We just arrived in New Marlborough about an hour ago and as soon as I saw the pool I said to my wife that I wanted to call you. It is largely dug out at this point and we needed up extremely close to your design. We love it! Stephen


I have just come from an afternoon at the pool. In any direction one gazes, there are beautiful blooms and vistas. Serenity and beauty l abound in the home of my dear cousins and friends. To them and their talented team, gratitude for the sanctuary they have created.

“Over time, once construction commenced, Craig OL’s involvement included some cost estimating, multiple design concepts, as well as detailed design and layout. One aspect of the development was the design and construction of a new 50’x 25’ pool, deck and pool house. Craig not only assisted with the design but was primarily responsible for the selection of contractors for that aspect of the overall project as well as overseeing the bidding process. His referral of the successful contractor resulted in a significant savings compared to the other bids.”

Craig has been especially effective during public participation that is required throughout project development and implementation.  He and his staff have always been sensitive to responding to community input and concerns arising during numerous public presentations, which in turn has helped to maintain strong support for projects.
