Dear Jim:

I want to thank you and your workers for the excellent work that you recently completed at the church. As you know, this is the second time that we have engaged The Luse Company for asbestos abatement in our building. We choose Luse the second time because we had such a positive experience we you and your workers during our first construction project.

Once again I was very impressed by your attention to detail. You seem to have considered every part of the project and as a result the work was done quickly and effectively. Your staff provided clear and consistent communication with the church's staff and they were a pleasure to work with as well.

As you know, one of the largest challenges of this project was the fact that we have a full-time day care program in the church. With more than 70 children in the building, your willingness to schedule this work during the night time hours was a big bonus for us.

After we informed the parents of the day care program that this work was going to take place, several of them expressed concern about the safety of the project. By taking the time to come to the church and bring your air quality expert to an open meeting, we were able to allay their concerns. Your openness, transparency, and obvious concern about the safety issues involved, put the parents at ease and it made the project much easier to manage from my end.

Thank you again for a job well done. We will certainly be using you and Luse again when our next abatement work needs to be done.
