“In the summer of 2010, Doylestown Presbyterian Church embarked on an ambitious Renovation and Construction project that would take sixteen months to complete. The constricted physical space and everyday schedules of an active church and an onsite nursery school provided daily challenges to the demolition and construction timeline.
Both projects were assigned to Josh (Heisey) and he managed them to completion not only on time but to our complete satisfaction. He exhibited grace under pressure, with an ability to keep perspective of the entire picture while attentive to every detail along the way. He was preemptive with scheduling, ordering supplies and materials and assigning appropriate workers to the various tasks required. When unexpected delays occurred, which were inevitable given the ages of the buildings, especially the 1871 church, Josh was able to minimize the impact and to recoup the time lost through effective management of his personnel.
These are simply highlights of the experience we at Doylestown Presbyterian Church had with Josh during our renovation and construction project”
