Towards the end of November 2017, A-Core of Idaho Concrete Pouring Division was hired to pour a shop slab in an existing structure at a large steel erection company in Idaho Falls, ID. The customer called A-Core for several reasons to tackle this project starting with the great relationship we have built throughout the years, competitive pricing and what sets us apart from the our competitors is our laser screed. The 12,000 square foot shop had a dirt floor that A-Core had to excavate down 6” all throughout, as well as excavate as needed for the footings required for the customer to install their cranes. From that point, the grade was leveled and compacted. We then tied rebar 18” on center throughout the slab as well as adding rebar as needed for the crane footings. Concrete was then pumped into the building where we were able to use our laser screed, making the slab perfectly flat. The finish of the slab required us to use our riding power trowel, giving the slab a nice slick finish. Our pouring division was able to complete the project start to finish in less than a week. A-Core then took the extra step to have the slab tested for its flatness where we were graded very high / very flat. Overall, the owner of the steel company called A-Core’s team thanking us for completing the job on time, on budget and he said that the slab looked incredible.
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 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 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.

They gave their all to bring the job to a successful completion with excellent workmanship.
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.
