Unlike other contractors that have come to the Navajo Nation, Kitchell truly cares about integrity, quality control and maximizing Navajo employment. Kitchell’s approach to structuring the work and pre-qualification programs go above and beyond in making sure that Navajo subcontractors get the opportunity to work on large and small contracts. You have proven that you can do what other contractors say they can do but don’t – employ our people and bring quality construction to Indian Country. Kitchell has set the benchmark for safety, speed and superior workmanship utilizing the local workforce.
Kitchell’s close-out process is exemplary and exhaustive which makes bringing a building “online” less than a struggle than you’d imagine. In addition to closely coordinating our phased occupancy schedule, as well as with several agencies of jurisdiction for the full testing electrical, mechanical, gaming, surveillance and life safety systems, they also coordinated all Owner training and the establishment and monitoring of a Warranty Service Program for 24/7 response. I can rest assured that the answer to any possible question we might have down the road is included in these materials.

Kitchell’s team worked well with the design team in solving the multitude of day-to-day problems, and completed all of the projects on time and at less than their respective Guaranteed Maximum Price.

Throughout the course of Cardon Children’s Medical Center, Kitchell excelled in various aspects including (but not limited to) adherence to the established budget and schedule while providing the type of quality desired by the owner… The way they conduct business and develop and maintain relationships with the facility staff were a significant factor in the success and I would recommend their participation in future projects of mine.

The days spent in the hospital can be very long and boring for a child. With the gifts that you provided, patients can have fun and distraction that ease parents’ minds by making their children happy. Your kindness and generosity will live on for years to come through the children who will enjoy these gifts.
I continue to be impressed by Kitchell’s passion, expertise, sophistication and overall knowledge. In all senses of the term, this is a true High Performance partnership and the benefits have been extraordinary.

Kitchell was attentive to staying on top of this project and their "daily due diligence" to clarifications and construction issues helped facilitate the tight schedule for completion.
Winton Architects (KPNX relocation)
What impressed me the most about Kitchell’s QA/QC is just how brutally tough and thorough its third party inspectors are on work performed by the company. I was awed by the reports sent to us. I’ve seen plenty of field reports from architects and have never seen such detailed reviews and reports or tracking mechanisms so comprehensive.
It has been a personal pleasure for me to work with hardison/downey/kitchell on this challenging development and I look forward to our next project together. I will certainly recommend hdk's services for other developments.
