Matthew P. Abbatessa

My name is Matthew Abbatessa, the Director of Facilities Services for Urbana School District #116 in Urbana, Illinois. I am writing you to extend my sincere recommendation of Johnco Construction, Inc..  Johnco Construction has shown themselves to be a highly professional, highly available and responsive, and a quality contractor at a top-notch level. The school district sees Paul and Johnco bringing a true partnership and allyship to us in all aspects of our construction projects. I in sincerity can state all stakeholders see our valued contractor in Johnco constantly delivering for the school district from conceptualization through all aspects of construction.

Currently Johnco Construction is working as our most valued partner in our Yankee Ridge Elementary School expansion and renovation. The Project encompasses over 40,600 SF of renovation with additional new building space of 26,800 SF. The renovation includes major building components that require a superlative contractor maintaining a sense of professionalism and a level of equanimity to maintain all aspect of a major construction project such as this. Johnco and Paul Berns continue to deliver this in spades for the school district. From mitigating to scheduling, to value engineering, to reaching benchmarks Paul Berns and Johnco Construction simply deliver. The Urbana School district and I are more than satisfied. We are quite frankly looking forward to working with Johnco on several future projects happening in the school district as well as we are enjoying working in true partnership with Johnco Construction on our present construction project.

I value my working relationship with Paul Berns and Johnco Construction.
