“Westville High School’s massive athletic renovations project is a perfect example of how utilizing the purchasing cooperative can save time and money without sacrificing quality. By avoiding the long, costly, and risky process of low-bidding, Westville was able to hire Byrne & Jones directly and quickly to ensure the project was started and completed within their tight timeline. Westville’s first contact with B&J was in October of 2020 – we had a full scope and contract in place by December 2020 – started digging in February of 2021 and completed our project by August 2021 for football season. In the scope-development process, Westville was able to utilize Byrne & Jones’ vast industry knowledge of sports construction to explore different turf products, equipment uses and bleacher set-ups to build exactly what was best for their athletes and spectators. Westville is a school who knew what they wanted and went out and got it.” Joseph Schuit, Byrne and Jones Construction Territory Manager
“Byrne & Jones did outstanding work for us. In the middle of the COVID pandemic their team continued to meet timelines, budget parameters, and complete work. Superior communication and dependability are the two major reasons we would continue to recommend and use them in the future for similar projects.” Dr. Seth Miller, Superintendent of Westville School District #2
