  • “The efforts were led with consistent feedback, planning and precise execution day by day, making a difficult task painless and smooth. The install team was very professional, well trained and knowledgeable. They answered any questions we had and ensured a safe and swift installation, faster than anticipated. They were accommodating for last minute field decisions and provided assistance wherever needed. All of the Sims team members have proven to be true construction professionals and thus I will continue to reach out on future projects.”
