We have the greatest admiration for your company and employees. It is with pleasure that I can give you a reference with the highest regard.
Larry Allen

Your reputation in the stores, as well as in this construction department is without match. Many times over the years we have worked on projects that had very tight budgets and extremely aggressive schedules. These issues didn't cause your organization to skip a beat.
Steve Aultman
Senior Project Manager
Without exception, your firm has provided quality work and met very aggressive time schedules. Your most difficult task was the multi-million dollar improvement of seven stores in five cities simultaneously. We could not have been more satisfied with the outcome of each of the projects.
Tom McLaughlin
Director of Construction
"Lipps & Son were invaluable in their help and guidance with the construction details of our store. They were always friendly and did an immaculate  job. When it's time to open another store, Lipps and Son will be the first call we make to help us get started. Chuck is always doing the 'right thing'; you never hear him say it's not in the contract. He just gets it done."
