“Without question, this project's success is integrally tied to your participation. I cannot exaggerate how critical you've been. I truly think that we could have replaced anyone on the team without adversely affecting the outcome of the project, except you.”
“I have enjoyed our interactions on a personal level… I also hope we cross paths again… Thanks for everything”
“Dirigo brings a unique and innovative flavor to managing complex projects, and quickly becomes a reliable partner in administering the project on behalf of the Owner.”
“You set the bar very high for providing key project leadership”
"It would not be possible to end this note without mentioning how much we enjoyed working with the designated owner’s representative for this project, Thomas Perkins, PE. We made it a priority here at Maine Energy that we were going to stay ahead of Tom’s expectations and with his vast experience and knowledge, it was a great working relationship."
"My most sincere thanks to Tom and Dirigo for slaying this dreadful dragon before it reaches my office door!"
"Christina has been a life saver. Her work is extremely thorough and she has earned high praise from the folks she has been working with. She gets along well with everyone. Thanks for loaning her to us."
"We really liked the fact you are PE and had a designer which, in our opinion, gets right to the meat and potatoes of projects. If a project comes up in the next 2 years I will definitely suggest using Dirigo."
"Yahoo. Great. Thanks for all the help."
