Terry Rozell, Fire Chief SCESD2
"I started working with WRL General Contractors on two new fire stations. One located in Arp, Texas and one in Flint, Texas in early 2019. We’re also working with WRL through the construction manager at risk method. Both projects are around $2 million each and approximately 10,725 sq feet. During these projects, I have worked with Ricky Bell as my project manager and Roy Shafer as the superintendent. Beyond the two dedicated to the project, the WRL family has provided outstanding quality and service in all aspects of the job. WRL is a professional organization focused on completing each project in an efficient, cost-effective, professional and safe manner. WRL worked side by side with our design team and administration in the construction of our new buildings. WRL has been extremely responsive on every question or issue and has become a true partner with Smith County Emergency Services District 2. "
Lee Sleeper, Director or Operations and Technology, Bullard ISD
"I have worked with WRL on multiple projects over the past 15years. The projects have ranged from large, multi-million dollar projects to smaller remodeling projects. During those projects, I have had the opportunity to work with a variety of WRL employees, including site superintendents, project managers, hourly employees, sub-contractors, and main office personnel. More importantly, they have brought all of the projects in on schedule, even when it meant working seven day weeks. My philosophy in dealing with any vendor, whether it’s a construction project or a technology project, is to build a partnership with that vendor. I believe that Bullard ISD and WRL have an excellent partnership. I also look at any additional services that bring added value to the district. WRL has been exceptional in providing extended warranty support on their projects to the benefit of the district. I will be more than happy to answer any questions you have concerning WRL."
Richard H. Oates, Jr. - Wyoming Machinery Company and Dragline Service Specialties
"WRL General Contractors was contracted by Wyoming Machinery Company to design build our new dragline service specialties (DSS) facility located in Tyler, TX in 2018. WRL General Contractors provided excellent communication and documentation at all levels of our organization. WRL was integral in providing solutions and recommendations throughout the design phase of the project. In November 2018 we entered into an AIA guaranteed maximum price amendment. The project was completed under budget and exceeded our expectations in quality. WRL and their subcontractors had no safety issues and were well organized and great to work with."
Lorne Burris, Facilities PMO Manager, Brookshires Grocery Company
"I have worked with WRL General Contractors since I first started at Brookshire Grocery Company 5 years ago. Since that time, they have completed several successful projects. Just a few of those include our new Super 1 Foods store in South Tyler and a full remodel of our Brookshire’s store in Bullard, Texas. They were also recently selected to be our Design/Build contractor for our corporate facilities remodel initiative which began last year with a full remodel of our corporate office lobby. They are very attentive to their client’s needs and expectations even with the occasional change in project scope or direction. WRL has been a great partner to work with always doing whatever it takes to deliver a project both they and Brookshire Grocery Company can be proud of. Based off all my experience with them I feel very confident in recommending WRL General Contractors for any projects you might be considering them. "
Dr. Chris Moran, Superintendent, Whitehouse ISD
"I believe in the work WRL is doing for school districts as a result of the performance and strength the organization brings to the table. Bob Leavine, owner of WRL, is attentive and has very high expectations for his company. The job superintendents are professionals and possess the skill to oversee subcontractors and demand the very best, while working closely and effectively with school personnel."
Kevin McCarthy, Director of Operations, Brownsboro ISD
"It is great to see that there are companies like WRL that go the extra mile to satisfy a customer like BISD. Many companies would only do what the plans call for and not anymore, whether right or wrong. During the past 4 years, WRL has consistently looked beyond the blueprints to help make the necessary changes to benefit BISD."
Jim Wright, Superintendent of Schools, Bullard ISD
"It has been my pleasure to work with Mr. Bob Leavine, his project managers, and the job superintendents assigned to the various scopes of work. Mr. Leavine and his staﬀ take great pride in the final project and always look after the customer’s best interests. Their attitude, ethics, and experience have truly made this experience rewarding."
Michael R. Payne, Superintendent, Carlisle ISD
"WRL pays close attention to the financial issues of each project. In fact, two of the projects were completed for less than the guaranteed maximum cost. Their monthly project reports reflected not only the progress of the job, but also provided a clear financial status of the job."
Jim Dunlap, Superintendent, Hallsville ISD
"Workmen from WRL were always professional, reliable, courteous, and respectful of school district personnel, district policy and procedures. They were always so positive and willing to satisfy our wishes. Their knowledge and experience about the various projects was evident."
James K. “Red” Brown, President, Lindale ISD Board of Trustees
"WRL is a professional organization focused on completing each project in an eﬃcient, eﬀective, professional and safe manner. WRL worked side by side with our board, administrators, and educators in constructing a number of new buildings while renovating others, our most recent project exceeding 40 million dollars. WRL has been extremely responsive with their ‘service after the sale’. WRL truly became a ‘Partner in Education’ in all aspects during their time in our district. "
