“…The key benefits of working with CDW from my perspective are twofold. First, CDW showed a high degree of professionalism and creativity in proposing design concepts and elements that would not normally be expected from a building contractor. We did not just get our needs met, we felt like we ended up with a unique space that had a special “Wow” factor that instilled pride in our people and smiles from our visitors.

The second benefit was the personal attention from those responsible for day-to-day work as well as the quality and timely communication of issues that arise through the process. There were very few avoidable surprises. Unforeseen items requiring alteration in plans were thoroughly communicated along with proposed solutions that respected our budget and our time frame.

Overall I was very pleased with our project outcome and feel we have a good relationship with CDW. They would be my first call for consideration on future projects.”

“Just wanted to personally thank you again for all of your hard work in building Summit Pediatrics’ new office. We are thrilled with the finished product and thank you for seeing it all the way through. From sitting around our dining room table in January through tying up the loose ends in September and October, you and your team were there from start to finish. Great job and thanks for being there for us!.”

“I met Scott about 2 years ago through a service organization that we are both members of. A year ago, I opened a new practice location and Scott helped me greatly in the design and layout of my waiting room. His blue prints and ability to communicate his vision for the space was key for the office we now enjoy.”

Mark Schumacher, CEO, Adjust to Health, Lenexa, KS

“Scott is one of the most conscientious contractors I have met. Very thorough and works very well with clients. I have recommended Scott to some clients and already he is seeing repeat business from them. It helps that Scott has a design background too which allows him to value engineer to control costs. ”

Mike Levitan, Vice President, RED Brokerage, Kansas City, MO


 

“I just wanted to drop you a quick note of thanks to you, Barbara, Mark and Dave for all your work on the build-out of our store in Lenexa. When we first started I mentioned that it was important to me to deal with someone that was experienced with franchises. Your staff went above and beyond my expectations and to say we were satisfied would be an understatement. Seldom have I dealt with a more professional and hands-on organization. Keep up the good work and I look forward to future projects with Construction DesignWorks and obviously please feel free to use me and Kelly for references in the future.”

Paul Holmes, Franchise Owner, Sports Clips, Lenexa, KS


 

“I’ve known Scott Hamele at Construction DesignWorks for nearly 5 years now, primarily in a casual setting – as our daughters play soccer together on a competitive team. When it came time to find a general contractor to assist in developing my franchise concept, the choice was easy. Knowing Scott as an individual – it was easy for me because he has a similar value base to mine, and treats people as he’d like to be treated. Simple values – not easily found in today’s world. Scott was involved from Day #1 – assisting me in site selection. He helped me see possible short-comings in certain sites, and looked for other benefits that I may have missed. It’s clear now, Scott’s experience goes way beyond simply building out your space. He was as close as my cell phone and I saw him numerous days on the project – checking to make sure that his site supervisors were “up to speed” and we were on course to open on time (if not before). As the project drew to a close, Scott aided in numerous ways – helping things go smoothly. He worked with me and the SBA to make sure everyone got their necessary cash in a prompt manner. Scott also worked hard to maintain solid relationships with both the architect and engineering group. Both came into play – helping reach our goal together. He’s been very diligent in following up and making sure “punch-list items” have been completed and that I’m happy with the end result. As Penn Station – East Coast Subs grows in Kansas City metro and beyond, I don’t doubt that Scott & Construction Design Works will be a part of that growth. He’s a valuable member on my team, and I highly recommend him as someone you should have on yours.”

Jim Wilkins, Franchise Owner, Penn Station – East Coast Subs, 135th & Antioch, Overland Park, KS


 

“I worked with Scott from Construction DesignWorks to complete a space in my basement for a commercial kitchen. Scott was very detailed, on time, neat and very thorough. After the initial consultation, Scott sent me a plan drawing and detailed scope of work. It was over a month before I was ready to move forward. Scott never pushed me to get started before I was ready. There were no surprises and no ‘add-ons’ to the invoice. He asked for my input during the construction to make sure I understood his process and that I was happy with each step. I would definitely use Scott again and recommend him! ”

Shari Weyrauch, Smart Cookies, Overland Park, KS

“Scott Hamele was invaluable in helping us design our office space. He came up with some great ideas that we never would have thought of. He also saved us thousands in his oversight of the contractors as he found way to accomplish things less expensively than the contractor would have otherwise done them. We easily recouped his fees from these savings! One of the more creative things Scott same up with was to eliminate the need for a utility closet in our break room (we needed the extra file space) and had the units placed in the ceiling. I would strongly recommend Scott and his firm to anyone for his design/build work…..and I have!”

P. Shaun McDuffee, North Star Financial, Austin, TX

“I wanted to put in words my thanks for everything Scott and his company has done at our home. When Lisa and I moved, we felt our new home had just about everything we wanted except for a bar area to entertain friends and family. I must say, Scott nailed it! As you are aware; when you start one project it has a tendency to grow and lead into other areas of the home. Again I appreciate Scott’s efforts, not only building our bar from a storage room, but also knocking out the “punch list” items. It’s tough when you see someone good with tools not to think; where else in my home could I get this guy to work on? ”

Stephen Spoonhour,  Leawood, KS


 

“At the beginning of 2008 I leased office space from Twin Oaks Ventures. The space I rented was to be used as a medical facility and needed some of the rooms converted, resized and reduced plus there were other minor changes which needed to be made before we could begin treating patients. The contracts and agreement were signed. Construction DesignWorks was to complete the necessary changes in time for us to take possession and begin business the following month. CDW and completed the project while paying careful attention to detail and with time to spare. I would highly recommend Construction DesignWorks for large and/or small construction projects. CDW is reliable, reasonably priced and does quality work.”
