"When we were working on the WAC budget, CDI was quick to find efficiencies in methods and materials rather than remove scope to get us where we needed to be. The WAC never felt like the project program was compromised during the VE Process."
— David Swain, Walton Arts Centers Owners' Representative regarding WAC remodel and expansion

"CDI's reputation for excellent construction quality, schedule control, and creative and detailed project management has never been more evident than in their work on the new and renovated Robinson Center project. They have provided guidance through challenging logistical site constraints and the ever-revealing aspects of renovating a 75-year-old buiIding. Their performance has been stellar."
— David Porter, Polk Stanley Wilcox Architects regarding Robinson Center romodel and expansion
CDI has earned a reputation for consistently delivering quality results. Owners value our attention to quality in every aspect of construction. Our focus on quality extends throughout the entire construction process. Every decision we make and every action we take is viewed through the lens of quality. By partnering with subcontractors who share our commitment to quality, we’re able to ensure that you’ll be delighted with the quality results we deliver. When it comes to quality, no other construction manager has higher standards than CDI.
"CDI’s diligence and perseverance was exemplary in completing a very complicated project that had a very short construction schedule. And the quality of work was in keeping with the high standards of Cabela’s and the Design Team. Overall, CDI was an excellent partner in the construction of the Rogers store and Callison looks forward to collaborating with them again on future projects."
— Glen Matsui, Callison Architects regarding the Cabela's store in Rogers, Arkansas
By combining our construction expertise with our unsurpassed communications processes, we promise to:
- Be your construction advocate

- Be on call regarding your facility long after typical warranty expiration
"The gentlemen at CDI were a joy to work with. They really pushed hard at the finish to get us back in 404 W. Maple in time to welcome the new members. I would totally recommend them to anyone on a large scale construction job. Very professional but also just great guys to work with."
— Linda Herberger, Kappa Delta Zeta Gamma Chapter, University of Arkansas regarding the new sorority house
