In the fall 2007, North Harbor Diesel lost its primary yacht repair building (13,000 SF.) to a fire. Once the inspectors deemed the building to be a total loss it became imperative I find a competent General Contractor to coordinate the removal of the old building and oversee the construction of the new one as expediently as possible. Since the job was covered by my business insurance I was required to get a couple of bids from experienced and proven General Contractors. I received bids from Fisher & Sons and Anacortes Construction Services (ACS). After reviewing the proposals it was my conclusion that ACS offered more for the dollar. In retrospect, it was an excellent choice. ACS not only met my needs, but also facilitated the expansion of the building to 21.500 SF in a timely and cost efficient manner. One major concern of mine was erroneous change orders and cost overruns during construction. The only cost overruns I received were due to “unforeseen” issues and/or my requested upgrades or changes.
Overall, I would highly recommend ACS for any commercial or industrial project, but more importantly due to their professionalism and honesty. I would not hesitate to work with ACS on any future projects.
