We take pride in providing the best quality construction project for our clients on time and within budget.
I want to thank the entire project team for geting this job done in an extremely tight schedule:
To Barry & Mike, for making the permit happen and for responding to issues during construction, and especially to Raj, Rena, Linwood, Deirdre and the project team at Capitol Paving for completing construction in under six weeks from the notice to proceed date. Just a great example of what we can do when we work together.
I would like to commend you and your staff for achieving a score of 96.0% specification compliance on the CQIP project review completed on January 16, 2008. This specification compliance score exceeds our NOVA District goal of 92.5% and is a measure of quality construction taking place on the jobsite.
It is quite evident that Capitol Paving of D.C. takes pride in performing quality work in conformance with the plans and specifications.
Very truly yours,
Michael J. Rosenfeld
On behalf of VDOT’ s Northern Virginia District, I would like to take this opportunity to thank and congratulate you on the successful completion of the Route 236 Little River Turnpike Improvement Project.
Under your leadership, you brought only the most qualified and experienced staff members to the project. Each and every member of your team played a large role in dealing with the many challenges we were confronted with along the way. Throughout the project, your crews and subcontractors worked long hours, weekends and even holidays to complete the project ahead of schedule and with the highest quality.
I am also writing you to extend special thanks and appreciation for the fine work and dedication of your Project Manager, Mr. Ralph Leo. From my personal interactions with Mr. Leo and the feedback I received from my staff, we were truly honored to be working side by side with him each and every day.
In closing, I wish you and the Capitol Paving Team the best of success in the future and look forward to the next opportunity to work together!

To the management: I am writing to express my appreciation for the work that was successfully completed this week on my house to remove the lead pipes and to offer some nice words on the workers.
I have a beautiful garden in front of my house that not only has cost a lot of money for the plants and shrubs, but also I labor over the garden every weekend.
Two of your supervisors left me a note saying they wanted to talk to me about the work they had to perform and my nice garden. Needless to say, I was very worried they would dig up my garden and ruin it.
The two gentlemen who came to see me, Carlos Costa and foreman Antonio Batista went out of their way to assure me that they would take every precaution and every measure to protect my front yard, as they noted how nice it was and how much time and money they figured had gone into making it as nice as it is. I was doubtful and expected my front yard garden to be destroyed.
I came home at noon and saw a giant hole in the garden and was sure it was going to be horrible when I returned home from work. What I found when I got home that evening surprised me to say the least.
The yard was not only as nice as it was before they started digging but they also watered my plants and cleaned the stoop and steps.
They were not only extremely professional, but very, very nice — far beyond what you would expect. They went out of their way to protect my property, they did a very professional job and they were gentlemen and a pleasure to work with.
They certainly deserve recognition and many thanks from me.

At one point, we said to Jo-Elle that she made us very happy to pay our DC taxes – probably not a comment you hear too often, but we mean it! Her skill as project director made residents feel like participants in helping to improve and preserve Rock Creek.
We have lived in our home since 1973, and we never thought we’d invite visitors to walk to the alley behind our house to admire its beauty and function. Now we do.
But even more positive than result of the work of Jo-Elle Burgard and her team of DDOT employees, and those from Capital Paving and KCI, the process was extraordinarily positive as well.
Jo-Elle was our contact throughout the process, and she did an outstanding job of communication/constituent relations. The project required affected residents to modify parking and trash collection patterns for a period of months.
Jo-Elle was responsive and effective: when several older residents indicated to her that due to physical incapacity our trash cans needed to remain in the tree boxes throughout the week (not pulled back up into our yards), she coordinated with DPW to ensure that we were not fined; when others feared that construction of rain gardens on Rittenhouse would prevent their parking close to an accessible entry to their home, Jo-Elle convened a meeting of residents at the spot of the planned construction, listened attentively and resolved all concerns quickly and effectively. She coordinated with another family on the alley who had planned a major backyard construction project during the summer: they were able to proceed and complete their project due to her management of the timing of our portion of the alley work.
At one point, we said to Jo-Elle that she made us very happy to pay our DC taxes – probably not a comment you hear too often, but we mean it! Her skill as project director made residents feel like participants in helping to improve and preserve Rock Creek. We had less interaction with the others from DDOT, KCI and Capital Paving, but every exchange we did have was pleasant and positive – and the quality of their work was impressive in all regards.
We are both retired journalists, and Elder spent decades reporting and writing about local (and state) governments across the U.S. That, as you well know, is where government is closest to the people, and the people are often more ready to complain than to compliment government’s work. Well, we hope you consider this letter – the content of which reflects the views of our neighbors as well as ourselves – a compliment – to Jo-Elle, her team, DDOT/DOE/DPW, KCI and Capital Paving, and DC government generally.
We do thank you all – very much,
