“We recommend Portland Utilities Construction Company”
"Your company finished the project on time and under duress due to the late shipment of equipment. No project is perfect, but your company communicated and dealt with problems as they occurred and to our satisfaction.
We recommend Portland Utilities Construction Company, and complement Rick Hamm and Ernie Woodcock on their efforts to make the project a success." - James Bunham, Director of Engineering, Harriman Utility Board
“[PUCC] have always been very competent in the work they perform, and have always done exactly what we've asked of them.”
"I am writing to recommend the services of Portland Utilities Construction Co., LLC. The City of Portland has been using Portland Utilities Construction Co., LLC for sewer rehabilitation projects for many years. PUCC has been essential in the installation of lift-stations, sewer lines and various other municipal projects, and the City has been completely satisfied with the quality of their work, including workmanship, timeliness and site cleanup after the project has been completed. They do an excellent job and are always punctual and professional.
We have also hired PUCC on several occasions for extra jobs, to camera sewer lines, clean sewer lines and various lift-station repairs. They have always been very competent in the work they perform, and have always done exactly what we've asked of them.
I'm happy to recommend the services of Portland Utilities Construction Co., LLC, job superintendent James Fowler and manager/owner Ernie Woodcock." - Steve Whitehead, Asst. Director Public Works, City of Portland, TN
“Overall, I feel that every project we have worked on together has gone really well, even when presented with many challenges that always inevitably come up regarding sewer improvement work."
"As a field superintendent Mr. Tesla has always been very professional and knowledgeable regarding the sewer improvement work. Also, both he and Mike have always working well with myself when challenges from the field come up and change orders have been required. In addition, the quality of the work by the crews in the field has been very good and I am not aware of any major issues regarding quality of the actual sewer work, as well as the pavement and landscaping and yard restoration work that is typically a very important part of comprehensive sewer rehabilitation projects.
Overall, I feel that every project we have worked on together has gone really well, even when presented with many challenges that always inevitably come up regarding sewer improvement work. I look forward to continuing working with Portland Utilities when those opportunities present themselves in the future." - Dough Douthat, Project Manager, Knoxville Utilities Board
“Quality of work was excellent.”
"PUCC has provided construction services on FMA designed sewer rehabilitation and replacement projects for the Knoxville Utilities Board and LaFollette Utilities Board. As Engineer of record, we were very satisfied with the work performed by PUCC. Quality of work was excellent. Projects were completed on time and without conflict. Were performed included open cut replacement, pipe bursting, manhole rehabilitation, and lateral renewal. The LaFollette project has a very aggressive schedule to allow the Owner to reapply for a grant. PUCC committed the required labor resources and equipment to the project." - Michael Macindoe, O.E., Fulghum Macindoe & Associates Inc.
