During this time, I found each of the team members to be effective communicators who were able to work cooperatively and efficiently and I was extremely impressed with Mr. Hoffman’s liaison amongst all of the Civil engineers, Soil Mechanics and the very capable Sub-contractors who also worked on our projects. In addition he has a great rapport with the City of Carlsbad’s city officials.
