“David was responsible for facilities coordination at Cuyamaca College at the time that we were building our new Science & Technology Center. He was responsible for coordination between the new building occupants and the construction management and worked with us through both the design and construction phases (By the way, there were three buildings under construction at the same time, and he was handling all of them). David was great to work with, a great communicator and problem solver, very detail oriented, efficient, clearly knows about the construction business and is not afraid to ask questions to ensure that the product is going to meet the needs of the customer. I have been involved in numerous construction projects over the last 20 years, and I found David to be one of the best people I have worked with. I recommend him without reservation and would be happy to talk in more detail with anyone considering his services.”

Project Overview: Install fuel management system at 64 construction and operation centers throughout Southern California

“Lou Suter did a great job for us as Project Manager for the Fuel Management/Telemetrics system. There are still a number of internal tasks for us to complete within Fleet (primarily installation of data collection devices on vehicles), but the facilities work is done and Lou will be wrapping up his involvement with the project on April 30. His tenacity and diligence is pursuing all aspects of the project (from fuel island terminal installations in far flung areas of the company's service area to debugging wiring issues on fuel tankers) resulted in it being completed on time and within budget.”

“In over 10 years working with CBSI, my experience has always been one of professionalism and attention to detail. The hard working project management team lead by David Suter has been a pleasure to work with.”

Director of Facilities Planning & Development
Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District

“From our experience on the Cuyamaca College campus, we have found David Suter and his staff at CBSI to be an effective and professional organization which delivers on its promises. CBSI has the technical ability and experience to work on any type commercial project (i.e. public, private, new construction, or an existing facility). They are also able to understand and take specific owner needs and effectively coordinate these requirements with design professionals and trade contractors to ensure that the end product meets or exceeds client expectations. We have found David Suter and CBSI to be honest, friendly and would complement any project and its team members. We look forward to continuing our relationship on future projects.”

Project Overview: Energy efficiency energy upgrades for 33 operation centers throughout Southern California

“I thank CBSI each week for their help, but wanted to thank you for assigning them to the energy project. Especially Lou and Dan, who routinely demonstrate their competency and their ability to make things happen and get things done. I would be happy to have them assigned to any project that I’m involved with…

…Although there will be undoubtedly some small snags along the way, I have no doubt that the team will resolve them, and that this project will be an overwhelming success.”

Energy Programs Manager

“Lou and Dan, I want to commend and thank you on your persistence, organization and detail in launching the lighting upgrades project. Achieving an endorsement from Chris is a very positive accomplishment and we want to maintain this through project completion. Hopefully, the site managers will feel the same way when we are done.

Keep up the good work, particularly the communication.”

Project Overview: Utility company fleet garage and wash deck improvements

“I would just like to say a few words about the way Lou Suter and Dan Nielsen have handled the projects at Beach Cities / Metro.

They have been professional, courteous, responsive and diligent in all areas, and at all times, throughout the duration of the projects. They have gone above and beyond” in what I would have expected of them.

Simply put, it has been a pleasure to work with them.”

“Today, we had our last meeting with Consolidated Building Systems, and ABC Construction recapping the project to date. I want to thank Lou Suter and Gregg Ferreira for their professional direction in conducting this major construction activity at Metro C&O. Safety and Environmental were our top priorities, but disruption of our busy operation center was paramount during the last nine months. Lou and Gregg paid special attention to operations assuring nominal inconvenience during construction. To be on budget and on time was an added bonus. I've worked with many consultants, architects and builders over the last 35 years, and it is a certain pleasure working with Lou and Gregg who provided organizational attention to details. Thank you.”
