"When embarking on the Cleveland Public Theatre's capital project, I knew that we needed help to undertake our renovation project. As a relatively small non-profit, our staff is often stretched to the limit. Additionally we knew that our expertise in construction, building codes, and the overall design process was limited. We engaged The Project Group in order to guide us through this process and to assist us in driving the project in a way that is thoughtful and best serves the short term needs and long term vision of the organization. The Project Group has truly exceeded our expectations. They have helped us avoid some serious mistakes and have helped us take advantage of unexpected opportunities.  They have been a valuable addition to our team as we have tackled the various planning, financial and construction aspects of our project.  We would highly recommend The Project Group for this type of an assignment."

"The Project Group offers expertise and knowledge that few of us undertaking a large scale construction project have.  It is a comfortable feeling knowing that our organization had solid advice about what we should and shouldn't expect and how to evaluate costs.  In our case, we were able to assure the donors who made our project possible that we didn't build too much or too little and that their resources were used 'responsibly'."

The Cleveland Foodbank

The Project Group was engaged by Hiram College to assist us with our Coleman Sports Recreation and Fitness Center.  This is the largest project we’ve done at Hiram in recent memory.  They did a superb job for us.  The project is on time, on budget, and with the kind of quality that we were anticipating.  Hiring The Project Group were one of the best decisions we made in this project.”

"Beginning in 2004, The Krill Company served as the general contractor on the $7.0 million Ursuline College Student Residence Hall project. The Project Group served as project manager on this project. We worked very closely with this firm during the entire construction process.

We would be pleased to work with them in this capacity on future projects, and recommend them without hesitation to others."

The responsiveness of The Project Group I experienced helped me to manage stress effectively and enabled me to make many difficult and complex decisions I encountered throughout the project."

"As we break ground for our new municipal courthouse, I want to take the opportunity to thank you and commend you for the remarkable job you've done for us.  Your help in guiding us through the "virgin territory" of municipal design build has been invaluable.  Frankly, I don't know how we would have done it without you.  The entire staff at The Project Group has been a pleasure to work with, and your personal attention to our project is greatly appreciated.  I would welcome the opportunity to recommend The Project Group to any potential clients."

David Anderson, Mayor

“As Council’s consultants on the Cleveland Browns Stadium and the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport Expansion, The Project Group has been of great assistance to the City Council, in its process of exercising legislative oversight.  These, the largest capital projects in the City’s history, have required more than simple legislative approval — they have required a detailed understanding and continued vigilance on the part of Council — in order that they adhere to schedule, budget, quality and EEO requirements, serving the best interests of the citizens of the City of Cleveland.  To this end, The Project Group has ably and successfully served as an extension of the Council’s authority and staff.”

Jay Westbrook, Chairman
Cleveland City Council Aviation & Transportation Committee

"I used The Project Group for a difficult condominium conversion project.  Using their services helped me get the project approved and was extremely useful in making sure the loan disbursements were handled properly.  Also, I firmly believe The Project Group added value to my borrower helping them get a firmer grasp of the condo conversion and certainly in presenting it to the bank in a manner that could be understood by the lender."

Norman G. Lange, Vice President
Commercial Banking at Provident Bank

"The Project Group provides a valuable service to the Cleveland City Council.  As Council’s consultants, they help to ensure that the City obtains value, and that budget, schedule and EEO requirements are met on large capital projects.  The Project Group has also been of great assistance to Council on the creation, monitoring and enforcement of the Fannie M. Lewis City Residency Law – making certain that Cleveland residents are employed on City-funded construction projects."

Frank Jackson, President
Cleveland City Council

"I just want to take this opportunity to thank The Project Group for their assistance and expertise. I greatly appreciate it, and working with them has been tremendous. Your willingness to provide some pro bono support after you identified that we needed help immediately has made all the difference in the world. I believe at the conclusion of this process we will end up with a beautiful facility that will work well for SOS into the future."

Delores Lynch
Senior Outreach Services

"In my capacity as Chairman of the Cleveland City Council Public Utilities Committee, I have worked directly with The Project Group, and they have reported to me on Committee matters.  In addition to the assistance and reporting that they have provided monitoring the Capital programs, they have also conducted research and advised me and the Council on other major City issues including: the 2006 water rate increases; agreements with suburban (master meter) communities regarding water service and economic development agreements; and, the City’s Sustainability Program.

"On all of these assignments, The Project Group has executed in a timely, thorough and professional manner.  The Project Group, serving as an extension to my Committee’s staff, has provided us with expert and sound analysis, advice and reporting.  Because of the high level of quality of service that they have provided, I highly recommend The Project Group and its personnel."
