Metrolina Regional Scholars Academy

Metrolina initially hired Playbook to provide roofing and rooftop HVAC unit assessments for determination of the service life of their roof and rooftop HVAC units. After reviewing the report and findings, Metrolina decided to move forward with removal and replacement of their existing 41,000 SF roof and (5) rooftop HVAC units. Playbook provided preconstruction, project management and post construction services for this project over the summer of 2014.

Client Recommendations:

This summer the Scholars Academy replaced its roof and 25 year old HVAC system. It was a big job with the potential to occupy a lot of time and cause some anxiety for the school’s Board and Administration. Thanks to Mike Grippo and Playbook, it caused very little anxiety and almost no time on the part of the Board nor the Administration.

Mike was an excellent manager of the process. He kept me informed of every step and had solutions to every problem that came up. For a job this size there were few problems and Mike helped get them all fixed. The job was completed on time and within the budget.

Playbook made the job easy and the school is much more comfortable because of it.

I write this letter in recommendation of Mike Grippo as a general contractor / project manager. I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Grippo on the Roof and HVAC replacement at our school. I would recommend Mr. Grippo highly and without reservation. Throughout the course of the renovation, Mr. Grippo was a consummate professional. He was accurate in his initial assessment of the scale and cost of our project. He was diligent in soliciting multiple bids from different companies. He chose and managed the sub-contractors well. The task was completed with care and precision.

Mr. Grippo kept the entire team fully apprised of the project over the course of nearly 3 months. He was proactive in his update, and very responsive to our requests. I would not hesitate to utilize Mr. Grippo in any future projects.
