Colasanti Group

"One of my favorite trade partners to work with. We appreciate all the hard work Foundation Steel has brought to the table on The Vanguard project!"

Tiffany Polley │ Project Engineer                            

GPRS (Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc.)

"Thank you Foundation Steel LLC and Rudolph Libbe Group for your outstanding work and for bringing our vision to reality! This will be the best facility in the world for training on Ground Penetrating Radar use in #concretescanning applications!"

Matt Aston │ President

"Great job installing all of the rebar and cables for our one-of-a-kind training slab. And thanks for accommodating all of my nitpicky requests. Everything was placed intentionally so that we can train on very specific concepts to prepare our PM’s for what they will see in the field. Your team was great to work with. "

Jamie Althauser │ Training Director


"Connecting with Foundation Steel as a valued trade partner has turned into a blessing for our company. Our first job with them was the foundation, core walls, and slab package at Promedica Hospital in Toledo. They are honest, committed, safety conscious, and work hard to bring value to the table. They are not the "not my problem" kind of company, but rather "let's tackle this together" type. How refreshing!

After a couple more jobs in SE Michigan, our superintendents were clamoring for us to use them on more jobs. We were fortunate to get them to dip their toe in the water into the mid-Michigan market on a large Cheese Cake Factory concrete package, with a very demanding schedule. The CM is thoroughly amazed at our production. Thank you, Danny!

They are an outstanding company, with great leadership from the office and the field. I know our competitors have the same high regard for them, and we are all looking forward to their growth into all markets throughout Michigan, Ohio, and beyond."

MBA Energy & Industrial

Todd, we would like to take a minute to tell you how appreciative we are of Foundation Steel's erector service. We have been around metal buildings for a couple of decades and we are very impressed with Foundation Steel's performance.

Please note the following:
Schedule: Foundation Steel was able to erect the building several days ahead of schedule. We are very appreciative of your willingness to work around and with other crews to accommodate the critical path.

Quality: Your quality and attention to detail has been fantastic. We are very appreciative of your willingness to achieve everything our client expected.

Safety: On the wind farm, where safety performance is constantly under the microscope, your crew performed wonderfully. We never had a concern with your practices. Our HSE director has held your crew as the example of erector performance.

"I recommend your services to anyone in the market." Thank you for your service!

Brad Christensen | Project Manager

Mosser Construction

Charlotte, your team demonstrates a strong competency in every aspect of a project, including design, troubleshooting, communication, collaboration, and true ownership of problem resolution. From AEP, Upper Sandusky; to the Hancock Hotel, Findlay, OH; to Saint John XXIII Catholic Church, Perrysburg, OH; to name a few, each project exhibited the highest level of organization, quality and integrity. Foundation Steel is a trusted partner who consistently contributes to our shared success.

Rick Kusmer | Senior Project Manager

Turner Construction

"Foundation Steel was a true partner working through a late delivery of pre-engineered metal building siding. Foundation Steel provided an innovative solution by resequencing the work to minimize the schedule impact with their solution which ultimately allowed the project to be completed on schedule and meet the Owner’s expectations."
