"I'm sending this letter as a personal thank you for over 10 years of excellent service to Montgomery County. The success of your projects is well known by the county and can be directly linked to your company's relationship with county employees, subcontractors, and your own employees. Some of my own personal highlights and projects I have gotten some credit for include the County Executive's Offices, the offices of Fire and Rescue, Falls Grove Liquor store and the Avery Road HHS facility to name a few of many, many projects. My success and the success of these and other projects were principally due to the outstanding teamwork and overall management by your company. . . One of the strengths of your company has always been on site supervision and the daily, direct communication and cooperation that is provided."

"In 2007 CDCI is currently wrapping up about $3M in high profile contract services. CDCI is an extremely competent company and has always done exceptional work for us.
The College has experienced a timely completion of many complicated mechanical and construction projects managed by CDCI.
The level of supervision consistently meets my often too high expectations. CDCI's response and follow-up to construction issues is professional and thorough.
In summary, CDCI is more than an outstanding Design/Build firm. This company is a collection of resourceful and enthusiastic individuals that posses both specialized expertise and broad construction knowledge that translates into an action plan that will benefit the client. The service provided by CDCI is considered a high-value asset to this College; I cannot recommend CDCI more heartily."

"I mention the courtroom construction projects, not to deter from all the other successful construction projects CDCI has performed, but to place a greater emphasis on the contractor's ability to coordinate multiple subcontractors, work in occupied and sensitive areas - all while providing a high quality workmanship, timely and within specified cost quotes. The phasing plan developed with CDCI for renovations of various construction areas, coupled with close daily communication with staff, minimized program disruptions . . . As the Court Administrator addressing many projects for the court, I have found everyone in CDCI to be professional, responsive, and highly sensitive to the needs of their customers. Management is dedicated to meeting time lines, budget and quality control goals. CDCI's craftsmen have made significant contributions to the Judicial Center, Redbrick Courthouse and more recently the Grey Courthouse. I give CDCI my strongest endorsement as a company that incorporates professionalism, skill, integrity and a corporate culture of customer care into its daily business functions."

"I have been able to heavily rely on CDCI, Inc. for their architectural and engineering services for these lockups. This is a highly specialized requirement for which they have previous experience. This makes working with this vendor much easier as they have knowledge of the Holding Facility Accreditation Standards that we must comply with.
The aggressive manner in which CDCI, Inc. solicits estimates and negotiates with their subcontractors helps the county get the most reasonable price for the project.
I have been very pleased with CDCI, Inc. staff. Their construction crew is multi-talented and is proficient in their assigned tasks.
Over the years I have worked with many vendors; however CDCI, Inc. is the only general contractor that the Sheriff's Office wants to handle our projects. They are reliable, reasonable, pay great attention to detail, and consistently produce an excellent finished product for our office."
Jo Ann Ricchiuti, ASC

"CDCI has been very successful in the past several years helping Montgomery County in Maryland, in designing and constructing its Capital Improvements Projects.
Qualities that CDCI presented to this County included: responsiveness, caring, attentive to projects, cooperation with project managers and user agencies to achieve desired goals, understanding and being mindful of project budget and time limitations, going beyond contract requirements to achieve deadlines even when it required after hour work, among other qualities that makes me very comfortable to highly recommend them for similar type of work for any organization or government agency."

"The communication and working relationship among CDCI, Inc. the County Project Manager and laboratory personnel were excellent. I found CDCI, Inc. to be extremely responsive to our needs and concerns during the construction phase and after the project was completed. The project was completed by the deadline set by the county. CDCI, Inc. did an excellent job of constructing this laboratory. Personnel from forensic laboratories, which are moving into DNA analysis, have visited our laboratory for ideas on how they should set up their facility. Experienced DNA analysts have complimented not only the quality of our laboratory, but also its design."
