“Denise Chevalier was an integral part of our project’s success. Just as it’s important to choose the right general contractor, architect and financing partners, having the right project manager increases the likelihood of completing a project successfully.
Denise has remarkable organizational skills that prevented even the smallest details from falling through the cracks. Her long history with grocery co-ops was an added benefit because she not only could assist with the construction aspect of the project, but she also had a clear understanding of the business that we needed to continue to run successfully throughout the project. We easily recouped the cost of our investment in project management through our ability to stay on time and on budget, while avoiding costly omissions and errors with Denise’s help.”
