**GarzaBury, LLC is now Garza EMC, LLC. We are 100% minority owned and the above certificates are still recognized by the certification agencies.
We were closing in on completion of the project, and the project manager was instrumental in getting the project to that point. He was proactive and extremely helpful to me as I merged onto the team with GarzaBury, the Contractor, and the Owner’s reps.
I have found [Garza] team members to be thorough, professional, responsive to our needs, and pro-active regarding issues that arise that need attention. As a result of my experience with them, I have referred other architects to them for consulting work.
