I want to offer my personal Congratulations to you and your Team on being selected for the Harrah’s Laughlin Project.

All your team did an excellent job from bidding thru presentation, it was a unanimous decision by all five (5) of us on the selection, you set the standard as the first contractor interviewed and it was difficult for your competitors to beat, especially as there was only several thousand dollars separating the selected three (3)

It was a pleasure working with you guys and I look forward to working with your team again on other projects.

In reference to the 126’ x 30’ steel shade structure, we at RSP would like to thank you and your team for a successful project. Your help in the plan submittal and permit process, as well as the way the project was managed once started showed that you take pride in your projects and want to make sure they are completed both on time and correctly.

Shawn provided excellent communication as the project was under construction on what was happening next, and the dates of when each task would be completed. Shawn was also instrumental in communicating with subcontractors when there were questions or concerns. He set the meetings, attended the on-site meetings, as well as followed up to make sure each item was addressed.

In short, Trident construction provided a complete package that we wanted when it came to this project, which did present its share of challenges in the beginning to the end of the project. We would gladly use Trident again on a future project, as well as refer them to others that are looking for a great construction team.

I have known the Donofrio’s and Trident Construction for almost 23 years. We have had a business relationship almost as long. I have nothing but respect for these people and their firm. I consider Trident Construction one of the premier builders and developers in Southern Nevada. They have exhibited talent, competency expected in high end construction, and adherence to good business ethics.

We have worked very closely with Jim Donofrio, Jr. on a number of large, complex construction projects ie; Fashion Show Mall, World Market Center, Panorama Towers, etc., Jim is fanatical about the details and knows every aspect of the projects he manages. Jim’s dynamic “get it done” style has always helped us get in and out of his projects in a timely, coordinated manner, resulting in a successful job for everyone involved.

I worked with Jim Jr. on several large projects such as World Market Center and Panorama Towers. No matter what position he was in at each time, be it the owners representative, construction manager, or contractor, Jim’s broad knowledge of development, management, and construction and his attention to detail are impressive. I am looking forward to working with Trident Construction and the Donofrios for many more years to come in the next phase of Nevada’s growth or through our East Coast Offices in the New York area.

I have known Jim Donofrio (Jr.) for over ten years — first when he was Project Manager at Whiting-Turner and  at Related  where we worked together on the World Market Center Buildings A-D — and more recently at Trident Construction Corporation. I was always impressed with Jim’s extensive knowledge and understanding of mechanical systems and contracting. Jim is one of the most respected individuals in the Las Vegas community. I welcome the opportunity to work together with Jim and Trident Construction Corporation on future projects.

Doug Lea, President, Quality Mechanical


We have been working with Jim Donofrio Jr. for several years now and Jim always explores for the right possibilities to reduce cost without compromising quality for all installed mechanical systems. He diligently works with his subcontractors to provide a coordinated project both during the design/preconstruction and construction phases. His passion for the construction industry is highly admired and his knowledge of the business is unparalleled.

Amidst all of the frustration, I want you to know that your team kicked butt and were great to work with. Anthony and Justin were total pros and made the best out of a complicated situation. Thanks to them and you.
