I was the project manager overseeing the reconstruction of the Men’s and Women’s restrooms at First Baptist Church of Indio. Edwin Vela was chosen because of his “can do” attitude and his willingness to work within our limited budget. Our bathrooms were last constructed in early 1970’s. Ed ran into many unforeseen problems, plumbing issues inside and outside of our church. Being a man of integrity, Ed stuck within our budget and tackled these issues on his own. In fact he went beyond that. In an unrelated issue he pointed out obvious water damage in a hallway due to rain; repaired it and gave advice on how to prevent re-occurrence of this issue. The project did go passed scheduled end date. However, it is understood why and welcomed. Ed went beyond his call. Tile, paint, and color schemes were based on his recommendation. We now have commercial bathrooms (both within ADA standards) that have a touch of class. He gave our bathrooms an inviting feel and softness. Ed and his employees were very respectful, easy to work with, and easy to talk to. We are very happy with the results of his work. Vela Construction did a job well done. I recommend them for your construction needs.
