Pump House Englargement
Abundant with dangerous wildlife and cold winter temperatures setting in, A-Core of Idaho was contracted by PP&L to enlarge a concrete opening in a pump house on top of the Absarokee Mountain Range. The project required crews from A-Core of Idaho to cut and remove an opening 4 feet thick and approximately 10 feet below grade. The only access to the job site was a 1-hour rail car and tram trip that transported A-Core personnel and equipment up the mountain every day. Another challenge the crew faced was the absence of utilities. This remote location fronted us with a huge task to mobilize our equipment and to cut in strict work areas. A safety conscious team of dedicated employees compromised conventional cutting methods for more innovative techniques to accomplish the impossible. As a result, the project was completed in just 4 days.
Just wanted you to know what a great job Billy and Rex did. They are highly professional and very hard working. Their ability to work with everyone and their attitude when dealing with the owner and Lydig was awesome. I would and will highly recommend them and A-Core to everyone. I hope the rest of my subs are as good as you guys.
A-Core is a professional organization that met all of the challenges during this challenging pipeline project. A-Core comes highly recommended by Barnard Construction.
A-Core deserves a great deal of praise for your technical knowledge and positive attitude in performing this work on the Los Alamos National Laboratory.
We appreciate the exceptional amount of thought and intelligence put into our job at Los Alamos National Laboratories. The job was next to impossible, and without dedicated employees such as yourselves the job could not have been done. Your advice and help was very much appreciated. The next to impossible job has been completed thanks to A-Core's A-team.
I just took the best phone call I’ve EVER taken at CPC. The guy said, “My name is Tim and I just got back from Afghanistan . I just passed one of your jobs here on I84, and one of your pieces of equipment had an American Flag on it and I just wanted to say, Thank you”. I told Tim, Thank you for what he has done for our country. I’ve taken many interesting phone calls over the years, but none have made me feel better than that one. So, thanks for taking the time and effort to display the American flag [on your equipment]. That was awesome!
On behalf of Jacobsen Construction along with the other project management firms of Big-D Construction and Layton Construction that were involved in the overall design and construction experience, we are appreciative of your support to assist in the constructing of this facility. It was especially gratifying to see the members of this organization come together, especially in this time of economic downturn, and work together to build this new facility. We are grateful to be associated with so many wonderful construction related firms such as yours.
I thank you and your employees for the work done on the sealing of teh turbine pit walls on the Ashton Hydro Project. You and your employees worked under some very adverse conditions with a new product. You all put forth a great effort and overcame the obstacles. You can be proud of the great employees you have. They gave their all to bring the job to a successful completion with excellent workmanship.
This letter is to inform you of the VERY professional attitude exhibited by the A-Core personnel that performed the coring service for our project at Luke AFB. The professionalism was not only in the gentlemen's greeting but also in the work that he performed. This person took the time to protect the building with plastic to keep the residue from the coring off of the building exterior and even washed down the wall to remove what residue the plastic sheathing did not catch. This is not a common occurrence from cutting companies and A-Core will receive my highest rating.
