Our firm worked with Taylor International on a project at Showcase Mall for Ross Dress for Less. Taylor was the contractor on the project. The project had some challenges, but Taylor project managers and superintendents were extremely capable and helped us overcome them with the proactive way they do construction. They make it clear they want to work with you for a successful outcome. It was not just the people we worked with but also everyone in the office – from the office staff to senior executives – who were behind the project.

I had the great pleasure and honor to work with Taylor International on the Palazzo. We completed the framing, drywall, insulation, painting and fireproofing for the project. This was a massive undertaking, but with the expertise of the Taylor team – Jim Mason, Jim Rogers, Charley Duggan, Barbara Barto and many, many others – the work was successfully completed on schedule. The Palazzo is truly one of the most beautiful towers in Las Vegas. Aderholt Specialty Company would like to say “thank you” to Taylor International for all of their support and expertise in making the Palazzo one of the most successful projects in our 50+ year history. We could not have done it without you!

Working with Taylor International on the Palazzo in Las Vegas has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my 34-year career. The Mason family embraces construction delivery with mutual respect for the owner, consultant and contractor. The results are projects that are within the owner’s budget and schedule, but also an experience that ends in lasting friendships within the team.
As Executive Director Design for the Venetian, I had the privilege of working closely with Taylor International on numerous projects ranging from small single office remodels to seven million square foot integrated resorts over an eight-year period. Taylor provided construction management services for the Venetian and I represented the owners’ design staff on these projects. Taylor International provided exceptional personal service to the Venetian and worked closely with the design team to propose, evaluate and select alternate design elements that would meet or exceed the design intent and provide best value for the project. Construction management at Taylor clearly means to provide service to the owner, and build projects like you own them.

We worked with Taylor on construction of the Palazzo project, serving as project structural engineers. As co-owners, Jim and Bill Mason were very hands-on, maintaining a good grasp of project specifics, and in general, assuming key leadership roles. Their direct involvement definitely enhanced project outcomes at key milestones from start to finish.
The Taylor superintendents were practical-minded, maintaining a good and logical balance between ease of construction and satisfying design intent under conditions of potential conflict. The mindset was one of acknowledging that both construction issues and design issues arise, and that collaboration and teamwork between contractor and engineer is required to resolve both. As an engineering firm, we were comfortable in knowing that the help we offered to resolve construction issues in the field would be returned to us by Taylor to help solve design issues discovered in the field.
