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 deserves a great deal of praise for your technical knowledge and positive attitude in performing this work on the Los Alamos National Laboratory.
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.
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.
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.
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 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 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.
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.
