We have worked with Toro Engineering from 2009 to date on several medical projects where they provided preconstruction services as well as completed the project as General Contractor. Mark Shaughnessy, provided management and Clement Babin and Max Perez were the job superintendents.

All of our projects have been related to updating the facilities for physical accessibility including sitework nd interior elements. The Owner of the facilities is HCA the largest Healthcare Management company in the world. They have very precise tolerances for the work Toro and their subcontractors performed the work well to meet those precise tolerances. Another aspect of the projects was allowing the facilities to minimize downtime of the rooms where the work was done. Often this was done by working on the weekends but sometimes while the facilities was operation. All facilities were very pleased with the way they conducted themselves and with their planning and communication leading up to each phase of the work. In particular, Research Medical Center and Psych Center in Kansas City Missouri was a very challenging project due to size and the age of the building while maintaining the high standards mentioned above.

I would recommend Toro Engineering & Construction to any facility and particularly to facilities with complex planning and construction required.

Research Medical Center

I’m writing this “Letter of Recommendation” for both Toro Engineering and Mark Shaughnessy who I have worked with on a major ADA court order project for HCA Corporate. The ADA project consisted of approximately 1882 different line items. These items went from very major renovation to install grab bars in a handicap restroom. The scheduling and coordination that it took with the different hospital department and staff to accomplish a project of this magnitude in the amount of time allotted by HCA Corporate is a true testament that Toro Engineering is by far a grade above most General Contractors. This was a very difficult project as it involved infection control to protect patient and staff, scheduling work around critical areas and the ability to stop and start work due to patient needs and still maintain a completion date set by corporate.

Toro Engineering & Construction has the passionate, awareness and understanding, plus the design criteria and construction management knowledge requirement to assist the customer relating to any renovation and/or new construction projects especially in a healthcare environment.

I know you will be delighted with Toro Engineering staff and versatility as a General Contracting firm. I had a working relationship with Mark and Toro Engineering in both a personal and healthcare field. This is a company you can have faith in and be satisfied with the end results. I have been in this business for almost 50 years and Toro Engineering by far is the best contractor that I have the pleasure working with when it comes to renovation projects and we know these type of projects are not easy.

To ensure the quality of service to my clients, I was very cautious about which Contractors I would work with. A poor contractor will make the best of architects look bad. I turned away many contractors requesting opportunities to work on my projects. Thomas Shaughnessy was able to break through the barrier; he presented a business model for a construction firm which I immediately thought was right for my clients. The service your firm delivers has continued to be top-notch throughout the years. I am proud to have recommended your firm on many different projects – restaurants, medical office buildings, banks, car dealerships, general office build-outs and many alteration projects. I am proud to have worked with a firm of this quality, and believe you have helped to keep my reputation high in this very competitive business.

I would like to take this time to recommend Toro Construction to your organization. Toro was responsible for the reconstruction of our school and church. Both of these buildings were badly damaged after Hurricane Andrew… The entire Toro organization is to be commended for their professionalism and workmanship displayed in the rebuilding of Sacred heart School and Church.

The building was completed on time, with great attention to detail by the subcontractors as well as Toro Engineering… The Specifications for this project were not typical of South Florida construction yet Toro Engineering was accommodating and efficient as they adjusted to the different standards and methods of construction required for this project. I am grateful for the efforts and performance of Toro Engineering and their subcontractors on this project and look forward to other opportunities to work with your company on future LDS projects.
