October 18th, 2018 Nelson Electric Inc Dear Rob, I wanted to personally thank you and your entire team for the excellent work on the recently completed renovation of the Embassy Suites Hotel in Bloomington MN. We have been renovating hotels across the country for over 48 years. You’re your team is by far the best electrical firm I have worked with. The Embassy project is a prime example of why we are successful due to quality sub-contractors like your firm. The attention to detail, problem solving skills, ability to look ahead, and can-do attitude from top to bottom in your staff is rarely found in contracting firms. The supervision, knowledge, and quality you provide on a project are what make it successful and is evidenced by the minimal list of punch items and your quick response in resolving the items that were outstanding. Your staff especially Mike & Jim have done what I consider a spectacular job and they should be commended for it. Rob, it is a pleasure for us to work with Nelson Electric Inc and we look forward to future projects. I will be glad to let other clients know how lucky and pleased they would be to work with a company like Nelson Electric. I wish you and your wonderful company continued success. All the best, Samuel E Cicero President Cicero’s Development Corporation
