Tarraf Construction was awarded the contract for a first of its kind project - the U of M Health Nurse Practitioners Clinic.  This is the U's first nurse-led clinic all thanks to a law that passed last year which allows nurse practitioners to practice independently of physicians.  Click the below picture to learn more! Letter of Recommendation from owner below.

Tarraf Construction knows that every project and every relationship has value for our company’s future success.  It is why we work tirelessly to make sure everyone on every project is completely satisfied to the best of our abilities.

Below are testimonies from a few of our satisfied customers.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Salah Tarraf is so good at relationships, and he recognizes that he doesn't know everything, so he learns from his customers and                                      is always improving.   He brings in good people who do the work really well and he makes sure that his customers are                                                                          happy and his employees are performing.  We are very pleased with the partnership”

“Tarraf Construction was instrumental in administering the contract from pre-award to post-award, from the design submittal approval process, and then the construction itself, using both their in-house workforce and a number of local subcontractors.  Tarraf's leadership was instrumental in holding all levels of the contract together through the provision of providing excellent management skills and problem solving techniques.  The entire project was a success and will provide our Minnesota sailors with a new expanded training center to help in their mission.  I would highly recommend Tarraf Construction and look forward to hopefully working with this professional team once again down the road.  Job Well Done!”

"RS Eden recently had the privilege to work cooperatively with Tarraf Construction on an interior construction project in Minneapolis.  Tarraf Construction worked cooperatively with the team and suggested improvements or changes that positively affected the outcome.  I would recommend Tarraf Construction to any developer looking to complete a small to medium sized project"
