Re: Bonding
Orlind Construction, Inc. has spent considerable time and money recently to build an organization and take the steps necessary to permit it to grow in a reasonable manner.  The contractor is utilizing some tools that the Surety has recommended including but not limited to the use of Funds Administrative Services to help it improve its operations and help Orlind Construction, Inc. manage its cash flow in a more efficient manner.  In summary, it is my opinion that Orlind Construction, Inc. is a qualified contractor that is working closely with its Surety, Bank, CPA and other professionals to build a quality company.

Re: Berridge Shop, Chasis Wash Building, SEPTA
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to provide you with Ms. Linda Orr[’s] performance evaluation in my project as Construction Manager.  To be a Contractor and an owner at the same time in a construction project requires a lot of dedication and experience in managing material and manpower flow including the business aspect of the project.  Considering the quality of work performed, judgement made, and her creativity and ability to work under pressure in a complex project, Ms. Orr is a well capable project manager.  That’s how I appraise Ms. Orr when she completed the Berridge Shop Parts and Chasis Wash Building project.  Although the project was delayed for no fault of her own the project was completed with minimal change order.  Ms. Linda Orr is recommendable to perform various construction management tasks.
