Dear John,
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for a job-well-done at 8730 Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood. The patience and professionalism exhibited by both you and On-site Supervisor Grant Grigoryan under often difficult and trying circumstances was commendable. Furthermore, the level of expertise and craftsmanship put forth by your band of subcontractors is beyond compare. As witnessed and expressed by all who have passed through the doors, the restaurant is beautiful. I look forward to working with CalAsia again in the future and have already recommended your services to others.

Director of Operations
Restaurant 8730

I wanted to take this opportunity to drop you a note of appreciation for the job your team did on Toscanova at The Commons in Calabasas. Firstly I was impressed with the detailed proposal you presented and then your willingness and ability to deal with the value engineering needed to meet my budget. We are very happy with the quality of the final product and were impressed that we got the project completed together in the scheduled time we had set. There were many issues with the existing restaurant which had been abused for ten years prior to us going in. There were many opportunities for added costs due to these existing conditions but your staff was fair and worked with our team to keep costs to a minimum. I would be glad to discuss your firm with anyone you care to send my way and I look forward to the next opportunity to work with you and your team. Steve and Brian were both great!

Trattoria Neapolis

To Whom it may concern:
“We had a great experience with CalAsia as our contractor for Trattoria Neapolis. Our’s was a very complicated total remodel with a high level of design and the kind of surprises one finds in an older building. CalAsia gave us a great deal of support all the way through from the initial budgeting through the qualifying, pricing, and hiring of subs, through the construction process and in the final punch list. They did a good job of troubleshooting when issues arose. CalAsia helped us find savings where it made sense to do so while maintaining the quality we wanted. They performed very well on the schedule. Their people were very professional. I would strongly recommend them to someone else looking to build or remodel a restaurant.”

Theta USC Kitchen

Good afternoon, Art, John and Vernon,
I am writing to say a big ‘thank you’ to each of you for bringing to life the state-of-the-art kitchen at Kappa Alpha Theta sorority at USC. The kitchen officially opened on Monday, August 20, 2012. That evening, 150 young women sat down together to enjoy the first meal from the new kitchen. It included grilled salmon, chicken, a gourmet saladand sweets. There were raves all around. What a great facility you designed, Art! Chef Gary Bradford is in hog heaven. While he may have to deal with envy among his fellow chefs on ‘The Row,’ that is a happy problem. Thank you, John, for bringing CalAsia’s formidable talent and experience to this work. You got it alldone in such a short time! During this long summer, I came to respect and value Dave for many things: His expertise, his tirelessness and his good spirits. He is such a good man. How fortunate you are to have him.Denis was also great to work with. He is a focused, efficient, calm professional. I turned to him when the going got rough. He deals well in adversity, a virtue I laud. And to you, Vernon, my thanks for funding this project. Special personal thanks for assuring me that there would be a ‘safety net’ if we needed it. My days were easier knowing your bank would step in if we had a major hiccup. But that did not happen.I am very proud to be associated with all of you and your companies. I look forward to every opportunity to praise and recommend you to others.

All the best,
Claudia Carver

Birns & Sawyer, Inc.

Dear John,
I would like to take a moment to thank you for your fine work on our remodel here at Birns & Sawyer. As you know, we scheduled the work over several years in phases with this final phase being the most difficult. Your staff was efficient, pleasant and caught several material quality deficiencies that I might have missed. When there were conditions that required careful consultation with our architect, your team solved all of the problems fairly and safely. Thanks for a job well done. I remain.

Yours truly,
William Meurer, President

Re: Cal Asia Construction
To Whom It May Concern:
I have been using John Murawski and Cal Asia Construction for approximately four years for various small projects. The largest and most significant assignment involved the reconstruction of a retail storefront building on North La Brea Avenue. This job was completed on time and on budget. Subsequently, John has completed several remodel and repair projects in both retail and residential condominium structures. The work is always handled in a professional and dependable manner.
I expect to continue to use Cal Asia in the future because I have found them to be:
• Honest and trustworthy
• Dependable
• Competitively priced
• Professional workmanship
If you have any questions, you’re welcome to contact me.

To Whom It may concern:
Working with CalAsia Construction was a great experience. Trustworthy, efficient and dependable, they took care of us every step of the way. This being our first project we had a lot of questions and concern but they made us feel comfortable and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Even though our project was small (only 700 square feet) they were completely dedicated to helping us realize our dream. The space turned out exactly how we envisioned it, and we will be going to them first on all future projects. A big thanks to John. our project manager Ernie and the rest of the CalAsia team. their knowledge and attention to detail makes them a superior choice.
