What do others say about us?


Okay, maybe everybody doesn’t love us. As you can imagine, we have to lean on some subcontractors and suppliers to get major projects done on time and on budget. However, our clients think we are great. Here’s what our past clients say about us:

“Straightforward, honest, incredibly knowledgeable and competent, Brian Groza was the ideal choice of contractors for our home in Quail Meadows. Save any additions or upgrades on our part, Brian came in on budget and within the designated time frame, much to the amazement of many of our friends who had decidedly different outcomes. Perhaps it is his extensive experience in building on the Monterey Peninsula that has enabled him to get the best subcontractors, but we were pleased with everyone who worked on our home. With our architect in Cambridge, MA, we had to rely on Brian to provide additional expertise. When issues and challenges inevitably arose during the building process, Brian and his crew problem-solved to our complete satisfaction, sometimes arriving at solutions that actually improved our house. We were delighted by Brian's work and heartened that such a talented, decent man built our home.”
—Barbara H.

"It's hard to describe Cody West's talent without sounding unrealistically complimentary. Cody is (obviously) a gifted engineer and builder, but he is also a diplomat, negotiator, and peacemaker—the skill-set I needed. I was trying to rehabilitate an old adobe home. My engineer, contractor, and building officials were at odds—mired in a bureaucratic log jam. By the time I spoke with Cody, the situation seemed impossible. I wasn't sure I could even explain it. He listened patiently, asked a few questions, and went to visit my construction site (same day). Afterward, he presented his analysis of facts on the ground, and prescribed a way ahead. He would try to untangle the snags. I accepted. He met with building officials and developed a memo of understanding that my engineer and builder could use as a road map. The map was followed and the building permit was granted (without exception)."
—Ed Marsh

"Working with Groza Construction was a delight. Brian and his entire team are top notch and their professionalism and integrity was evident from start to finish in every facet of both their construction and administrative processes. They would definitely be our contractor of choice on any future projects."
—Bob K.

“Building a house can be a wonderfully challenging, collaborative and creative experience. Those were my expectations before I began re-building my home. Brian Groza, Mark Twisselman and the Groza Construction team met and exceeded all my expectations. My house was very challenging. Brian and Mark's knowledge and experience helped find a solution to each challenge. When I think of everyone that I met at Groza Construction I think of people who are professional, courteous and hard working. Integrity is truly the essence of Groza Construction. As I walk through my beautiful new home I think of all the skilled and talented craftsmen who worked so hard to help me realize my dream house. I thank them all from the bottom of my heart.”
—Julie V.

"From our long-term experience with Cody, we have accumulated a catalog of evidence that supports the superior quality, efficiency and professionalism of Cody's work. From originality of design and engineering solutions, to execution of projects, Cody and his team are the complete package. In sum, Cody is honest, hardworking, loyal and talented in a way most can only aspire. We would not hesitate to recommend Cody and his team to anyone looking to design, build or manage their dream project."
—Chris Stanek and Kate Ferlic

“We continue to happily recommend Groza Construction to friends and found our construction project a most exciting and positive adventure. Brian Groza headed a team of folks who truly cared about what they were doing and by the end of the project lasting friendships and funny stories eased the void of the process ending. We have a lot of construction experience and the speed and thoroughness with which problems were defined and solved were hallmarks of what you expect but rarely encounter. And yes, the project did cost more than Brian estimated at the start: 1.8%.”
—Peter N.

"Cody's work on our project was absolutely first rate. He takes great care to ensure every detail is thought-out and uses only top quality materials. His company uses only the best subcontractors as evidenced by the quality of their work. We had many complex tasks on the WPCA project that needed precise coordination with the residents, Cody, and the sub-contractors and everything went without a "hitch”. Cody was very responsive to our questions and was able to incorporate many last minute changes that we requested even though winter was setting in. Cody was also very timely in keeping WPCA up-to-date with the construction progress."
—Michael Whitney, Ph.D., P.E. Principal

"Cody West built a single family residence for me and my wife during 2007. Throughout the process, we found Cody to be extremely professional and ethical. The home was constructed within the agreed upon time frame and the building inspectors were impressed with the quality of the work. As clients, we have been very pleased with the finished product. We would highly recommend Cody West."
—Kurt Jorgensen

"I write this letter to provide a sincere and educated recommendation of Cody West. Our project was located in a difficult place to build. The construction season is short, the terrain is difficult, and access is challenging for delivery vehicles and, at times, even people just trying to get to work. Due in part to this, several recent projects in the area had failed to plan for these elements and proceeded off schedule and off budget. Early on we reviewed this concern with Cody and he embraced it and folded it in to all of the planning we went through during the pre-construction period. In addition Cody, a trained engineer, arrived fully prepared to meet our needs for a quality builder with eyes on all aspects of the project capable of working with and performing up to the exacting standards of our design team led by Alexandra Champalimaud."
