"This letter is written to provide a reference to the professionalism exhibited by Poole & Kent Company of Florida during the recent construction of Jupiter’s 14.5 MGD Nanofiltration Water Treatment Facility.
During this highly complex construction operation, Poole & Kent’s staff worked cooperatively in delivering a product that met the Town Utility’s high quality standards and well within its established budget. Value engineering efforts were continuous throughout the project.
Thanks to Stephen Polk’s, Poole & Kent Project Manager, insight and cooperation many enhancements to the facility were accomplished on the fly. Should anyone desire further information on Poole & Kent’s performance with the Town, I would welcome their call." -- David L. Brown, Director of Utilities, Town of Jupiter
"I would like to express my appreciation to Poole & Kent Company of Florida for your service to the City of Fort Lauderdale on the recent nanofiltration process upgrade to the City's historic Walter E. Peele Dixie Water Treatment Plant.
Poole & Kent's experience, construction expertise, and willingness to work with the City and our design, construction management, and program management consultants in developing a cooperative, teaming atmosphere were instrumental in making this project a dramatic success.
As you know, the project was successfully completed in July 2008, and subsequently received an award from the Construction Management Association of America (CMMA) and was recognized in Southeast Construction magazine in the magazine's annual "Best of 2008" project completion. On behalf of the City and the project team, I would like to thank you for a job well done." -- Rick Johnson, Regional Water Facilities Manager, City of Fort Lauderdale
"I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for the excellant job that Poole & Kent did on the Indian River County expansion of the North Reverse Osmosis Plant.
Although construction projects have often been completed in accordance with plans and budget, very few can demonstrate the ability to deal with changing circumstances as Poole & Kent did with this project.
From the very beginning, the project faced a dilemma of having to begin the project with serious questions related to the final construction permit. Your company was able to immediately work with the County and the Consulting Engineer in oder to establish a construction sequence that allowed the project to move forward. The progress was timely and well coordinated." -- W. Erik Olson, Director of Utility Services, Indian River County Department of Utilities Services
