"...Bob and his team built the new 4th Street Brewery during the 2008 calendar year. This building includes an 11,000 square foot restaurant and an in-house brewery. It was completed on time and below budget by Dovetail Construction...Bob was the key factor in completing the porject on time. I was most impressed with Bob's ability to work with sub-contractors and get them to meet deadlines without subsequent change order process that only adds cost...We are most happy with Dovetail and have hired them to build the Condo portion of the project... Bob and Dovail are winners..."

"In 2006, Beacon Light, Inc launched its first location at the Gresham Village Shopping Center... We have since built 5 additional locations with the experience of Bob Battles at Dovetail Construction as our hired General Contractor. We have never regretted our decision as we have grown our business with Dovetail.

The quality of Bob's finish work, the command of his sub-contractors and his ability to deliver a finished project on schedule has allowed us to maintain an aggressive pace with our new openings... I know that any issues we might have will be resolved with a phone call to Bob. In short, we feel Dovetail Construction offers us great value and predictability. I demand insight, cost saving ideas and timeliness from Bob and I am never disappointed with his results."
