“Oliver & Company’s involvement with the organization goes back years. They were integral to the planning of capital campaign, evaluating sites, and preparing estimates for earlier iterations of building designs. Their style of project management made the project a joy to work on for all involved. Their communication with the architect, the owner’s representative, and U.C. Berkeley’s capital projects team was courteous, responsive and effective. The project was completed on time, on budget, and with great attention to detail.”

– Alla Efimova, The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life

Congregation Shomrei Torah“The Congregation Shomrei Torah Board of Directors expresses its heartfelt thanks for the many years that you have spent working with us.

San Francisco Film Centre“The outstanding leadership and quality of workmanship provided by Oliver & Company was an integral reason for the success of these rehabilitation projects. They also understood that projects done by a non-profit face a different challenge relative to their budget and time line than a for profit developer. They worked diligently to monitor costs and come up with creative solutions to keep costs down while still accomplishing the goals and dreams of the clients and staying on schedule. I believe Oliver & Company went way beyond the norm to give of their time and concern for the organizations and the end result speaks for itself.”

– Melanie Blum, San Francisco Film Centre

Valley Montessori“I just want to express how thrilled I am with the Oliver team. They have done a great job with laughter all the way. They are the perfect partners.”

– MaryEllen Kordas, Director, Valley Montessori School

BAR Architects“The unique quality of Oliver & Company’s contribution to their projects is an approach which is only perceptible if one is able to observe closely how their interaction with the clients draws out their critical needs and aspirations within the complexities of construction. It is this ability to personalize each project delivery and continue to support and reassure the clients throughout the life of the project, and in some cases beyond, that is among the most important strengths for the final result.”

– Debra Lehtone, BAR Architects

ODC“As a non-profit arts organization, inevitably and understandably, our greatest need going into each project was to bring it in on time and, most importantly, on budget. With ODC’s construction projects, Oliver & Company did both. Through their years and range of experience, Oliver & Company, on numerous occasions, found solutions that saved ODC money without sacrificing quality and without veering from the architect’s plans and vision. From estimating to final punch list items, Oliver & Company is on board and dedicated to a project. You have access to Steve Oliver throughout the process and his project teams are experienced, quality-driven, responsive individuals. They are present every step of the way.”

– Lori Laqua, Former Director of ODC
