“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

“We have found them to be professional and accommodating and the outcome of past projects has always been successful."
"PUCC successfully executed the contract and completed several difficult installations. They undertook a pipe-burst application of using 12-inch ductile iron pipe in a 20-foot cut as well as a shallow application beneath an existing box culvert. Both efforts were completed successfully. Replacement of a collapsed sewer in an existing State highway was also included. This effort was successfully completed although the conditions of excavation turned out to be different than PUCC originally estimated. They did not complain and completed the work although it took them longer than anticipated. TDOT was satisfied with the final work and pavement repaire where this line was restored.
The overall project was completed on time and under budget. One change order was execured and PUCC was east to work with for this circumstance. The Owner as well as Hethcoat and Davis, Inc. were very satisfied with the work done by Portland Utilities Construction Co., LLC for the Sparta project.
In addition, we have worked with PUCC on several other projects in the past. We have found them to be professional and accommodating and the outcome of past projects has always been successful." -Keith Davis, PE, Hethcoat & Davis, INC. Engineers and Planners
