It is with much gratitude and pleasure that I write this letter thanking you and your fine firm for the efforts put forth on my interior home remodeling project.From the inception you and The Sweetlund Group were extremely attentive to my ideas and were able to put all my visions into place.

The remodeling and renovation project at my residence totaling $186,000.00 and taking only a mere six weeks to complete was handled at all times in a professional, cost effective and prompt manner. Your firm’s efforts were beyond reproach.I appreciated your assistance with locating a wide range of color and finish materials range samples, as well as lighting and bathroom fixtures from which I could choose. Your willingness to share your experience and suggestions was greatly appreciated and helped me to make informed decisions on both cost and quality of selections that will last me a lifetime.

I appreciated the proactive handling of changes made by myself once the project commenced and your extremely attentive and honest communication with me at all times.It was very impressive to see such a large demolition and remodeling project come together in such a short period of time. I’m confident this was the result of your many years of experience and your commitment to customer satisfaction.I am thrilled and very much satisfied with every aspect of the final product you delivered.It has been a true pleasure working with you and The Sweetlund Group, and I would not hesitate to refer your firm to any other clients.

Condominium Remodel - Kevin Ricci

Home Remodel - Kevin RicciThis letter is to affirm that the Sweetlund Group is a construction company worthy of your consideration.

I contracted The Sweetlund Group in the winter of 2009 to complete a full remodel of my condominium including a new kitchen, new flooring, electrical devices and fixtures, plumbing devices and fixtures, trim and paint.  The project began on time, workers were on the job every day on time, all work was completed according to the product specifications and within the agreed upon time frame, and all completed work exceeded my high demands for quality. They cleaned up my home every day after completion of the daily activities – something that I truly appreciated.

During the course of the project, Jeff addressed all of the unknown surprises with expertise. He also provided recommendations to improve quality, and all change orders were reasonably accommodated.

It is said that a customer’s true satisfaction is ultimately demonstrated if and when a customer returns and purchases addition goods or services from a company.  Subsequent to my home remodel project, I plan to use The Sweetlund Group again on any remodel projects that I am coordinating for my Panera Bread stores.

My experience with this company in my home was second to none, and I will contract with Jeff Sweet and The Sweetlund Group in the future.

To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing to recommend without reservation the services of The Sweetlund Group.

I first engaged the services of The Sweetlund Group in August 2010, but NGI/ARC have had dealings with them for a number of years. They have all been positive and of great benefit to both ARC and The Sweetlund Group.

The Sweetlund Group is exemplary in the field of Construction. In fact, I credit our St. Pete location’s rapid build-out and move-in success in huge part to the efforts of The Sweetlund Group and its talented representatives.

I am confident that engaging the competent experts at The Sweetlund Group is a decision you won't regret. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you would like further insight.

Highrise Condominium Facility Services -  Larry Munn

Highrise Condominium Facility Services - Larry Munn.jpgThe Sweetlund Group has emerged as our “go to” general contractor for project work at our assets in the Tampa Market. The reasons Sweetlund is our preferred provider are simple:  They listen to what the customer wants and leverage their vast industry experience to develop workable and economic solutions;  they provide highly competent turnkey services across a broad range of trade areas;  their approach to doing business is honest and very straightforward;  their proposals are thorough and pricing is fair;  they place an emphasis on strong communication throughout the entire experience;  they execute smartly and effectively;  the quality of their work is superior;  they do what they say they are going to do (if not above and beyond);  and they stand behind their work.  In short, they bring to the table everything that you want in a general contractor – regardless of whether it is a $500 sundry project or a $5,000,000 major capital initiative.

What truly separates Sweetlund from other contractors is their sincere passion for what they do - which has been readily apparent throughout every project they have tackled for us. Beginning with its leadership, Jeff Sweet, Sweetlund exhibits a genuine commitment to the project at hand. We generally consider them more of a partner in the process than just a hired contractor. It is alway reassuring to know that Sweetlund, from top to bottom, cares about our projects as much as we do.

As COO, I have a responsiblity to spend our company's resources responsibly. While I could shop project work ad nauseum and probably shave a buck or two here or there, I know that by using Sweetlund the work will be done right the first time by seasoned professionals who know what they are doing. I could easily argue that Sweetlund actually saves me money because I don't incur the expense (or hassles) associated with cost overruns, short cuts, shoddy workmanship, call-backs, unresponsiveness and protracted warranty clains that I have experienced with inferior contractors.

I'd recommend The Sweetlund Group, whole-heartedly and without hesitation, to anyone who needs general cotnractor and/or construction consulting services - small project or large.

High Rise Condominium Facility Services - Kevin McDaniel

High Rise Condominium Facility Services - Kevin McDanielIt is with great confidence that I am recommending The Sweetlund Group. Sweetlund has provided my firm with superior service for our asset in Tampa, Florida and has become our preferred contractor of choice for all issues, large and small. Their capabilities of finding cost effective solutions to very complex issues has saved my firm money as well as helped to free up my time to focus on other issues versus getting bogged down in the micro-management of construction related problems.

I have engaged Sweetlund on multiple projects, and have found that their approach is consistent, regardless of the value of the project. They provide professional project management, resources and intense focus on all the details that lead to success, regardless of whether the project affects the entire building or a single private residence.

In addition to the value of knowing that our projects will be professionally managed and completed on time, Sweetlund has proven to be an invaluable asset as it relates to managing the expectations of our customers. In the business of multi-family real estate development, we find ourselves constantly attempting to find the balance between meeting the expectations of our valued customers while conserving financial resources. Our customers have all been extremely satisfied with the work provided by Sweetlund, thus saving money and time. With Sweetlund, we have found that we receive great value from their competitive pricing, and more importantly the quality of their work allows us to close out issues in a timely manner - again saving money and time.

Commercial Tenant Build-out - Griffin Miller Zysk

Commercial Tenant Build-out - Griffin Miller ZyskThe Sweetlund Group manages their work impeccably; the site is always clean at the end of the day, the price point is clear and fair, and they always complete jobs when they say they will. Jeff also cared enough to make sure I was satisfied by going the extra mile when I didn’t ask him to; he stayed late and happily stepped up to help with tasks that weren’t part of his job.Jeff Sweet & The Sweetlund Group exceeded my expectations and made my dream of owning a stylish, updated boutique clothing store a reality. The store unit Ileased was falling apart; it needed a lot of electrical, structural and plumbing work and I didn’t have any idea where to begin. Jeff helped me create my vision of what I wanted the boutique to look like, and because of his vast experience and client referrals I trusted him entirely with my store.

Overall I was extremely satisfied and impressed with The Sweetlund Group. It is hard to find a contractor that you can trust and that does top quality, exquisite work. I am happy to highly recommend Jeff Sweet and The Sweetlund Group!

Residential Home Remodel - Kelly Boyle

Residential Home Remodel - Kelly BoyleI purchased a “fixer upper” last September not entirely understanding what I was getting myself into. This home is in a perfect location in Palma Ceia on a big lot with a pool and I fell in love with the big picture. I was referred to Jeff Sweet and The Sweetlund Group, Inc. through some mutual friends at church. From the beginning I feltcomfortable with The Sweetlund Group because he showed me a vast library of past work that related to what I was trying to accomplish with my home. He showed me an example of his “line item by line item detailed estimate worksheet” which showed me exactly what I was going to need to repair and update my new home and what the exact cost for each item was going to be up to and including every piece of material and every man hour it was going to take. He told me that he was an open book contactor and showed me every cost including his fee, taxes and insurances. There were zero surprises with The Sweetlund Group. Jeff even promised me that if he missed something on the estimate, The Sweetlund Group would step up and absorb the cost because he doesn’t feel that Change Orders are fair to the client.

I can’t say enough good things about The Sweetlund Group. They far exceeded my expectations in all aspects of the construction process. They began the construction process on schedule, on budget and with the highest quality of workmanship and finished strong on schedule, on budget and with the highest quality of workmanship. I want to encourage anyone about to take on any type of construction project to contact Jeff Sweet and The Sweetlund Group before talking to anyone else; they will make your contractor choosing decision clear in your first conversation.

Low Rise Facility Services - Mike Bartlett

Low Rise Facility Services Mike BartlettI worked with the Sweetlund Group to resolve warranty issues on two of our completed projects in Tampa and Spring Hill, Florida. In both cases they executed flawlesslyon some difficult and sensitive work. We found them to be very cooperative and responsive to our clients' needs. They proved to be very innovative and solution oriented which is invaluable in the tasks we asked them to perform. In each case they were dealing with occupied and operating buildings and were able to work directly with our clients to complete the tasks without disruption to the occupants of the buildings.

Our business is a people business and we were able to entrust Jeff with this valuable part of what we do and he came through for us.

Outdoor Fire Place - Tim & Penny Jones

Outdoor Fire Place - Tim and Penny JonesWe can’t say enough about the excellent work The Sweetlund Group did on our outdoor fireplace. They took what was a boring patio, and transformed it into our favorite room of the house. It was a pleasure working with them, from start to finish. Jeff (owner) really listened to our thoughts, and along with his suggestions, the end result was exactly what we had in mind. We highly recommend The Sweetlund Group to anyone. We plan on using them in the future as well.
