into Korte's profit on this project, but yet we never knew about that.  They were with us and wanted to make sure that we were satisfied, and even today one of the project managers comes in, looks around and wants to make sure that we are satisfied with everything.

I feel they can deliver a very good quality . . . here in the church we had some problems that came up with the subcontractors maybe not following through exactly.  Korte had no problem at all with telling those people to tear down and start over.  Even though it would have meant a delay of a day or two in opening from their target schedule, they had no problem in setting that day back to give you the quality that you wanted.

They were always interested in the safety of their workers.  Every week there was a safety meeting, an in-service training for all the workers no matter what they were doing, there was always time after lunch for the in-service training.

I've seen ladders that the foreman came by and didn't think were safe, and he immediately just cut 'em up so that they couldn't be used.  Yes, extremely safe.  They would not let any of us on the job--even the owners--without a hardhat, and that's how they were concerned for our safety.

The job site was always clean, the trailers were always clean, nothing left around--the area was always policed and cleaned up.

So they would work with us in making sure that they could coordinate their safety fencing and anything that would need be if we needed to use it for a parking lot or something like that.  So it was always a safe site.

All I'd have to do is pick up the phone, call Korte, and they would send that special team out that comes and looks at the problem to see what it is, evaluate whose responsibility it might be in the trades, and took care of it.  In fact it got to be to the point that I'd be calling up and they would never say, 'Well, I'm sorry, that's out of warranty' or 'That's not our responsibility anymore.'  They were always there.

We had weekly meetings with all the subcontractors . . . we continued with that all the way through the project.  We had weekly meetings, we knew exactly what was taking place.  The superintendent worked very close with all the subcontractors.  The owner was always informed, knew exactly what was going on.  There were no changes made without the owner's knowledge; everything took place very well.

They brought value in their knowledge of building, their knowledge of construction in this area, the knowledge of the trades, the knowledge of the subs that were available that they thought could deliver the quality that they wanted to put into the project.  That's extremely valuable--just their own team.

I think we definitely received the value.  If we didn't receive the value, I guess it would be our fault for not asking for it or demanding it, because they were always there.  And the value was there, there was nothing we had to demand from Korte.  They were always willing to go ahead and give us what we needed."

 — Brother Paul Hoemeke

Chemical and Biological Warfare Detection Facility — Crane, IN

"Outstanding, both the design and construction portions have exceeded the requirements of the customer and have provided for a world class facility.

— Brent Robertson, Project Manager, NAVFAC

American Prepared Foods Facility Modernization — Oklahoma City, OK

"It is said that a customer’s true satisfaction is ultimately demonstrated if and when a customer returns and purchases additional goods or services from a company. Our experience was enjoyable, and we will continue to contract with The Korte Company on any future construction projects in the future."

— Ray Espinosa, Project Manager, American Foods Group
