Testimonials

Words from our clients

The Concord Group has been an integral partner to the success of our facility development needs. The information provided by their team has been accurate, timely and well thought out. Without their services we would have had significant difficulty in achieving our desired goals.

Jonathan Flyte Health First

The Concord Group team became an extension of our own internal team - they integrated flawlessly and were the engine behind making our project a reality.

Mara Lord Medical College of Wisconsin

The Concord Group has a knowledge base on cost data that enabled CPS to reduce its change order rate from 12% to 4% in less than two years. The payback period on the savings for a $200M program based on their change order review was less than a month. They will be a go-to partner for me for years to come.

Cory Davis Chicago Public Schools

The Concord Group added immediate value to our development team by implementing procedures, accountability, and expectations from all parties, including us. They have the unique ability to drill down into deep detail and reporting, while still keeping a high-level vision for the project. The Concord team is responsive and reliable, and I would recommend their services for any project. The earlier they are involved, the more value they can add for the owner.

Eric Nordeen Ascendant Holdings LLC Principal

Concord was a great partner for our projects. They helped keep the projects on budget, managed the day-to-day construction details, monitored the contractor and schedule and many more things. With their help, I am positive that we were able to save a significant amount of time and money and their expertise gave us peace of mind during this process.

Ron Boecker Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare

The Concord Group came on board with this project after some of the project planning had taken place. They jumped in with both feet and provided the exact requirements we were looking for.

Concord’s engineers have done an excellent job on every engagement. We have found their team to be knowledgeable, pleasant to deal with and highly efficient. We also take comfort from The Concord Group’s after service – they will stand over their work in the event of our client being audited.

Their staff were professional and extremely knowledgeable and I was impressed with the quality of the study, which they completed in time for us to take advantage of in the current tax year. I would highly recommend The Concord Group and I look forward to working with them again on future projects.

Bill Lawless The Gage, Chicago

Concord has been an excellent resource for SSM Health. At a time of extraordinary uncertainty within the Healthcare industry, but particularly within our project, Concord provided insight, support and management necessary to deliver solid approaches to complex, competing interests. I would recommend Concord to any owner faced with similar challenges.

Brandon King SSM Health Dean Medical Group

The Concord Group provided great value to the City. We hired them to provide TIF Advisory Services for the City that included construction due diligence administration and observation oversight for a luxury multi-family development along our lakefront. Their professional and technical expertise helped to maximize the quality of the development and get the most of the public dollars used for the TIF investment. We will use them again.

Mark Johnsrud City of St. Francis

In their role as Owner's Representative for the City of Brookfield, The Concord Group has clearly demonstrated unique talents in project management through their management of the construction of a $32 million civic building. Since Brookfield does not typically build such large, high-profile public projects, Concord’s skillsets and specialization have been a true asset. Some of Brookfield's elected and appointed officials have concurred that they respect what Concord has added to the management of the Brookfield Conference Center project. Concord has keenly assisted me in managing community expectations, reconciling costs, keeping third parties on schedule and acted professionally in all capacities.

Dan Ertl City of Brookfield

The Concord Group has been an excellent partner to the success of MATC's ongoing facility needs. Their staff is knowledgeable, responsive to last minute requests and reliable to provide accurate information regardless of the project size or complexity. Their entire team has been a joy to work with. I would recommend them to everybody.
