"In my work as a real estate development consultant and commercial General Contractor in the Denver Metro market for the past 14 years I have had the opportunity to work with some great sub-contractors and some not so great. My experience with Martinez Fire Protection and Colorado Coring has been one of the great experiences. Over the past couple of years I have had the opportunity to work with Martinez Fire Protection for commercial office and retail projects and have found them excellent in working relationships with local municipality fire departments to complete my projects on time and on budget. I have also, during this time, worked with their “sister company”, Colorado Coring, for demolition, concrete saw-cutting, coring and removal and found them to be as professional and responsive as I could hope for. In the business of General Contracting we always hope for sub-contractors who are reliable, communicative, and professional in their work. I have found that the Martinez group to be all of that and more. I would highly recommend both Martinez Fire Protection and Colorado Coring to anyone needing the types of services they offer."

"As a Commercial Superintendent working with a wide range of Subcontractors in Colorado, I would like to express my sincere thanks to Martinez Fire Protection and Colorado Coring for their hard work well done at Emerald Elementary School in Broomfield, CO. Martinez was brought on to the project late as our other Fire Protection contractor fell through. Not only did they get us out of a pinch after being brought on to the project late in the game; they got out ahead of the project with their superior management, installations, and follow through lead by the most professional foreman I have worked to date. It is apparent that they have a strong family culture in their organization. ALL of their team members have exceptionally positive attitudes which directly contributes to the professional installations they leave behind for the building’s long life ahead. If you’re looking for a Fire Protection or Coring Company that will make it happen, Martinez will get you there and then some! Thank you Martinez Fire Protection for making this project and many other Swinerton projects successful. You will certainly be a highly respected project partner for many years to come!"
Tim Lyner, Superintendent, Swinerton Builders
"As a commercial construction superintendent, I work with dozens of sub-contractors annually. The majority adhere to the notion that they are doing general contractors a favor by possibly showing up, possibly performing quality work and definitely submitting change orders on any item they can. Needless to say, your company, Martinez Fire Protection, is quite the opposite. I have never worked with a sub-contractor that has the integrity, work ethic and positive attitude displayed by yourself and each of your employees. For the past six months, during the renovation at DPS Bromwell Elementary School, you met or exceeded every schedule, deadline and inspection. Your hard work and dedication to customer service is a standard all sub-contractors should aspire to. You and your company met every project challenge, including contract costs head-on, without threat of change orders or cost overruns. Martinez Fire's company motto - We Make It Happen - are words Johnny and his crew live by and demonstrate every day they are on your job site. I look forward to working with Johnny and Martinez Fire Protection on future projects!"
Mark Mattivi, Superintendent, Himmelman Construction Inc.
"I just want to express my sincere thanks for all of your hard work and dedication to customer service and quality craftsmanship on my BACB project in Littleton. Your willingness to go the extra mile to see to it that the install was correct and complete, as well as your cooperation with other trades on the project, was indeed a breath of fresh air. Your crews are very professional and a true pleasure to work with. I know I will definitely recommend that Howell Construction uses your services in the future and will spread the word to other superintendents that I know. Your motto “We Make It Happen” truly fits your company!"

"The superintendent and crew at Abe Lincoln High School are some of the best I have seen. They were very efficient and conscious of doing a timely, quality job. Excellent clean-up of work areas and great job of minimal damage both core drilling and piping. The foreman Johnny Martinez did an excellent job of catching problem areas and redesigning to meet code requirements - just wanted to give my thanks and praise to the foreman Johnny Martinez and his crew for their hard work and dedication on the project."

"I am writing this letter to commend the superior job that Martinez Fire Protection Co. has done for us at the Charles Schwab Office campus project. As a Senior Superintendent with Mortenson Construction, I have recently had the pleasure of working with Johnny Martinez, the owner of Martinez Fire Protection. Mr. Martinez and all of his crew were true craftsman who took great pride in their work. They were all very professional, and contributed greatly to the success we had on this project in areas of safety and quality. As I noted above, it was truly a pleasure working with a company that took such pride in their work. The South Metro Fire department was also very impressed. When it was time to pressure up all of our water lines, there was not a single leak, not even a drip. I have total confidence the Martinez Fire Protection Company will perform this well on future projects, and look forward to using them again."
Mike Maguire, Superintendent, Mortenson Construction
"I want to take a moment and talk about the hard work and cooperation that your field crew put into Jefferson High School, first of all I would like to, and have personally, thank Johnny Martinez for his hard work and great leadership on this high paced job. He made promises to Saunders at the beginning of the job and delivered. Johnny works extremely well with other trades and helps out in any way he can. I also admire the fact that he would never propose issues without first having a solution, which to a GC is a dream come true. I think you have a very good asset at your disposal. His crew respects him and shares the same drive and cooperation the he has. I appreciate all their hard work as well as their commitment to the schedule."
