I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the outstanding work your company performed for us during the development of the Lawnes Point subdivision. You and your team completed the two bores planned within a very tight time frame, which is always difficult, but was particularly so on this project given the engineering specification changes and delays in permitting.

Your professional and cooperative approach to the job is to be commended and your ability to keep communication flowing between the engineering firm, county officials and Land Partners, as well as your problem solving on the ground was key to this project being successfully completed on time. It was a pleasure doing business with you and your organization and I will continue to recommend your services to others.

Derrick C. Smith, Project Engineer
Land Partners

It is a distinct pleasure to write and thank you for all of the wonderful work that Atlantic Underground has done for RJ Smith Companies over the past few years. Regardless of the size, whether it has been a forty foot bore or a six hundred foot bore, Atlantic Underground has always produced an excellent product…on time and on budget.

You and your team’s professionalism and commitment are always extremely helpful in the successful completion of our projects. It certainly makes our job easier knowing that Atlantic Underground can be relied upon to complete any bores specified in a given project on schedule and budget. My staff is appreciative of the level of communication and the ‘can do ‘ attitude that you bring to each and every project.

Thank you again.

Richard Smith, President
