Gilbane /Christman
Project: Richmond CenterStage

“On behalf of the entire Gilbane-Christman team, I wanted to take a moment to recognize Ocean Drywall’s outstanding performance at the Richmond CenterStage project. This was an extremely challenging project both in terms of schedule and technical difficulty to construct and Ocean Drywall delivered high quality service surpassing our best expectations.
The details required to construct acoustically isolated wall and ceiling systems is by no means standard construction and Ocean was able to construct these difficult sequences on schedule and in coordination with the numerous other trades working in, around, and on top of Ocean. Both the acoustical engineer and the architect were highly complementary of Ocean Drywall’s work on the project, a feat not easily achieved.”

“I especially wanted to recognize Ashley Sorokes and his personal efforts towards making CenterStage a successful project for Gilbane-Christman. Ashley’s attention to detail, knowledge of his trade and ability to deliver on schedule were critical in our efforts to deliver this $60 million dollar project on time and on budget for the owner. Ashley was a constant on the project site and is one of the most reliable superintendents that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He understands his role, his responsibilities and he is true to his word when he makes commitments to get things done. All of these traits make him an asset to any project manager.”

Project: ODU Innovation Research Park Building Two

“I wanted to take a moment and congratulate you on a job well done! We contracted with Ocean Drywall to perform exterior framing, exterior sheathing, interior framing, drywall, and acoustical ceiling duties for the ODU Research Park, Building Two Core/Shell and Tenant Improvement
Projects. In each phase of construction and through some challenging moments, the ‘Ocean Team’ was responsive, courteous, and efficient and took a team-player approach to this project. Your forces continually worked well with other subcontractors and partnered with our management team to meet milestones and completion dates. The quality of your work was of a first-class nature and for any additional work, the pricing was fair and timely.”

“I cannot begin to tell you how rare it is to have the pleasure of working with an all around Class ‘A’ subcontractor. I know this mentality can only be achieved when it is supported from the top. Thank you for your efforts and I look forward to the opportunity for us to work together again on the next project.”
