"It is a pleasure to write a brief review on behalf of David McKay, Project Manager for the Crane-Huntington Lighting Retrofit Project. Without David’s professional service, communication, follow-up and negotiation skills and abilities, it is my opinion that this project would never have been completed, let alone deemed a success. Should we have another project on the future, I would not hesitate to give David a call.”
- Tim Adsit, Superintendent, Harney County School District No. 4 and 1 J
“I wanted to write and express appreciation for the work done by David McKay, serving the Willamette Education Service District. I have had the opportunity to work with Mr. McKay while completing an energy efficient light program for the Huntington School District. When the project originated, I had great difficulty in getting the proper paperwork organized and difficulty in contacting firms for a school bid. I was referred to Mr. McKay by the state department, and it was the best move I made for the project which was totally bogged down at the time.”
- Gerald Hopkins, Superintendent, Huntington Public Schools
“On behalf of the Board of Directors, district staff and students of this district, we would like to express our thanks for your efforts in the administration of the AD Hay Elementary Lighting Retrofit and PCB Removal Project. Your expertise and expert execution of all aspects of the project were commendable. We will look forward to working with you in the future.”
-Judy Graham, Superintendent, Lake County School District
"As our District contuse to wrestle with the problems of old schools, and inadequate energy conservation practices, the expertise that you and your staff has brought applied to our problems has been helpful, timely, and professional.
We have found your project Management skills to be almost unparalleled: your ability to answer our many questions immediately and completely; your understanding of the nuances of cash flow and project financing and scheduling; and finally, your professionalism in establishing, and enforcing, complex, multi-stage contracts with firms who specialize in energy conservation.
And most cogently, that latter attribute that you have most recently brought into play, at a savings to our District of nearly $200,000, that I most notably want to commend you for. Had it not been for your attention to detail and the care which you managed our project, I could have well proceeded into the final stage of a contract that I didn’t fully understand and would have been unable to explain to our Board (or been able to pay for).
You do all this at a price that is reasonable, or perhaps unreasonable, in that we pay far less than we probably have a realistic right to expect.”
- David Marshall, Director of Fiscal and Support Services, Three Rivers School District
"Thank you. I am very appreciative of your expertise and support through this process and am grateful to WESD for allowing us to contract for your services."
