WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING
MEYERSDALE BATTERY ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEM
JJB performed all facets of civil work: earthwork, concrete work and underground utility work—including site prep and balancing. Work included drilling piers, forming pads, excavation and backfill for underground conduit, yard and road stone. Because we handled the project from start to finish, it allowed control over the extremely condensed schedule requested by the customer. The site was very tight and restricting, requiring a great deal of coordination among our team to work efficiently.
“We have worked with JJ Barney on numerous projects; they have always provided us with a safe and quality project that meets schedule. They understand the importance of deadlines and our customers needs.”
–Randy Reints, Director of Construction, The Morse Group
We’ve successfully completed a variety of jobs over the years, including building addition foundations, walls, floors, truck docks, decorative concrete, parking structure, valet area, sidewalks and curbs. Working inside and outside an operating casino presents its challenges, but we met those challenges head-on without impacting the customer.
“I’m always impressed with the level of service I find when working with JJ Barney. Their employees always respond quickly and act immediately to address any problems that arise.”
–Brian Deming, Vice President, MiG Construction
JJB performed work in a live substation from the ground up. We successfully built a flat surface on the side of a hill, completed site balancing with cuts and fills, created a drainage system and surfaced drainage improvements, drilled through solid bedrock and built slab foundations. Building on a flat site on existing bedrock, we had to navigate challenges because of the limestone bedrock on top of less-than-ideal weather conditions. Despite the challenges, we successfully completed the job and strengthened our process of anchoring in proposed foundations to the bedrock in lieu of drilling to greater depths.
“JJ Barney is an excellent company to work with. Their knowledge and expertise allowed us to finish our project ahead of schedule and under budget. I look forward to working with them on all of our future projects.”
–Bret Wheatlake, Estimating and Business Development Manager, The Hydaker-Wheatlake Co.
ITC TRANSMISSION CO. VISTEON SUBSTATION
JJB performed earthwork and drainage work in an existing substation that was causing drainage issues to surrounding residential properties. Working under adverse conditions caused by the ponding water, we made vast improvements to create detention areas and drain those areas by gravity and force.
“JJB is an extremely reliable company that ITC has used for the past 13 years to provide a great variety of our civil construction needs; and has done so with high quality and nearly zero subcontracting.”
–Tom Kirby of ITC Transmission Co.
