Your completion of the new 160,000 sf, $22 million, award-winning Wellness & Recreation Center was extremely well-managed.

Mark Bowen, Project Manager at College of Public Health Georgia College and State University

Our university has successfully worked with your firm on numerous projects including the recently completed $6.6 million renovation of Bell Hall. Schedule, budget, and site limitations were just a few of the challenges and Garbutt’s approach brought to the table clever ways of handling these. Charlie Garbutt and his team have been a refreshing change for me. I have been in this business for 20 years and have seldom come across a construction company with the quality and character as Garbutt Construction Company. Regardless of the size and difficulty of the project, I would recommend them for any renovation or new construction project.

The rehabilitation of Hill Hall at Savannah State University came with certain construction challenges, though none measured up to Garbutt’s management approach combining traditional construction wisdom with innovative techniques. From the beginning to finishing touches, we were impressed with the performance of your firm. The attention given to detail regarding every aspect, from safety, preservation of existing historic elements, systems installation and performance, schedule, and especially finish work was crucial to achieving a noteworthy, remarkable, and excellent result. Garbutt’s dedication to client satisfaction was very apparent and impressive.

Garbutt Construction performed a miraculous job restoring the historic Rylander Theatre in Americus. The experience of your staff and the excellent tradespeople and artisans you secured contributed to the overall success of this project. Without Garbutt’s expertise and attention to detail, this historical landmark and cultural center for the entire southwest area of the state would not have been the success it is.

Russell Thomas, Jr., Mayor
City of Americus, Georgia

We were so thrilled to have Garbutt Construction involved in the 2013 Spring Ramble as our presenting sponsor, award-winner, and conference presenter. The event was a great success because of your support. Our attendees loved seeing Andalusia and the Hill House, Ennis Hall, Sallie Davis House, Black Box Theater, The Governor’s Mansion and many of the other projects you have been involved with in Milledgeville. Garbutt is truly a dedicated partner in historic preservation throughout the state.

Mark C. McDonald, President & CEO at The Georgia Trust

Throughout the years we have worked with a number of good general contractors and some great ones and Garbutt Construction Company stands out as one of the ‘great ones.’ The firm’s communication, teamwork attitude, and willingness to excel was evident from the beginning to the end of the Hill Hall renovation at Savannah State University. Each subcontractor was well informed and our input was incorporated into the initial schedule and any revisions. If other General Contractors operated as Garbutt Construction, then relationships between the Owners, Architect, Engineers, and Subcontractors would improve greatly, and then the ‘Teamwork’ approach would work for all.

Ronald A. Tucker, Vice President at Mock Plumbing & Mechanical, Inc.

Two of our most recent renovation projects, Cone Hall and Hendricks Hall, completed with the architectural firm Cogdell & Mendrala, used Garbutt|Christman as our construction manager. These projects exemplified what the CM at Risk delivery method is all about….teamwork. Not only did both of your firms work closely together to overcome challenges, you always made the needs of the University your top priority. Both projects were delivered on time and within budget and resulted in two of the most successful renovation projects with which I have ever been associated.

Ron Dennis, Director, Physical Plant at Georgia Southern University

With the grand opening of the Old Governor’s Mansion coming up, I wanted to tell you what a true pleasure it has been to work with Garbutt|Christman. Your team’s knowledge of historic preservation and commitment to the preservation goals of the project were exemplary and unique in this market. As the construction manager, your proactive management and leadership of the project is second to none. The end result is a beautifully restored house museum that will last for many generations of Georgians.

Thank you for the terrific job you did for Haddock Baptist Church. We appreciated the weekly meetings with you, your job foreman, the architect, and the subcontractors. These meetings were very helpful in keeping things running smoothly. Your jobsite foreman was very knowledgeable and professional and he and his crew were very easy to work with.

William Beaver, Minister of Education and Family Ministry at Haddock Baptist Church

We have had the pleasure to work with Garbutt Construction Company on the renovation and restoration of the Treutlen County Courthouse and you have truly accomplished your work in a masterful manner. When we ran into unforeseen conditions, you were careful enough to document those conditions with colored photographs and present them to a joint meeting of the county commission, the press, the architect, and the public. Our firm would be pleased to have Garbutt Construction on any job we might be working on.

As the General Contractor/CM, Garbutt Construction completed two phases of the Huntington Hall historic restoration at Fort Valley State University. The initial project included structural stabilization, repair, replacement and rehabilitation of exterior masonry, walls, windows, roof, and waterproofing. A later phase renovated the interior. Your firm provided experienced managers and supervisors with the technical and administrative abilities to meet the contract document requirements. You also did an excellent job in complying with the environment, safety, health, and security requirements around the school.

I would like to take this opportunity to commend Garbutt Construction and its employees for an outstanding job renovating Hendricks Hall into the new home of the College of Public Health.

You have constructed a quality product in a quality manner and the entire experience was wonderful. Throughout, I felt like we were all part of the same team, pulling in the same direction to develop something that we would all be proud of.

The combined efforts of your project manager and superintendent provided the leadership needed to complete the $5.3 million Brannen Hall renovation one month ahead of schedule.

Working with Garbutt Construction Company on the New College renovation project at the University of Georgia, I can attest to the outstanding and professional performance that was exemplified during this job. You are a very qualified firm and an extremely knowledgeable construction manager. You are a unique construction company in your willingness and desire to work with the design team and the Owners to determine the best solutions for a project. This is exhibited in your ongoing attention and research into materials and methods followed with the best cost analysis and solutions.

Garbutt Construction has enjoyed an enviable reputation in Middle Georgia for a number of years. Work you have done for our firm is exemplary. The recent completion of the Bibb County Miller Middle School addition required special coordination and cooperation with the school’s officials in order to construct the building while maintaining undisturbed school operations. Your firm performed this duty exceptionally well.

Robert C. Beeland, AIA, Principal

Garbutt Construction successfully completed our recent project to stabilize the structure and renovate the exterior of historic Huntington Hall. Given the advanced state of deterioration, the Garbutt team navigated some very tricky waters and we were well served. Schedule management, and full project team communications were among the strongest assets brought to the table by the firm’s professional team players. We are pleased your same team will perform as  CM for the next phase of work.

My experience working with your staff at Garbutt Construction on several projects including the recent additions and renovations at Kings Chapel Elementary School demonstrated you know how to schedule your work to meet tight time schedules, carry out your work in accordance with your projections and you are thorough in examining the conditions of the project. Your firm provides the type of leadership to subcontractors that results in a collaborative effort and team spirit.
