Testimonials From Our Partners

Banner Health

I want to thank you for another successful project at Casa Grande. Between the Café and Suite 108, Emerald Inc. has had my back and been quick to respond to all surprises.

Ron has built a tremendous amount of trust and respect with me over the past few months. In addition to his reliability and follow through, he is honest, collaborative and great with our users. Regardless of the contractor, the success of a project typically comes down to the Superintendent and PM, and these projects were no different.

In addition, I am thankful for Vance and the entire team who have supported us.

It has been another great year working with Emerald Inc. I appreciate that this team not only has the technical skills but also has the personal skills that are required to work in an occupied hospital. From bid through closeout, your team is always timely and responsive. I look forward to our next project together.”

Shoreline Financial Services of Arizona

“Emerald Inc. was a real treat to work with. I’ve never had to hire a contractor before and usually you hear horror stories and bad experiences. I will tell you, Quinten and his team were top-notch. From communication to changes we needed, it was a great, smooth process. In fact, Emerald covered some costs that weren’t their fault. Thank you Emerald, you are a real gem in the industry. “

“Job well done. It was a pleasure working with Quinten. Would recommend Emerald Inc., they are on the top of our list of contractors to call, if and when we need a contractor.”

Emerald Inc. is exceptional in every way.

Even through the madness of skilled labor shortages, inflated material costs, and Covid, they never raised their price or took longer than quoted. Emerald completely renovated a vacant Walmart Marketside building to fit our needs and the process was stress-free.

The quality and professionalism of Emerald’s workers and subcontractors was top-notch. Somehow Emerald has this magic list of subcontractors that do outstanding work at the absolute best price.

Being a medium-sized business who just went all in buying this building, we had a lot riding on this construction project. The best advice I can give anyone is to hire Emerald. Our future looks bright thanks to Emerald’s team. Thank you so much!”

City 2 Shore Real Estate

Emerald Inc. was recommended to us to build out our real estate office and executive suites in Gilbert.  When we contacted Emerald, we spoke with Quinten who was knowledgeable and giving of his time to meet with us.  The bid process was quick and efficient and they even helped us mitigate our costs while achieving the same look!

The follow-up by Vance prior to starting construction was phenomenal and the communication during construction was great.  There were a couple of missed details, to be expected with all the moving parts, but they were handled to satisfaction immediately.  One thing that really stood out to me is that each of the trades that completed work in our space were friendly and accommodating.  The trades respected Emerald and appeared to be happy working for them, which showed in their craftsmanship.

We are so happy with the outcome and know that we’ll have a quality office space for years to come.  The referral was spot on and we’ll gladly refer them to anyone looking for an office buildout!

Modern Chiropractic Company

Emerald Inc. did a fantastic job with our build-out. They finished a month ahead of schedule at a time when a lot of contractors were booked up. They worked with our budget and they stick to the budget. I wouldn’t hesitate to use them for our next project.

Emerald was great to work with.  We got several bids and they were not only the most affordable, but they beat everyone by a long shot.  Their communication was good throughout the process and the work was great.  We are happy with our new office buildout.

EMC Insurance Companies

We selected Emerald Inc. to remodel 20,000 square feet of our office space in Peoria, AZ.  Not only were we happy with the final result, we were extremely satisfied with the process.  They did an excellent job of coordinating with our furniture vendor and ensured that each phase of the project was delivered on time.  Quinten Merrill, in particular, kept everyone coordinated and communicated well with us.  He also worked to make sure that any issues that arose were resolved to our satisfaction.  I would certainly use this company on a future project.

Emerald Inc. just completed the full transformation of our warehouse & office space. They were great to work with from the initial meeting to picking everything out and then the execution of the entire project.
Everyone we worked with throughout the time was professional & helpful. Any time we had a question, Emerald Inc made sure to give us an answer in a timely manner and in a way that we understood.
We would highly recommend Emerald Inc to anyone looking for a renovation or new build out!
Ruby Bloom


We used Emerald for our complete build out. They were fantastic to work with and professional in every aspect of the job. The whole team was very honest and we had great communication throughout the entire project.

Quinten and Vance kept us on budget and on schedule (and did an amazing job especially considering COVID-19 hit right as we started construction)! We had a lot of unconventional requests and custom pieces that the Emerald team researched and made happen! Ron and Eli were wonderful and we will always be grateful for the hours they spent hand painting every nook of that breeze block wall!

We had a phenomenal experience with Emerald, they went above and beyond to make our dream a reality! We would recommend them to anyone and we wouldn’t hesitate to use them again!

Emerald Inc. recently did the tenant improvements for our 4500 square foot restaurant.  They were excellent with staying on schedule, being professional, and literally managed the entire project from start to finish.  They were amazing to work with and the restaurant came out looking beautiful.  I highly recommend Emerald for all your building needs.  Thank you Emerald!

Arizona Commercial Management

My experience with Emerald has been nothing but positive! 

Vance has been so kind and patient.  He takes the time to explain something I may not understand right away, as I’m not a very construction savvy.  I feel comfortable knowing he’s on my projects and that the work will get completed in a timely and professional manner.

I have no complaints and look forward to working with Emerald in the future.

Rockwell Ice Cream Arizona

We had a great experience, overall, with Emerald.  Yes, there were a number of hiccups, which happens in every business.  However, Quinten was great about looking for solutions and accepting accountability, even when problems weren’t directly his fault.  Quinten was always great about answering his phone and being responsive. 

Max and Ron were amazing and extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and handy.  Vance is very approachable and easy to work with, and helps bring levity to the team, which helps counterbalance Quinten’s serious demeanor. 🙂

Quinten has created a great team that we enjoyed working with.

It was a very big deal for me to pull the trigger on a dream project for our company. I needed to have confidence that the team we used would be able to execute our vison. That is why Emerald Inc. won our bid! Through the whole process, from early planning to the final finishing touches, they were on top of our needs. I was overly impressed with the attention to detail in each stage of our dream build. It was also refreshing to hear all the out of the box ideas and suggestions they had for our individual project. I’d use them again in a heart beat for any future contracting work. Thanks again for everything!

Dr. Brad Williamson

I had the pleasure of working with Emerald Inc for my first building this year and I have to say it was such an amazing and easy experience that if we expand I will have no hesitation to use Quinten Merrill and the staff of Emerald Inc. for any of my future builds.

From start to finish there was constant communication and I never had to wait to hear back from Quinten or Blair if I had any questions regarding how everything was going with my build out. They were on time, on budget and the build out far exceeded how I thought things were going to look at the conceptual stages.

My patients have complimented me on a daily basis on how nice the building looks so I think that speaks volumes to the quality of their work, thanks again for everything.

We received our permit last week and cannot thank you enough for shepherding our permit through the Phoenix Building Department.

We had a very unique project involving foundations, structural engineers, outside inspections, etc. You had to attend many, many inspections with the City and had to organize many different trades and professionals.

You made the whole process look easy. We could have never gotten it done in such a timely manner if it wasn’t for all of your help and expertise. Please feel free to use me as a reference anytime. You are welcome to give out my cell number if any customer ever wants to talk to me.

Teddy Graves

SA Recycling hired Emerald Inc. as a General Contractor for our project. What we received in return was more than we expected. Emerald Inc. was more of a project partner than a contractor for us. It should go without saying that the work provided to us was excellent quality and professionally executed.

One of the things that impressed us with Emerald Inc. was their shared ownership in our project. Each conversation with Quinten always included him asking “What Can I Do to Help?”.

We found Quinten and his staff to be accessible. They were active in project discussions, proposing options, provided professional sub-contractors and the flexibility needed to meet our extremely tight deadlines. Having Quinten Merrill on speed dial was a huge part of our success with this project.

We would like to take this opportunity to recommend Emerald Inc. to others for their project needs.

Best Regards,

Teddy Graves

Project Manager, SA Recycling

Ryan Thompson

I would absolutely recommend using Emerald Inc for your new construction or remodel needs.

The willingness of Quinten and the team to work with me to make on the fly changes. They were very budget conscious, they kept me very informed along the way as to where we were at as for budget pluses and minuses and just kept me really informed on the progress.

I think all of the sub-contractors that they used were very timely and helpful and did really quality work.

Emerald provided the total solution. Emerald took our ideas and brought them to life. They were willing work with us on changes and we ended up with a much better product than what was originally put on paper.

Thank you!

Quinten, Blair, and Rick,

Tomorrow is my first day seeing patients in my new space. After my sister got done decorating it, I can honestly say that it is the best looking clinic I will work in, and the best part is that I own it and found a great company to do the build out!

I can’t thank each of you enough for your extreme patience and diligence in completing my project.

Blair and Rick in particular went the extra mile to ensure that all aspects of the job were taken care of, and were always available to answer my questions!

I hope you have a good end to your week and year. Please don’t hesitate to come and see me for any of your hearing needs!!

All the best!!!

Great work by Emerald Inc.


I wanted to write you an e-mail and thank you for referring me to Emerald Inc. I wanted to let you know that they did a great job on my project out at Pinal Professional Village. I hope you’ll continue to send clients their way.

From day one, Quinten was super helpful and thorough. If he can do good work and care the way he did about a project as small as mine, you shouldn’t hesitate to send him any size project.

Thanks again!!

Emerald Inc. has been a pivotal component to my companies success. They do their job the right way the first time and take pride & responsibility for their work. They are diligent in their work and never have to reminded to follow up on something they said they would do. Call Quinten and you will never have to worry about your GC again.

My first experience with Emerald convinced me I had found my construction partner. I have now built multiple projects with Emerald and have been delighted with all of them. One of my projects involved both class A office and warehouse space. We were able to work together to increase the size of our warehouse space by creating a mezzanine for storage on a second level. Their understanding of the cost and innovative ideas on how to achieve what we want and keep it in the price we want was very helpful. My advice to anyone wanting to build is to get Emerald involved early in the process, you will get more for your money, and will end up with a building partner you can trust.

I was very pleased with the service that Quinten Merrill and Emerald Inc provided me when they built out my office suite. I chose them for their flexibility and price, and appreciated their suggestions on how I could achieve the budget I had set. With each phase of construction, Quinten would let me know the cost and give me alternatives, so that I could make the best decision for my office. I feel I was able to get the quality I desired and am happy that I partnered with Emerald Inc for the build out of my office.

Maren Tobler Hanson

I enthusiastically recommend Emerald Inc.!  Working with Emerald to build our law office was a really fabulous experience.  Emerald went above and beyond, meeting with us several times before the actual building began to fine tune every detail.  Emerald made sure we got exactly what we wanted and that we got it within our budget.

The Emerald workers who were on site every day of the build were friendly and professional, and I always knew that they were paying attention to quality.  When something wasn’t done to their high expectations, they stopped and fixed it right away.

I was also impressed with all the sub-contractors that Emerald used during the build.  The sub-contractors reflected the same friendliness and professionalism of Emerald.

I loved how our office turned out!  Every day I come to work and am happy to be in this beautiful space that Emerald built.

I would highly recommend Emerald Inc for any build out, TI, or ground up building needs. Emerald was more like a partner than a contractor, and we felt extremely confident working with them from design to completion. We are extremely happy with the final product and would not hesitate to use Emerald again.

Doug Hobbs

I have loved working with Quinten Merrill, and Emerald Construction. During the past 14 years he has built out over 30 offices for our company, Urgent Care Extra. We are very demanding. Often we have tight timelines, and equally tight budgets. Timing the opening of our offices is critical to their success. He has worked with the various local governments to get us the needed permits in Gilbert, Mesa, Chandler, Scottsdale, San Tan, Tucson, Phoenix, and Tempe. He has turned both vanilla, and grey shells into efficient and beautiful offices. I love working with Quinten and his strong team. He is honest, effective, hard working, and talented. His ideas and creativity have saved me money and time. Having a building completed ahead of schedule and under budget is as rare as a unicorn, but he has done it for us multiple times. He listens to our priorities and makes things happen. When I am looking at a new building he is the first person I call. I would not recommend anybody else.

Personal recommendations are always easy to give when dealing with real professionals. As a developer/broker of the Pierpont Commerce Centers I had the opportunity to create over 340,000 sq. ft. of office condo shells in Southeast Valley. With a shell purchase it is especially important to continue guiding the buyers through the remaining internal build out journey.

A simple introduction to Quinten Merrill and his Emerald Design/Build Team gave me the peace of mind that the buyer would be taken care of to final occupancy. He was fully educated to the specific details of our building. With that knowledge he would complement my marketing story and bring together the final dream of each business owner. The contractor has to deal with the tiny details and difficult client expectations. I have never received a negative comment from my buyers and MORE IMPORTANTLY I HAVE ALWAYS RECIEVED POSITIVE FEEDBACK from those choosing him as their contractor.

His follow through is unmatched!
