  • 19. “In over 10 years working with CBSI, my experience has always been one of professionalism and attention to detail. The hard working pro- ject management team led by David Suter has been a pleasure to work with.” Dale Switzer Director of Facilities Planning & Development Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District “David was responsible for facilities coordination at Cuyamaca Col- lege at the time that we were building our new Science & Technology Center. He was responsible for coordination between the new build- ing occupants and the construction management and worked with us through both the design and construction phases (By the way, there were three buildings under construction at the same time, and he was handling all of them). David was great to work with, a great com- municator and problem solver, very detail oriented, efficient, clearly knows about the construction business and is not afraid to ask ques- tions to ensure that the product is going to meet the needs of the customer. I have been involved in numerous construction projects over the last 20 years and I found David to be one of the best people I have worked with. I recommend him without reservation and would be happy to talk in more detail with anyone considering his services.” Kathryn Nette, Biology Chair, Cuyamaca CollegeGrossmont College Exercise Science Complex 2008Relocation Management What Our Clients are Saying
