Testimonials

“This project was very complex and had a lot of details that needed to be lined out. Our Ruby Project Manager was extremely helpful in moving the project along.”

- Debra Marten, Alberici

“We are presented with multiple options and recommendations, and that’s one of the things that makes us continue to work with Ruby. They’ve always been out of the box thinkers.”

- Bruce Rysztak, Barton Malow Company

“Ruby made our Flint, Fort Wayne, and Arlington body shop expansions more efficient. The early detailing with the fabricators was a huge help.”

- John Raad, PE, General Motors

"Until I die or win the lottery, I will always push for Ruby on our projects. They are by far the best structural engineers around."

- Carl Wingert Sr., Overhead Conveyor Company

“They hit the project head on, delivered what we needed when we needed it, and most importantly, listened to our needs and our constructability issues.”

- Brian Lamerson, Rudolph Libbe

“Ruby has a wonderful perspective with different client types. It stands out because they have that inherent respect for the crew that is going to be doing the work. They know the lingo, and have a great understanding of what makes the building come together.”
