Describe your partnership with O’Toole. Our relationship has grown to becoming “partners” over the years more so than a client working with a “contractor”. I say this since we have utilized O’Toole with numerous different projects over the years and we consider them part of our administrative “family” when making decisions as it pertains to facility renovations, new construction, updates, ambiance, interior design, etc.
