Sandridge School Appreciation

A special thank you from Jack Mccleverty, Director of Building and Grounds | Sandridge School District 172

Re: Steve Lesher.
Gentleman, I want to let you know how much all of us here at Sandridge School appreciate the decision to put Steve Lesher on our job. Steve gave daily progress reports, kept his work space clean even with the mess from others and runs a very organized crew. It was a pleasure to know that I did not have to look over his shoulder as with the other contractors. When problems came up Steve Did not hesitate to explain what happened and offer his solution. His personality and smooth communication skills with all around him made for a relaxed and enjoyable environment. After meeting and working with Steve and John I will recommend F.E. Moran to any person looking for pipefitters. I have already told the maintenance group that I am a member of they all need to try F.E. Moran. Thank you again. We look forward to doing future business with Steve and F.E. Moran.

In Memory of Bret Deval

It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to our friend and colleague Bret Deval.

A Thank You Letter from Executive Construction

Congratulations to F.E. Moran, John Hewitt, and Ray Polino, the lead pipefitter on Project M for being recognized on Project M in a thank you letter.

Lee Robinson, Senior Project Superintendent for Executive Construction:

I am sending this note on behalf of the Executive Construction Project M's team, as we want to recognize one of your lead pipefitters on the site, Ray Polino. There was an incident @ the site where a Base Building fire protection line had a failure, and Ray who was working in the vicinity, had the mindset and training to immediately respond by quickly heading to the stairwell, closing the fire protection valve and opening up the drain line, followed by a call to Field Management to advise of the situation. This is the exact response that is hoped for from a valued Partner, and this speaks volumes about FE Moran’s commitment to safety, and as it relates to this project, your pipefitter foreman Kevin Neary communicating with his crew the discussions and protocol, in this case, shutting the valve, from the Weekly coordination meetings. 
Please pass this up the ladder to your Team, as this action most certainly deserves internal recognition. Kudos to Ray and Kevin on what was an A+ response..

 John Hewitt had this to say, "Ray, I personally want to simply say thank you.  What you did yesterday shows everything we are looking for in a leader and a representative of F.E. Moran."

Brian Moran continued, "This is the type of action and attitude that continues to differentiate F.E. Moran from everyone else.  Thank you!"

FPN Wins Two Big Projects

In the past two days, FPN has been awarded two selective projects over $1 million.  The first project is the Cook County Hyatt.  They will be working with Walsh on that project.  The other is OMNI's new 39-story residential high rise.

Congratulations to Ken Votava on being awarded these projects.  Thank you to Ron Cousineau, who was the foreman on two other OMNI projects and played a big role in helping them land the OMNI project.

These jobs are great examples of how FPN is working as a team to get the right jobs.  This is a great start to the year.
