FINLEY's expertise in both design and construction engineering was invaluable for this "first of its kind" project.”

"I write this letter on behalf of FINLEY as a testament to the high caliber of engineering work provided to Metric Engineering….FINLEY has a thorough understanding of the local transportation environment and expertise working with the Florida Department of Transportation. As our engineer, they were able to implement best practices to identify the most appropriate type of bridge for the location. FINLEY provided alternatives that were sensitive to the natural environment and "contractor-friendly"; yet providing a sensible economic solution for FDOT. I was impressed with FINLEY's expertise and their ability to serve a diverse direct and indirect clientele."

Keith A. Waugh - VP, Leware Construction Company
"We had learned of their [FINLEY] expertise through previous projects they had worked on in Israel and we met with them for several days of meeting prior to the launch of the project (Road 431). Their professionalism and hand-on approach to our needs were extremely gratifying and reassuring due to the fact we were implementing several new design and construction firsts here in Israel...We had a positive day-to-day working relationship that allowed us to complete the project on time and under budget. Their contribution, both in time and quality, in solving problems was outstanding. We are continuing to work with this firm on other bridge projects, as past success is a good basis for future achievements.”

“…I would like to state how impressed I was with the professional conduct of the FINLEY staff and management and their timely delivery of an alternative steel erection plan during the bid phase for the Reconstruction of the Moses Wheeler Bridge in Milford, CT....FINLEY was able to provide us with an incremental launch construction method for a steel girder bridge as a safe and cost-effective alternative to utilizing large cranes adjacent to Metro North tracks and an overhead gantry for the third erection phase...This erection scheme would allow Middlesex to assemble the entire bridge on the roadway approaches, greatly improving safety conditions and the speed of construction...FINLEY's attention to detail in designing a safe, cost-effective and expedient method of construction to erecting the structural steel augmented our ability to be very competitive in the bid process."
William Keller - Chief Estimator-Northeast Region, Middlesex Corporation
"FINLEY's work on the project has been exceptional and their input invaluable to the inspection and engineering of the structure. The inspector provided by FINLEY was an energetic and intelligent young engineer who exhibited thorough understanding of the construction method and an enthusiasm for the project. His expertise was exceptional and greatly enhanced our inspection efforts. From a design standpoint, FINLEY's office engineers responded quickly and concisely when asked to review a submittal or shop drawing. FINLEY's office engineers provided outstanding support when issues arose in the field and the solutions they proposed for several significant issues onsite were effective and in some instances enabled the project to continue instead of being stopped due to site issues. All of the FINLEY personnel we interacted with were highly professional and experienced and they addressed our issues immediately and to great effect. We are glad to have had FINLEY on our team for this project and if the opportunity arises in the future, we will not hesitate to work with FINLEY again.”
John Hetrick, P.E.. - Project Manager, SAI Consulting Engineers
