“I am writing to you on behalf of Mt. Charity Missionary Baptist Church. We would like to extend our thanks and blessings to you and your employees for all the efforts in the construction of our new edifice. We would like to specifically thank your superintendent for the professional and expedient job he did in the construction of our buildings. He is an example of why we would recommend Hicks Construction to anyone seeking construction work. He made things happen, supervised workers in an efficient manner and delivered the church when promised. With all the construction that was going on in the City of Detroit, as well as the bureaucratic red tape, the building was delivered in one year. It was a rare pleasure to be able to interact with you personally, instead of a middle person. Finally, we would not hesitate to utilize the services of Hicks Construction Company in future projects. Thank you again and God Bless You!”

  “It was a pleasure working with Hicks Construction on our new Southfield office. Everyone is now moved in and very happy with their new workspaces. I would like to express my appreciation to your project supervisor for his foresight and expertise. His ability to point out potential “red flag” areas before they became a problem helped to avoid inevitable hassles from happening in the future. Please express my appreciation to the electricians, painters and other contractors. This was a great crew you put together for us. I hope Hicks Construction and Arcadia Health Care Services will have the opportunity to work together again. I will certainly think of your company first.”

“As your work on the Livonia Pet Practice project comes to a close, I felt it necessary to let you know what a welcome pleasure it was to work with your staff on this project. I have designed and coordinated the construction of over 15 verterinary clinics with seven different general contractors for the Pet Practice. None of those projects went as smoothly and efficiently as the Livonia project. While changes and modifications are always part of the process, Hicks was able to keep the momentum going and allow the project to be completed on time. Please express my gratitude to your electricians, painters, plumbers, carpenters and office staff. Their work was truly appreciated, and I look forward to working with you and your organization again in the near future.”
