This project in particular posed challenges that Guthrie General, Inc. handled with professionalism and poise. Jim Guthrie and his team exercised measures above and beyond expectations to ensure that this project was completed successfully.

The superior workmanship provided by Guthrie General’s staff was reflected in this attractive hospital addition.”

“It is always a pleasure to work with professionals that understand your needs as much as their own desires. When it came time to design our interior, Guthrie General, Inc. put in extra effort. They sent their design teams to our partners locations for day and night meetings to assure that each partner was in the loop and happy with the design and interior work. They took into account traffic flow, durability of components and patient aesthetics. We see large numbers of clients on a daily basis and not a day goes by without a compliment on the décor, design and materials used in our suite. We couldn’t be happier.”

They go the extra mile to ensure that they make the building process as comfortable as possible for all those affected by the building. The overall level of competence, cooperation and attitude necessary to get things done has made successful project deliveries possible.

“In 30 years as a commercial property manager and portfolio asset manager I have come across no company that was better run, or better qualified than Guthrie General Contractors. Their broad scope of staff expertise, and their highly skilled and committed team members, give Guthrie General the basis for their ability to take on any project, large or small, from the earliest stage, design and development, through final completion and delivery on time and on budget. At the same time, this company is communicative and personable, making working with them a pleasure.”

“Having worked with Guthrie General as the pre-construction services consultant on several projects has been a pleasure. Not only do they add valuable assistance in providing costing information on the project while the design team is putting together the drawings, but they are a big help in developing strategies for solving potential problems that confront the team in completing a successful project. I have found their willingness to be a team member refreshing and they do go that extra mile in helping the team. They are not afraid to get themselves dirty, especially on complex remodel projects, when needed to verify existing conditions and come up with practical solutions. I definitely would want them on my team any time I do a hospital project of any type.”
– Neil Terry, Partner, Orcutt Winslow
“In remodeling a twenty-five year old Clinical Laboratory in six phases while keeping the department up and operating has been a major challenge. But, couple that with a four phased addition and renovation to our Emergency Department and a three phase Imaging project and it could have been a real nightmare, but it was not! I give much of that credit to the Guthrie Team led by Dave Landrus and Nate Neal and the spirit of cooperation shown by all of you throughout this project. With no opportunity for discovery in the design phase, your team was very helpful in resolving problems brought on by hidden conditions and those created by department staff requested changes. These were not the only projects Guthrie had in the hospital and yet it or the other projects never seemed to take second fiddle. Perhaps this is why your team is performing most of our project work and have started to do some of our design/build projects as well? It most certainly is.”
– Gerry DeWulf, Director Construction Services, Sun Health Corporation
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the great service your company has provided. As you well know, the healthcare environment is a difficult and challenging one in which to work.

“This letter is in reference to the outstanding relationship the Sun Health family has enjoyed with Guthrie General over the past several years. Because of the high quality demanded by Sun Health, it was imperative that we work with someone with the knowledge, expertise and commitment to communication. Jim Guthrie has always been communicative, helpful, honest and forthright in decisions involving Sun Heath projects. I am particularly impressed with the quality of superintendents that have been involved with Sun Health Construction projects. The office support staff is very knowledgeable, helpful, attentive and make the accounting and administrative management flow very smoothly. Over the past few years I have been involved with at least 20 major construction projects with Guthrie General and I couldn’t be happier. I would recommend Guthrie General to anyone who is looking for a great job to be done and a company who will communicate and do the job right the first time.”
– John Duckett, Construction Manager, Sun Health Corporation
“I have utilized the services of Guthrie General on four separate occasions. During these projects they were responsible for the construction of my outpatient surgical facility and office space. This was fairly complicated project due to the existing structure, which was formerly a pizza restaurant. During that phase of construction as well as during the construction of tenant improvement spaces, remodeling and the addition of a surgical suite, I found Jim Guthrie and his superintendents to be a pleasure to work with. Specifically I have found Jim Guthrie and his crew to be professional, reliable, trustworthy, diligent and respectful during their work. They were particularly so during the remodel phase while I continued to see patients and perform surgery. During the construction Guthrie General’s team was respectful of our patient’s privacy, myself and my staff’s needs in performing our daily duties. I highly recommend them without reservations.”
