We have used Sussner Construction for multiple construction projects at Sanford Canby Medical Center over the years. They have been the general contractor for our projects which have included a major

Clinic expansion, Wellness Center building and our most recent Emergency Department and Outreach Services expansion.

The Emergency Department and Outreach Services expansion project was approximately 3,800 square foot addition and 1,500 square feet of remodel space. The project consisted of a conventional footing and foundation system with structural steel framework. The interior was a slab on grade, metal stud wall framing, and a new air handler on the roof. The project started in May of 2015 and finished in February of 2016. There were only 6 change orders including the extras that we had added once the project started.

We have used a project manager through our architect firm and tried to run the projects ourselves in the past. I can say that with this last project with Travis, it was the first time in the 25 years that I have been in this position that we had finished a project on the date that it was original scheduled to finish, even with all the extras we added after the start of the project it was finished to the date on time.

Chris, Travis, and the construction team have worked closely with our architects, sub-contractors, and me to coordinate each construction project with professionalism and expertise; they were excellent at communication during all the construction projects. Any time I have questions or concerns they responded to them and resolve them as quickly as possible. With their broad experience in construction their recommendations and input have been very valuable.

I was very impressed with their crew during construction with their knowledge of infection control guidelines and safety steps they had taken during the projects.

All of our projects have been completed meeting budget goals and the quality of construction is their top priority. I highly recommend Sussner Construction for any building project that you need a contractor that you can trust and build a long lasting friendship with.
