"Pete Haug is the most diligent project manager I have had a chance to work with. ... When we had construction issues, Pete defended the County and protected the County as a good consultant should. ... There were times we needed quick decisions, and Pete was able to deliver those decisions where other consultants would waffle and tend to not provide a clear answer or result due to fear of being incorrect or 'judged.' "
