They do quality work.

We have been fortunate enough to do a number of post construction cleans for Direct Steel and Direct Design over the years. They have their projects well thought out and orchestrated. They give us great notice of when the job will be done. So we can schedule well and do our job in a professional manner. They are not a "last minute-rush to get it done" company. They do quality work and they are one of the most professional companies we have worked for in our 28 years in business. Working with them makes us look good. They are great. John Pletz, President ServiceMaster by Pletz Crystal Lake, IL.

Nothing is too small, or too large for these folks.

The communications throughout the project are second to none. With a daily onsite manager, I NEVER found myself looking for answers, rather the onsite manager was approaching me daily with updates/changes before a question would present itself. This was truly a TEAM effort. Knowing the Direct team was handling our rebuild relieved an inordinate amount of stress so I could stay focused on my job at hand and not left to worry about the building of the new terminal. I could not recommend Direct Steel, LLC enough. Having managed numerous facilities over the years from very small up to multibillion dollar operations, I could not imagine hiring anyone else for my properties/construction needs as nothing is too small, or too large for these folks.

Would not dream of doing another project with anyone else!

I have done 3 major construction / remodeling projects in my 21 years of business and had less than stellar experiences. My current project with Direct Steel is going so smoothly that I have to pinch myself to remind myself this is real. Direct’s team has been a true advocate for me and my project. They’ve listened and learned what I really need, they have given great advice, brought great partners to the table and executed everything in a timely, cost conscious and professional manner. I highly recommend Direct and would not dream of doing another project with anyone else!

Create your masterpiece with their skill and work intertwined.

While one may not initially think of construction as being a personal heartfelt experience, it is very personal when building a space you have dreamed of for years. To have your own plan become a reality, needs the attentive ear of the company doing the construction to not just build, but to create your masterpiece with their skill and work intertwined. The quality and confidence that working with Direct Steel… offered, is an invaluable resource when embarking on a project where success has such a personal value.

I readily recommend Direct Steel’s services.

Faced with budget and time constraints, Cobblestone sought the services of Direct Steel. With the building design in hand and as an authorized VP distributor, Direct Steel, LLC worked closely with Varco Pruden Buildings to provide structural design, which was quoted, supplied, delivered in only four weeks, and erected in a timely manner. Direct Steel provided professional and knowledgeable service for our Sports City Academy. The staff’s attention to our needs and detail allowed our goals to be accomplished. I readily recommend Direct Steel’s services.
