"I have been thoroughly impressed with the results that Whitaker/Ellis has been able to achieve on the concrete for Multnomah Station Apartments. The W/E team did a great job coordinating expectations before the project, providing full-scale mockups and running a robust pre-construction meeting. With great preparation came a wonderful outcome as they went above and beyond on the boardform concrete, utilizing actual boards for formwork instead of a liner, reducing air bubbles, and patching anchorage points with great skill. W/E’s hard work has helped bring the project intent into reality.”

"I would like to thank you for the outstanding performance and cooperation from the Whitaker /Ellis team. Throughout the project and especially today. It was a relief to see the army of men that showed up ready and willing to do whatever was asked of them. The gentlemen understood the urgency of the situation and the tasks ahead. With that attitude and the coordination of your team, they all put their heads down and went to work. We were able to complete all of the trench preparation and the niche covers installation in 8 hrs. The site is clean and ready for concrete on Monday morning."
