"Since our first Kona project in the ‘80’s, we have found E.M. Rivera & Sons to be highly knowledgeable and professional. We have used their services many times over the decades since, on large and small projects, and have referred them to others without complaints.  Their local knowledge and insights have proven extremely valuable in saving both costs and time, which is often a critical element in any project. And their understanding of the ways to get things done at the local level have helped projects avoid unnecessary “bumps” in the road. Great management; great staff; great results!!"

"I have had the pleasure of working with Hiram Rivera and his staff for over 17 years both on my individual lot development projects and as manager of 327 Kona, LLC. Hiram and his staff are always responsive. He works with us and our engineers to design the most practical and economical solutions for laying out our developments. His bulldozer operators are the best we have worked with in cutting pad sites for our residential lots.  Thanks for these many years of helping us deliver lots to the Kona community."

"Water Resources International, Inc. (WRI) has utilized E.M. Rivera & Sons (EMR) to construct numerous sites for our well drilling operations. Having been in business for many years, EMR’s team is very knowledgeable and experienced in construction regulations, permitting, and environmental Best Management Plans.  They have a great design team, state of the art equipment, and experienced equipment operators who understand “hard rock” excavation. Currently, EMR is an important team member for a design-build exploratory well drilling project on the Big Island requiring mass excavation to construct a well drilling site and access roads. WRI looks forward to working with the EMR team on current and future projects."

"Kailua Realty has developed eight successful sub-divisions in Kona since 1986. E.M Rivera and Sons did the site work on all of our developments representing nearly $5,000,000.00. In the beginning we put our jobs out to bid; however, E.M Rivera and Sons proved to be so skilled in value engineering, we now negotiate solely with them, which saves us substantial sums on our developments."

     William G. Boyle, President - Kailua Realty, Ltd.

 

"E.M. Rivera & Sons did an $8.5 million site improvement contract for our 98 single-family home development on 109 acres. The scope of work included on site mass excavation, crushing, grading, water, sewer, drainage systems, underground utilities including electrical, telephone and cable and an off site sewer line and channelized intersection." "In my experience, which includes the completion of over 2,000 residential units over the last ten years and over 1,000 units currently under construction, E. M. Rivera & Sons performance and team effort has been exemplary. Their local knowledge and experience has been a contributing factor in our ability to achieve our milestone on time and under budget. Their employees are a reflection of management in their consistent conscientious 'can do' attitude."
