“SEC built a Mattress Firm in Concord, NC for Tribek Properties this year. Their team was proactive from the beginning as they communicated directly with the tenant and the city to solve any construction issues and to meet a very tight schedule. Their professionalism was evident to all who encountered them. Mattress Firm’s construction manager commented on how smooth the job had gone. This “smoothness” was created by SEC being prepared in the field and in the office. I look forward to working with SEC in the near future.” – Scott C. Bortz, Tribek Properties
