We have worked on some major projects with Duran & Venables over the years. With each project, they deliver outstanding workmanship, quality service, and have a team of dedicated people who I am proud to be associated with. Two of our more recent projects included track and field improvements at Laney College and College of Alameda. Both involved comprehensive construction processes that required the expertise of many people, including Duran & Venables, who were major contributors to the success of these projects.
My sincere thanks and admiration to your employees who worked on our downtown paving project. During the project, I received many compliments on how courteous all your employees were to the residents and business owner. As an inspector, it is very important to have full cooperation by everyone involved when working on such a project. My expectations exceeded 100 percent.
A special thanks to Duran & Venables for doing a superb job on the drive aisle paving at the Clayton Valley Shopping Center in Concord. Duran & Venables met the five-day schedule and performed the work professionally and with a spirit of cooperation. Again, thank you for your excellent work and meeting a difficult schedule.
Duran Venables General Engineering Contractors did a great job at 990 Saratoga Ave in San Jose today performing the Select Asphalt Repairs Project for Pacific Hospitality, Inc. The owner stopped by the job site this morning at about 11am, and when I said “Duran Venables is doing a good job”, he turned and replied “Their doing a great job!” The owner was very pleased with the work, and that we had the Drive-Thru Aisle opened and operational by 11am. And, there were many customers coming/driving in starting right at 11am. So, thank you! I must say it is always a pleasure to watch a team of experts perform their work. With Mike Hinojosa orchestrating the entire project and team, and Mike Valdez providing direct leadership and example to the team, the Duran Venables Team hit another home-run! They make it look easy, and we all know it’s not. It’s hard work. The Duran Venables Team does their work with passion for doing it safely, and with a high degree of quality and integrity (which includes stellar clean-up at the end of the job). And, a special thank you to Danny for bringing this project to fruition the morning after a major storm. It was important to the owner that the work got done as soon as possible. Please give our/S+B Consulting appreciation to Danny Duran, Mike Hinojosa, Mike Valdez, and the entire Duran Venables Team for another job well done! We enjoy working with you! Go Team!!!
I want to say A BIG THANK YOU to the crew that was at The Village today, they were extremely helpful with two sensitive situations (BCS staff & The Press/LASD Board) we had to address at the site today. They went beyond the call of duty to make sure the site was ready for the Press and the LASD Board.
You are very fortunate to have employees that give 110%.
I have worked on a number of major projects with Duran & Venables over recent years. The reason that our relationship continues is that they represent the type of good, honest, hard working contractor that we want on our team. They take great pride in their work and make it a point to be very aware of what is important to their customers. In addition, Duran & Venables' project managers and field staff communicate well with our construction managers. From an owner's perspective, this is greatly valued. I look forward to working successfully with Duran & Venables on many more projects for years to come.
