P1 receives praise for St. Francis Hospital Acute Care Expansion

St. Francis

P1 Group recently helped Tonn & Blank Construction with the St. Francis Hospital Acute Care Expansion in Indianapolis, Ind. P1 Group provided HVAC, plumbing and sheet metal construction.

In light of the success of the project, Tonn & Blank Senior Project Manager Brian Phillips recognized P1 Group’s overall effort from start to finish with this letter:


Dear Mr. Gossman:

I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you and your entire staff for your work on the St. Francis Indianapolis Bed Tower project. From the first meeting with P1 during the selection interviews, your team stood out above your competition. You brought your entire senior management team to Indianapolis to show your commitment to us and the project. After you were selected for the job, you proved that that was not just a dog and pony show to get selected but you carried that commitment to us through every stage of the process.

The effort that Jim Gathen and your pre-construction group put forth during Schematic and Design Development drawings and budgeting was tremendous. The level of expertise shown in filling in the design gaps to assist the design team and allow us to put together comprehensive budgets with very little information at times was impressive. We never heard a complaint about pricing any number of options and scenarios, all we heard was “when do you need it?” The budgeting at every stage was detailed and accurate.

Once construction began, your on site personnel were outstanding. Jason Quattlebaum, Jack Laney and Mark McGrath participated as part of the team to facilitate the project’s successful completion at every step. We never heard the word no, only how can we help you. They handled budget, schedule, safety and coordination with the experience and expertise that you promised during the selection process.

P1 was truly a team player throughout the entire project from start to finish, which is exactly what we were hoping for. It was a pleasure to work with every P1 employee that touched the job, either on site or in your home office. I would be happy to work with P1 Group again on any of my future projects.
