Ashford construction work being done the right way
Tuesday September 4, 2012 | By:Glenn Cooley |
I am writing this letter to correct some information presented in your Aug. 18, 2012 article that discussed work on the town of Ashford’s Fox Valley Road culvert project.
E&M Engineers and Surveyors, PC is the town’s design engineer for the project, not a subcontractor to D&H Excavating, the prime construction contractor.
Further, the construction specifications that we prepared called for new and unused sheet piling to be installed during the construction.
The piling subcontractor to D&H Excavating bid the job with the intention of using used materials.
When the town’s construction inspector witnessed the placement of used sheet piling, he rightly stopped the work until new and unused material was obtained by the contractor.
