Over the years I've had the opportunity to work with many different general contractors. Working with Chris, Michael and the ECI team has always been an enjoyable experience. Their thoughtfulness for detail and craft, management tactics and professionalism at all levels of the construction process has been an absolute pleasure. I have seen it and my clients have seen it as well ... and that is a true testament to their work and care.

Synergistic partnerships don’t come along very often.  Over the past three years, we have been truly blessed to find a group of folks that not only THINK and WORK like us, but TRUST like us.  Success comes when you find PARTNERS in this business that have the same VALUES and PRINCIPLES as your own TEAM.  The results are magical.  Chris and the wonderful TEAM at ECI have been that Fairy Dust for Albert Enterprises and Albert Restaurant Group.  We couldn’t do what we do in Central and South Texas without them.  Keep up the great work!

It was an absolute pleasure working with Chris and the ECI team.  They brought a level of professionalism and organization we’d never before experienced with a general contractor and their attention to detail and ability to adapt in the field was remarkable.  ECI has been a tremendous partner in our business and we will continue to look to them as we undertake new projects.
