My Martin Horn career began in 1986 working summers from college break as a laborer. I began working full time in 1988, and after a few years was given the opportunity to be a superintendent and eventually project manager. Now it’s thirty-five years later and I’ve had the privilege of overseeing some landmark Charlottesville projects like Kenwood Library at Monticello, the Renovation of Montalto, and the UVA Baseball Stadium. I have been truly blessed to be a part of the Martin Horn family.

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.

Martin Horn provided a respectable roster of subcontractors for the skate park project, and skillfully managed them to achieve this completion despite some unusual headwinds. It is always my preference to work with local contractors. They care more about Charlottesville, and they care what Charlottesville thinks of them. Having done three projects now with your team I have to say that Martin Horn is the best of the bunch. I have felt every time that we are all working towards the same goal when I work with your folks.
