“Letter of Recommendation Gillespie Electric
Dear’ Ms. Aldred
It is with immense pleasure to recommend Gillespie Electric to receive the 2022 Excellence in Construction Aivai’d for their commitment to excellence as a company of the highest quality and standards. As the Construction Manager for the Porsche-Warrington project, we were able to \vork in conjunction with Gillespie Electric and their team.
Gillespie Electric and its team were vital to the successful completion of Porsche-Warrington with the complex design-build and extremely aggressive timeline. They were able to obtain gear and supplies amidst a time in which supplies were limited and fluctuating shipping dates.
In working with Gillespie Electric, we were able to establish a working relationship with a company that upholds their mission statement providing service that excels not only in their artisanship, but their relationship with other subcontractors and parties on the project. They portray and conduct the key components of business relationships, communication, respect and expectations, at its finest. Their ability to have interpersonal relationships while carrying out high quality craftsmanship provides them a competitive advantage and is one of the reasons why North Star Construction Management Inc. provides its unwavering support and recommendation for Gillespie Electric.”
“I wanted to drop a note to Cory Burkhart to say Congratulations on your recognition for being 2020 Emerging Leader of Year at the ABC 2020 Excellence In Construction Awards event. That is great recognition for yourself and Gillespie Electric, Inc. from an excellent organization.”
“Hi, Our tenant is a retired general contractor. He said your guys did great work and we should call Gillespie again when service is needed.”
“Matt, I just wanted to let you know that the work done at our office was flawless. Avery and his assistant were professional and respected the office atmosphere. I would say it went much smoother and was much less disruptive than expected. Thanks for all your help, as always Gillespie lives up to their excellent reputation. Regards, Tim”
“July 28, 2017 To whom it may concern, Gillespie Electric worked for IMC Construction at the award winning King of Prussia Town Center project and performed electrical work on multiple retail buildings alongside many other trades as well as the complex site and landscape lighting packages. Their scope eventually grew to over three times the initially awarded size, in part due to an evolving project scope that included three (3) additional buildings, a site package with complex lighting, fountains and A/V system amenities that were initially presented as only conceptual plans as well as far reaching expectations for a high profile client that was developing a signature project in the region. The scope for IMC, and thus the entire project team, continued to expand as the project developed. Gillespie Electric handled their work and each additional challenge presented to them with professionalism, ingenuity and with a problem-solving approach to each task. They are IMC’s go-to electrical subcontractor when we need to partner with a company to help handle complex electrical work; they earned the same distinction from the client on this project through their tireless efforts to help the project succeed. The entire project team from IMC as well as the developer is very much appreciative of their efforts on this project and look forward to continue our relationship with them in the future.”
“Gillespie came into a difficult project that was behind schedule and they did a great job manning the job and catching us up. I was nervous that they had rushed, so I brought in my electrical engineer to inspect. He confirmed that not only did they get the job on time and back within budget, but the workmanship was top notch. We were very happy with the job they did and will definitely speak to them on our future jobs.”
“I wanted to reference your employee Jason Charnik as he has done most of our electrical work for us at 3M Royersford for years. Jason knows how to listen to us and understand what our needs are and then apply his knowledge of codes and best practices and complete the assignments. Jason follows our safety procedures without any problems and is quick to point out any safety issues. He works well with all of our staff which can be difficult at times because of working in production areas and not disturbing the work flows. Big jobs, small jobs, difficult jobs, or dirty jobs whatever is required is never a problem. It is a pleasure to work with Jason and the Gillespie team and hope our relationship continues.
“I had the privilege to get to know Terah Williams and Gillespie Electric in fall of 2013. We were in the final stages of design and entitlements on a 260,000sf green field cold storage facility in Quakertown, Pennsylvania and were looking for highly qualified electrical subcontractors with design build experience. During our prequalification process we checked numerous references and visited prior projects completed by Gillespie. All recommendations and observations were made with high regard. We ran our competitive bid process with ten prequalified subcontractors and Gillespie Electric not only had a competitive edge but was also very comprehensive in their evaluation of the request for proposal documents as well as identification and inclusion of key critical scope items that were somewhat ambiguous. During the bid evaluation Terah was thorough and detailed in every aspect of the process so as to provide a complete picture prior to award. The pre award process was indicative of the relationship. We selected Gillespie Electric for the project and Terah directly managed smooth and predictable delivery of the work. The Contract Value was approximately $2 million. Terah, Gillespie and the entire project Team delivered the project in accordance with contract documents at times exceeding expectations. Over the duration of the project I felt that procurement and activities were being managed in an efficient manner and that we were getting good value. Terah remained involved with all activities on a daily basis assuring not only employee loyalty and performance but also the successful performance and completion of their work. Gillespie Electric has since been successful in the competitive bid process on two additional projects for our firm and I can unconditionally recommend both Terah Williams and Gillespie Electric as a qualified electrical subcontractor for projects of similar scope and size. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.”
“Dear Mr. Jerry Gillespie, On behalf of The Whiting-Turner Contracting Company, I would like to personally extend my sincere Thanks to all of the folks at Gillespie Electric for their hard work and dedication on the Lafayette College, FAMS/T project. If it wasn't for all of the employees pitching in from your estimators, to your project management and Mark's field supervision, the project would not have been as successful as it was. Having said that, I personally would recommend Gillespie Electric to any prospective customers looking for an experienced electrical contractor that can tackle any project no matter the complexity. I hope that our firms have the opportunity to work together in the future.”
“It has been a pleasure to work with Matt Rehrig and Matt Sauers, and I have been very pleased with their responses, and level of customer service provided when help is needed. I wish I had more work to use you on, and any project for us in your area will be a Gillespie project as well. Thanks for the help and support, and I look forward tp additional projects in the near and extended future. Matt has always responded promptly to our requests for assistance and has always provided us with qualified workers and dedicated service. He is an invaluable assest and excellent representative for your company, and I would ask him to join our team in a heartbeat if he ever relocated to East Tennessee!”
“3/26/2021- Hello Matt,
Just wanted to drop a note and say that your team did a great job at the Royersford site for our recent project. I would consider this a large project with an ambitious time line and your team completed everything on time while working amidst our production operations. The complete Gillespie team carried out the project while following our safety requirements, extremely professional, and with a very high level of quality workmanship. It was a pleasure working with everyone and the result is greatly appreciated. Please let the team know they did a great job.”
“I just wanted to thank you again for restoring the electric service to my springhouse, which was damaged by a falling tree. Aaron remounted the outside wiring to a location under the eave where it probably will never be damaged again. I appreciate the prompt service and will recommend your company to anyone I know who needs similar work done.”
“I want to thank Gillespie Electric for allowing Jason Charnick to be our Electrical Service Technician at the Gift of Life Donor Program. Jason is always available to jump right in whenever Gift of Life is having any electrical Problems 24/7/365. He also manages special IT requests along with coordinating many large capital electrical projects. Jason is always professional at Gift of Life buildings and also interacts extremely well with all of its employees.
We sincerely appreciate Jason's commitment and Gillespie's to Gift of Life!
“Matt, Please also make sure everyone on the Gillespie team a big THANK YOU, for the tremendous job you guys did. Timely, neat and professional. We could not have asked for a better result!”
“I appreciate the careful work done by Trevor and Matt at the job and thought that you should know that they represented you well, planning ahead well and with nicely executed finished installations.”
Thanks for following up. Yes I think the installation went very well. Gillespie did precisely what they said they would do in a shorter time frame than originally estimated. I was very impressed with Jim’s preparation for potential weather situations and also his leadership and coaching of some of the greener electricians on lock out, tag out, and safety. Your entire team was professional and receptive to completing our contractor training and following our site policies.
I will certainly keep Gillespie in mind for future potential electrical projects.
