I wanted to take the time and send you a note thanking you for the scheduling expertise you provided on the Lincoln Square Expansion Project.
This 600 plus million dollar project consists of 6 levels of below grade parking, a 4 level podium retail area, a 31 story office tower, and a 42 level hotel and luxury apartment building. The duration of the project was three years.
The project was initially built in MS Project with over 12,000 activities, and with 7 linked projects. It was about to crash under its own weight. The first task you undertook was to convert the MS Project schedule into Primavera P-6. This provided the project with a stable and streamlined schedule thanks to your efforts.
Additionally, you worked with the project team and provided us with weekly status updates, along with monthly full schedule updates. This was no easy task on this project as we moved forward with construction as the design was being completed.
Because of the fluid state of the design and permits we were constantly revising our work plan in the schedule. We would not have been able to accomplish this massive undertaking without your knowledge and expertise.
Because of your efforts, and introducing Primavera P6 through several training sessions we were able to complete this major project on time and with no claims.
We look forward to working with you in the future.
To Whom It May Concern:
I am writing this letter to express my, and my law firm’s, appreciation for the hard work and invaluable service we have received from Raquel Shohet and her team at ROCK SOLID PROJECT SOLUTIONS. My practice deals primarily with construction litigation and disputes, and Raquel and her team have routinely been able to assist my clients in handling particularly difficult disputes and obtaining extremely favorable resolutions. Raquel and her team have also assisted many of my clients in handling issues before they actually became claims, working with these clients on a daily and weekly basis to solve problems before they ever really become problems. Whether as a consultant, expert witness, or just a sounding board, Raquel has always been a tremendous asset to my practice and an invaluable resource to my clients.
In addition to her work in assisting me and my clients with claims, Raquel also works with me to create new leads and make new contacts for potential clients. Through working with Raquel, I have had the pleasure to meet many new clients and business contacts, and her assistance has led to a sizable expansion of my litigation practice. Raquel’s reputation in the community is beyond comparison, and I know that when I’m meeting with someone that Raquel knows and recommends, that person is going to be someone that I want to know.
Aside from the obvious business benefits I have enjoyed as a result of working with Raquel and her team, I would be remiss to not emphasize that Raquel is first and foremost an incredible person, always willing to put her personal needs aside to assist me and my clients at a moment’s notice. She handles every matter that I work with her on with the utmost care, and I never have to worry about Raquel being unavailable or unable to help. She treats my clients as if they were her own clients, and none of my clients, or my colleagues, has ever had a bad word to say about her.
I am happy to call Raquel a friend and colleague, and I look forward to working with her for many more years on many more matters.
Very truly yours,

Project: Clark County Detention Center
Re: ROCK SOLID PROJECT SOLUTIONS’s Scheduling Services
ROCK SOLID PROJECT SOLUTIONS has been providing scheduling consulting services for the Clark County Detention Center Renovation project for a little over four years and has been a contributing factor to the projects past and continuing success. ROCK SOLID PROJECT SOLUTIONS has been a part of the Sletten design build team since before Phase I of the project and continues through Phase 11.
The project is a multi-phased renovation of an occupied facility in downtown Las Vegas with many unique challenges. The professional scheduling services provided by the team at ROCK SOLID PROJECT SOLUTIONS have allowed us to keep the project on schedule and adjust to the challenges that develop every day. When necessary, we have been able to modify our approach and schedule to mitigate delays encountered in an active detention center. Without ROCK SOLID PROJECT SOLUTIONS assisting the team and reflecting the challenges in our schedule we would be at a disadvantage.
I could not be happier with the service and the value added to my project provided by the team at ROCK SOLID PROJECT SOLUTIONS. I know that I will have a clear picture of the final two years of the project while I work with ROCK SOLID PROJECT SOLUTIONS.
I wanted to drop a note to say Thanks to you and your group at ROCK SOLID PROJECT SOLUTIONS. I have been working with you for about 10 years now on multiple different projects across the country ranging from Industrial to Retail to Commercial and High Rises. You and your staff has always been accommodating of our needs whether it was full CPM Schedule Management, Third Party Review, Bid Schedules, Training or just a quick phone call for P6 help. Every time your services were needed, you and your staff were extremely professional and knowledgeable which has grown into a healthy relationship and friendship. That long standing relationship and service has led to efficient service as you understand our needs and how we prefer to develop and manage schedules on our projects. I look forward to continuing to utilize your services for the next 10 years and beyond.

To Whom it may concern:
I have been in the development business for over thirty-five years and during that time, I have been involved with many companies that have provided project management services, scheduling services, and project analysis services. Rock Solid Solutions provides all these services in one company.
My first experience with Rock-Solid Solutions was in 2013. The lender requested that a separate scheduling firm be used to develop a schedule for a 210-apartment unit project in Las Vegas. That project, like five others since that time, have been scheduled successfully by Rock Solid Solutions.
Recently, I requested additional services from Rock Solid Solutions (meeting schedules, minutes, and budget analysis) and they have provided those with the same professional efficiency that has always been their trademark in scheduling.
Everyone wants to make their project successful. Rock-Solid Solutions makes that happen. They are detailed oriented, see the big picture and share your plan to achieve your goal of a successful project.
