What our clients are saying about us...

It was a pleasure working with Calspan on the creation of our new Mohs Surgery Center building.  They helped us with every step of the way from project conception to the finished building.  They kept us informed every step of the way and assisted in all of the key decisions that made the project a success for our business.  Construction projects can be very stressful, but Calspan made the whole process seamless for us.  We look forward to working with them again on our next construction project.  I highly recommend them for your construction needs.

Dr. Michael Nazareth // Founder and CEO // wnyderm.com

The reasons I continue to choose Calspan for my physician Medical Office and Ambulatory Surgery Center development projects are pretty simple – they deliver a beautiful building, on time and on budget. But, how they do that is what keeps me coming back, including: great communication – a perfect balance of strategic and progress updates, without the burden of stressful details; amazing ability to deliver on attractive financing; and most importantly, at the end of the project I have happy shareholders!
