  • Terry is one of the most impressive project managers I have worked with in my 36 years of construction experience. Permitting is a critical part of any construction project schedule. He truly manages the permitting process and gets results.–Douglas E. Barnhart, Developer, General Contractor Name

  • Terry is a key factor in the success of our Cancer Center project. As a member of our Design Build team, it was Terry’s job to manage the interface with the City and the special districts on all required permits. We met our fast track schedule, because Terry is “best-of-class” in securing entitlements.–Pat Nemeth, Vice President Sharp Healthcare

  • One of the biggest challenges on a project for the architectural team is the entitlement process and document flow through the agency reviews. Terry worked very closely with our design team in a truly collaborative spirit to simplify the process and assist us throughout the entire design and planning phase of the project. NTD Architecture was very impressed with Terry’s knowledge and leadership and looks forward to future opportunities.–Wayne Hunter, Partner NTD Architecture

  • Twenty-two medical office parks simply wouldn’t have been developed if it weren’t for Terry Strom. In 2005, the process of getting entitlements and permits were bringing our company to a halt. That’s when Terry stepped in, grabbed the bull by the horns and more than met our expectations. In fact, he created a whole new genre of must-have consultants. I recommend him unequivocally.–Ed Anderson, Medical Real Estate Development
