The level of involvement throughout the course of the project made it easy for us to construct a new school. By having Riley's Project Manager as the single point of contact for the schedule, budget, even owner furnished deliveries, it made it very easy and convenient for me as the owners representative. They keep the owners best interests in mind at all times."

Lake Zurich Rural Fire Protection District
"Riley Construction is a full service contractor that looks out for the best interest of their clients. The initial interview suggested they were a professional outfit that understood the operational needs and the financial constraints of our project. After review of our architectural drawings, Riley was able to suggest construction enhancements while simultaneously maintaining or reducing costs. During the construction phase of the project, Riley provided competent on site management. The project maintained the expected time line and fell within the pre-determined bid process costs. Questions and concerns that developed during the project were directed to either the site manager or Tom Riley, where they were dealt with in a quick and efficient manner. Based on the above relationship during the construction of our Fire Station #3, we were confident with the quality of services provided by Riley and decided to employ them as the contractor for the construction of our next Station."
