what clients say about our company
  • “C.W. Driver’s Superintendent and supporting office staff were knowledgeable, experienced, professional, and familiar with the contract documents.

    Kris Shackelford, Assistant Deputy Director, City of San Diego
  • “The dedication, experience, honesty, integrity, and overall knowledge are only part of what makes C.W. Driver an exceptional company to work with. C.W. Driver was instrumental in dealing with a myriad of challenges that were experienced during construction. Difficult environmental, seismic, and civil issues all proved to be no problem for their team and were all dealt with quickly and efficiently. If you are looking for an experienced, knowledgeable construction partner that can deliver quality results, then I could definitely recommend C.W. Driver.”

    Jason Cozart, Assistant General Manager, Soboba Band of Luiseno Indians
  • "C.W. Driver is an exceptional firm with exceptional people. They are knowledgeable, proactive, super creative, collaborative, and highly motivated professionals. Even during the preconstruction phase, their project team members were always prepared to dig deeper and reach higher to produce exceptional results. C.W. Driver clearly exceeded our expectations."

    Stephen Chamberlain, Senior Project Manager, CSU Dominguez Hills
  • “When you select a contractor, obviously you’re looking for reputation and brand name, but most importantly, it’s who’s going to be on your job. AMPR&SAND is a historic location reimagined for today’s workforce. The project really is designed to accommodate today’s employee and in the employment world, today, you not only need to find the good employees, you need to keep them and to keep them you need to provide a great place to work. We had the strength of C.W. Driver from the top down, and I do think that Driver’s long-standing history contributed to the project’s success and certainly to us selecting them.”

    Casey Brown, Principal, The Casey Brown Co.
  • “Driver’s performance to date has been exemplary in all respects. Driver has been unfailingly professional and reliable, adding value at every step. And they have been positively relentless in working with us to manage the budget, identifying cost saving alternatives in both design and materials; thoughtfully helping us evaluate the benefits and drawbacks of those alternatives; and working aggressively with subcontractors, through many iterations of bids, to obtain the best combination of price and quality. They’ve provided what might be described as the “steadying hand” of confident, authoritative leadership and creative problem solving.”

    Steve Mazer, Director of General Services, The State Bar of California
  • “The project has ended and I am now equipped to give you a grade of A+++. Your team knocked it out of the park for us. C.W. Driver implemented a flawless plan and delivered on every expectation. After 20 years of experience in real estate development and corporate real estate, which includes developing (4) corporate headquarters, I have not had a better team to work with and I will hunt them down for the next one. I couldn’t see working with anyone else.”
