“We never could have received the Tri-State Minority Supplier Development Council’s award for “Corporation of the Year in the Public Sector” without the collaboration and commitment of Abel Construction. We look forward to working with Abel for many years to come.”

Assistant Director of Purchasing

“I can’t thank you enough for your quick response. Protecting the world headquarters facility and their employees is the #1 priority and having the potential for the building to be out of service is not an option. This facility is the hub of our worldwide business so keeping it fully operational is the only option. You cannot know how much we at Yum appreciate your quick response and education you provided so we can take action to perform additional PM that will keep the facility in top condition. Much thanks goes out to you and Richard Banta for making the impossible happen at a blink of eye.”

“Abel Construction’s quality of the construction and work ethic of exceeded our every expectation. Deadlines were met or in many cases completed prior to the set completion date. Their entire construction team was always available to answer questions and implement changes throughout the building process. I would recommend Abel Construction without reservation and hope to work with them again when the opportunity arises.”

“We used Abel Construction for a remodel project and not only was I impressed, but I continue to receive many compliments regarding the craftsmanship of the project from those who see it. No matter the project, they do an exceptional job helping with the design and completing the job—even in less than desirable weather conditions. They are very thorough, have great communication and excellent customer service as well. We could not have asked for a better relationship and we look forward to more work with them in the future.”

“We found that Abel Construction’s team was always at least a couple of weeks ahead in construction planning for our project. They never failed to ask the key questions to ensure they understood the scope of the work and to determine if there were challenges that needed to be resolved or corrected. Though our project was very large and had a tight deadline—as well as a tight location within a site—the project ran very smoothly and Abel Construction ensured everything was completed on time and on budget.”

“Congratulations to Abel Construction on their 75th anniversary! The ability to be in construction successfully for 75 years is a testament to the quality and services they have consistently provided over that extended period of time. JM, Arne and I enjoyed working with Abel on the University of Louisville’s Equine project. Their cooperation on helping us and the University of Louisville through the unforeseen issues and complexities that were encountered on that project were invaluable. UL Equine is certainly a project that everyone involved with the design and construction can be proud of. We look forward to future opportunities with Abel.”
