Hunter Power Plant
Situated in South Central Utah is Hunter Power Plant, a coal driven power plant that generates electricity for thousands of PacificCorp customers. In order for the Hunter Power Plant to effectively continue generating such power upgrades to a larger blower fan were necessary. The replacement of such fans required for A-Core teams to cut two massive pieces of the concrete foundation. A-Core used specially designed wire saws to saw off the two 12-feet wide by 17-feet thick pieces of concrete.
The project was required to be completed during a plant shutdown. Therefore, two specialized crews worked around the clock, 24/7. A back up saw was mobilized in the case of an unexpected break down or emergency. To the contractor’s astonishment, the entire project was completed in just seven days, which was two days ahead of schedule.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
