"I wanted to let you know how delightful it has been working with you and your staff on the construction of the new Museum wing. In my career, I have built or remodeled five museum buildings across the U.S. This has been one of the easiest and most pleasant construction projects I have ever been involved with thanks to you and your staff."
Dr. John Schloder, Director, Museum of Fine Arts St. Petersburg
"The level of professionalism demonstrated by Hennessy Construction Services from the original bidding process to the completion of the project has been nothing short of outstanding."

"I have worked with Hennessy Construction Services' Team for many years at St. Anthony's Hospital and want to write you to express my deep gratitude for the way in which Hennessy continues to provide us with quality jobs. Due to the nature of our facility, sick patients are always in our building. The level of Infection Control safeguards needed to protect these patients, the level of planning, oversight, and execution of these safeguards is extremely high. Hennessy has the staff who understands these needs and does a wonderful job to ensure that the hospital remains safe and operational throughout the construction process."
John Nicely, Director, Support Services, St. Anthony's Health Care
"I just wanted to say a big "Thank You!" to you for the essential part you played in creating Tuscana Ristorante, our new "drop dead gorgeous" restaurant! Superb craftsmanship is evident in every detail, from the initial planning right through the final construction. This beautiful facility will be admired and enjoyed for many years to come."
Dr. Mark Rutland, President, Southeastern University
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your firm for the outstanding job that you have done in the building of the new Childs Park YMCA facility. During the pre-construction phase, your estimator, Gary New, demonstrated remarkable knowledge of the project and his projection of the budget was outstanding. As the construction phase of the project started, Hennessy's project manager, Brad Kunz, and project superintendent, Rick Peffers, did a fantastic job controlling the costs and keeping the subcontractors on a very strict schedule.
Clearly your staff went out of your way in every aspect. We could not have asked for a better firm to work with on this very important project for the YMCA."
David W. Jezek, President/CEO, YMCA of Greater St. Petersburg
"I wanted to write to let you know a couple of things on behalf of the Staff and myself here at the Sallie House. Your staff, especially Al Marr and John Crum, was outstanding in everything they did for us in our new building project. I have completed 5 buildings now with The Salvation Army and this was by far the best experience I have ever had. I would attribute that to Al and John. They were professional in their dealings with us as well as the sub-contractors your company uses. Thanks to them I was able to reach my goal of moving the children out of the old facility building and into the brand new facility before the Christmas holiday, and for that I am eternally grateful, the children love the new building."
Roger P. Windell, Program Manager, The Salvation Army Sallie House
"It has been a truly rewarding experience working with you and with the Hennessy team. Good architecture only happens when the designers and the builders work integrally as a team, and with yours, Mark's and Rob's leadership working with Will, Eddie and me, we have succeeded far beyond the expectations of the Museum. I too look forward to our next effort together."
Yann Weymouth, AIA, Senior Vice President, HOK Architecture
"As President of Mason Blau & Associates, Inc. and as Project Architect for the above-referenced project, I want you to know how much I enjoyed working on this project with you and all the rest of your staff from Hennessy Construction. For my part, I can attest to your skill, construction competency, knowledge, professionalism and thoroughness in all aspects of the project. Thanks to the entire team for helping make The Salvation Army a successful project."

"FleischmanGarcia Architecture recently completed the Spa Oceana, a very challenging and complex addition to the historic Don CeSar Hotel on St. Petersburg Beach, with Hennessy Construction Services. The 11,000 SF, 3-story addition attached to the existing, fully-occupied and operating hotel, required strategic planning and careful execution while maintaining the safety and security of the hotel guests and staff. The Hennessy team of professional did an outstanding job.
We consider Hennessy one of the best construction management firms in the Tampa Bay area, and we recommend them without qualification."

"I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for the outstanding performance by Hennessy's project team during the development and construction of Drs. Demasi and Kondapalli 2-story Medical Office Building, recently completed in Venice, Florida. Your team worked diligently to complete the work on-time and maintain quality with courtesy and respect shown to everyone."
Michael Hart, AIA, Executive Vice President, Harvard Jolly, Inc.
Just stopped to take a look at the building from all four sides. Wow! You guys are building a great looking building and doing a super job of managing the process to the betterment of the community. I have appreciated your "responsiveness" and the public relations help you have given us through this process.
Jeff Weatherhead, Westminster Communities
I have worked with Hennessy on many projects over the years and have not been disappointed yet. This is a true testament to the quality of both your staff and the work they perform for your clients. I truly look forward to our next successful project.
Tim Ackerman, Vice President - Buildings and Grounds, YMCA of the Suncoast, Inc.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation and complete satisfaction for the work Hennessy Construction performed as General Contractor for the addition and renovation of the Belleair Country Club. Having been involved in the Real Estate Development and Construction business for over 30 years, I am aware of the many unexpected problems you encountered in the renovation program. Considering the somewhat inadequate “as built” drawings which were supplied to you plus the numerous changes encountered during construction, you did well!
George L. Mallory, President, The Edgewater Group
The pro-active attitude displayed by Hennessy’s project estimator, Richard Frey, project manager, Robert Gibson, and the project superintendent, Russell Adams, was exceptional. They demonstrated the ability to foresee potential problem areas and took the necessary actions to provide sound alternative solutions so that small problems did not become major issues. . . . I am very pleased with the overall performance of this project, will recommend Hennessy Construction Services to anyone considering their services and look forward to working together again on future projects.
Timothy E. Renner , Vice President Real Estate and Development, Lifestyle Family Fitness speaking in regards to the Countryside Branch of Lifestyle Family Fitness
I want to take time to thank you and your staff for the very fine experience of the construction of our new campus. It has been such a pleasure working with all of the crew who took such pride in their work. I feel very fortunate to have had this experience, especially as I know major projects can generate major problems. It seem as though this one went almost as flawlessly as possible; and, the few problems that arose were handled professionally and courteously.
Cynthia H. Sinclair, President/CEO, Resurrection House
I just wanted to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude to you and your company for your outstanding work on the Carpenter Field Complex Addition and Renovation Project for the City of Clearwater and the Philadelphia Phillies.
