Bill played a key role in the successful completion and delivery of our Bravern development.

“The Bravern” development was an extremely complex assemblage of uses, with multiple deadlines to meet, not to mention our tenant requirements and differing general contractors for each use with many project interdependencies.

Bill and his colleagues at Schnitzer West did an unmatched, remarkable, and thorough job in delivering this “best in class” national project on-schedule and on-budget with challenging market conditions and demanding stake holders.

“I enjoyed working with Bill during his long tenure at TCR. I very much appreciated that he would take my 80 year old dad on tours of construction sites – Bill is a class act.”

—Ken Valach, Chief Executive Officer of Trammell Crow Residential, Crow Holdings Industrial and Crow Holdings Office

“Bill has an impressive history of successful development projects and consistently delivers on his cost and schedule obligations. As a general contractor, I’ll admit he has extremely high expectations, but his firm and proactive approach is also fair and collaborative. Bill fully understands the development lifecycle and will clear a path with timely decisions and team accountability that enables everyone the opportunity to work efficiently. When Bill is involved in a project, I have the confidence to price and schedule the work aggressively, knowing that he will keep the entire project team focused on a successful delivery. His word is his bond, and that level of trust and transparency is the foundation for the partnership we share. I sincerely look forward to our next project together!”

— Aaron F. Wiehe, VP & District Manager, PCL Construction Services Inc.

“Greg has been instrumental in more than 25 projects in at least 15 states. For many of them Greg was involved in initial planning, land use and permitting. He was very adept and successful in interacting with the agencies in these towns and cities to get the required approvals and permits. For many others, Greg then managed the design of the projects including in-house design and all other related consultants. Greg was always a professional team player. I could not give anyone a higher recommendation.”

— Brad Nydahl, Managing Partner, New Valley Construction

“Bill is extremly knowledgeable and concise, able to keep the team focused on what matters most during each critical phase of the life of the project, it has been a pleasure to work with him on his many projects.”

— Dave Letrondo, Principal/Architect, Ankrom Moisan Architecture

“As the President & CEO of KBE Building Corporation and New Valley Construction, I wish to express that I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Greg Elmore for the past several years. Our companies interacted intimately with Greg, as Project Manager/Land Use & Entitlement. We have utilized their services on numerous multi-million-dollar projects that we have constructed throughout the United States. Greg displays a tremendous amount of integrity, dedication, and professionalism always. They consistently complete their projects within our strict deadlines and time constraints. In addition, they are reliable, accessible, and straight forward to deal with, in every facet of the engineering, design and construction process.”

— Michael Kolakowski, KBE BUILDING CORPORATION & NEW VALLEY CONSTRUCTION, President and Chief Executive Officer

“I have known and worked with Bill Hardt over the last 20 years most notably on the Bravern in Bellevue a technically challenging mixed-use project developed and constructed in 2005 – 2010. Since then Bill has continued his development career successfully completing projects on a local and national level. In addition to his strong core competencies in development, construction and management, integrity is Bills building foundation that brings success for all members of his overall team. Bill puts others success above his own and by doing so has mentored many successful young development professionals. I can’t recommend Bill enough. He will exceed your expectations regularly.”

— Arne J. Hall, AJH Development Services, LLC

“My companies and I have worked closely with Bill Hardt over a 25-year period. The projects have varied in size and type. This has been a repeated working relationship from project design concept through construction, occupancy and warranty. What has been constant is Bill’s approach of working closely with his consultants and our people. This “old school” approach has been a constant for the team to review everything together (quality, budget, schedule) to provide the greatest value for his company and their investors. Only knowledgeable people who trust each other and are mutually committed to the project can repeat this kind of product.People come and go. Relationships that endure through numerous seasons of industry and economic change, successfully completing project after project are rare. A leader of the team like Bill is who ultimately drives the success.”

— Brad Nydahl, Managing Partner, New Valley Construction LLC, Former CEO/Owner, Howard S Wright Construction Co., a Balfour Beatty Company

“Bill’s development and construction knowledge is unparalleled. We worked closely together on 30+ senior housing, multifamily, office, self-storage, and dialysis projects. Bill consistently drew on his vast development and construction experience to cleverly solve the inevitable challenges that arise with large-scale projects. With his guidance, we met or exceeded expectations on every project, from development budget to dispositions. Nonetheless, what I valued most about Bill was his mentorship and the trust he placed in me to run projects. He invests in people and is a loyal colleague and friend. I knew he always had my back and the team. He has a strong voice and is unafraid to speak hard truths. You need that in real estate development. He has the highest integrity.”

— Giuseppe (Joe) Augello, Director Real Estate, GRACORP

“I met Bill in 2011 when he brought their Columbia Pacific AL/MC program to the firm. He came with a plan and set everyone up to fulfill that plan. His coordination, his direction, and his ability to put together a cohesive team of professionals allowed us to take a conceptual AL/MC Unit Mix, review the design with the operator, include the contractor in building techniques, and produce a full set of Construction Documents in less than 6 months. In my 25 years in senior housing, I have never been a part of a more well directed team. Over the past 8 years every challenge presented to him, Bill has dealt with professionally and with great consideration for all members of his team. His approach to his craft and the service he provides cannot be matched. His loyalty to those who work hard and follow his process is commendable. He is a Mentor in every way possible. He works hard for what he believes in and expects everyone to come to the table with the same passion to get the job done right, on time, and under budget.”

— Greg Elmore, Partner, e2k Consulting

“As a designer, the best thing you could possibly ask for in a client is freedom. Bill establishes the expectations early, but then allows his team the ever-so-important freedom to explore, surprise, and elate. Bill then supports and executes the ideas. He’s a terrific partner in creating amazing places and one of the nicest clients I’ve worked with in my twenty plus years in housing design.”
