What clients say about The Sextant Group, now NV5

We usually do our own AV design, but I’m so glad we didn’t — Sextant [now NV5] was worth every penny!Jonathan Sibray
IT Director, University of Colorado Boulder
In my opinion, the RFP in your spec is one of the best written RFP’s I have seen. In my opinion it very clearly describes the intent and requirements for the subs, enabling us and the owner to hold them accountable to provide complete functional systems. So I guess I’m trying to say… Thanks for your efforts and attention to detail!Michael Brumley, P.E., LEED AP

I have no doubt your faculty development workshop will transform our concept of learning and set the stage for what is possible for years to come.Sandy Bretz
