Craig Kirkendall – Vice President of Construction, BRE Properties, Inc.

BRE Properties, Inc. has employed PC Associates in a consultant capacity for the past 5 years, and they exclusively perform 3rd Party plan reviews on our apartment building projects. All of our projects are new, ground up construction, and have been located from Seattle, WA to Los Angeles. Our projects range in value from $60m – $125m.

In all, PC Associates has reviewed 6 or 7 of our projects, and we find their reviews exhaustive in detail, mind numbingly accurate and extremely precise. A typical package of our contract documents would include 800-1,000 sheets of drawings, a full specification manual that would be 700-800 sheets of 8.5×11 paper, and they perform this review in approximately 3 weeks, 4 weeks at the outside. We find that this timing is invaluable to our process.

We find their staff to be extremely knowledgeable and experienced in the work that we perform and they review. Michelle Pettit is one of the most professional and qualified people in the industry. Her experience leads to a specialized and proficient review, which she’s willing to walk you through the results, page by page if you desire. Usually, their reports will produce a document that is anywhere from 1,500 to 2,000 comments and is a vital step in our assembly of our contract package with our GC.

Having worked across the country for the past 20+ years, I have been exposed to a variety of levels of service provided by firms in the construction and consulting industry. Based on my experience with PC Associates, I rate them as the #1 best experience and performance, ever, that I’ve had in my entire career.

BRE Properties would be thrilled to work with PC Associates again on future projects and recommends their services highly to all those interested in professionally delivered services at competitive prices. If there is anything that I can do for them in the future concerning this project, please do not hesitate to contact me.
