BBM Incorporated has had the pleasure of working with SGCC for over 11 years through a variety of new construction and build-out projects.


With SGCC bids were always competitive, every project stayed true to projected cost, subcontractors felt respected, and relationships maintained.


It’s rare that contractors truly understand their clients’ perspective and advocate on their behalf. Balancing the interests of both contractor and owner can be challenging. SGCC knows how to ask the right questions to get things done right the first time.


SGCC never compromised our trust and ensured

the work was always of the highest caliber.

I was thrilled to hear about the nomination of Sequoia General Contracting for the Small Business of the Year award from the Chamber of Commerce. This is a much deserved award for a business that has done so much to establish and maintain a reputation of service, quality and integrity. They have continued to prove that quality work with service and integrity is the recipe for success.

We have been working with Sequoia General Contracting Corp. for several years. We are always impressed with the quality of their service, personal attention, integrity and professionalism. It is a rarity to find a contractor that is willing to spend the extra time to really understand the needs of their clients and displays the desire to go the extra mile to service them. As an architect, it is our goal to create beautiful spaces. Sequoia works hard at ensuring that the spaces we design come to fruition as we had planned. It is a joy working with the whole Sequoia Team.

Troy Architects has worked with Sequoia General Contracting Corp. on a number of successful projects over the past few years. Sequoia was selected as the General Contractor because of their integrity, attention to detail, punctuality, and prompt communication. While Owners appreciate all of these qualities, they truly value the competitive pricing Sequoia provides.

Troy Architects highly recommends Sequoia as a Commercial General Contractor and confident that they will deliver a successful project. Troy Architects looks forward to the opportunity of working with Sequoia again in the future and would not hesitant in recommending them to our clients!

My family and I want to express our most sincere appreciation and thanks for the hard work and outstanding efforts provided by Sequoia General Contracting Corporation in the demolition of our "fully depreciated" 150 year old building and construction of a new one in downtown Naperville.

The location and nature of our building project was unique in many ways. Orchestrating a successful demolition at one of the busiest intersections of downtown Naperville was the first step. A number of unanticipated below grade surprises tested everyone's resolve and were overcome, leading to a fall groundbreaking. Construction progressed through a memorable polar vortex where I got to learn what "winter conditions" meant. An extra wet spring ensured us of further delays on the beautiful new streetscape initiated at what some named "ground zero" of downtown Naperville. We are happy to have ushered in the beginnings of a new downtown streetscape and creation of a new "historic" building at our corner.

After everything was negotiated, you took control and made a very tedious development come off without a hitch. What a great experience!! You navigated every detail flawlessly and stood firm behind your word. Your professionalism has netted a beautiful, functional new development in Naperville and has given me more credibility. I thank you for EVERYTHING and eagerly await our next project together.

Sequoia has played a vital role in the successful opening of multiple tenants at the shopping center since if first opened in June 2008. They have exhibited exemplary efforts in implementing capital improvements which have contributed to the project being well-kept, safe and up-to-date. I look forward to the continued relationship with Sequoia General Contracting Corp. and endorse their work for other projects.

We want to thank you, Luis and your other teammates for making our new office something we are all proud of. Your leadership, proactive communication, and coordination skills were fantastic, and we couldn’t be happier. You manage unrealistic cost expectations masterfully, something that easily goes overlooked. From design input, permitting, landlord and tenant issues to the punch list Sequoia was very professional. Thank you again for helping us create a better place to work!

Sequoia was a pleasure to work with as we built our business. They walked us through each step of the way and always made us feel at ease throughout the process. Even in the midst of deadlines and permitting, working with Sequoia took the stress of out the building process and allowed us to focus on our customers.

I want to thank you for the great work you and Steve did throughout the remodel of the Allstate suite at The Corner. Given the extremely short time frame of two weeks we had to work with, it was remarkable that you were able to work with the subs and the City of Naperville permitting units to meet the aggressive goal. I really appreciated your up-to-the-minute communication and updates as we worked through issues during construction.  In total, it was a 'job well done'. I look forward to working with you and Sequoia again when the need arises.

Mike Stengle and the entire team at Sequoia General Contracting were fantastic to work with as my office space was built out. 

Under a constrictive timeline and with a number of specs/special orders that I required for my build out, Sequoia met every challenge with a “can-do” and proactive approach that focused on the project and not any of the pressures.  Mike delivered an A+ build out, within budget and onetime.  I don’t know many GC’s that could have completed each of these facets of the job like Sequoia did. 

I am pleased to recommend Sequoia for your next project and I look forward to using them in the future.  Thank you Sequoia!

Just wanted to thank you and the staff today for our official move. It was a seamless experience working with everyone. Most importantly the team at Sequoia and even more Joe Brooks. He was an asset to the entire project, from every detail to deadline. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect person to work with. This is really an exciting time for all of us. I wanted to personally reach out and thank you and look forward to building this relationship with you.

I don’t know where to begin when it comes to thanking you for what you’ve done to help get this business off the ground. Tim Clark and Sequoia have been absolutely pivotal every step of the way. I know this isn’t the biggest job, but you have been treating it like it is and I speak for my team when I say that you make us feel like this is the most important gig you’ve got going right now. That really means a lot to us.
Hard work like yours should always be recognized and I want to thank you for all that you did. Just wanted to share our gratitude for your time and talents.
