“Seth was incredibly responsive and personally involved from quote all the way through certification sign off. It was refreshing to deal with a company where the principle is involved from day one through the completion of the project. From the bid perspective, Modulus did the best job to utilize the limited space that we had to worth with. Modulus had to coordinate their work with the other remodel activities including ethernet cabling, HVAC, electrical, etc., and did so seamlessly without incident. The overall quality of their work was excellent and they clearly put the customer first."

Martin Goldberg, PhD - Sr. VP R&D SlipChip Corporation, CA

"I have worked with Seth and his team on several projects and they have exceeded my expectations on every level. From the first visit, where Seth uses his experience and wealth of knowledge to improve the project with suggested design changes, to the finishing details, the projects have always gone smoothly and remained on schedule and on budget.”
