Commercial Testimonials for Buchanan Construction

Buchanan Construction Company was hired by our company to construct Building #2 at our facility in Etowah, North Carolina. The building size was 100' x 150'. They did an outstanding job for us. The project was completed within the agreed upon timeframe and with minimal interference to our operations.

I would highly recommend Buchanan Construction Company to any organization. They have provided the resources and expertise to successfully meet our requests.

We are a small rural Volunteer Fire Department in Yancey County, NC. We had been awarded a FEMA Flood Mitigation Grant to construct a new Fire House in our community. The Grant process had taken several years and we had been drawing and planning the structure for some time. All the other Contractors we contacted were not interested in working with us. When we found Buchanan Construction on the internet, Rick quickly returned our call and set up a meeting in early 2012. From there he brought in Mark and Charles. They quickly took our pencil sketches and turned them into a Planned Drawing and we were off and running. The Buchanan Team worked with us in allowing us to plan ahead and do what work we were capable of doing and use local contractors and venders where we could. The key to the success of this project was the Buchanan team’s willingness to listen, advise, and opening communicate with us throughout the entire process. Shortly in July 2014 we will celebrate our one year anniversary in new 8000 square foot Fire House without any challenges to date. We would defiantly turn to them for another project. In fact we

In fact we have already recommended the Buchanan Team to a sister Fire District and they have just recently broken ground on their new Fire House and would we highly recommend Buchanan Construction for your project.

Rick gave me excellent advice during our design. He knows value engineering because of his extensive construction experience. During the construction process I was very pleased with the progress. Rick and his job site superintendent were quick to recognize problems and/or potential problems, summons the necessary resources to solve the problem and move on. Rick also gave me good advice on change orders, weighing the extra cost versus benefit. If I was building another commercial/industrial facility, I would look forward to having Rick build it for me. I would unconditionally recommend Rick if you are searching for a General Contractor.

The past six months St. Paul’s Church has had the opportunity to have its new facility at 32 Rosscraggon built by Buchanan Construction. This project consisted of the renovation of an existing 12,000 sq ft warehouse with a new 4,000 sq ft second floor into a beautiful church facility. The project was completed on schedule and in the budget. There are many reasons this was a pleasant experience for all of us. Rick and his staff were honest, always cooperative and fair and kept our interest in focus. Our job superintendent, Tom, was responsive to questions and/or concerns and spent extra time as required to get the job done correctly. Coordination with city agencies, our building landlord, and subcontractors was well done and without any major difficulties. Paperwork and submittals were organized and presented in a timely fashion. It is with confidence that we recommend you consider Buchanan Construction for your next project.

I have had the pleasure of working with Rick Buchanan since December of 2002. The first project we worked together on was a 21,000 s/f three-story turn-of-the-century mixed-use building located in Brevard, NC. The second project consisted of a 13,000 s/f restaurant located in Asheville, NC. Both projects were complex in their own way and architecturally very diverse from each other. Each project was completed with both the owner’s satisfaction and mine. I have formed a very trusting working relationship with Rick over the last five years and have come to rely on his honesty and integrity in providing services as a contractor. I trust his judgment and experience to help solve construction problems. Rick is very organized and keeps the job on schedule. I also feel that Rick is concerned with the final product and the integrity of work in place. As an Architect, I am very selective regarding whom I let bid my jobs and Rick is always on my short list of contractors. I can, without reservations, give my best recommendation for Rick Buchanan.

On my first encounter with Rick, I found him to be creative, fair and a true partner. He and I were told by many that we could not complete this project in the time allotted. We did! I hope you will give Rick an opportunity to assist with your construction needs.
