TESTIMONIALS

“I never dreamed that it would take more than four years to get town and state approval for our new field, especially when we were building it for students for whom time is very precious.  Today, the field that RAD Sports built was truly enjoyed by some very special people.  When those wheelchairs moved across the field, I thought of the careful attention to detail that Derek took in making this field just perfect.  Your incredible building team had our students in mind when you took an inaccessible swamp and made it into a fully accessible playing field in 3 weeks.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!”

“You accepted the challenge with a limited summer construction schedule and delivered an outstanding project, on time, on budget and with the highest standards of workmanship.  In less than 12 weeks, you transformed our campus and created athletic facilities which now match the high standards we set for our students who use the facilities.  The quality of your work has had a very positive effect on the BC High students who use the facilities.”

Brian Maher

Executive Director of Capitol Planning and Technology | Boston College High School | Dorchester, MA

“As the athletic director for Bentley College, I worked very closely with RAD Sports on a recently completed field renovation project costing in excess of one million dollars.  This company did an excellent job in every aspect associated with a project of this size.  Numerous difficulties were presented toward this project and RAD Sports met each one of these challenges in a first-class manner.  Timetables were adhered to, change orders were non-existent, and lines of communication were well established.”

Robert DeFelice

Director of Athletics | Bentley College | Waltham, MA

“When RAD Sports wins one of our projects we are all able to breathe easier.  They bring competitive pricing, years of experience, and exceptional attention to detail.  Their knowledge of the industry is invaluable and we continue to look to them as a resource time and time again.”

Dan Kroeber

Milone and Macbroom | Architects for Cheshire High School | Cheshire, CT

From the start, RAD Sports personnel worked closely with us to make sure this project met our needs and was completed in a timely fashion.  I have worked with many construction companies in my 25 years as Athletic Director and I rank you at the top of the list in the construction of athletic facilities.”
