“I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation on behalf of Rentenbach Constructors, Incorporated. In my 22 years with FedEx Express, I have supported numerous corporate projects ranging from $1M to $256M. As the sole on-site FedEx representative, I have had the opportunity to witness firsthand the coordination skills, project communications, and general leadership of the Rentenbach project team.
Rentenbach has repeatedly demonstrated that they are dedicated to the work at hand and extremely conscious of the cost control issues associated with this project.
Rentenbach Constructors, Inc. is highly respected in the construction community. They have done an excellent job in their site administration...I would welcome the opportunity to work with them on future construction projects.”

“Now that we are fully occupied in our new Signal Mountain School, I wanted to express to you
the appreciation of the Hamilton County Department of Education for Rentenbach's involvement
in the successful completion of this beautiful new facility.
We realized the schedule was very demanding and the fact that your project team…met this schedule is a tribute to the dedication and professionalism of your personnel. We believe a true partnership existed between the school system, the architect, and Rentenbach, and we were able to complete the project both within our schedule and our budget.
The school system would look forward to having Rentenbach serve as the contractor on its

“I want to commend Rentenbach for its performance on the construction of the new STEM Center for Tennessee Technological University. This was a complex construction project for a facility of its size that demanded a superlative effort. The RCI team…was conscientious and proactive in response to unexpected conditions that could have impeded progress of the work. Chris' persistent attentiveness assured that TID's exacting quality standards were met.”

“ETSU/TBR selected Rentenbach as the Construction Manager at Risk for our $30+ million residence hall project, which was completed in July 2009. The selection process was competitive and Rentenbach provided an excellent proposal…The project was completed on time and within budget. Actually, the original project schedule showed the schedule to be completed in two phases with part of the building completed in July 2009 and the remaining wing completed by December 2009. Rentenbach completed the entire project by July 2009, saving the University significant dollars of lost revenue…Their project management team was excellent and they are good communicators. They continued to look for value engineering opportunities throughout the process...I think the one aspect of working with them that impressed me most was the involvement and accessibility of top management. In the end, that one thing is what made the project a success.”

“We have been in our new facility for almost three months now. I must say I continue to be impressed with the performance of Rentenbach and your dedication to excellence with the LeConte Medical Center campus building project…This was a big project and the attention to detail and execution of the building plan was excellent. It has certainly been our pleasure to work with you and your team over the past two plus years. Your team is very impressive. Our staff appreciated the open communication throughout the build. Your working relationship with our architects was outstanding. Another very impressive element in the project was your commitment to safety and participation in the "Keep Sevier Beautiful" site cleanliness project.
Thank you for the outstanding management of our project. We are very proud of our new campus and delighted that you were our partners in creating this amazing facility for healthcare delivery and improvement in the quality of life for those we serve.”

“Of the many construction projects I've directed for Covenant Health over the years, the Fort Loudoun Project was one of the best coordinated and well managed. As the project's construction manager, Rentenbach met or exceeded our expectations. Your company's performance in estimating, planning and value engineering during the design phase was especially helpful to us in meeting budget and design objectives.
Your on-site project team…proved to be highly proficient, accommodating and responsive to our needs -- seamlessly incorporating any necessary changes while maintaining the project's schedule… It was our pleasure to work with members of the Rentenbach staff. We would welcome the opportunity to work with Rentenbach and its team on future projects.”

“Although it has been some time since we have spoken, I wanted to take this opportunity to congratulate you and your team on the smooth turnover of your company's first CarMax Auto Superstore. …we had a tough schedule through the winter months in Oklahoma. Through the day to day efforts of Mike Smith, Ken Mellott and Jason Pierce, this project has been delivered in an above normal quality with a demanding schedule. I am not surprised by this performance, as I have always held Rentenbach in high regard.”

“…the Rentenbach team …performed above and beyond our expectations, and provided excellent management and leadership for our building program.
We recognized a number of advantages from Rentenbach's attitude of "partnering" with their client early in the project. Through their pre-construction efforts, we knew both the construction cost as well as the day-by-day schedule well in advance of the actual construction. This enabled our church to focus on fine-tuning the project scope, ensure fiscal planning and coordinate worship and programming without disruption. Their .care and concern for making the building program a positive experience for our church family was invaluable.
Rentenbach personnel were professional, available on short notice and extended every courtesy to our church to ensure a positive working relationship between the congregation and construction effort. We had a clean and safe job site, a well-informed church staff, and an elated congregation. The project finished on time, within budget and exceeded our quality expectations. In short, we simply received more than was promised. We have been involved in many building projects, and Rentenbach would be our contractor of choice.”
Dr. Tommy Teague
First Baptist Church, Bryan, Texas
“Every representative from Rentenbach has been very professional and extremely easy to work with. Mike Smith did a great job as the Project Manager to keep us on target. Bubba George was an outstanding superintendent and a pleasure to know and to work beside. He saved us much money and a lot of heartache by catching many problems early in the process. Randy Goss (and his constant companion Bud) was always on top of the details again catching things that could have caused delay in the process.
Rentenbach Constructors Incorporated is to be commended for its professionalism and integrity. Each employee represents your firm well. I thank you and them for making this almost two-year construction process and product something we can all be proud of.”

“Our experience with Rentenbach was truly outstanding. This was my fifth building project and fifth general contractor, and Rentenbach stands out as a truly superior contractor. They were focused from the very beginning on making us happy with both the project results and the process, and that attitude extended from the executive office to the on-site superintendents. Their subs were competent and well-managed.
One of the reasons we chose Rentenbach was their understanding of and sensitivity to the unique demands and challenges of the church environment. Their on-job performance surpassed our expectations as they adjusted often and creatively to allow our programming to function as well as possible. Their materials staging and over-all site supervision was excellent and provided to us maximum parking lot access.”
