I have had a great partnership with the Holsman’s over the past 15 years.  As an Entertainment Project Manager/ Owner Representative I want simple.  I can honestly say that APX accomplished that task with a formidable design team, quality fabrication, excellent coordination with site structural engineers, outstanding permitting support and first-rate installation services.  Whether it was Gameworks or House of Blues I never had to worry about the signage package scope of work.

Melissa and I had the pleasure of working with Bill on several projects at University Hospitals for their Vision 2010 strategic projects.  Bill was excellent and navigating the team through the processes on very difficult skyline signage installations at both Seidman Cancer Center and Ahuja Medical Center.  Installing skyline signage on active project sites and coordinating with all of the other construction activities was quite a challenge, but Bill and his team of professionals were able to deliver both projects on-time and on-budget. We also used Bill for signage on our own commercial campus and as with the UH projects, it was done professionally and looks fantastic.  We look forward to working with this team again on future projects.
