TESTIMONIAL FROM CLIENT
“We have completed over 2 Billion dollars of healthcare construction since 2008, during that time I have used HSJ exclusively on all projects. Their attention to detail in construction drawings have saved us thousands of dollars on every project. They get it when it comes to the complicated integration of building systems today. In the beginning, I used them for doors, hardware, and access control. Today they design all of our data infrastructure, security systems, access control, and provide specifications for all of our doors and hardware as well as perform our yearly fire door inspections.”
