"The quality of construction was excellent and to complete the work a month ahead of schedule is certainly a rare occurrence, especially considering the unexpected challenges we faced with the project. We would certainly welcome an opportunity to work with Lantz Construction again on future projects."
-Perry Eisenach, P.E., Public Services Director, City of Winchester
