"Max South has completed several ground up shopping center construction projects for me over the last several years. While working as a team player with my design professionals and lenders, Max South, led by Rick Pitchman, far exceeded my expectations in every way. Of particular importance is the professional approach the entire team from Max South brings to the equation. Having been involved myself, for many years, in the construction industry, on the other side of the desk, I can speak from a unique frame of reference in this regard. While problems and issues always arise on any construction project, it is the 'can-do' attitude and calm approach that defines the culture within this fine South Florida construction firm. There is little doubt that any time I endeavor to take on a construction project, large or small, the first call will always go to Rick Pitchman at Max South."

"I write this letter as a recommendation to Max South Construction as a general contractor. I had the pleasure of working with the owner Mr. Rick Pitchman on the construction of our new two story 20,000 SF Corporate Office Park which included our Corporate Offices, Dental Center and Future Tenant Space. I recommend them highly and without reservation. I am expressing my appreciation for the excellent service that they provided.

As the Project Manager and Owner’s Representative, throughout the course of the project I worked closely with Mr. Pitchman and his team. They were very professional at all times. They showed honest concerned and in turn made this a successful project; both on time and under budget. They were clear in their record keeping and made many recommendations based on their experience to facilitate us in making proper decisions when issues arose that were not addressed on the plans and or specifications. They also facilitated many meetings with regulatory agencies to expedite the project and prevent additional cost. In other words, the construction team worked closely with me and the consultants making every effort to find solutions and make their recommendations as needed.

In addition to all this, they kept the job site clean and organized at all times. They took safety very seriously by insuring all workers had their proper documentation prior to entering on the site; including the subs hired by the owner directly.

The cooperation and collaboration during the construction phase resulted in a truly enjoyable project experience for everyone involved, a successful end result and a very please Owner. I look forward to the opportunity to work with Max South Construction again."

“It is our pleasure to recommend without reservation, Max South Construction, Inc. and its President, Rick Pitchman.

When our Sephardic congregation decided to build the most beautiful synagogue in South Florida, we knew we had to choose the best construction manager to make our dream a reality. Our project required extraordinary attention, close coordination, and control of our design professionals as a result of our changing the interior design team midstream. Whenever questions arose, Rick Pitchman listened patiently, an attentive dialogue took place, and the best decision was arrived at as a team. Rick always gave us his opinion with the Temple's best interest in mind. We are very proud of our synagogue and it is obvious to us that Rick takes great pride in his construction projects.”

We hereby convey our appreciation to Rick Pitchman and all the staff at Max South Construction, Inc. for a beautiful job well done."
