APG was awarded a multi-million dollar contract for renovations at the Amalie Arena. The catch: all work had to be completed in just four months while sometimes shutting down completely for special events. While we all loved watching the Lightning in the playoffs this year, it meant that our crew couldn’t start work until a full three weeks after we were supposed to be on site. George Loop (General Superintendent), Bryan Greene (Project Superintendent), Dan Tipton (Lead Foreman), and Anthony Ciquera (Project Manager) wasted no time in organizing a massive crew to get it done. We currently have 38 field technicians on site during the week and that number swells to over 60 on the weekends. Many have been working ten hour days, sometimes seven days a week to meet the needs of our client. George Loop was quick to tell everyone at the office that he “can’t say enough about Bryan, Dan, and Anthony, especially considering the pressure these guys are under every day. We have met every challenge thrown our way and I’m equally proud of everyone that has helped us work this job on the weekends.” Your dedication and teamwork are truly appreciated!
Also in Tampa, Restoration Hardware will be a show-stopping specialty furniture store when it’s completed at the end of October. Ted Maczuga (Project Manager) has been working whenever needed to keep up with dozens of changes while John Lenges (Project Superintendent) has been running a crew of 27 on ten hour shifts. Look for a Project Spotlight article in the coming months—the pictures will make your jaw drop!
This dedication to performance in the field hasn’t only been seen on these two jobsites. All across the company, we’ve received letters of thanks from clients making comments like these:
- “I’m officially impressed”
- “Makes me wonder why I ever used another company”
- “They did a great job dealing with a big mess and I really appreciate it!”
- “Once again I am ethically forced to take the time to commend APG for excellence!”
