ICON Builders’ attention to detail at Victory Place III produced 75 new homes for homeless veterans that would stack up to any market rate new housing in Phoenix. As a tax credit investor, we appreciate their expertise in affordable housing programs and understanding of our sensitivity to delivering projects on-time to meet tax credit delivery projections. During the construction, a large window supplier had gone bankrupt, but ICON Builders’ proactive approach resulted in no time delays due to the supplier failure. ICON Builders’ problem solving while on the job helped ensure our veterans project was delivered on-time and within budget. Furthermore, they did an exemplary job of hiring local Veterans to be utilized in the construction of Victory Place III.
