“I have been in the corporate real estate business for over seventeen years with two of Toledo's largest companies. I have overseen the construction of over four million square feet of manufacturing plants, offices, engineering technical centers and warehouses in eleven U.S. states and ten countries around the world. I have had the opportunity to work with many local and international contractors and construction management firms.
I have numerous times in the past eight years hired Program Solutions Group to act as construction managers on many local area projects that I have overseen. The two largest projects, one a technical center and teh second a large manufacturing plant, were ran by PSG. PSG was selected fro numerous reasons, but primarily because of their top-notch project management skills, their open book methodology in running the project, and their attention to detail. Both projects had very high visibility at top levels of our organizations as these projects required both tight financial controls within a very challenging timeline. PSG came through as both projects were completed on time, on budget and most importantly, maintaining high standards of quality workmanship and safety of all on site. I'm confident that I could not have selected a better construction management firm and will continue to use PSG on future projects.
Good luck with your project and I am sure you will have as much success as I have had using Program Solutions Group." → View Project

I have personally known the President, Wayne Burrer, for over seven years and can attest to his personal integrity and professionalism. I have also worked with several members of the PSG Team over the past few years and to a person, they are individuals of high integrity who can be relied upon to fulfill commitments.
We engaged PSG to provide a facility assessment several years ago, which was very thorough and helpful in our capital planning efforts. Wayne has also been involved in teh Sylvania Franciscan Village master planning process for the past two years.
PSG has completed several construction projects for us, and all have been on schedule and within budget. They are currently managing the renovation of a former residence hall that includes conversion of one floor into offices and conference space along with other substantial interior renovations of two other floors. The project has been extremely well run, and PSG's attention to detail has been impressive. I have also been impressed with the schedule and budget information that has been provided in a very detailed and timely manner.
It is without hesitation that I recommend Program Solutions Group for construction management and related services." → View Project

“I would like to say how much I enjoyed working with Program Solutions Group during the renovation of Rosary Care Center.
Your staff, especially Jason Mason, did an outstanding job managing the work process in a long term care environment. Long term care deals with many federal and state regulations and it requires a knowledgeable and committed company that can work in that environment every day and maintain the environment in a safe manner for all of the residents. I cannot tell you how much I appreciated Jason’s attention to the details that maintained the safety and integrity of the environment. The end result of the renovation was a beautiful and functional facility that the staff and residents will enjoy for years to come. "

Program Solutions Group was selected as Construction Manager for our 80,000sf Headquarters facility construction in Toledo, Ohio during the spring of 2009. The project involved extensive, selective demolition of significant interior and exterior portions of an existing building and then the complete re-construction of mechanical and electrical infrastructure as well as high-end finishes. We also required the building renovations to be completed within 11 months (including demolition) and it was mandatory that the project achieve LEED Platinum status. Demolition began on October 1, 2009 and construction commenced in January, 2010. HealthCare REIT (HCN) moved into our new Corporate Headquarters Building over Labor Day Week-end of 2010.
As a result of the superior cooperation, timeliness, cost efficiency and support from the Program Solutions team, our building was not only "on time and on budget," but was also certified as the first LEED Platinum Headquarters project in NW Ohio by the USGBC. From the original conceptual cost estimates through the close-out of the project, Program Solutions Group performed above our expectations. All of the deliverables established at the beginning of the project were met or exceeded. The entire PSG team was diligent in addressing our needs and communication and cooperation among the entire project team was seamless throughout the project. THe transparency of their processes facilitated the active involvement of my management team at HCN in the construction process and we always felt "in the loop." The PSG Project Manager, Jason Mason, performed his duties as if he was an employee of HCN and he garnered the respect and admiration of our entire executive staff.
A year ago we hired PSG to complete the second phase (30,000sf) o four HQ project with the same excellent results and we moved into our "north Wing" at the beginning of the year. We would certainly use PSG again on future projects and would recommend them highly to anyone seeking professional Construction Management services.
We now have one of the most modern Corporate Office Buildings between Chicago and Nyw York and I would be willing to take prospective clients of PSG on a tour of our headquarters, if you should so desire." → View Project

“It is my pleasure that I offer my recommendation for the work done by Program Solutions Group. Wayne Burrer and his entire team were professional, courteous and do quality work.
The renovation of the facility we purchased (and after their staff conducted an inspection of the building before purchase) came in on time and on budget. They worked seamlessly with our staff and board members who wanted to stay involved in the budget, design and construction oversight process. Every representative was professional, understood how important this project was to our organization, and responsive to questions or concerns that arose.
Since opening of the building, they have stayed involved, answering questions and making sure the building and all of its components are working well for us. I highly recommend Program Solutions Group and would be happy to show off their work to anyone who wants to see this project in person."
“It is with great pleasure that I write this letter for Wayne Burrer and the staff at Program Solutions Group (PSG). I have used PSG extensively to manage many construciton projects in support of the global business unit needs at Dana Holding Corporation. These projects range from small office renovations to large green field projects, such as industrial facilities and office/technical centers.
The PSG process for projects is very efficient and involves the customer in all phases of programming, procurement, and execution. They have been very effective in ensuring Dana gets the maximum value for its money through value engineering and close management of all contractors. They clearly communicate regular project updates to the customer on teh critical path schedule and budget. Their attention to detail has led to all of our projects involving PSG being on time and within budget.
I have really found PSG's staff to be very diplomatic and amicable in resolving some of the tough issues that always arise when you are dealing with construction projects. I have enjoyed the relationships that I have developed with Wayne and his co-workers even to the point that I would now consider them friendships.
In closing, I would say that if you are looking to do business with an extremely professional firm that is responsive to client neeeds, then you should give full consideration to Program Solution Group." → View Project
