Our company is built upon a rich history of family relationships: the fathers of our Principals, James Fendt and Michael Nikolai, worked together in the 1950s and 1960s. The rapport established many years ago continues today and extends well beyond business, making for a powerful working relationship between our Principals and an extremely stable work environment for our employees.
We strive to build something of value every day, with our entire team focused on building strong relationships and quality projects. While we work continually to find new clients, our first priority has always been to strengthen existing client relationships. As reflected in our list of projects, the greater majority of our business has come from repeat clientele. We ensure that our clients always feel the high degree of personalized service we offer them.
