John, I just wanted to say thank you for coming down and taking care of us and especially the work you did on our fields. They look great! I am very hopeful that with the suggestions you gave our Sports Coordinator that we can continue to have them in use for a while longer. We will definitely keep up a maintenance schedule to keep them in good shape. All the best and thanks again,

A very special thanks to John Schedler without whom this project could not have been completed on time. His expertise and thirty plus years of experience has been critical in the success of this project in spite of all the challenges that have arisen. His ability to work with the installers and improvise and overcome has been impressive. He simply would not give up on this project no matter how many challenges arose.

What Baraka Sport LLC Can Do For You

We offer a wide arrange of services that start with Owner Representation to ensure your project turns out exactly the way you expect. The nature of the project can range from new construction to replacement or renovation of existing facilities. Baraka Sport can help guide you though the myriad of vendors and contractors to help build and select the perfect team for your project. Once the team is put together Baraka Sport can help manage the project with only your best interests in mind. No agenda other than TRUE OWNER REPRESENTATION. Whether it be an RFP process or GSA or Cooperative Purchasing we have the experience and can help get you exactly what you want.

More and more facilities are showing signs of warranty related issues. Working with your vendor may be slow and frustrating. Baraka Sport can help facilitate a speedy solution and bypass the delays and potential costs vendors might bring to the table. By hiring an expert Owner’s Representative for these sort of issues the situation will be handled much differently. Owners will have all the necessary information to make an informed decision on the situation rather than a one-sided or self serving series of delays and offers.
