"Tony DePaul and the team at BRI have enabled us to open our last four restaurant properties. Through their expertise, focus and attention to detail, BRI eliminated most all of the surprises associated with the demolition and the construction of a restaurant space. More importantly, working closely with Tony on the budget before the project started, facilitated completion on time and on budget. Cheers to the folks at BRI."

"Tony Depaul and Building Resources,INC. were chosen ,after a highly competitive bid process, to build our first restaurant, CIRCA at Dupont, four years ago...Since, we have retained them as consultant on another restaurant project, to build a coffee shop in the Rockville market , and they are currently constructing for us CIRCA at Foggy Bottom which is scheduled to open next month.
Tony's knowledge, attention to detail and cooperative personality serve him well when dealing with demanding clients and tight time constraints in the "wonderful world"of hospitality construction.
Tony and his company have our unqualified respect and appreciation . They are a credit to their profession in every way."

"Building Resources did an impeccable, first-rate job in building out CulinAerie. Tony DePaul and his staff and sub-contractors were professional, thorough, and skillful from the moment the first drywall lines
were drawn, to the most minute details of the punch list. Tony himself was on the premises virtually every day, and after we were open he would even come down and attend to the smallest details, such as applying small bumpers behind every door handle so the drywall wouldn't be damaged.
Not only did BRI come in ahead of schedule, they came in below budget. On seeing the nearly finished product, our architect walked around looking at the build out and noted with admiration the integrity of the build out, the perfectly plumb drywell, etc., saying that such high quality was very unusual in commercial build outs.
On the rare occasions when we've needed any troubleshooting, Tony always responds promptly. In addition, we use every sub-contractor that was involved in the original build out for our routine maintenance. In short, I can say with complete confidence that if there are additional CulinAerie properties, BRI will be the one to build them."

"In 2006, we first hired Tony to expand our then AIDA Bistro & Deli into a Bistro & Wine Bar. Under his direction, our restaurant was updated with a new foyer, a more functional kitchen and a main dining room. These renovations occurred while still serving our customers & without closing our business. The construction was less disruptive than we had anticipated and we were impressed by the cleanliness & timeliness of all sub contractors. These renovations exceeded our expectations and, most importantly, our customers!
So four years later, when we began our expansion into a new and larger site, we immediately contacted Tony. Tony began by reviewing our new lease and indentifying areas that might not be in our best interest. Tony listened to our vision for a unique Wine Bar and worked with us in choosing an architect. When the interior designer on the project did not “see” our vision, Tony reassured me that no replacement was needed and together we complete the job.
When an overlooked design problem delayed our permit approval, Tony refused to let the set back delay our move-in date. This meant a more aggressive construction schedule and all subs came together, often working overtime. After three hectic months of build-out, we were able to move-in on time AND under budget.
When problems arose, Tony handled them timely and with the utmost attention. It has been a joy to work with Tony, his project manager, and all of his subs. Tony is an honest, hard working and financially attentive builder.
We highly recommend Tony DePaul & Building Resource, Inc. for any construction project."
