What is a big project or accomplishment for your company?
To date, I am most proud of our first large commercial project. As a new company we were anxious, but up to the task of working on a downtown historical building in Pensacola for a high-profile client. We completed multiple exterior and interior glass walls, shower enclosure and mirror, under tight deadlines while delivering the project on-time and at budget to a very satisfied client.
