"The Mascaro construction team was the main stay to make this relationship happen – Dealing with the trade unions – the subcontractors, the minorities and the political leadership was no easy task – Mascaro Construction came through brilliantly. Mr. Jack Mascaro and his team have my personal appreciation for such a successful project – Maybe the best to have happened in Allegheny County in many years."

"As with any project, specifically one of this size, inherently difficult schedule and associated challenges, there were numerous issues and conditions that arose that could have quickly derailed the successful completion of the project. ... Consequently, as a result of their dedication, commitment, professionalism, professional staff, coordination, teamwork, and their 'build with the best' attitude, the project was a success as demonstrated by the numerous awards and accolades received from the professional community."

"After demonstrating their value as a construction management team that can complete projects on time and within budget, Mascaro Construction Company has become a valued partner in our preconstruction planning efforts."

"From Mascaro's initial involvement, their professional team of managers worked diligently with the Marshall staff and design team to create a project that met both the budget and program requirements. During the construction phase, they met every challenge with a can-do attitude and excelled in every category; design and craftsmanship, project teamwork, innovation and most importantly, client service. The on-site staff and project management team were truly a pleasure to work with."
Ronald J. May
Director, Facilities Planning & Management
"Mascaro's internal estimating expertise including mechanical, electrical, and plumbing estimating has been critical to the success of these projects by providing the University and design professionals with real time cost estimates to aid in the project design management. The detailed estimates along with their constructability expertise, have been integral in identifying 'value engineering' as the design progresses rather than after the design is complete."

"Mascaro operated in an open, honest and cooperative manner throughout the project both at a corporate level and onsite. ... Mascaro performed as the General Trades Prime Contractor with four other primes. Their leadership resulted in the completion of the project on the original date. The building was completed within budget and with no claims. This is remarkable for a project of this complexity valued at $120 million. Mascaro is the best contractor I have been involved with in my forty (40) years in this industry."

"The construction of the University of Pittsburgh's Biomedical Science Tower 3 involved a tremendous amount of coordination between the contractor, owner, equipment installers, and building users. Mascaro Construction clearly paid attention to both the big picture and the details in order to construct this complicated and elegantly designed facility. ... The last stop on our tour was the mechanical mezzanine where multiple HVAC systems are located. This huge mechanical area, while not open to the public, showed the same amount of care to construction quality that was evident throughout."

"While working in the field the last 25 years with many different general contractors, I always felt that Mascaro was the most courteous, professional and union friendly. When choosing a design/built contractor for our office and training center, we discussed no other contractors but Mascaro because of your strong commitment toward building trade unions. ... From office personnel to field personnel, Mascaro delivered."

"Our project was a design/build job. Mascaro is a very competent and trustworthy contractor that has the ability through their staff to handle whatever problems arise throughout the length of the project and complete it on time and within budget."

"You made a wise decision in your selection of Mascaro. It was apparent through our discussions with the subs that they are well respected within the construction community in Pittsburgh. The discussions further revealed that Mascaro had dealt with the subs in a manner that resulted in us having the top two Mechanical and Electrical subcontractors in the Pittsburgh area in the costing meetings. The final selection will be difficult because they all are highly qualified and competent. It is a pleasure to work with a contractor that understands and practices the team approach. We look forward to finishing WPXI with you and Mascaro."
