Hear from our
satisfied clients

Kim Baxter / QCI

It was clear from the beginning that they were going to be a partner and not just someone we hired, and that played out from the moment we started. They were very responsive. We were a priority. It was clear they were devoted to what they do, and they were very intense in their attention to their project. That gave us a lot of confidence.

Scott Reardon / D3 Engineering

We chose to work with Mitchell because they felt most like us. They’re a small business and we’re a small business. They felt like they were the right size for us. The owners or leaders were on site to communicate with us.

Harvey Fleming / Arctic Glacier

We used Mitchell on a major renovation of our plant. The project was full of unknowns because its such an old building. They had to build walls and tear down other walls. There was a lot of engineering and some unforeseen issues, yet they were able to work through them in a timely fashion and stay within time frame and the budget.

Sr. Project Manager Josh attended training and toured the production facility at @chief_buildings last week. He saw firsthand the quality of materials and precision engineering that goes into each Chief Pre-Engineered Metal Building. MDB even got a shout-out in the training for our award-winning @lifestorage building in Penfield! #designbuild #PEMB #preengineeredmetalbuilding #training #commercialconstruction #architecture #design #selfstorageindustry #selfstorage

Working in a building over 100 years old, the only way to find out how thick the concrete floors are, and what's in the concrete, is to take a core sample. These cool cylinders are from the Sibley building. #designbuild #architecture #commercialconstruction #renovation #concrete #ROC
