Testimonials

This is a very long overdue thank you to BEAR Construction. In the 7+ years we have been working together we have had a wide range of projects from a new sink installation to a 24,000 RSF full floor build out with a completely unreasonable project schedule. The service and end product has been consistent each and every time.
You are a very good partner.
Ann V. Fincham, Senior Project Manager, Wells Fargo Corporate Properties Group
I have worked with BEAR on multiple successful projects over the years and the project teams have always demonstrated exemplary project oversight and been extremely professional. In addition, BEAR values safety and quality above all else.
Jose Valdivia, General Manager, Era-Validivia Contractors, Inc.
Through my interactions with BEAR, I have come to know a firm that is truly built on impeccable client service based on honesty and integrity, and one that always brings a “can do” spirit to each project. This effort should not go unnoticed, and it is for this reason that it is with great pleasure that I recommend BEAR Construction Company.
Greg Prather, SVP, Jones Lang LaSalle
Our 200N location is a masterpiece of excellent project management, vendor coordination and working together internally (IT, facilities) and externally (subcontractors, bldg. mgmt.). The end result, our floors are spectacular! Thank you for the professionalism displayed during all phases of our rehabilitation project. You guys rock!
George Cortez, Director of Real Estate, CareerBuilder LLC
The benefit of our long-term relationship is quite evident.
We look forward to the next opportunity to work with you.
Bianca Virgili, Senior Manager, Administration at Invenergy LLC
I just wanted to thank you for taking care of this tech room lock for us. I also want to share that your team, no matter who comes, is always so professional and pleasant to work with! Thanks again.
Diane Vollmert, Office Manager, Northwestern Mutual Chicago
I wanted to convey my deepest thanks and appreciation for the outstanding job performed and the professionalism demonstrated by your staff. It was truly a pleasure working with your team.
Kimberly Swartz, MBA CPA, Executive Director, Charles E. Miller, MD & Associates
I would highly recommend BEAR Construction Company as a General Contractor for your upcoming construction project. BEAR successfully completed concurrent interior renovation projects (~86K SF) in two separate locations. Their early involvement assisted the remote project team with logistics planning, existing condition verification, and permitting. They provided an innovative technology solution to support a team working in three time zones with COVID travel restrictions. Even though the work was performed during unprecedented and challenging times, it was one of the smoothest renovation projects I have worked on.
