- Bruce Lathers, Manager of Construction Services – Salem-Keizer Public Schools

"Ricardo, it was a pleasure to work with you. You conducted yourself in a professional and customer service oriented manner. Your efforts were extraordinary and exceeded my expectations. You represent a desire for excellence and always show a desire to meet the owner's objectives.

- Marc Bevens – Architect – Formerly Partner with Soderstrom Architects

"I have worked with a lot of great construction management professionals in my career, but only a small few who contribute the combination of knowledge, skill and relationship building that Ricardo brings to the project team. Ricardo understands that construction management means combining and aligning the interests of owner, general contractor, architects, engineers, sub-contractors and local permitting authorities into a unified effort. When the project is tough, schedule is tight, design complex and the owner's expectations are high, there is no one I would find better suited to ensure success than Ricardo. He gets it."

I appreciated his dependability which simplifies my role, knowing that I can count on him to keep the owner's interests in site."
- Jerry Milstead, Crook County School District – Formerly Owner of Milstead & Associates

"I had the pleasure of working with Ricardo on three projects while I was with the Beaverton School District. All of the projects were completed using the CM/GC method of contracting which involved heavy emphasis on pre-construction planning. I was impressed by Ricardo's leadership during the entire project but in particular how he was a difference maker during the early planning stages of the project. Ricardo is adept in his communication skills and is a strong team-builder. He takes the clients goals & objectives to heart and formulates action plans in a collaborative manner to ensure that they are achieved. I offer Ricardo my highest recommendation."
- Jim Owens – Executive Director Office of School Modernization, Currently Portland Public Schools

- Sandy Husk – Superintendent, Salem-Keizer Public Schools

 "Ricardo went the extra mile during the pre-con phase to provide cost saving ideas and methods to ensure the budget went as far as it could be stretched. During construction he held the contractors and personnel to a high standard of performance while carefully tracking the budget. The owner and I were very happy with the result. Ricardo is a team player that brings honesty and integrity to any construction project along with a great working knowledge of the industry. He is quick to offer solutions to challenges that may come up during the project and does so in a collaborative manner."
- Paul Bentley, President – Paul L. Bentley Architect, AIA PC

"Ricardo Becerril is not an average construction manager. He is far above average because he understands well the management concepts needed for CM work and what it means to "join" the owners team. Additionally he has a management style that works well with the A/E team, and maximizes the work of the construction subcontractors. He displays above average communication skills and computer skills which greatly benefit the client. I worked with Ricardo on a project where he met regularly with city and county regulators, and with other projects stakeholders to negotiate mutually beneficial outcomes and keep the project moving forward. He also facilitated aggressive value engineering and fast track scheduling efforts that turned the new school building into a successful project. I would strongly recommend Ricardo Becerril for any senior level position in the arena of construction management."|
