AArlington Construction Management
Arlington Construction Management built a beautiful home for us in Arlington. Chad and his team were professional throughout the process and were always available to answer our questions and concerns. As a construction manager, the cost of building a quality home was less expensive than building a custom home with a traditional general contractor, and well worth it. I would highly recommend ACM for anyone looking to build a new house or an addition.

The entire team was great, from the sales staff to the construction managers. I had a project manager who I could call directly with any concerns. They were very concerned with quality not quantity.

AManaged Renovations
We found Managed Renovations to be consistently professional, knowledgeable, and client-oriented.  They worked to make the process and the product as high quality, and as client suited as possible.  We got to have the exact renovation that we wanted without any of the usual headache.  Having worked as a professional architect for many years I was surprised and impressed by the quality of the work and materials, the speed of construction (I have rarely seen this), and the ease of this project for us, the client.  We were able to easily choose all materials, with knowledge of costs and quality given by the professionals at Managed Renovations and by the expert sub-contractors to which they referred us.       The hardest part of the whole project was finding someone to guide us through it.  Once we found Michael Shannon and Natalie Grande of Managed Renovations, the rest was surprisingly painless and even enjoyable!  We began the project wanting to create a master bedroom suite - adding a walk-in closet and master bath plus a sitting area to our master bedroom.  We then decided to bring the rest of our house into the 21st century by (1) redoing the exterior -- adding a front porch and walkway, new roof, siding, painting, etc., (2) doing infrastructure upgrades -- insulation, conditioned attic space, new HVAC system, and tankless hot water heater, and (3) making it more contemporary throughout -- new hardwood floors, new trim, some new lighting, and new stair rail system.  The project was completed on schedule, despite additions to the work, and we’re thrilled with the results.  Our neighbors, who have witnessed a number of renovations in our sub-division, keep telling us how impressed they are with our renovation team.   We attribute the success of the project to Michael and Natalie who managed the entire process.  At the beginning of the process, they put us in touch with a designer and provided helpful advice throughout the design process, took care of the permitting process, prepared a detailed cost estimate, and made numerous recommendations on materials and potential upgrades.  As the project progressed, Natalie regularly kept on top of the construction schedule, provided us regular updates, coordinated with the subs, and kept tabs on expenditures and the budget, and interfaced with us on contracting with and paying the subs.   She also looked for products and materials in keeping with the look we were going for, and gently let us know when we’re about to do something inadvisable.  Michael assembled and managed a great team of sub-contractors and was a tremendous resource on all aspects of the renovation; he treated the house like it was his own and helped ensure we received good quality and craftsmanship for our renovation bucks.  Both Michael and Natalie were regularly at the site and in frequent phone and email contact and were always available to answer our questions and make suggestions.   We also found Managed Renovations’ approach ideal in that there is complete transparency with the costs and a great deal of flexibility about project scope but we have none of the hassle associated with managing the project.   Both Michael and Natalie are highly organized and detail-oriented so we don’t have to worry that something is being forgotten or overlooked. I never expected our renovation project to go so seamlessly, to be this stress and conflict free, and to come together so quickly.  Michael and Natalie have this down to a science, and are a delight to work with.

AArlington Construction Management
He was attentive, responsive, and made us feel like a priority. As a small non-profit, it was refreshing to feel like even our relatively small project was important to Chad and his team. He made the project seamless, even as we had to adapt along the way. I look forward to working with Chad for future projects for our school, and based on our experience, I look forward to contacting Arlington Construction Management for my own family's projects in the future.

AArlington Construction Management
In the past we used a design/build company and did not feel that we had control over the process or the budget. When we reviewed the bill we found the mark-up was excessive, especially when sub-contractors were used for most of the work. This time around we chose to use Arlington Construction Management/ Chad Hackmann because of the ability to control expenses, choose the products used in building our addition and select our own sub-contractors. The ability to get several estimates and meet the subs for each trade beforehand made a huge difference in our experience. We completed our project 2 months earlier than predicted and were able to stay within budget. We ended up saving 28% from our lowest bid and we were able to use upgraded products along the way. Chad Hackmann gave us great advice, support and knowledge to help us through our project. I know we would not have received the same personal service from any other builder. We would use Arlington Construction Management & Chad Hackmann again and would highly recommend them to anyone looking into building.

BArlington Construction Management
My wife and I bought a small, old Arlington constructed in the 1920s in the Woodmont area of Arlington. After four years, we decided it was time to renovate and the project was extensive. And without a doubt, the right construction management firm to do the job was Alair Homes Arlington (formerly Arlington Construction Management), owned by Chad Hackmann). We worked directly with Chad and his team to turn our architect's drawings of our dream home into reality. Chad scoped out our project, worked with us on the budget based on the drawings and after receiving our permits he and his project management team got to work. We worked together to choose subs who would work on the various phases, pick materials and move the project forward. Chad and his project management team were professional, thorough and detailed oriented. We started in July 2016 and we moved back into our house in May 2017. Alair supported us throughout the process and even after the project was completed. We are very pleased with the final results.

AArlington Construction Management
Architecture went back and forth dozens of time to get the right design for the neighborhood, that was ultimately salable. Permitting is always a challenge in Arlington, changes had to be made, flexibility is always required. Weather was also not cooperating, but Arlington Construction Management managed to keep it on target price, although it was a little late. The end results were beautiful. ?Great exterior, a bit different for the neighborhood, and stands out. ?Very usable interior spaces, with lots of balconies to provide outdoor space. ?A 4th floor artists loft/2nd master bedroom leads to a great outdoor space from which you can see the Washington Monument and 4th of July fireworks. I also used Chad for a major renovation to our current home. ?About $150k, much lower than any other option. ?I liked how he presented multiple subs for my review and the options for cost and time.

FLENNAR CORP
We moved into our new house Memorial Day weekend (May) 2013.  On our final walkthrough there were some odds and ends that needed to be addressed, many of which were documented on our final walkthrough paperwork.  Because I had a good relationship with the construction manager at the time and he re-assured me that things would be addressed, we completed our closing.  The construction manager did do his best to address a few of the issues, but had to send other items back to customer service to get scheduled for repair.  This is where the problems began. I sent in the initial list of items that needed to be resolved from the closing and was told they would be addressed.  After getting no response or excuses for 2 months, I was told these items would just be addressed on our 90 day walkthrough.  By this time both construction managers I knew had quit and I had no idea who was handling the construction on the houses down the street, so I couldn't reach out to them. We never got an actual 90 day walkthrough, instead the customer service manager's husband (who had a brief stint working for Lennar) came by the house and scheduled two things to get fixed and did a band-aid caulk repair job to stop our shower from leaking.  This didn't fix the problem and has also developed a stain due to the complete lack of knowledge or quality that was given to address the issues. Since then I have had nothing fixed, despite emailing the list of items to the customer service manager every 1-2 weeks for the last year and a half.  Every time I get a different excuse and frankly I have had enough.  None of this stuff is hard or complicated to fix, it just requires someone in the office to call and get a contractor over to my house to fix. We are yet to have our 1 year walkthrough (now 2.5 months overdue) and I am extremely concerned that none of my issues will get fixed. Run away, far, far away from Lennar.  We love our house, but what's the point of buying new if the warranty is useless?

DVAN METRE FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT LLC
Be very careful with the contract, as you know they will be friendly and brush over many items - - - - but when the construction begins the contract is GOLD. Also, they will make many many mistakes. You must watch the entire process and be your own general contractor. When you do your final walk before closing - DO NOT PROCEED IF THERE ARE ANY MISTAKES- the sales department and construction manager will brush things aside and "address them in writing" but after you close they will only tweak little things - anything substantial is considered typical! Overall, the home is a nice design but Van Metre is light years behind other builders.

AArlington Construction Management
I can't say enough good things about Chad. He clearly took on this job out of kindness of his heart - this was a tiny job for him -- but I think that's the kind of person he is. He figured out the problem, got it fixed, and had the inside repair work done tool and, along the way, he generously answered our random questions about our old home. If we were to build a new house or addition, Chad is the ONLY builder we'd call. Yes he's very knowledgeable, but just as important, he's full of integrity - a genuinely good and honest person who has his clients' best interests in mind.

AArlington Construction Management
We recently completed our 2nd project with Chad Hackmann and Arlington Construction Management in 5 years. We moved to Falls Church into a fixer-upper and totally renovated the first 2 floors,? removed the cape style 2nd floor, rebuilt with high ceilings and a new front porch & deck. Chad was able to get us back into the house within 90 days and we stayed within the predicted budget. I know that another builder would not have been able to get everything done in that amount of time. Chad is extremely organized and the trades know he expects the job done within the allotted time frame. All of the tradesmen were professional, ready to work and knowledgeable in their field. We passed all our inspections first time around.? We easily would have paid any other builder 25% more for everything Chad was able to do for us. He has provided us information, knowledge and guidance to help us make the best decisions in our building process. Would love to find another project to work on with Chad.

Our renovation project with Arlington Construction Management went very well.  We felt comfortable working with Chad right off the bat. Throughout the few months that we worked together (which included planning, and then renovating), Chad was always available to answer questions, give recommendations and provide assurance that everything was on track. Although I know that he had multiple projects going on at the same time,  he always made us feel like a priority (as I am sure he did with the others).  For us, not having to search out who to use for all of the different aspects of the project took a huge burden off our shoulders. Also he took care of negotiating fair prices for each of the specialties. With him leading the project, I never felt "taken" by any of the subcontractors like I have in previous situations.  He told us what to expect right from the beginning, as far as costs and schedules, and he made sure all the pieces fell into place within the allotted time frame.  We were very pleased with the work and have recommended Chad to several friends and coworkers in the past year.

BGeneral Construction Management Inc
Top notch cabinet installers and cabinet maker. However, the painters did not do an adequate job in preparing the room before doing the work (doesn't seem there was enough supervision and they were left to make a lot of decision on their own and were not given a lot of basic supplies - I had to run out and get some supplies for them). They also used my Oreck vacuum cleaner to clean the mess before I stopped them. They do have their own shop vac and why they didn't use it, I have no idea. My Oreck had to be repaired later. They also ruined my step stool and ladder. Extra 3 months were needed to finish the job because of the mistakes made by the inept kitchen designer from Direct Buy in Columbia (we ordered the cabinets from them so we had to use their designer to put in the order). Top notch cabinets but incompetent designer. That designer messed up the measurement by 6" from our architect's plan, thus messed up 4 of our cabinets and also didn't order some of the part that I really wanted. General Construction Management Inc. handled very well in adjusting and redoing a lot of the mistakes that Direct Buy made due to the professionalism and experience of their cabinet installers. Overall, I recommend them highly especially if you're not using Direct Buy or if you do, double check their measurements over and over again. Also, you really have to babysit the other workers from General Mgmt Construction on their prep work, they are messy.

DArlington Construction Management
We have been very unhappy with Arlington Construction Management (ACM). As much as I would love to say “we WERE unhappy…”, we sadly are not done yet. We are within two weeks of approaching the one-year anniversary of our house being held partially hostage, just for a small second floor master bedroom/bath addition and existing bathroom renovation in our older Arlington colonial. I’ve tried to get them to commit to a completion date several times to no avail. Problem 1: Time - Chad advised the project would take 4 to 6 months. It is apparent from the delays we’ve encountered that either their leverage over subcontractors is non-existent or that we have been put at the bottom of their priority list. Problem 2: Communication and coordination – Especially given the delays, communication is important. We have been forced to constantly badger ACM about upcoming work and have learned to take any promise of a sub coming with extreme skepticism. They haven’t communicated with the subs, or ensured the subs understood numerous details from the architectural plans, leading to a significant amount of mistakes, rework and items being done out of logical sequence and, of course, delays. On many occasions, it was our architect who closely inspected and directed the work, and not our project manager. Problem 3: Quality – Chad has a different cost/management model from other contractors – a very hands-off approach with the trades which no doubt saves him money and effort. As a result of this and lack of communication above, workers have on numerous occasions either done or not done necessary work without understanding what they should be doing. And numerous things in the process were broken or improperly discarded, which we had to replace with new items, revealing a lack of supervision and care of our property. To give credit where credit is due, Chad’s budgeting was very accurate and useful, his model allows us to deal with subs directly for additional projects, and ACM has not questioned our desire to have rework done. But every preventable rework adds time and frustration for them and us. We hope to cross the finish line soon but it shouldn’t have been like this. Chad’s price may seem very reasonable but be forewarned, you will be waiting and suffering, cajoling and cursing these guys for at least one year.

FArlington Construction Management
Briefly, we were extremely disappointed in the service provided by Arlington Construction Management/ACM and its founder/president Chad Hackmann. I was impressed with Chad when I met him; he seemed trustworthy and competent. Unfortunately, ACM did not live up to Chad?s sales pitch - and Chad himself turned out to be quite the bully. ACM failed to manage the quality of work, failed to manage the schedule, sequencing, and budget, and even failed to properly secure the jobsite. These are basic services that any CM or GC should do, and they were part of ACM?s contract. Ultimately, the contract was terminated, and I had to find someone else to take over (at great expense). ACM caused major delays ? which were really costly, since we were paying rent and mortgage throughout construction. Most troubling, Chad, who personally managed about 50% of the project, made inappropriate threats against us, demanded payments for work that was not complete, and tried to get us to sign a ?non disparagement agreement? waiving our rights to post a review of his company (which is completely against Angie?s List policies). Here is a longer description of our experiences, along with details on just a few of the issues we had with ACM (by the way, we have documentation on all of this and many more examples. We can provide more information if needed): No Quality Control: ACM neither supervised nor checked the work of their subcontractors. One example - the new framing was not straight, and it was not done per the drawings in several places. Chad made all sorts of excuses, but the framing was bad even for the brand new walls and closets that the framers had constructed from scratch.  During the drywall process, I had to point out problems in the installation ? which is completely backwards. Also several items weren't built according to the plans (for example, the drywall at the fireplaces and in the master bedroom). What were we paying ACM for if they weren?t even checking the quality of work or ensuring their subs were following the drawings?  Disregard for Our Budget: ACM didn?t mind if their subcontractors overcharged us. Going back to the framing example, the framing issues were discovered when the drywall and trim contractors came in. At that point, rather than having the framing crew come back out to fix their mistakes, ACM directed the trim contractors to fix the issues at an extra cost to us. So, we had to pay for shoddy work and then we had to pay to correct the shoddy work.          Failure to perform basic CM tasks: there are basic things that a CM or GC is supposed to do in construction ? cover the vents, make sure the work is properly sequenced, make sure the dumpster has a cover on it and is emptied promptly. ACM failed to do these things ? as a result, our HVAC system ended up full of drywall dust and debris which was a serious pain to clean out. Drywall and flooring got installed before the home had heating/AC turned on, which meant these items warped and cracked when the temperature changed. Our dumpsters would fill up with random people?s trash, dirty mattresses, etc (we live in an urban area) and we would have to pay to have this trash hauled out (each dumpster pull costs $400; at one point, this was happening 2 times a month!!). One weekend, ACM and their subcontractor didn?t secure the home when they left? so there was a break-in and all of the copper wiring and pipes were stolen.  It took months to recover the cost from the subcontractor's insurance but it should have come out of ACM's since their contract specifically stated that they were responsible for securing the jobsite on a daily basis. Chad fought hard against responsibility for that one.  Schedule: ACM didn?t manage the schedule or sequencing correctly. There would be 2 days when 5 contractors were in the house, working on top of each other and getting in each others? way, doing things out of order - and then weeks when nothing happened.  The drywall was supposed to take 8 days; instead it took 6 weeks ? and that didn?t even include finishing work! I asked him and his PMs to provide bids for certain items and trade work - things like shower doors, updated tile numbers, exterior trim, gas fireplaces, painting, door hardware - it would take weeks (in some cases months) to get numbers for this work. In some cases, the failure to get this pricing in a timely manner caused delays to the project. One of ACM's primary responsibilities as a construction manager was to secure bids like this. Eventually, as I saw how costly these types of delays were becoming, I had to take it upon myself to find subcontractors and vendors, secure pricing, and manage the bid process. Again - this is completely backwards - what were we paying ACM to do if not this very basic CM function? Other Issues: Chad tried to make us pay him for work that wasn?t complete. He demanded payments for tile and flooring? when the tile wasn?t fully installed and the flooring hadn?t been sanded or stained. ACM told us they had passed all rough-in inspections with the city; in fact, we found out later that the inspector withheld approvals on some of the MEP rough-in. Getting this resolved at the end of the project was a major headache, especially since Chad refused to provide the name of the 3rd party inspector he had hired to do the work and he never returned the permit drawings. He also refused to provide lien releases unless we signed a ?non-disparagement agreement? basically stating that we would not publish a review of his company online. This is totally against Angie?s List policies ? but maybe this is why there are no other negative reviews of ACM online right now. Our experience with ACM was extremely disappointing and I would warn against hiring them for your home renovation or for any other project.
