During construction, Ahtna provided a detailed schedule with accurate 3-week look aheads. These schedules were crucial to providing advanced notice to installation personnel regarding heavy crane lifts and HVAC disruptions
[Ahtna has] an extremely skilled staff with a wide range of expertise. They are committed to providing the highest quality product and best overall value to their clients. I have nothing to say but good things about them and without hesitation or qualification give them my highest recommendation.
Ahtna has delivered AKARNG’s vision and commitment of promoting environmental stewardship with this exemplary achievement through demonstrating leadership, innovation, and dedication.
The Alaska Army National Guard was awarded the 2009 Environmental Restoration Award for an Installation by the National Guard Bureau in recognition of our environmental program, which in the last two years has successfully cleaned up 11 sites in Western Alaska working with our preferred contractor, [Ahtna]. As the largest, most northern and least populated state, Alaska’s distance, lack of infrastructure, and extremely short season for fieldwork can make it challenging to get the job done, with 75% of sites located off the road network, requiring site access only by air or sea. [Ahtna] performed exceptionally in dealing with the ultimate test in logistics presented by these remote sites, directly contributing to the success of this program.
I would like to congratulate and thank you for the exceptional professionalism and customer service I have received from Ahtna for the past three years.
…Ahtna has met our contractual requirements and exceeded many to the benefit of the FAA…Ahtna has become one of our preferred west coast contractors.
GSA and the customer were very pleased with the financial tracking and invoicing systems that AHTNA had in place. In many cases AHTNA provided betterments at no additional cost to the government.
[Ahtna's] project team continually met or exceeded deadlines and suggested new and more effective ways to accomplish field tasks and deliverables. The Project Manager and associated support staff responded to changes seamlessly, responded to data requests expeditiously, and worked well with the stakeholders…the contractor's team always performed in a very professional manner…The field team excelled where other contractors have struggled.
Ahtna has successfully executed projects for AFCEE in Alaska. These include the installation of a major drinking water production well at Eielson AFB and the ongoing projects for the remediation of contamination at Lake Louise. In these projects, Ahtna has partnered with the Air Force, provided good value, and managed the regulatory process with expertise.
Even with the 36 client directed changes, Ahtna’s team did everything possible to maintain a cohesive schedule, including keeping operational retail floor-space during busy holiday periods like Christmas Eve.
The crane company and Ahtna were constantly evaluating each aspect of the lifts to provide a safe work environment for the crew as well as base personnel. All crane work was accomplished on the weekend and all new HVAC equipment was functioning properly by Monday morning, with no disruption to installation personnel or operations.
…Ahtna’s responsiveness only bolsters your current high standing with me and my organization. Thanks for a job well done.
To a great degree, Ahtna’s long term success at Fort Ord can be attributed to the personnel involved…Truly, Ahtna has fielded a great team here at Fort Ord.
This project was completed safely with no lost time incidents to the team. Every meeting started with a safety minute. They maintained a completely safe and clean project throughout the complex renovations, including the safety of store patrons throughout busy holiday shopping periods.
All phases of work were well coordinated and the final deliverables met and in many cases exceeded the Client's expectations.
In the field, the Contractor demonstrated the highest quality of professional performance in all aspects of their day-to-day work performance…
The teams under Mr. Finnigan’s tutelage are extremely competent in the field, timely with submittals, and do not pursue unrequested change orders. The contracts/task orders require minimal oversight, which is important to the FAA, especially in remote Alaska. The submittals, work plans, data, and final reports are generally complete, thorough, well-written, and require minor or no revisions.
I know I can always rely on Ahtna to put the Client first and ensure all work is performed in accordance with the Performance Work Statement.
Mr. Finnigan and his team have always provided the FAA a high degree of professionalism and quality services…The exemplary work performed by the Ahtna team has established Mr. Finnigan and Ahtna as one of the top contractor's for many of FAA's projects.
The Contractor is customer service driven. The interaction between the Contractor and the Government is extraordinary.
