What Our Clients Are Saying

"Of all the construction groups we have worked with through the years, we have found Intrepid Build to be the most competent and capable in RTP. What sets them apart from all others is their proactive transparency upwards to the client and downwards to their employees and sub-contractors. Over multiple projects their teams have consistently delivered within 10% of their forecasted timelines and 5% of their forecasted cost. Those results were favorable coming in under budget and early. We strongly recommend Intrepid as a leading construction firm in the RTP area."

– William Newcomb, Longfellow Real Estate Partners

First, I would like to say thank you. The level of progress, professionalism, adaptability, and ability to overcome adversity that your team has shown in the last 4 weeks has our team on its toes. My team and I walked the painting subcontractor to perform an inspection and were blown away by your hanging and finishing. Samet and Intrepid, Identified the problem, confirmed a plan of action, and executed that plan to perfection.

Second, housekeeping is second to none! A team member has never had to ask more than once to have an entire floor cleaned. Your team might know, but for the sake of it, this is refreshing to see especially in multifamily.  I would like to give a huge shout out to your team. Thank you for your daily attention to detail, your professionalism, and your tact.

- Cody Hinkle, Superintendent II, Samet Corporation
