“I would like to thank Denark Construction for its project management of the new Tennessee College of Applied Technology and the Nissan Training Center in Smyrna.  The building is a model of excellence for advanced manufacturing. Denark provided relevant and timely updates on construction status, including several recommendations that improved the functionality of the facility. Their professionalism and personal commitment to the project made it easier for me to manage Nissan’s portion of the building construction.”
