It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation on behalf of Mr. Roger B. Kennedy, Jr. I can say unequivocally in my over 38 years of professional experience I have never encountered as professional, honest, and capable a General Contractor. Roger has the unique ability to not only understand the overall project scope, but knows that it is the small component parts and a tenacious attention to detail that brings a project to successful conclusion. This ability, and excellent management skills to bring projects to fruition on time and within budget, is a testament to the honesty and professionalism of his General Contracting skills.

I have known Roger Kennedy and his family for over 40 years. RBK has approached the job from the beginning with a "can do" attitude. They have been very helpful in resolving complex issues and in dealing with unexpected design and engineering issues that have arisen along the way. They have been part of the solution as opposed to part of the problem. Their approach to the project from the beginning has been very transparent and cooperative. They have helped us bring the project in at a very competitive cost with our tight budget. In addition, they have the respect of the subcontractor community. I would highly recommend RBK for any multifamily project in their market area.

Our company has several new multi-family communities in the permit/design phase. While we receive bids and inquiries from other general contracts (some of whom we have worked with both here in Florida and in other southeast states), we remain committed to Roger Kennedy and his staff and look forward to many more years of a successful development partnership.

For the past four years, we have been privileged to team with the Roger Kennedy organization in a design-build relationship for over $50 million in military family housing at Patrick Air Force Base. Their performance throughout that period represented the highest that could be expected in partnering. From the very beginning, the forces at Roger Kennedy Construction accepted the challenge in all its aspects and moved forward with the true spirit that partnering requires. The projects were very well managed.
