Who:
Warren Whitehead and Maureen Harland

Dear Marshall,

Maureen and I would like to tell you how absolutely thrilled we are with the house. This is by far the biggest undertaking we have done together, and we were anticipating a stressful process, but you, Larry, Sylvia and Bob made it a fun, pleasurable experience.

We have had a steady stream of people come by the house during the past 6 months, friends, as well as people who were watching it being built. We've even had other builders come by, asking to see it. Everyone who has come by has stated that they are impressed, not only by the house, but also by the quality of the construction, the reputation of your company and the subcontractors you have used.

We are constantly asked 3 questions:

Are you happy with the house?

How was the experience working with Marshall Bone, and what kinds of problems did you have?

Would you use him again?

To each of these, we give the same answers:

The house turned out better than we ever expected, and we expected a lot. Then, when they walk through the house, they understand what we mean.

"Working with Marshall Bone was as problem free as we could have ever imagined. We didn't have problems. Marshall, Larry and Bob were on top of the job every step of the way.

We would have Marshall build us another house in a heartbeat.

If any prospective customers ever have questions, or would like to see the type of work that you do, please point them in our direction.

Sincerely,
Warren Whitehead and Maureen Harland

Who:
Jon and Debbie Dunbar
 

Dear Marshall,

We've been in our new home for 9 months and not a day goes by that we don't appreciate it's quality and comfort.

You, Larry, Bob and Sylvia are the team that worked together to make this the finest experience we could have hoped for. Everyone told us before we started this process that it might end our marriage! The horror stories about having your own home built are well known.

Our experience could not have been better. The positive attitude, attention to details, and the ability to resolve issues to everyone's satisfaction were the difference.

Please do not hesitate to use us as a recommendation. As in the past, we continue to be ready and willing to talk to your new clients about our experiences.

Warmest Regards,
Jon and Debbie Dunbar

Who:
DeLand Area Chamber of Commerce

Dear Marshall,

Almost a year has elapsed since we completed the expansion of our Chamber building, and we are finally "settling in".

We continue to enjoy the many compliments on the buildings appearance, of course, but those of us on the Chamber staff particularly appreciate the additional space and the excellent job your company and the subcontractors did in constructing the building. It has been well-tested by Florida's summer rains with no roof problems whatsoever; the meeting room has been used constantly (even before it was finished) and has proven to be an excellent facility for our needs; and the Welcome Center is not only impressive looking, but also quite functional.

A few things have surprised us. For example, the cost of heating and cooling the building, now more than twice the original size, has increased very little. Having three separate heat and cool systems along with your idea of building over the old building, resulting in a roof over a roof, has given us a very efficient system. And your assistance has we made other "adjustments" to our plans was invaluable, saving hard-to-come-by dollars while preserving the original intent of our architects.

We all had our patience strained a bit as the project went on, what with our staff having to work in the building while construction went on about us. Your people were very considerate and helpful, making the best of what could have been a bad situation. Finally, Marshall B. Bone, Inc's. donation of your services, along with many other contributions by area businesses, helped us create a showplace at an unbelievably low cost. We sincerely appreciate all you have done for the Chamber and thank you for helping us build for the future of our association and the DeLand community.

Best regards,
Dahlon G. Ritchey

To Whom It May Concern:

I am pleased to recommend Marshall B. Bone Construction Company as a high quality commercial contractor in Volusia County.

Who:
DeMarsh Theatres

Dear Marshall:

Just a note to let you know how pleased we are with the Victoria Square 6 Theatres project. Even after two years we still have customers and other exhibitors tell us how much they like our complex. The fact that our building was the last building started, and yet we were the first business open in the shopping center is a tribute to your company's competence and to the advantages of metal building technology.

Your entire staff made the construction of our theatre extremely easy for us. Brenda, Lloyd, and Larry were always willing to help solve whatever problem we presented to them. Buddy's research of sound transmission and his input during the design has created a building which has exceeded our expectations. Ray's patience with us each day and his ability to coordinate our installation during the final days helped us meet our very important opening date. Your help with the city and the developer was crucial to our ability to get the project started.

If we ever have the opportunity to build another theatre, we will certainly go with another metal building shell. The cost savings of a metal building verses conventional construction was the determining factor when it came to the feasibility of doing this project.

Thanks again for a job well done. We hope we will have the chance to work with you again in the future.

Best regards:
Frank DeMarsh

The assistance and expertise which you gave to us throughout the project was most gratifying.

Who:
Manheim Auctions

Dear Marshall:

On behalf of the Manheim Auctions division of Cox Enterprises our compliments and thanks to you for the outstanding job you did as the General Contractor for our New Daytona Auto Dealers Exchange facility in Daytona Beach, Florida. You and all of your subcontractors worked on the facility with a sense of pride we rarely, if ever, see on a construction project.

As we discussed, we may be seeking your assistance and advice on future construction projects in our division.

Best Regards,
Darryll M. Ceccoli
Executive Vise President
Manheim Auctions

 

Dear Marshall:

We would like to take this opportunity to extend our sincere thanks for everything you did to get our new Daytona Beach facility completed in time for our first sale on April 14. To show our appreciation for the excellent job you have performed for us, I have enclosed a check in the amount of $10,000.

We are well aware that you had to pull out "all of the stops" to get the job done, to include exhorting your people to work a lot of overtime. Personally speaking, I have never seen anyone get the amount of work done that you and your people accomplished in that final week.

We appreciate all of the peripheral and coordinating tasks you helped us with, thus ensuring our being able to open on time. We also appreciate the consulting assistance you have been giving us, separate from the Daytona project.

Thanks again for "going that extra mile". We look forward to continuing our work together.

Sincerely,
Walt Bodine
Vice President/Administration

Who:
Daytona Auto Dealers Exchange

Dear Ms. Davis:

I am attaching herewith the signed and completed General Status Inquiry form I received from you in April.

It has now been sixty days since we received our Certificate of Occupancy from Volusia County and accepted the facility from Marshall B. Bone, Inc.

I have now completed my file on this project and am happy to report that this job has come through with "flying colors". In spite of the fact that over $141,000.00 in additional work was added to the original contract, construction was completed in record time.

We currently have many projects underway in both the U.S. and Canada. Frankly, none of them come close to the performance we received from Bone on this job. Every aspect of the project, from the housekeeping during all phases to the final details, was handled in a highly professional manner.

Our corporate officers were so impressed with the performance of the Bone construction efforts that he was awarded a $10,000.00 bonus. A tribute to a job well done! I am attaching copies of letters from two of our officers that you may find interesting.

If we can be of future help to you in regard to the Marshall B. Bone Inc. company, do not hesitate to call on me.

Very truly yours,
R. W. Pohle
Project Manager
Daytona Auto Dealers Exchange

 

Dear Marshall:

I would like to take this opportunity to extend my appreciation to you and your staff for the fine job which you did on our recently completed reconditioning facility.

As in the past when you built our auto auction facility, the quality of the finished product and the attention to detail was superb. Everyone on the job, from your own employees to your subcontractors, was always very courteous, cooperative, and helpful.

Marshall, you have now completed two projects for us and I fully expect to use your services when we expand our auction building in the near future. If you ever would need to use my name as a reference with a prospective client, do not hesitate to do so.

Again, thanks for the fine job.

Sincerely,
Russell K. Brown
General Manager

Who:
Lakeland Auto Auction

Dear Mr. Bone:

Thanks to you and your staff for the excellent job done on our auction and office building.

You were recommended by other auctions of our company and I must say they certainly did not exaggerate on your capabilities. The quality of work, attention to detail, and attitude of employees resulted in a facility that makes us all very proud. I must single out Larry Blackmore, your construction supervisor, as a most competent and courteous person to work with.

We are not only very pleased with our facility but also would be glad to recommend you very highly to anyone having a need of your services. If we may help in any way, please give us a call.

Sincerely,
Cliff Patterson

Dear Marshall:

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the wonderful day care center your company built for us. It was a dream come true to have a day care center that working parents could depend on and not worry about their children.

The quality of workmanship is excellent and we could not be more pleased with the final results.

If you would like to use my name as a reference, please feel free to do so.

Who:
Showalter Flying Service, Inc.

Dear Marshall,

Now that the smoke has cleared, I wanted to take this minute to thank you for a job well done on the new hangar for Martin Marietta.

Your knowledge of the labyrinth to the South (GOAA) served us well as the project came to fruition. The new occupants are quite happy with the fixtures and the "bugs" have pretty much been worked out. I still think that our suspicions about the storm drainage that GOAA planned for us will spell trouble in the future.

Marshall, as I said at the beginning of this venture, it might seem strange to some that I hired a contractor that owns a piece of my competition on the airport. I hired you though, because I thought then and still feel that you are the best equipped to deliver a good hangar at the best price.

Thanks again. Let's hope that hangar demand will allow us to do this again soon.

Sincerely,
Robert H. Showalter
President
Showalter Flying Service, Inc.

Who:
Relative Workshop

Dear Marshall,

I am writing this letter to personally thank you and your company for the outstanding job performed for The Relative Workshop. The idea of building a new manufacturing and office complex for my company was troubling to say the least. Considering the many complexities involved in dealing with the multitude of contractors, banking, governmental and environmental agencies (both major and minor), was completely out of my realm.

After meeting with several certified general contractors, I was very impressed with the knowledge and confidence you displayed. Your knowledge and confidence, combined with a very competitive bid proposal, indicated that you were the company that I wanted to contract. Throughout the construction, you made every effort to answer all questions, and work in all design changes that I needed. All phases of construction flowed smoothly, and you were able to finish construction within the allotted time frame, enabling us to move in as planned. Minor problems occurring after occupancy were attended to quickly and efficiently.

Again, thank you. If you or your contractors need references, please feel free to contact myself or my general manager, Mr. Overbey. We will help in any way possible.

Sincerely,
Bill Booth
Relative Workshop

Who:
Performance Designs, Inc.

Dear Marshall:

I would like to personally thank you for the outstanding job you and your people did on my new facility. The timely completion of the project helped to reduce the delay of producing our product.

The design of the building, with the offices and manufacturing separate, helps reduce interference in both areas.

The help you and Buddy gave us in obtaining financing was greatly appreciated.

Thank you again for the great job... if ever you need a reference, please contact my office.

Very truly yours,

Who:
Victorium Corporation

To Whom It May Concern:

We have had the opportunity to use Marshall Bone Construction on two separate occasions; building a metal office and warehouse facilities, as well as extensive re-modeling of an existing restaurant.

We have always found him to be hard-working and honest. Marshall has a non-negative attitude in solving problems. He takes his creativity and solves the problems, whatever they may be. One of his most outstanding qualities is that he is there during the construction and knows what is going on. Even after the project is completed, he makes himself available for any questions or problems the customer may have. It is a pleasure doing business with him.

Most sincerely,
R. Paul Cook
President
Victorium Corporation

We also valued the honesty and integrity with which you conducted your business. We knew we were treated fairly and honestly at all times. You are a credit to the construction industry.

Very truly yours,

Thank you for participating in "Career Day 94" at DeLand High School. Your interest in our students and our community made this a special, highly successful day. We must work together to tighten the gap between school and the world of work. Your willingness to help, in spite of Mother Nature's fury that day, has certainly demonstrated to our children that you really care about their futures.

Dear Volusia Partner:

We are deeply appreciative of all our business partners. You and your business, civic organization, or institute of higher learning have become an integral part of Volusia County Schools and its vision: "Through the individual commitment of all, our students will graduate with the knowledge, skills and values necessary to be successful contributors to our democratic society."

Our Volunteers and partners assist with our goals in unique ways, donating 3,000 hours daily in service as well as contributing material resources, and other in-kind contributions. Without your unselfish donations of time and materials, students would not receive the services you make possible.

We are very sorry if you were unable to attend the Eighth Annual Volusia Partner's Day, February 22, 1994, at the Indigo Lakes Crowne Plaza Resort Banquet Center. Each year we try to thank our business and civic leaders for the outstanding contributions given our students during the school year.

Thank you and please accept this certificate and Volusia Partner decal as a small token of our appreciation for your support. Also, we have enclosed the VIPS Review, our Annual Report on Volunteer/Partnership Programs.

Your continued investment in quality education for the future generation is truly appreciated. You are making a difference in education.

Sincerely yours,
Joan P. Kowal
