I enjoyed working with Stanmar because we had a shared goal. We wanted to build the best building for CSW and I feel very proud of the building that we built together.
Stanmar did a wonderful job providing us a guaranteed fixed price package that we could take to donors. They also did a great job reaching out to all the local subcontractors, coordinating with off island trades, and organizing housing and boat schedules. The finished building looks fantastic and I would work again with Stanmar in a heartbeat!
“I’ve been at Tufts for 33 years, and will never forget the day I moved from my old office into my new one in the Tisch Center. I used to be the track coach, and love the view I have from my office right onto the finish line. The Steve Tisch Sports and Fitness Center is a beautiful building and we are lucky to have it!”
We chose Stanmar, Inc. to design and build our building because we felt they were the best around. We wanted someone who had experience in this area and Stanmar, Inc.’s know-how was a strength. When you look at our new building, there’s a definite feeling that it belongs on campus. Our student center is the finest facility in our league by far. In fact, our facility is the talk of the whole state of Virginia!
When Stanmar, Inc. completed our Hofstra Arena, our men’s varsity basketball team earned a trip to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1977, having gone undefeated in our new buildings. Since then, we’ve produced other championship athletic teams and our arena is better than ever. Stanmar, Inc.’s proven, professional design/build team really knows how to build high-quality, multipurpose facilities and we’ve fostered a lasting partnership with them that is important to us.
We selected Stanmar, Inc. from among a fine field of design/builders because of their previous credentials, and their outstanding professional methodologies. Working with Stanmar, Inc. presented an opportunity for a lasting partnership and that was important to us. They inherently knew how to combine our athletic program needs with that of their professional design/build know-how. Stanmar, Inc. met with us, listened to our needs, and then had the flexibility to adapt.
With Stanmar, Inc.’s innovative design we’re getting all the program components we originally wanted, but in a new building, and we’re saving money. At Tufts, we’re incredibly proud of not only our varsity and club sports, but also our many intramural, health and fitness activities that reflect the University’s vision and values as a whole. I know that students, faculty, alumni, and friends are going to be extremely proud of our new Center…
Stanmar, Inc. exceeded our expectations. Everyone that enters our new facility remarks on its beauty. The interior finishes are gorgeous and the view – overlooking the full length of the pool – is breathtaking. Stanmar, Inc.’s ability to listen and make the change that we needed was also good. Initially, we chose Stanmar, Inc. for value. At the end of the day, we were left with a wonderful facility that looked terrific, and definitely was a pleasure to build. Stanmar, Inc. worked hard to get our facility completed on time and on budget and it’s more beautiful than we expected.
I’ve been in higher education 35 years. I’ve built many buildings and what we were looking for was a company that had a good reputation that followed through, came in on budget, and would work with us as a partner in development of the facility. Stanmar, Inc. absolutely delivered in every aspect. Communication was a hallmark – a strength. They’re promises were fulfilled; we felt that they responded in every way. I would like to have Stanmar, Inc. as our builder on every project on this campus. The relationship between Stanmar, Inc. and Endicott was spectacular… we want to celebrate not only our new center, but the great relationship that was created.
The Center for the Arts has an inherent energy that generates a sense of belonging. It has quickly become the hallmark building of our campus. Working with Stanmar, Inc., first on the Post Sport Center and with the Center for the Arts, has been a true pleasure. Everything was done to achieve the best possible building at our set price. Stanmar, Inc.’s willingness to help us execute the plan has earned our highest respect.
We love the flow of our new Squash & Swim Center. The building blends well with the existing architecture. We also like the fine detailing that Stanmar, Inc. used in the facility – such as the marble treatment on the window ledge in the back stairwell. Everyone also loves the Riverview Lounge. We think it’s spectacular and we’re using it for more than just athletics… We’re hosting many events there.
