Loch Raven Dam Operating Facilities

ACE is one of the rare general contractors that places value in maintaining a positive, enriching, and trusting relationship with its subcontractors. They are extremely engaging with all aspects of a project. From project management to field supervision, ACE representatives put forth efforts that ensure there is a safe working environment, subs are paid on time, and change orders are negotiated honestly and fairly. We are appreciative of the fruitful opportunities we have had to work with ACE in the past. We look forward to continued success on the future projects.

Joppatowne WWTP UV Design/Build

When issues were found, they were quickly brought to the group’s attention and resolved promptly to prevent time constraint issues. There was also a confidence level in the talent and abilities amongst all the team members which fostered the project success. The ACE team brought ideas, options, and solutions when conflicts or problems were found. I would highly recommend ACE for wastewater or water plant construction projects. They are uniquely qualified in this arena. Their staff knows and understands the processes utilized by our industry, and grasps the impact construction activities can have on facility operations.

ACE completed the project in a very timely manner, finishing the bulk of work on the new WWTP ahead of the project schedule allowing start-up sooner than planned. ACE worked proactively to coordinate the tie-in of the new pumping station to allow a near seamless switchover to the new facility. ACE worked with Town staff during start-up, to an extent probably beyond their contract requirements, to address start-up operating issues.
