  • “It is with great pleasure that I relay to you the compliments we get on our building.  Everyday we have customers shopping at our store telling us how impressed they are with the design of our structure.  AKRA Builders has been a pleasure to deal with, from the start of our project through completion and subsequent follow through.  Your handling the “details” made it possible for us to focus on our business and not be consumed with construction problems or set backs.  The resulting facility is one I know we will be proud of for years to come.” Paul E.
