Our Testimonials

Since the structure was to be built entirely of concrete, we sought out the best concrete contractor we could find. Overaa was recommended to us as hands down the best concrete contractor in the area. Our remarkable and delightful collaboration with Overaa in building the basic structure enables us to recommend Overaa in the highest terms, for a wide variety of reasons.

The Mayor’s Summer Youth Employment Program is very important to the youth of our City. None of this would be possible without the nurturing support of companies like Overaa.

The City has had a long relationship with Overaa and, coincidentally, they helped us (City of Richmond) celebrate our 100th anniversary last year. They (Overaa) have helped Richmond to become the jewel that it is today.  They stayed here in the area, demonstrating their loyalty while enhancing the quality of life in Richmond.  Overaa is truly a stalwart business.  I salute you.

Overaa is a real Bay Area success story.  Their presence can be seen in almost every major city in the Bay Area.  They're incredibly well-respected for playing an integral role in the positive growth and development of our community.  And they're well known for their corporate philanthropy towards issues that are important to local communities such as youth development and civic empowerment.

As in most renovation projects many hidden and unforeseen conditions were discovered. In addition the client made numerous changes in finishes and material selections. The project provided multiple opportunities for Overaa Construction to claim extra cost due to errors and omissions in the plans or unforeseen conditions discovered in the work. Overaa instead chose to complete the project without claims and within the established budget, in spite of significant delays which were beyond their control.

On behalf of the City project team, I want to express our great appreciation for the work accomplished by Overaa and your sub-contractors on the City Hall building, which houses the City's administrative offices, including the Mayor and City Manager, at the newly renovated Civic Center. The reviews are in and very positive from all quarters. The building looks phenomenal inside and out, and is performing as designed.

When one considers the complexity of this project: seismic and water intrusion issues; historical issues; LEED certification; and a very demanding and picky owner, Overaa and the whole project team can be very proud of what has been accomplished – on time and on budget. I especially want to thank you and your team for the outstanding collaboration and coordination with other contractors and various City departments and vendors involved in the project. You and your staff proved to be creative problem solvers, which was essential to the success in this major retrofit and renovation project.

During preconstruction a major Value Engineering effort was undertaken to remove approximately $900,000 from the budget without significant change to the project program or appearance. In spite of numerous setbacks, Overaa met the client’s aggressive, 13 month schedule, and at close-out provided the client with a refund of $284,000 below the established Guaranteed Maximum Price.

It was a pleasure to work with Overaa Construction Company who placed their reputation ahead of the extra fee they could have earned on unsolicited change orders. I would be pleased to work with Overaa at any time in the future and would be happy to recommend them to anyone looking for an experienced and professional contractor who is honest and who takes pride in their work.
