“I came to EAB after working with EAB across the table as both a general contractor and as a commissioning agent with another firm. The quality of work product that EAB delivered was unmatched. The impression EAB left on the owners and contractors was that they went above and beyond anyone in the industry. It was an easy decision to come aboard.” – Dan Eckelkamp
