I was the Owner’s Representative for the City of Portland, Bureau of Environmental Services, responsible for managing all aspects of work with Braun Construction to perform the SW 25th & Dewitt Combined Sewer Relief Project.  During the course of the project, I developed a solid respect for Braun Construction and their project manager, Jeanie Braun.  Jeanie’s professional approach to accomplishing goals kept the project running smoothly, on schedule, and on budget, with a minimum amount of problems.  The few unforeseen conditions we encountered were met with speed, professionalism and creativity.  Jeanie and her field crew were quickly able to respond to issues and work towards a proactive solution.

I believe Jeanie exhibits many of the qualities essential to being a successful construction manager.  She was involved with all aspects of the work; submittals, site visits, weekly on-site meetings, quality control, billings, safety meetings and all communication.  Jeanie consistently met all expectations and solved problems expeditiously allowing the project to stay on schedule and on budget.  The expertise and professionalism created a seamless project from start to finish.  I would not hesitate recommending Jeanie Braun and Braun Construction and Design.
