The Don Mensendick Elementary school (City of Glendale, AZ) was a time-sensitive project. We had to leave sections of work incomplete due to the school schedule and address some of those work operations during school holiday breaks. Then return and accelerate the production schedule to meet the project timelines to allow the children back to their classrooms. ACI addressed all underground utility work associated to McCarthy’s building of a new 2 story large added class room building. McCarthy Builders was very impressed with our services and work ethic in and around the school grounds.

ADOT

Arizona Department of Transportation 2009

The opportunity to represent our ADOT DBE program as the Contractor of the year is a great honor.
We’ve had the great pleasure of working with our DBE community. It has provided a great sense of TEAM work and it has helped us collectively learn business development practices. ACI would like to thank Mr. Edward Edison and the entire Civil Rights staff for their commitment and dedication to bringing training, education and special skills to all DBE’s in our community. Preparing a company to work with General Contractors & Primes within the ADOT procurement guidelines is the target we all should be preparing or already be prepared for. Prioritize to address your AFR’s (Administration, Finances, and Resources) and when called upon to perform you are ready, willing and able to TCOB (Take Care of Business).

In closing, I encourage all those certified as DBE’s to participate and get involved in making these programs successful – even in these difficult economic times. Change can only happen if we “Make it happen”
