We feel that Performance Services just had a better approach to the facility study process which sets them apart. Additionally, we didn't have to invest any initial dollars into the study. We were impressed with the input Performance Services gave us from the planning phase all the way throughout the project because we didn't experience that with other companies. Performance Services made us part of the solution. We've done numerous projects with Performance Services that really turned out well, and we didnâ't have surprise change order costs. When they talk about guaranteed pricing, they stick to that and we really appreciate that.
