OUR TESTIMONIALS
“Working with Agate Construction has been a very enjoyable experience.  Their original Lump Sum Proposal was very competitive in a hard-bid delivery approach; change orders were minimal and were only the result of our request for additional scopes of work. They were well organized and had a well thought out plan to meet our needs while adhering to their construction schedule, which was 57 calendar days faster than what Tahoe Forest Hospital had in mind. More importantly, there were no accidents, injuries, or incidents during the Project.

Agate Construction completed a remodel at our Tahoe City Physical Therapy Clinic, consisting of interior upgrades to an active clinic full of patients and staff.  Agate was instrumental in developing an approach to the construction while minimizing the impact to our sensitive operations. Having a contractor on our projects who is professional and has our best interests at heart is priceless when working in a healthcare environment. They were very open to collaborating with us and strategizing their activities to meet our needs. Agate’s entire team was very attentive and ensured that we were satisfied with their performance.

This was our first project with Agate; we look forward working with their Team again on future projects”

“Our company recently completed two separate remodeling projects under the direction of Agate. Knowing Lou Primak and Rick Nichols for 40-plus years, I knew that our projects were in capable hands. A major remodel of our BMW Certified Pre-Owned facility was met with several unforeseen challenges due to the age of the building. Lou and his team communicated consistently and were in contact every step of the way to ensure that we remained up to speed to meet our goals for completion and final walk through.”

My very successful business in Paradise, CA was burnt to the ground in the 2019 Paradise Fires after only being open for four months. I was living my dream, and suddenly it was gone. My dream has been on hold for two years, but Agate Construction is helping bring it full circle.

Every person at Agate Construction has been nothing but honest. It is a value I hold and look for in people I am trusting to make my dream a reality and Agate is doing just that, building my new location in Sparks, NV. They are taking my dream and making it reality. They go beyond what you would expect from a contractor. They have treated this project as if they were building it for themselves and that says a lot about the company and its employees. I am extremely happy with the speed of the project. Though the planning was very detailed, the speed at which the project is moving forward is great! It will allow me to open faster and give me more time to hire and train staff. This is my first project with Agate Construction, but I hope to work with them again.

I fell into working with Agate from a friend in our company that had used them for one of his projects. He had first-hand knowledge of the difference in quality and service as he also used another contractor to do another project earlier that year. It was on his recommendation that we ultimately chose to have Agate do our dealership remodel.

When dealing with Agate the first thing that hits you immediately is their attention to detail. We had a weekly meeting that kept everyone informed on the process, any obstacles or challenges, and exactly where we were according to schedule. The timeline was tight and trying to operate a business through construction is difficult. Agate know this and worked around all our customer facing projects on off hours, weekends, or with minimal interruption in service as possible.

Now that our project is finished, I couldn’t be happier. Agate even kept a Forman on the job 6 weeks after completion just to take care of any odds and ends that we needed. Their customer service is incredible! As I reflect back on this project, I do not look at our remodel as a business relationship, rather a moment in time where I have met some lifelong friends.

I would highly recommend Agate Construction for any commercial project you are entertaining. Their customer service, attention to detail, and care about the clients want and needs is refreshing in today’s day and age. Thank you, Dan, Jacob, Joe, Scott, and Lou Primack, for setting the bar really high, then surpassing it!
