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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
A-Core of Idaho Inc. was a major subcontractor on our John Day Dam Deflector Project. The work they performed was critical to the successful completion of this project. A-Core is a very professional company and has progressed with their work to our satisfaction. They respond in a timely manner to the demands of the project. Their work forces and supervisors are very competent and are readily available to execute job requirements. we recommend A-Core of Idaho as a subcontractor to perform drilling and concrete demolition for any kind of project we have for the Corp of Army Engineers.
