SDV has met these challenges with stellar performance. Their team’s timely actions, attention to detail, and flexibility in the face of a very dynamic set of working conditions have exceeded all expectations. I offer an unqualified recommendation to anyone who may be considering hiring SDV Construction.” – Chad Rabon, General Operations Manager (former), New Mexico Spaceport Authority, Spaceport America

“This contractor [SDV Construction] produced an exceptional final product and final workmanship was truly outstanding. SDV management and staff could not have been more accommodating in completing the contract and contract changes requested by the Air Force. Their attitude was ‘can do’ from the first to the last day of the contract. SDV on-site staff provided excellent direction to subcontractors in all instances and was a pleasure to work with. SDV would have completed the contract weeks ahead of schedule if the Government had not requested several modifications be completed.” – Elaine Johnson, Chief, Contract Administration Section, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

“Our experience with SDV was very positive. They operated as members of the team and worked closely with our office to address any issues that arose.

Work was completed on schedule with a minimal number of change orders.” – Thomas Sayler-Brown, AIA, President, SBBL Architecture + Planning
