Larry was extremely helpful in discussing the ideas and giving us cost estimates of each individual aspect of the project. He began and ended this project in a very timely fashion and had our home cleaned by the time we relocated. His subcontractors were very capable; timely...all of the work performed was of the highest quality.                    Rick C., Homeowner

Larry Bessette, general contractor

ICI was able to take our ideas, accommodate our needs and lifestyle, and design a superb product. We felt so comfort-able with him that he had full access to our (vacation) home while we reside out of state. He did an exemplary job at keeping us updated on the progress of our project...recommend without reservation.                  Gerry E., Homeowner
He always produces construction true to my design intent... easy to work with in a collaborative fashion. Innovative in his approach, conversant with the language and theories of construction engineering... highly recommend Larry for any construction project.                                                                                                           Charles G., Professional Engineer

Larry is a builder with long experience, professional competence and personal integrity, ...continuously and successfully improved his professional skills and personal development...quality oriented builder. Larry worked on the total renovation and remodeling of our historical home in downtown Brevard...most challenging as it entailed the integration of a highly detailed historical structure with new contemporary design of the infrastructure. Larry had a high degree of problem awareness, enthusiasm and great professional skill. A valuable asset to have Larry as a builder on one's project team.                                                                                                                 Werner H., Architect and Homeowner
... as an absentee homeowner...he kept us well informed during the entire process. Additionally...vast experience... attentive...sensitive to the original house design, yet applied current technology to solve many problems in a very practical, cost-effective manner. We found his cost proposals to be very accurate. ICI completed all of the work within the designated time schedule and the over all project was within our agreed upon budget. We would not hesitate to work with Larry again.                                                                                           Lou G., Architect and Homeowner
Larry's reputation in Brevard is top-notch....flexible, understands quality workmanship, is a perfectionist, artistic and innovative, is able to think creatively when needed. The job is done correctly and stands the test of time.                                                                Lisa A., Realtor and Homeowner
As architects, we especially appreciate the depth of Larry's knowledge of building systems and the means and methods necessary to move a project from paper to a built reality. The spirit of team work, cooperation, and problem solving he has brought to these projects, especially where unknown conditions present ongoing challenges, have been sincerely appreciated.                                                                                                                                     Ellen H. and Douglas H., Architects
