These guys have done a great job putting their safety plans together, and they are an awesome group to work with.

LeChase Construction Services, LLC

...Rochester Rigging continues to accomplish their work as it should be done. I typically find that a contractor’s field performance is in direct proportion to the status of their written program, but that is not the case with your personnel. I look forward to the day your written program catches up with the current performance of your field personnel.

Your responsiveness and attention to detail helped us to finish this project within budget and deliver the headquarters building on time to the Owner. It is because of this, that I can honestly say that I look forward to working with you and your firm on future projects. Keep up the good work!
