Caldwell's performance on this project was outstanding as exhibited by our ability to expediently design the foundation and steel components of the project, order material, install the foundation, fabricate steel components, erect the welded steel structure, apply the protective coatings system, and install electrical components of the project. All construction aspects of this project met all governing agencies' construction standards and methods. In addition, Caldwell was awarded "Contractor of the Month" in July 2010 by Caddell/Yates Joint Venture for our organization of crew and working area, adherence to job site safety, how well our crew worked with project inspectors and site management staff, and our ability to meet the demands of the project schedule.
