Testimonials

"It is refreshing and rare to find a General Contractor like Sunwest Builders that is willing to make the extra effort to put quality and craftsmanship back into construction."

"I have found that the staff of Sunwest Builders are consummate listeners, strive towards keeping lines of communication open and precise, are committed to being team players and know how best to work with architects to maintain the architectural integrity of the project without jeopardizing an Owner's budget."

"I have found Sunwest Builders preliminary cost estimating services an invaluable tool for our firm and our clients. Their accurate cost estimating skills keep our projects on budget from the get go, but more importantly prevent costly scheduling delays as a result of the architect having to go back and re-design a project to meet project budget requirements after the construction documents have been developed."

"Carlson Veit Architects worked with SunWest Builders on two shopping center projects in Salem and Redmond. We found SunWest to be a great member of the project team. The projects were well-managed, completed on schedule and within budget. We look forward to working with them again in the future and would definitely recommend SunWest Builders to any potential client."

"First off, the most important outcome of our construction with Sun West was that the building was completed on time and within budget. Steve and the employees of SunWest Builders were largely responsible for the success of the COCC Redmond project.

I was impressed with SunWest’s level of attention to every detail of the project. They were well prepared for all meetings and were very good at keeping the COCC Project Manager up to speed on the day to day aspects of the project. As with all construction projects, unforeseen situations arose through the course of construction; SunWest not only notified COCC staff of these situations they were also very good at providing remedies or corrective actions.

It was a pleasure to work with Steve and SunWest Builders."

"Over the past 15 years, we have developed real estate up and down the West Coast, including projects in Palm Springs, Sun Valley, and Rancho Santa Fe. Sunwest is one of the finest general contractors that we have ever worked with. When they break ground on a new project, we know we can count on them to bring it in on time and on budget."

"SunWest Builders cares about quality and has a strong commitment towards doing the best job possible. This was evident during their contract with us to construct 8 units of housing for a special needs population. SunWest Builders went the extra mile for us to find ways to help build quality housing AND keep the costs within our constrained funded budget, both during the upfront value engineering phase and throughout the construction. The SunWest personnel for this project were always positively engaged, generous on our behalf, and quick to address and solve any constructions issues. The bottom line: it was a pleasure to work with SunWest Builders."

"SunWest worked closely with the staff and board of Seven Peaks School to design and build a facility that met their needs for preschool - 8th grade students. Steve Buettner provided the link to assure that special requests were honored and was available to Seven Peaks during and after job completion to answer all those endless details. "

"SunWest Builders is an excellent company. I have worked with them on the Sunriver Owners Association Office and also on the Sunriver Realty Building and Bellatazza Coffee, all in Sunriver. Steve Buettner, the President of SunWest, is a very up front individual and I have complete confidence in his integrity."

"I hired SunWest to construct my new commercial office building in Redmond. This was my first commercial project, and I was a bit nervous because it seems everyone I had spoken with had horror stories to relate about cost overruns and projects that were not finished on time. In addition, I didn't have a lot of time to devote to the project. I am happy to say my building is now complete, and I don't have one of those horror stories to tell. The quality of SunWest's construction was great. All of the people I worked with were courteous and professional. Of course there were the normal hiccups that can't be avoided, but Mark and Jeff did everything they could to minimize these and make them transparent to me. I would not hesitate to use SunWest again in the future, and would recommend them to anyone wanting a quality job completed in a timely manner."
