The three mile southbound stretch between Highways 55 and 394 of the 494 reconstruction project opened to the traveling public two months prior to its required opening date. The C.S.

Assistant Project Manager
Joel [Egan Field Leader] has been fantastic to work with on the installation of the GE chiller. I appreciate his quality work throughout the installation and the updates he provided on the progress. Joel’s attention to detail has helped to ensure that the new chiller will meet our requirements now and into the future by identifying issues and working through them to implement robust solutions.
Senior Process Engineer
We were experiencing problems with our Sielox Pinnacle software connecting to the controller, due to a server crash. Martin [Egan Field Leader] was able to get our system back up and running over the phone, in minimal time. We have no documentation on this system and Martin’s help troubleshooting the system was greatly appreciated. Great job!
Infrastructure Support Analyst
Egan has a strong reputation built on safety and we often say it’s not what you do when someone is watching, it is what you do by nature. Jim and Jerry [Egan Field Leaders] showed what they do by nature and I wanted to take a minute to share with you the positive example these guys are. Thank you and your employees for helping make FilmTec a safe place to work.
EH&C Coordinator
We would like to recognize and express our gratitude to Brian [InterClad Site Superintendent] for his recent efforts at U.S. Bank Stadium. We worked closely with him to troubleshoot and maximize the operation of the provided door controllers. Brian was instrumental during this effort and should be commended for his proactive problem solving and diligent work efforts. These efforts were a critical component in obtaining our certificate of occupancy from the City of Minneapolis.
Senior MEP Engineer
I would like to recognize Brian [Egan Field Leader] for his outstanding work and performance on the Snelling Avenue project. His coordination, communication, dedication to safety, and quality work assisted Thomas and Sons, and all contractors involved, in completing this large project on time and within a short schedule. We look forward to working with him and utilizing his work ethic and skills on future projects.
