For the past 20 or so years, Arcadia University has depended on Delran Builders to assist with the design, construction and outfitting of not only our most important signature buildings, but many smaller and equally difficult and complex projects on Campus. When one considers the award winning Landman Library, the equally impressive Brubaker / Easton Halls with their award winning water feature, or our most recently constructed University Commons, Delran Builders played a critical and prominent role insuring that our precious University dollars had been wisely, carefully and thoughtfully spent to great effect. High quality craftsmanship, Management and exceptional results are the end product of their many years of labor here at Arcadia.
There is simply no way I can fully describe, in a short amount of space, the many positive contributions Delran and its folks have made to the betterment of this University. They have been more than partners; they have become stakeholders in our success. Many of their personnel have worked on our Campus for many years, so much so that they have become well known, well liked, and respected by the Campus Community. I think that being considered (fondly) a full member of the Arcadia Family says the most about their long lasting legacy at this institution.

Facilities Management and Capital Planning
As you know I have been associated with Delran Builders for the past 8 years in my role as VP of Property Management for Genesis Healthcare. We are a post-acute care provider with centers in numerous states included Delran’s service area of Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
We contract out much of our renovation work to include most of our engineered work and some of our cosmetic work.
We bid every job with no less than 3 contractors and more often than not Delran wins the bid.
We expect any of our contractors to provide detailed timelines of the project, specific scope of work, organized and detailed layouts, great supervision, regular communications, satisfaction of workmanship, skill in maneuvering workers in an occupied area, compassion for the type of people we serve, financial responsibility, trustworthiness, limited change orders and I have to say we receive all of these things and more from Delran employees.
Delran has been by far the best overall contractor we have worked with in my years. I am proud to have an association with Delran Builders and all their great people from Chris Chapman to their site supervisors.
VP Property Management
Genesis Healthcare Central Southeast Division
Delran completed the construction of a new, 17,245sf building to house Surrey’s Center for Healthy Living. The structure was designed to serve as a community gathering place centering on helping older adults create a new world for themselves, to make new friends, enjoy new experiences and to build on a sense of self-worth through involvement in activities and also by helping others. Delran worked hard to make certain that these values were evident in the final product which was delivered to Surrey.
Amenities included in the space are a café, full commercial kitchen, fitness room, activity rooms, classrooms, computer room and administrative offices. Delran worked diligently with the architect and owner to ensure that all interior spaces were designed and constructed to function appropriately for the end use of the space.

Bryn Mawr College
For the past 15 years, Delran Builders has been our “Go To” firm for a wide range of construction projects. While they have successfully completed several large capital projects it is their short-notice response to a myriad of smaller projects that has proven to be invaluable to Bryn Mawr College. Bryn Mawr prides itself on the beauty of its campus and demands the highest quality work in its many historic buildings. Delran has consistently delivered the goods, never failing to satisfy even the most difficult of customers. We have many choices when it comes to picking contractors to work on our campus, so it’s a testament to Delran’s consistently high quality work that we continue to turn to them, time after time, especially on jobs where timeliness, high quality, and good value are essential. A true win-win, long term relationship between owner and contractor is the key to mutual success, and Bryn Mawr College looks forward to continuing that very relationship with Delran Builders for many years to come.”

“Ever since we began working with Delran we have had a tremendous working relationship that ensures us that the projects will be finished on time and on budget, Whether it was the 20,000sf warehouse addition or overseeing the 100,oosf solar installation, we can relax and know that we are in great hands. I am confident that our upcoming projects will have the same consistent attention to detail that we have experienced in the past.”

“It was a pleasure to work with Delran again, and I have nothing but good things to say about working with Scott. He was extremely easy to work with, communicative, detail oriented, and knowledgeable. In all the jobs I’ve completed with Delran over the years, I have to say, you guys have always met schedule, even under tight circumstances, you do a great job, and you have always been extremely equitable and fair to our clients. It was a pleasure, and I look forward to our next project together, and without hesitation, we will definitely keep you in mind for forthcoming projects.”
Keneseth Israel Synagogue
As Executive Director of KI and previously Main Line Reform Temple, I have participated in three major construction/renovation projects. With this prior experience it was unexpected that this project would go so smoothly. I credit Delran with the success of this project due to their attention to detail, their ability to grasp each component of the project and their patience in working with our Building Committee all of which resulted in a smooth process and successful finish. We had a very tight, short timeframe for completion of the project and due to the Delran teams commitment (the Project Manager himself showed up to assist the synagogue with relocation of their furniture in order to ensure a final product) we had a successful completion. Our Building Committee has recommended to the Board of Trustees that we hire Delran Builders for all future projects.”
