“On behalf of the Ohio National Guard, and the Directorate of Installation Management and Resources; I want to personally thank you and your engineer team at Star Consultants for a job well done in reference to your design and construction management of both the Hamilton Facilities Maintenance Shop, (FMS 11) and the Green Road (FMS 6) drive-through maintenance bay additions. Their two (2) bay additions were designed, estimated, bid and built within budget to include all bid alternates. Both bay additions were completed one week ahead of schedule and also under budget. The Military Construction Branch Chief, Lieutenant Colonel Greg Rogers, and the Project Officer, Bill Taylor; stated that your team was always approachable and responded in a timely matter on all ‘Request for Information’ issues throughout the course of design and construction. Your team received praise from both the Contractor, and the Shop Chief at FMS 111; First Sergeant Fee.
Take pride in the fact that these two facilities will serve the soldiers of the Ohio Army National Guard for generations to come. The facilities will be used to prepare soldiers and equipment in support of our nation’s wars and response to natural disasters. Your efforts have a direct effect on those missions. Well done!”

“I would like to take this opportunity to recommend the engineering services of Star Consultants, and particularly Ali Algothani, who successfully designed and managed construction of the HVAC Renovation for ODOT District 6 Headquarters. Throughout the course of the project, Star performed all tasks in an efficient, professional manner and collaborated well with all members of the Project Team. They exhibited professionalism, and cooperation and were able to see “The Big Picture” while still paying attention to detail. They listened, both during design and during construction, to meet the needs of not only the end users but the entire team.
All projects have challenges – Star effectively anticipated and resolved a number of issues before they caused problems. When unforeseen situations presented themselves, Star reacted promptly to resolve problems before they caused negative impacts to the project.
I am very pleased with the level of service provided by Star Consultants on the District 6 HVAC project.”

“As a registered architect, I am often very critical of the design team with whom I work on any project. I would like to take this opportunity to express how pleased I have been with the level of service provided by Star Consultants on the Bureau’s Chiller Replacement Project (BWC100001) and to document that Star has consistently provided a standard of professionalism that has surpassed my expectations.
As we discussed early in the design stage, this project’s success relied heavily on the project teams ability to maintain a reliable source of cooling in the William Green Building while replacing our 20 year old chillers. Your team’s commitment to meeting our project deadline made this possible.
Moreover, Star not only assembled a nearly perfect set of contract documents (an almost impossible task in todays world), but also provided thorough and insightful project management throughout the course of the project. I would also like to specifically commend you for your attention to detail and your ability to problem-solve in a timely manner. Star exhibited true professionalism in its ability to maintain impartially and in its understanding of those issues that had potential to negatively impact all parties and/or the project schedule and budget.
I would gladly work with Star Consultants again. Please feel free to list me as an Owner reference for any future projects that you might pursue.”

“The intent of this letter is to serve as a recommendation of services for STAR Consultants, Inc., with particular reference to the leadership capabilities of project manager Hamid Mukhtar and his team.
STAR Consultants, Inc. were selected, based on an RFQ process, to lead our multi-year Parking Lot Upgrade Projects. The selection process is qualification-based and we have been very pleased with the team’s engineering knowledge and our final products. The items important to BGSU, such as Construction Administration and prompt attention of issues, are areas that STAR Consultants, Inc. (Hamid and his staff) do very well. My experience with STAR Consultants, Inc. is primarily on civil projects, but the projects have always involved electrical aspects as well, but our single point of contact has always been STAR Consultants, Inc.
I have worked with them on many parking lot projects in the recent past and have high confidence in their ability. I would also recommend them to other owners based on my past experience with them.”

“I am pleased to provide you and your firm this letter of recommendation in consideration of the outstanding work that Star Consultants Inc. has performed over the years for the Adjutant Generals Department.
I have been working with Star Consultant since 1998 and they have provided Professional Architectural and Engineering Services for this agency on many projects. They have performed design and construction administration services for Building interior and Exterior Renovations, Heating System Upgrades/Replacements, Plumbing and Kitchen Upgrades/Remodeling, Window and Door Replacements, Electrical Renovations and Paving Rehabilitation Projects at several Ohio National Guard Armory sites throughout the state.
On these projects Star Consultant has responded to our needs on a very short notice. They provided whatever assistance we requested. Their firm was very prompt with providing drawings and project documents and paid very close attention to our needs. Star Consultant inc. followed through on their commitment to monitor all of the projects, as well as complete them and furnish us with all of the proper close out documents.
Star Consultants has never failed to respond to any problem at the project site and their attention to detail was excellent. Their ability to work with and oversee several different contractors made my work considerably easier. Their staff members have distinguished themselves as a knowledgable, reliable, responsible, and very supportive group.
Hamid, I appreciate all of your efforts and I am looking forward to the next opportunity and project that we will be working on together in the future.”
