Through constant communication and monitoring of client and staff interactions, we were able to achieve a quick response to the changes in business requirements and restrictions.  Although our number of remodels was low during the last few years, we were attentive to customer needs and filled any gaps in supplies as quickly as possible.  In some cases the clients were willing to wait during delays.
