I had the pleasure of working with Brooks & Freund (B&F) on the construction of the DOT Engineering & Operations Building...

Ayoub R. Al-Bahou, P.E. – Senior Engineer/Project Manager Lee County Construction & Design

I have dealt with Brooks & Freund on six separate affordable housing construction contracts. In each case, they have built high quality products within budget and ahead of the original construction schedule. I am extremely satisfied with the management of these jobs and the owner’s participation to ensure that everything flows as it should.

Richard E. Cavalieri – Development Manager, Norstar Development USA, LP

Richard Freund and his team were tremendous help in suggesting better ideas for design, and controlling costs and the sub-contractors. The result was that the remodeling was done on time, under budget, and the quality was outstanding. Our committee had weekly meetings at which Richard kept us informed, and we were able to resolve any issues that came up. I would recommend Brooks and Freund to anyone who is considering a remodeling project or new construction.

Bob Minahan - Royal Palm Yacht Club

From the preparation services, to the ground breaking, to the project at its current state – Brooks & Freund has been a pleasuer to work with. I have no hesitation when recommending their services to others. I look forward to completing the project with Brooks & Freund at the helm.

Ryan Levi – Chief Operating Officer, Diversified Yacht Services

We cannot say enough good about Brook & Freund. We had initially started this project with another contractor. Since Brooks & Freund entered the pictures, things were completed quickly and they did an excellent job...
