Contractors on this project

The Korte Company was the general contractor on this site. A construction firm over forty years of age and with more than 1,500 projects under it’s belt, Korte was a pleasure to work with. Like Damon Mechanical, Korte is Design/Build oriented, giving us a great working relationship as we moved toward completion of this project with the other subcontractors.

JSA Architects has built its reputation with over 70 years of engineering expirience. Creating engineering solutions for the BEQ project was no simple task, but JSA met the challenge without difficulty.

Enterprise Electric, with over 75 years of service, Enterprise Electric was very capable in the wiring for this project. They kept their work on schedule so that we had lighting and power to work through the 16 months of construction. Having power ready when the HVAC systems were ready was also a great help.
