TESTIMONIALS

“Throughout this project C&W’s team maintained exceptional client relations, both with Alstom Power and the electric utility. C&W’s experienced field supervision team successfully integrated and directed multiple crafts, while providing on site field design expertise required due to the nature of this retrofit project, and the need to adjust for unintended circumstances on the fly.”

Michael Gurski, Senior Project Manager - Alstom Power – AP ComPower, Inc.
