Client References & Testimonials

“Thorough, Responsive, Professional. Robinson and Sawyer understands the obstacles and demands placed on a K-12 public school system. Great engineering, excellent project management and focused problem resolution are the standards I’ve come to expect whenever working with this firm.

“Working with Robinson & Sawyer is always a positive and enjoyable experience. Through a number of projects, I have found their employees to be helpful, friendly, and willing to listen to the owner’s needs throughout the design process. Owners are often faced with maintaining the end product for years to come, and their attention to specific needs throughout the design process helps minimize headaches long after construction is complete. They look for alternative designs and more cost-effective solutions for us to consider that more effectively serve our intended use. Staff at Robinson & Sawyer treat each project with the highest level of care, regardless of project size. I have been pleased with Robinson & Sawyer over the years and appreciate their hard work and quick responsiveness.”

“Our staff has worked with Donald Smith of Robinson & Sawyer, Inc. on a number of municipal projects since he became president of the firm in 1992. Like many other members of our staff, I have come to know and appreciate Donald and the way he does business. He is a team player and we can count on him to find innovative solutions to our project needs. I have recently worked with Donald on the Highland Revitalization Project which involved preparing a tract of City owner property on Long Avenue adjacent to our primary water treatment plant…This was a very challenging project with many critical issues to deal with and we were very please with the services provided by Robinson & Sawyer, Inc. on this project. Robinson & Sawyer can be trusted under any circumstance to provide you with the kind of quality you expect and demand.”

“Robinson and Sawyer has always been very responsive, reliable and competent in each and every project that they have handled for us. Responsiveness is our top priority, as with the majority of projects, we have little to no preparation, and must have a quick turn around. Robinson and Sawyer has never failed to provide us with this type of service. We will continue to use them in each facet of solid waste, anytime the opportunity arises.”

On each of these projects, Don led the design and planning effort and followed the project through to final inspection…Don has served as my “point of contact” with Robinson & Sawyer and in doing so had displayed excellent communication and coordination skills while producing innovative design solutions to difficult problems. Additionally, Don displays exemplary integrity; and as team leader, is always focused on client service.”
