Cambridge Companies’ commitment to providing superior workmanship and customer services is evident through the glowing references of our clients. We take the time to understand each client’s needs and then devote our energy and experience into turning their dreams into reality. That’s why, time and time again, our clients return to us for repeat building projects. Because customer satisfaction is so important to Cambridge Companies, we frequently ask for our client’s feedback. Here are just a few of our recent client evaluations:
“I wish to express our appreciation for the work Cambridge Companies has done on our Solid Waste Transfer Station Project. Using the Design-Build process was an unusual project for our City. From the proposals through construction the experience and professionalism of the Cambridge staff was a great asset to our project. The experience of the Cambridge team gave us confidence that the project would be done well, on budget, and on schedule.
As is common with projects of this scale, there were unexpected challenges. It was encouraging to work with the Cambridge team to address those challenges. The Cambridge team did an excellent job of listening to our interests, evaluating and communicating alternatives, and then taking action to implement the agreed upon actions. To our great satisfaction many of those elements were able to be implemented without adjustments to the project budget or schedule. We would complement the entire Cambridge staff including Evan Williams, Jeff Eriks, Gil Rivera, Tim Nay, and the Weaver Boos staff for their dedication to keeping the project on schedule. They coordinated the design, permitting, and construction phases of the project smoothly. The weekly conference calls were productive to keep communications open and get decisions made promptly.
Large projects always have a degree of difficulty tied to them. Working with Cambridge Companies minimized that degree of difficulty. Working with the Cambridge team was a pleasant and productive experience. We would certainly recommend Cambridge to other communities considering a Design Build project. We would welcome an opportunity to work with Cambridge Companies on future projects.”

“Without reserve, I would like to give a glowing reference to Cambridge. They demonstrated a superior degree of professionalism in all their dealings with me and my associates. The quality of their work in assembling and managing subcontractors resulted in a facility that has impressed all who have toured it. I built this transfer station as an extension of my hauling company, and had no prior experience with such a project. With on-site supervision, weekly meeting with subcontractors and owner, weekly project updates with photos and ongoing tallies, and prompt and accurate back office support, these guys are tops.
…Best regards to all our new friends at Cambridge.”
“…Ray Eriks and his team have become trusted partners to my organization. They invest themselves in understanding our needs and consistently take a very personal ownership of the outcome. No matter the location or the obstacle, they are with us every step of the way and long after the grand opening.
At (our company), we act with purpose and are building things to last. Fortunately, Cambridge shares in those beliefs. Ray and his son Jeff continue to support our company’s growth with their ongoing dedication to quality and innovative thinking.
I confidently recommend partnering with Cambridge on your next project. Your building needs integrity; so do the people who build it.”
“I am writing this letter to let you know of the positive results I experienced with Cambridge Companies over the last eight years of partnering on projects. These projects include project development, design, engineering, construction, construction management, and occupancy… From siting to design, construction and project management, they have been able to recommend modifications and improvements to our operating facilities that fit the criteria we promote within our operating groups. Whether that is a brand new building or large project modifications and upgrades, the Cambridge team reacts fluidly and provides me with budgetary information and several design options on time.
I like dealing with one company to get work done from design to project completion, as this allows me to hold one company responsible for completion of the project. To date, after 8 years of dealing with Cambridge they have completed the projects per the scope of work, on time and made good on any concerns we have as a company.
I would recommend their team as one with good communication, quality work, and timely project completion.”
“Over the last several months we have contracted Cambridge Companies to build and oversee a new transfer station for our company. I am glad to report that the site has developed as scheduled and we are kept well informed of events as they transpire… Jeff Eriks and his staff are great to work with and do not hesitate to suggest improvements that may make the site layout better or save us money during construction. Cambridge’s local site manager Lon has been a pleasure to work with and has added a lot of real world common sense improvements to the site that will assist us in future operations.
Overall, I would recommend Cambridge Companies as a great vendor for your project.”
“I wanted to take a moment and thank you for the work you and the team at Cambridge Companies did regarding the (Massachusetts) Transfer Station. From the design stage, thru the construction, we were pleased with the results of the project. Furthermore, I’d also like to complement the Cambridge project team of William Barry and onsite construction manager, Marc Kelly. We understand starting construction in early spring in New England can be daunting, but the project team worked hard to keep the project on schedule to meet (our) time schedule.
Thanks again, for a project well done.”
“Cambridge Companies did an excellent job in managing the construction of our new maintenance facility in Wilsonville, OR. Throughout the entire process, Cambridge staff acted with urgency and professionalism. Your firm embodies a “customer first” approach with their partners, clients and subcontractors. This proved to be effective on numerous occasions including the change to system development fees, the reworking of the storm water facility and numerous civil engineering adjustments. While the City of Wilsonville was difficult and often times unpredictable, Cambridge staff always communicated thoroughly, responded with urgency and found solutions.
In the end, despite numerous unforeseen set-backs, Cambridge delivered a “top notch” Maintenance Facility, container storage area, storm water facility and an overall redesign of the site within a time frame that allowed minimal disruption to our business.
We had no issues with Cambridge and look forward to working with them again on future projects.”

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you on behalf of myself and my staff for all your hard work and diligence over the past several years. You and your staff are dedicated to helping us design and build facilities that will withstand the wear and tear of daily operations. Whether it is a transfer station, hauling company, recycling facility, or a container shop, your projects always meet our tough demands for being on-time and on-budget.
I greatly appreciate that your team provides (our company) with turn-key solutions, which allows my staff to focus on their real job – helping the company grow. Cambridge is given the project idea and then assists us with whatever is required from there, including: conceptual design, site plans, zoning/re-zoning, floor plans, construction drawings, estimating/budgeting and construction.
Once again, thank you for all your efforts and we look forward to a strong ongoing relationship as we move forward.”
“…Cambridge preformed their duties to the utmost professional manner. Each project was completed on time and within our budget. Most importantly, Cambridge completed tasks above and beyond their scope of work and provided in-depth expertise. They communicated schedules and progress accurately and continuously.
Along with being extremely professional in performing their duties, they are very knowledgeable of the general construction business, permitting requirements and building codes of multiple states and counties. They clearly understand the ‘Customer First’ relationship. I highly recommend Cambridge Construction for professional, expert construction services.”
“Cambridge’s staff performed remarkably well during pre-construction by providing creative solutions, a positive team approach, and open lines of communication. While designing our solution, Cambridge demonstrated knowledge of applicable systems and creative thinking. The construction was marked by excellent quality, and focused schedule discipline…The construction team has been outstanding on both projects. Both PM’s proved to be experts in their fields. Their coordination and management of the subcontractors was excellent. When problems arose, they positively ensured the problems were quickly, and effectively, resolved.”
