Bob’s company was our general contractor on a 5,000 square foot warehouse/office building in Champaign in 2006. He was a delight to work with: He commissioned the building plans, gave us excellent advice, got the permits, and completed the project with a wonderful building. He and his subcontractors were competent, friendly, and easy to work with and did a great job. We learned that we could leave town and that Bob would just take care of things, and I learned to trust his independence and ability to make sound decisions on things that I didn’t need to be burdened with. He knows his craft well, and my partner and I look forward to working with him on a new similar building in the near future.
The purpose of my letter is to describe my experience of hiring FBI Buildings and Bob Tincher of the Hillside Development Group to construct a turnkey project for a new business. The construction consisted of a pole barn 60’ x 200’. The building was to be half insulated and heated and included a 32’x32’ office area. My goal is this project was to obtain an exceptional building at a reasonable cost, constructed in a timely manner and with the least amount of day to day involvement by myself.
After meeting with Bob and explaining the above goals, he proceeded to put together and execute an aggressive construction schedule to meet my timeframe. He constantly looked for cost savings to pass on to me, such as the overhead door savings and the subcontractor credits. I felt he was looking out for my best interest throughout the entire project. With his extensive knowledge of all building trades, he was able to plan, coordinate and manage all subcontractors effectively.
The team of subcontractors Hillside Development put together was experienced, knowledgeable and skilled in their trades. Bob worked with a sense of urgency and required the same from the subcontractors. He communicated well with me in regard to the schedule and details of the project, and he remained closely involved with all aspects of the project from start to finish.
I appreciate the quality of work and Bob’s attention to detail. It is evident that he takes great pride in the work he does. I am extremely happy that Dave Nelson of FBI Buildings recommended Bob and Hillside Development Group to assist me in this project. The team of FBI Building and Hillside Development Group has delivered a high quality building with excellent workmanship throughout. I wish that I had hired Bob and Hillside Development Group for my previous building projects. He was a pleasure to work with and met every one of my goals.
