“CD Hall Construction performed an incredibly time-sensitive, complex demolition for us.  They embraced a difficult assignment and the schedule they were given seemed impractical, especially being the last two weeks of the year over the Christmas holiday.  In spite of the obstacles, CD Hall delivered, always providing a very safe and orderly site.  Our experience with CD Hall set them apart as a highly professional, first-class operation.”  – CSX Railroad General Contractor
