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.
I would like to just take a minute to say what an awesome job your Yuma crew performed. All work was performed in a professional manor and the job was completed faster and better than I could of imagined. Looking forward to working A-Core on the next phase and future projects.
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.
We at CSW are very pleased with your early performance on the B Joint project. Your success is obviously due to your extensive preparation, attention to detail and commitment. It is not going unnoticed. Keep up the great work. Be safe! Thank you.
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.
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.
We recognize the effort A-Core crews put forth to finish the I-15 joint saw and reseal project ahead of schedule. We are grateful for the extra effort put forth and commend A-Core on the high quality crews and supervisors they employ. We are overall very pleased with the work performed on this project and with the good working relationship established with A-Core. We look forward to working with them on future projects.
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.
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.
