Sharing these special emails, letters and statements inspires our teams, boosts our morale and promotes the collaborative culture we strive to create on each and every project.

Thank you for your enthusiasm and encouragement!

  • From day one, the people working on the Virginia Street Bridge project have brought so much positive energy to the area. They have been very innovative, passionate and committed to meeting the schedules without compromising quality. As the completion is near, several times a day I hear so many kind words about ‘the builders’ from business owners to residents to people working in City Hall to people on the streets about what an ‘amazing project this is.’ I am very grateful to be part of such a hard-working and dedicated team!
