“It was a pleasure collaborating with Millie and Severson on both the Yeshiva Ohr Eliyahu and Young Israel of North Beverly Hills projects. Their unwavering commitment to both project’s success was evident from the first day. Their thorough preconstruction approach served well in identifying and resolving early on many of the key issues related to the project cost and construction schedule. Both projects had complex issues which required a thorough and thoughtful approach. Being a great team player, they helped maintain the project’s design integrity throughout the various value engineering exercises. Their attention to detail in both preconstruction and construction was evident throughout. They are extremely professional and continuously display integrity and honesty in every phase of the project.”

"Jon Severson, and his firm, Millie and Severson, are all about integrity. Our multi-year project, building a beautiful 80,110 square foot primary school, was a stunning success, not just because of the quality workmanship and attention to detail, but largely because Jon and his firm took personal responsibility and invested themselves in the project as if it had been their own school and their own community. We are, and will be, forever indebted to them."

Seth Berkowitz

Rabbi Yossi Gross
Director of Yeshiva Gedolah

Young Israel of North Beverly Hills

“Our project was a very complex one and fraught with numerous obstacles and pitfalls. Our team had inherited an aging and rusted hulk with no usable plans and expired permits. Had we not made the decision to hire Millie and Severson to perform pre-construction and the actual construction, I am certain that the project would never have come to fruition. Millie and Severson’s herculean efforts were instrumental in salvaging what was considered a hopeless mess.”
