I was at the Smith Center a week before Christmas and it is absolutely stunning.  The stone work throughout the interior is truly spectacular.

 555 California St. ADA Upgrades

 I wanted to take a minute to let you know how happy I am with the performance of Superior Tile on this long and trying project.  The quality of your work and the professionalism of your team is greatly appreciated and should be recognized.  The cut-in of the granite ADA striping on the exterior stairs, the correction of the Sidley Austin lobby on the 20th floor and the leveling of the Cal St ADA entrance were all extremely precise and difficult projects that your team completed to near perfection.  Your stonework is some of the best work I’ve seen in my 20 yrs of contracting experience (including Chicago, NYC and SF).  Special recognition should be given to the following members of your team:  Gerry – Hands down, the best stone mason west of the Mississippi and the principal reason for the success of these projects. Thank you for your attention to design intent, quality of work and providing a finished product that exceeds expectations.  Tim – Extremely accommodating and honest. Thank you for being a voice reason (when needed) and for following through on your commitments to manpower & scheduling.  Tom – From start to finish you have provided accurate and fair pricing, worked with us to vet out the most optimal solutions given our budget constraints and have shown extreme patience throughout the process. Thank you for your help and partnership in seeing this project through to completion.

I greatly appreciate the efforts and patience of the entire Superior team throughout this project.

5440 Patrick Henry

I wanted to reach out to you and Superior Tile and pass our clients comments about the tile work at 5440 Patrick Henry.  The client was extremely impressed with the quality of work and attention to detail.  The job looks great!  The representative form D.E.S. Architecture said it was one of the best tile installs he had ever seen.  They are a pretty big architecture firm and I am sure he has seen a lot of tile installs so for him to say that it means a lot.

I thought it looked pretty darn good, but when they made those comments I looked even harder to see if there was anything out of place.  I couldn’t find anything.  It really does look perfect!  Thank your crew and Danny Wilcox for us.  We are only as good as our subcontractors and when you do your job well it makes us look good.  Keep up the good work.

First  I would like to thank all of you for stepping up and getting this entry area done for the project. Specifically want to let you know that Tim Allen did an outstanding job working under extremely difficult conditions. Working on Easter Sunday was huge and appreciated. I know this was very painful to get through but I will say that the last impression stands and your group did outstanding job on this project! Thanks again and hope to work with you all on the next project!

Mr. Conner:

We have not met but my name is Mike Fraley and I manage field operations for BCCI.  As you may know, we are in the final stages of a very high profile and difficult project.  BCCI and Superior Tile have just finished the most extensive remodeling project in 100 years at the Pacific Union Club at the top of California Street.  As you might imagine, the logistics were very challenging as was the constantly changing scope and schedule.

I wanted to take a moment to thank your entire team on the level of professionalism and quality that your firm provided to our project.  I know that there were extreme staffing challenges throughout the project and Tim Walker and Fred Steed worked with us to provide the staff needed to complete this very important project.

Please accept BCCI’s sincere gratitude on a job well done.

Hope to see Superior on the next project.

Thanks again!

Just wanted to say thank you for your man Steve’s above and beyond effort on the terrazzo floor out at Saint Ignatius college preparatory school>  His dedication and professionalism really shows not only on the quality of his work but the way he stayed late to insure that Plant would meet the schedule.  Thanks again and I look forward to working with you again.

I just wanted to say what a great job your guys did on Whole Cakes.  Like normal your guys were fast, clean, and professional. Thanks again for another great job. I will be sure to pass this along to the rest of the PM’s in the office.

I just wanted to take a moment to let you guys know that your work out here at Building C has been exemplary. All the guys from the BB/CC Affordable team have nothing but the highest praise for what you are producing out here. Tory gave you guys “two raging thumbs up”. Everything from your attention to detail on the office side to your field install crews, everything out here has been excellent. Thanks for making a difficult job a little easier for us.

Looking forward to continued success on the Market Rate tower.
