“Being in the Real Estate and Construction industry for well over 30 years, it is refreshing to find a contractor with your best interests in mind.  Ben Harvey has a stellar reputation, and his performance on the job reflects his core values of honesty and integrity.  There are no games or hidden costs in his bids – every trade is detailed and supported by quality sub contractor bids, ambiguous items on architectural plans are questioned and resolved prior to contract execution.  His Project Managers are very talented, detailed oriented and most importantly present on site to insure all work is completed to the highest standards as scheduled.  Documentation of every facet of the job is detailed and delivered in a timely manner.  Schedule and budgets are mutually agreed to and adhered to as closely as possible. Ben is not an absentee manager; he will be present at the majority of Construction Meetings and visits each of his jobs routinely to make sure his clients are receiving the service he promised to provide.  Benjamin R. Harvey Company is clearly tops on my bid list for major construction projects.”

“I take great pleasure in being able to support the application of Benjamin R. Harvey, Inc. We have a lengthy experience with this company that spans nearly two decades, which provides the basis for my unconditional backing for the business. Brookdale has virtually transformed itself over the past twenty years. As the generic mission of community colleges changed from being exclusively transfer institutions for students seeking baccalaureate degrees to becoming significantly more than, the infrastructure, physical plant and buildings at our college have undergone significant modifications. Such growth has been both an exciting and a challenging experience. Throughout our multiple development stages, the Benjamin R. Harvey Co. has been instrumental in fulfilling Brookdale’s changing needs. The Ben Harvey Company will have work done well and in a timely fashion. The principle requirements of having jobs completed on budget and on schedule have guided the style of work the company has employed in its dealings with us. I am sure they will deliver the same for you.”

“Our agency, Search Day Program contracted with Benjamin R. Harvey, Co., Inc. to build a school on our existing campus for children with autism. Ben Harvey and his crew of builders had the task of not only building our school, but doing the job while we were in session with our students. I’m very pleased to state that our school did not skip a beat with any of our typical school functions, faculty and student programming and routines, while Ben’s site manager and crew were at work building our new school in very close proximity to our existing school and programs. If for any reason we had a minor bump in the road, they were always available and provided an immediate fix to the concern. Additionally, the workers were always respectful of all our faculty and students and sensitive to our unique program of services, while still working full speed ahead on the building. Ben Harvey and his group were contracted after all our site plans had been completed and finalized by our architect and engineers and therefore was not part of the early process of developing a building that would best meet our needs. Once Ben and his crew began to understand our unique needs for programming, services and supports to children with autism he made a few recommendations from both a structural and cosmetic focus in certain areas of the building. Yes, he did suggest some change orders, and yes we agreed because they really listened to our needs as educators of this very wonderful and unique group of children and those suggested changes made perfect sense. In the end even with several changes or modifications to the building we completed the project on time and under budget. The Search Day Program is very proud of our beautiful new school and appreciative of the great group of professional which we were fortunate to work with on this project. Today, they continue to stay involved with the supporting out agency with a variety of projects including volunteering and participation in our annual events at the school. A truly great group of professionals and I would recommend to anyone who is considering such a project.”

“The Center in Asbury Park, founded in 1992, provides support services to people living with HIV/AIDS in Monmouth and Ocean Counties, New Jersey. In 2001 we secured grant funds to provide permanent supportive housing for twenty-five formerly homeless individuals living with AIDS and commenced getting the variances necessary proved to be an obstacle. We were held up for over a year. When finally the approvals were secured we quickly proceeded with other tasks and finally, in Fall, 2005, we were able to contract with Ben Harvey Company to build our building which included not only the twenty five apartments but a first floor of common space, an industrial kitchen, offices, and more. The challenge was that because of our lengthy delays our funding (largely low income tax credit investments) demanded that we open the building for rent up by December 31, 2006. Ben Harvey Company assured me that that would happen. Most of my advisors doubted it would. In October, 2006, we opened Center House and the new Center in Asbury Park and by December 31, 2006 we had seven people living in their new home. The end result is a beautiful building, we built. I gladly recommend Ben Harvey Company for your project. I found them to be honest and forthwith in dealing with them. My funders and my building task force, who know more about building quality and construction that I, were extremely pleased with the quality of work and the final product.”
