The purpose of this letter is to provide a recommendation for Dick Otke Construction Company.

The Dick Otke Construction Company (DOCC) was the general contractor for our Expansion. That Expansion was started October, 2002 and completed in August of 2003. The Expansion was budgeted for $2M and approved by the membership in June of 2002.

The net results were that the Project came in on budget and within the planned time frame. Dick Otke and his company were the main reason this was accomplished.

Another important element was how this Project was managed. After Architects Alliance Inc. had developed the general plans for the Expansion, several contractors were interviewed. The goal was to select a contractor based on their commercial building history, cost plus methodology and willingness to work as a partner with both the Country Club and the Architects. DOCC was selected as that contractor.

Dick Otke and his staff worked very well with me, the Country Club’s Project manager. DOCC worked effectively with the many subs required, therefore making DOCC my only contact. DOCC had the flexibility to work with the Project as unplanned problems may arise. In summary, they completed an excellent Expansion for the Jefferson City Country Club.

If you have any questions please free to contact me or any member of the Board of Directors who were involved with this Expansion.

Very truly yours,

Tom R. Talbot
Project Manager
Jefferson City Country Club

To Whom It May Concern:

It is with great privilege that I write to you in recommendation for construction projects. As a building code official in Cole County I have been associated Dick Otke Construction Company for the past 13 years.

Dick Otke Construction has been instrumental in many construction proj ects, residential development and the economic development of many businesses in Jefferson City and Cole County area. I have also worked directly with them on the St. Thomas Church renovation and building expansion which I was project manager as our Parish renovated new school classrooms and built a new multi purpose gymnasium.

I have great confidence in the company and their employees. They take pride in their work and doing a quality job. They have always exceeded and gone beyond meeting building code requirements on all projects they have been involved in. I would feel very comfortable with them as a client or having work done by them on any scale. They have always demonstrated professional and honest work relationship with all client and associates in the construction industry.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

logoI am a retired Facility Leasing Coordinator for the State of Missouri. In that position we came into contact with many contractors across the state. One of the very best was Dick Otke Construction. Their quality of workmanship, honesty and integrity stood out above the average contractor.

As a result of that experience we selected Dick Otke Construction as a partner for construction of the River City Habitat for Humanity complex at 1420 Creek Trail Drive in Jefferson City, MO. The complex houses the affiliate offices, conference room and habitat Re-store in a 12000 square foot and 7000 square foot facility.

At the present time we are conducting a major renovation of the lower level of the original structure at the First Presbyterian Church in Jefferson City withDick Otke Construction. At this time we are not complete, however, based uponpast experience and performance to date on this project, we are confident we willbe on time, within budget and that the finished product will be of highest quality.

I can highly recommend Gary Oberkrom and Dick Otke for your next construction project. It is a pleasure to work with a company that is not only competent but has the highest standards of integrity and honesty.

Sincerely Yours,
Jim Hoffman
