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.
On behalf of The Lowell construction project in Park City, Utah, I want to thank you for responding to our needs so quickly and professionally. Your employees are well qualified. Ray Fonseca is one of them. He has consistently been the best core driller that has worked on this project. He has great abilities and instincts, always mindful of safety and eager to get the job done in a timely fashion, as well as respectful of everyone on the jobsite. Thanks again for your help on this difficult project, you have been a valuable member of my team, we look forward to using A-Core again on future projects.
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.
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 deserves a great deal of praise for your technical knowledge and positive attitude in performing this work on the Los Alamos National Laboratory.
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.
I am Nathan Jones, Plant Engineer with Avista at Noxon Rapids Dam. Over the past weeks, Billy and his crew worked for Lydig on our transformer deck sump project. I was impressed with A-Core and Billy's work, and would like to pass on my compliments to him and his crew.The cutting project was not easy. As an active and operating hydro dam, our drains go directly to the river. Extreme care had to be taken during all stages of work to eliminate any waste or drain flow. While cutting the sumps in directly over and around the drains, Billy and his crew had zero spill incidents due to exercising the required care and controls necessary to maintain this requirement. This required continuous cleanup and housekeeping, and was performed to meet all our requirements.In addition, Billy and his crew maintained an aggressive pace to keep up with Lydigs' requirements and our schedule.
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.
I want to personally thank you for your support over that the past 30 years. RLW would not have made it this far without great friends and subcontractors who make us look good. All of us here at Ralph L. Wadsworth Construction look forward to working with you for another 30 years.
