“dsi has provided reliable, insightful, and valuable support to my real estate agency and construction services responsibilities in the Chicago area. During the fast-paced and dynamic needs of the Chicago Charter Schools, dsi provided responsible project management services that allowed me to make and execute on decisions that impacted the lives of about 8,000 students and their families in Chicago’s Hispanic community.

Your ability to support multi-project efforts to deliver a $100 million overall capital improvement program, including individual projects of both new construction and existing facility renovation types, with aggressive schedules and cost limitations was important to the success of these new educational facilities. In addition, dsi’s ability to capture, analyze, and maintain financial data and organize other information for a broad variety of uses, proved valuable as the program came to a close.

Should the need ever arise in the future, I would not hesitate to engage dsi again or to recommend them to others who might need construction management services.”

“In 2014 I had the privilege of assisting Ms Susanne Hogan in the preparation of a construction claim for Northwest General Contractors of Glen Ellyn, IL. The claim regarded the contractor’s position on a project for Metropolitan Water Reclamation District (MWRD) of Greater Chicago. MWRD took the position that the contractor was at fault for a significant number of days of delay to the completion of the project. Under Ms Hogan’s leadership our claims resolution team was able to justify all instances of delays that were presented against our client and defend the contractor’s arguments of no fault in the delay challenges. Ms Hogan showed absolute resolve to not only challenge the accusations of delay but to drill down to pertinent facts proving that in fact the contractor was due consideration for impediments to completing the project on time. The success of this effort can be attributed directly to the direction and leadership of Ms Hogan. I strongly recommend her as a tenacious team member.”
