Communication has been a key component in keeping our building project on schedule and moving forward. But by far the most important quality the Touchstone team has is their honesty and integrity. They are truthful AND realistic. During the CMR interview process of three top-notch firms,Touchstone's honest opinions of how long it would take to complete Apollo's project was a deciding factor for me personally.

Judy Wells
Superintendent, Apollo Career Center

While operating under the construction manager at risk model (CMAR), Touchstone treated the financial arrangements, including interpretation of the GMP, as flexibly as possible to ensure the district received the maximum benefit from tax dollars raised for the project. In short, Touchstone allowed us to maintain buenefits found in the old CM agency model while taking advantage of the benefits of the new CMAR model.

Superintendent, Bath Local Schools

I am certain that whatever changes may come down the pike in school construction, Touchstone will maintain a maximum sensitivity to owner concerns in an effort to ensure that taxpayers get the most out of their investment.

Linda Ruiz-Bringman
Superintendent, Woodmore Local Schools

Touchstone CPM has made it their priority to respond quickly to our requests, answer our questions, and have been flexible and attentive to details ensuring that our collaborative effort will become reality. They have worked extremely well with our architectural firms of Garmann/Miller and RCM and most importantly, with representatives of the school district and the Board of Education.

Dr. Dean Wittwer
Superintendent, Findlay City Schools

I have experienced the Touchstone team spending countless hours guiding our District’s new PK-12, 189,000 sq. ft. building project. They advised, guided, and supported our efforts beginning with the pre-election planning phase of our project… With the help of TCPM’s leadership, we have built our project under budget and within the schedule developed.

Michael W. Richards
Superintendent, Allen East Local Schools

I would classify our recently completed 135,000 SF elementary project as a model of cooperation and efficiency. The project was completed early and under budget, and there was virtually no conflict throughout the construction process.

Michael R. Struble
Superintendent, Defiance City Schools

This was a complicated project due to the fact there were 47,000 square feet of new construction and 244,000 square feet of renovation. Touchstone CPM’s personnel, management, organizational and scheduling skills were exemplary. This was especially demonstrated by the fact that we were able to maintain a normal school day and school year throughout the project.

Richard A. Seas
Superintendent, Coldwater Exempted Village Schools

Throughout the project, Touchstone CPM has demoonstrated the highest degree of technical competence, timeliness with regard to schedules, and responsiveness to project issues.

At every turn Touchstone CPM's personnel made themselves available to guide the district through the entire project, including the recommendations for awarding contracts through the reconciliation of the project budget for purposes of a timely closeout.
