Hard work by Galloway Oilfield Construction is earning the company accolades south of Canada.
The company was recognized with a business award called Outstanding Performance on Power Projects by the Bechtel Corporation. Bechtel is managing a large transmission line upgrade for ATCO Electric, called the Eastern Alberta Transmission Line.
“The project in its entirety is huge,” says Andrea Taylor, business development manager with Galloway.
“Anything that they’ve needed done, we’ve done it on time,” she added.
Bechtel is the fifth largest private corporation in the United States and Taylor feels the award shows the quality of work the Ponoka company has accomplished. Galloway is the only company from this project to receive the award and the only Canadian company with the accolade.
Taylor says there have been many challenges ensuring the project’s tight deadlines were met. Among them was the case when Galloway crews had to wait for certain migratory birds to finish their nesting before starting. The award is already earning the company recognition in other publications and Taylor said she has had to put some articles together for construction magazines.
