2/28/2020 - Message from LCDR James Galloway

Su-Mo Builders Inc. –

LT Baeza and I conducted a walkthrough of Anderson Hall this morning.  I wanted to share with you my observations. 

The site was bustling with workers wearing all required PPE and moving with a sense of purpose.   The quality of the work being performed was excellent; notably the tile work in the bathrooms.  LT Baeza did tell me that he frequently see the QCM and SSHO walking the site, proactively identifying and documenting issues.  Lastly, I do appreciate your close coordination and communication with the FEAD and Facilities team to identify opportunities in the schedule to get ahead and keep the project on track.   Truly, great job on all fronts!    Thank you for your continued commitment to the project while ensuring that Anderson Hall can continue to execute its mission.   Keep up the great work.  As always, if there is anything you need from me/us, please do let me know.
