From Our Clients...

“P.J. Hoerr is a great firm to work with. They really understand Health Care construction, Infection Control, Interim Life Safety, Patient Wayfinding, Temp Signage, the whole 9 yards. I have worked with a number of major players on some good-sized projects and they are definitely the best firm I have had the pleasure of working with. I can’t say enough good things about them. Their accounting, budgeting and change order process, are all very thorough and easily understood. Don’t want this to sound like a commercial, but we don’t even shop our projects anymore because we are so satisfied with them.”


From Our Clients...

“We are finally enjoying/reaping the benefits of all your hard work. The residents moved from their home at St. Clara’s Manor to this new home in St. Clara’s Rehab & Senior Care on Valentines Day. It truly was a heartfelt Happy Day. Thank you and all your staff, your work crews and all the TLC they put into making this dream since before 2005 a reality. My “hard hat” off to all who worked there and their friendly and polite manner towards all of us – especially me, the older lady who just had to see each stage! I will never hesitate to recommend you for anyone looking for good, timely and friendly work. Blessings to all your staff and workers. All of us couldn’t be happier!”

“I just wanted to send you a quick email regarding our project. Honestly, it's been amazing! For 2 years people have been telling me what a headache it's going to be, how many problems we'll hit, and how much more it's going to cost. It's going better than I could have ever imagined. Yes we've had changes (most of them from me!), but Colin Logue, Brad Poindexter, and all the subs I've met have been wonderful. I can't say enough good things about Colin and Brad.

Thanks for taking on our little project and giving me such great guys to work with!”
