A Note from Ron Mann Emery Sapp & Sons Superintendent

“This project contained adequate manpower and equipment to run the job twenty-four hours a day seven days a week. This allowed us to capitalize on exceptional winter weather which in return allowed us to deliver the building pads & site ahead of schedule. Our team was able to save large amounts of money by re-using roughly 45,000 tons waste rock that was crushed on site decreasing the amount of material that was purchased & delivering the savings to the owner. This was a very successful project for us & has created opportunities for more work in the future.”
