Take a walk around the University of Virginia, stroll the Downtown Mall in Charlottesville, or drive out any country road in Central Virginia, and you’re likely to see a Martin Horn project. Apartment buildings, amphitheaters, hospitals, homes, churches, schools, stadiums: We build stuff.
Over the last forty years, we’ve built a company known for integrity, reliability, and skilled management. When owners have challenging jobs, they call Martin Horn. We believe in this community and enjoy being an active part of it.
I have now worked with Martin Horn on two significant renovation projects and each time they were a pleasure to work with, extending professionalized guidance and high quality general contracting services at a reasonable cost.
I would highly recommend Martin Horn to any business considering new construction or renovation projects, you will not be disappointed!
Martin Horn is a complete and comprehensive general contracting company with the ability to handle highly complicated and sophisticated projects, along with straight-forward simple projects. They are highly qualified at all levels of the organization from project management to each member of their team in the field. I have also found them to be very proficient in a design-build approach to construction.
Interviewing a firm other than Martin Horn for our 2nd project in Charlottesville was a mere formality. My standards are high – as expected, the work was done beautifully and on time.
I’ve been involved in commercial construction for over 30 years as project manager, estimator and now an owner’s representative. I’ve worked for many general contractor’s in those years and in my opinion Martin Horn is the finest contractor I’ve ever worked for and with.
I had had the pleasure of working with Martin Horn, Inc. on a recent interior renovation at one of our Assisted Living Communities. Their Project Team kept the project running seamlessly and finished the work ahead of schedule. They accommodated all of our requests and the Residents in our Community could not believe how quiet they were. The finished product is of the highest quality. I will seek out Martin Horn, Inc. again for any future construction projects.

I want to thank you for your company’s exceptional work on completing our camp’s pavilion shelter in time for our opening this season. Not only did you keep the costs extremely low, but you also made a significant donation to the camp. You have our heartfelt thanks for this unexpected generosity.
As the past months have shown, your company can meet critical completions, no matter how tight the schedule. I was pleased to see your supervisors support not only your contractual obligations but also make sure that the extra effort and cooperative attitude was there to provide a quality product.
With less than complete drawings and specifications, Martin Horn realized all of the goals, on time and within budget. Your professionalism, flexibility, and honesty, although anonymous to many, earns “a job well done” from all who benefited from your talents.
Faced with a challenging project, our most important step was to select a reliable construction company. We chose Martin Horn and that turned out to be one of our first good decisions. We will always hold Martin Horn in high regard.
I want to express our deep admiration for the work done by the crew from Martin Horn. Both inside and outside, the renovations preserve the look of our building, which is on the National Historic Registry.
Martin Horn has been doing a fantastic job. If it were not for you, this project would be a failure. Thanks.
The pressures for a successful completion of the pavilion were tremendous. If it were not for the commitment, extreme dedication, and ingenuity of Martin Horn, I don’t know how we would have accomplished what we did. We have the utmost respect for this firm and its people.
I am writing to acknowledge the outstanding efforts and Mike McNulty and the Martin Horn crew. Over the weekend, they began the repairs to the Imaging Center that were caused by the flooding in early July. Their first order of business was to relocate my office and the business office to ensure they were functional when we arrived at work this morning, and then to begin the work in the patient care area with minimal disruption to our operations. When we arrived this morning, everything was in order – even the PCs were hooked up and ready to go. Their commitment to doing their job without impacting our ability to do ours was tremendous, and I wanted to pass along my gratitude.
I have been involved in many construction projects over the years, where the crews were not at all sensitive to the operations going on around them, and the impact of their insensitivity hindered and challenged our operations. That has certainly not been the case with any aspect of this project, making their work ethic and conduct extremely noteworthy.
Once again I am pleased to write you with our thanks for a great job by your firm. The project team did a great job bringing this emergency project to a timely, cost-efficient, and successful completion. Although I know you were busy with other planned work, your team complete the job with the diligence and expertise that are your trademark.
Thank you for your cooperation, responsiveness, and “teamwork approach” in helping the University bring this project to a successful conclusion. We look forward to an opportunity to work with your firm in the future.
Martin Horn in my judgment is the best. The cooperation was very good and I appreciate a very fine job done. If I ever need any more work done at any time Martin Horn will be my contractor.
Martin/Horn was a champion, as far as coming up with, ‘Here are the options, here are the things we can do, now let’s move forward and get this done.’
It is with great pleasure that I write to you about Jeff Sims and Mike Rabinowitz as well as about my experience at The Barringer. Jeff’s organizational skills and attention to detail are outstanding, however his people skills are what set him apart from others in the industry. His special quality with the public makes Subcontractors want to work hard and provide him with what he needs to manage a project. He is also wonderful with the customers as he is soft spoken and patient and very knowledgeable. Mike is capable of keeping track of more items than just about anyone in the industry. Like Jeff, his people skills are outstanding. A company would be lucky to have both Jeff and Mike on the same project. Joe and I feel very fortunate.
My experience at The Barringer has been wonderful. I have worked with new developments for over 15 years and I can honestly say that the punch out walk throughs at The Barringer have been some of the best. The finish detail is excellent and the attitude of the Martin Horn employees is extremely positive.
We knew from the beginning that we needed a very special builder to make the dream of returning Kenridge into our home a reality. After years of Kenridge being a fraternity headquarters, it was a significant challenge! We were most fortunate that Martin Horn agreed to work with us. Under the careful planning and creative talent of Pete Schauss it was impossible to tell where new work and historic work met. Materials and the historic quality of custom construction were respected and new mechanical systems were carefully added. We continue to tell people and to be impressed that we moved in on time and on budget and that we could not be happier.

In October 2004, Martin Horn Inc. was selected as the general contractor for the build-out of our new space in the Federal Building in Charlottesville, Virginia. From the beginning of our work with the people from Martin Horn, we were very impressed with their responsiveness and professionalism. We had to make several changes to our original plans due to changing security requirements. Martin Horn was able to make these changes and still stay on schedule. We were able to move into our new space in April 2005.
The quality of the workmanship and finishes throughout our new space is excellent. Martin Horn has stood by their work and quickly accomplished punch list items. Our new space is immeasurably better than our old location.
Martin/Horn is the best contractor I’ve ever worked with.
The University of Virginia generates an awful lot of work for an awful lot of people. Our Hospital Expansion project created many spin-off projects that needed to be completed quickly and “on-time” and “without-fail.” Our 1222 JPA project was a building full of just these kinds of short fuse projects. Thank goodness we managed to get Martin Horn to function as the Construction Manager for fifteen of the 1222 JPA separate contracts over a two and an half year period. The last project in 1222 JPA was the 3rd floor University Medical Associates project or 2.1 million dollars of work completed right on time in a four month period of time. Thank you Martin Horn Inc. for keeping us successful with our projects.
I received your contact information from Lindsay Milby over at the Randolph in Charlottesville. We just moved into the building last week, and I just wanted to take a moment to let you know what a great experience we had working with Rudolf Mendincino from your team. Dolf was incredibly responsive, and displayed a real passion for his work that you don’t run across everyday. As the COO of my company, I understand the importance of taking care of customers, and people like Dolf are extremely valuable in that environment. I never would have expected him to go the extra mile the way he did, especially the week between Christmas and New Years when I know he didn’t have a full team in place. But he did just that and then some.
He is a great representative of your organization, and gives us every confidence in the construction work performed by your whole team. While we had a punch list that needed to be taken care of, I know it will get done, and even more importantly, I feel good that your team has put together a great building that we’ll enjoy for many years to come.
May the future bring you much success, and I hope that you will embrace Dolf as a very valuable asset.
Martin Horn’s performance in the fast track construction of UVA’s new Baseball Stadium was exceptional. This new $5 Million facility was simply an idea in mid June 2001 with a desired completion before the next season’s opener in mid February 2002. Acting as a Construction Manager through design and construction Martin Horn, with exemplary professional competence and integrity, partnered with the UVA and VMDO (UVA’s designer) allowing early release, pricing and construction of phased packages achieving the desired completion 8 months after design start without sacrifice of quality or price. In fact this facility received the Central VA AIA Merit award for design in 2003.
Mike McNulty did an excellent job. So did Dennis. The project was on schedule. I look forward to the next phase with Martin Horn at TJVC.

On January 22nd, Martin Horn had a bittersweet send-off to a long-time employee, Suzanne Moubray, who retired after 15 years of service to the organization. Suzanne was an important piece of what has made Martin Horn the company it is today. We will miss her dearly. Suzanne’s office sat near the front door, and directly next […]
