“Mrs. Coffee took a genuine interest in our school and represented the school extremely well. There were numerous times the construction company was prepared to take short-cuts to complete the project, but she was very serious about the fact this project would be completed in time, on budget, and that it would interfere with classes only minimally. She certainly did serve Stand Watie well and we are extremely proud of our building!”
“Julie Coffee successfully led her staff as they hosted the first Canstruction OKC competition in the fall of 2013.

It was a profound experience that allowed my co-workers and myself to not only have a little fun doing what we love but doing it for a special organization. All of this could not have been possible without the excellent organization of Mrs. Julie Coffee and her team at High Impact Management Group. It is through their careful planning and guidance that allowed our teams a swift engagement in participation.

“Julie Coffee with High Impact Management understands today’s construction industry, but that’s not what makes her stand out against the competition. Julie brings invaluable knowledge, experience, and a sense of pride and ownership to every project she undertakes. I had the pleasure of working alongside Julie on the Chevy Bricktown Events Center in downtown Oklahoma City. Under the most difficult and sometimes impossible circumstances, Julie ensured the project remained on schedule, and within the budget every step of the way while maintaining constant client/owner satisfaction, resulting in a fantastic project and revitalized addition to downtown OKC.”
