"Driving around Jonesboro, I noticed some very positive actions taken by developers or owners I feel deserve recognition for improving Jonesboro's image. I am sure that there are others, but this day I took note of three. These businesses are projecting a ' positive image of our Community, and I want to offer my applause for their self-initiated work. Thank you, Ramson's Construction Co., for the capital improvements to their building and brick fence. You have improved the Dan street entry way into Jonesboro.
We need more businesses and individuals to follow your lead. Thank you to 505 Medical Center on Matthews for turning asphalt into trees and green. Several years ago, we said that we wanted Jonesboro to be known as clean and green. You are making a difference. Thank you to Beltz-Burrow for the beautifully maintained landscape and especially the bronze sculptures at the entry way to all your commercial areas.
Through your actions you have said Jonesboro is a good place to live and work. So often we complain about our community's appearance. I just wanted to say thanks to those of you that are trying to make Jonesboro positively reflect the good people that live in the community, so thank you and keep up the good work."

"It has been my pleasure to work directly with Danny McDaniel as
construction manager on two major school construction projects.
I represented the school in planning the facilities and the
day-to-day dealings with the architects and contractors during the
construction phase of the building projects. I believe I can
speak with great confidence to the working relationship with Mr.
McDaniel on those projects.
The construction management process was essential in accomplishing renovations and new classroom additions in both projects. Mr. McDaniel was involved from the ground up in the design of the projects. His expertise in analyzing costs helped us make decisions from the beginning that would keep the projects within limited budgets. There were no surprises when bids were taken on the projects. As a matter of fact, the final costs on one of the projects were well below the initial bids. The teamwork on the front end with Mr. McDaniel, the architects and school personnel made this possible.
Both projects involved extensive renovations with more than 450 elementary students present during much of the construction phase. Mr. McDaniel's input on the front end made it possible to approach the construction in phases with minimum disruption to the day-to-day operation of the schools.
Without the flexibility afforded with construction management. I do not believe the projects would have been completed in a timely manner within the appropriated budgets. I am very pleased with the working relationship and the support provided by Danny McDaniel. I highly recommend that you give Mr. McDaniel as construction manager your utmost consideration. Please feel free to contact me if you need additional information."

"We have had the pleasure of working with Ramson's Construction Company on many projects in the past several years and have known them for about twenty years. Their reputation in the community is excellent and I have always heard good things about them from others in the construction industry.
On our projects, they have consistently finished ahead of schedule and have done an excellent quality job. They are a good team player and will work with you to resolve any unforeseen problems that may arise.
Ramson's has a varied experience in industrial, institutional and commercial work with strong financial strength. I don't believe you could make a better selection for a contractor in this area."
