I have worked with many contractors throughout my career and have found none that compares to Forish Construction.  From the owner to the laborers, they have performed an outstanding job for the Town of Deerfield.

On behalf of Westfield Grinding Wheel Company our sincere thanks for a job well done. The entire project ran smoothly thanks to Forish’s outstanding organization and was finished on time and within budget.

Because this job required extensive electrical work requiring careful coordination with the Westfield Gas & Electric, the potential for disruptions in our on going manufacturing operation was pretty high. I was happy to report that there were absolutely none.

We would be pleased to recommend Forish to any prospective customer.

Very truly yours, Edward S. Sauers, President & CEO

Jeff & Jim,

I wanted to thank you both for your excellent project management and supervision on the first phase of the Morrill II Acid Neutralization Project!

You and your subs were successful at bringing in Phase One of the Project… on time. Our project has not disrupted the … research… while accomplishing a very difficult excavation and plumbing and mechanical project.

We clearly have an excellent team and I find it a pleasure to work with you both and am looking forward to the next phases of the project with confidence.

If we had another project, of a similar nature in Massachusetts, we would utilize Forish Construction.

Otto Reidl, Vice President, Halle Corporation

Project was difficult to execute due to maintaining full use of the existing building, experiencing very intense winter conditions, and working with a non-profit that self performed some scopes of work with volunteers.  Forish did a good job of working through these issues.

Douglas Emerson, Director of Facilities, Pioneer Valley Christian Academy

We have worked successfully with Forish Construction on other projects.  They perform with great professionalism and attention to detail. They fully understand our need to continue business operations during construction and work with us very well in making sure we are only impacted when needed.

Christine Davidson, Vice President, J. Dirats & Co.

Forish was sensitive and responsive to issues that arose due to the building being open to the public during construction.  We are satisfied with their workmanship and performance, and pleased with the outcome of the project.
