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.
