“EBS did an excellent job on the Downtown East Development Wells Fargo Towers project. I was impressed with how smooth everything ran and how easy the EBS team was to work with. I appreciate how the EBS group worked with all trades and field staff as a team. The flexibility reporting to the site, even on short notice, was a tremendous help. I look forward to working with EBS again.

Every time I’m out visiting that facility, I’m simply amazed that EBS was able to restore its look and finish. In the event we get vandalized again, I will definitely use EBS again.”
