"I would like to take this opportunity to thank your construction crew for the fine job they did installing the new sidewalk and canopy on the east side of the Media Center building. They have been very cooperative with the rules on campus and cleaned their work area every day. Perfection Architectural Systems should be commended for the fine work they do, as well as scheduling and planning."
