    OUR CUSTOMERS

    Glacier managed this elevated tank project expertly and assisted in creating an atmosphere in which all parties, the owner, contractor, and engineer, worked together to develop a collaborative environment that encouraged the successful completion of a project that could have otherwise been contentious. They completed the work with honesty, integrity, and precision. I would be happy to work with this team on another project in the future.

    The City of Westminster has successfully worked with Glacier on two recent projects, on both projects Glacier provided timely and complete submittals on specified items, skilled crew members, and effective project leadership. Most importantly, their staff worked well with City staff to listen, discuss, and resolve issues that arose during construction. Together we constructed important infrastructure for the City.

    City of Westminster

    Working with Glacier Construction on a project for the City of Louisville at the Sid Copeland Water Treatment Plant was successful. Jennifer, the PM, kept pushing the project forward and kept organized records for shop drawings, pay applications and changer orders albeit limited change orders. Schuyler, the superintendent, was very attentive in the field, listening to City and Engineer suggestions for plant integration and providing sound solutions. Overall, in working with Glacier the end product was better than the original designed scheme.
