Caribou Construction Electrical Transmission Construction Experts


To whom it may concern:

I am writing this letter as a reference for Caribou Construction. Caribou construction recently built for us a 138 KV to 34.5 KV Substation in Riddle, Idaho. The site is quite remote with layers of solid rock. I was quite concerned about the project from the beginning due to its location.

I knew within days of awarding the contract to Caribou we had made the right choice. Within one week, equipment was on the job for site prep and things actually moved much quicker than I had anticipated.

The project was done in a very timely manner. The entire construction process went extremely smooth from start to finish.

I very much enjoyed working with the staff and would highly recommend the work of Caribou Construction to anyone in the future.

Subject: Main Transformer Alarm and Plant Shutdown

Dear Mr. Thelen:

We appreciate your subcontractors', Caribou Construction's Breck Glassinger and Brannon Brown and Riverside Inc's Dennis Daugherty and Steve Smith, expedient contribution in resolving the Arrowrock HP outage initiated last Monday morning.

They pulled all the resources together and accomplished this feat in only a day and a half after the initial shutdown. Without their resolve, this could have taken a week.

Many thanks to your team keeping the down time so short.

To Whom It May Concern;

Caribou, Inc. has worked on several projects, at this, and other Cooperatives that I have been employed at. I have a great deal of confidence that the work they perfom will always meet or exceed our standards. Therefore, I have no apprehension about allowing them work for our system in the future.

Caribou Construction has constructed or expanded four substations and installed eight miles of underground primary power cable for Fall River Rural Electric Cooperative. Two the substation expansions were under my direct supervision.

Each project was a quality installation and was completed timely. The personnel were professional and worked safely. We would not hesitate to employ Caribou Construction on any of our future projects.

"Caribou Inc. built eight substations for Barrick. These substations ranged for 5MVA to 40MVA and were both steel and the wood. Caribou also installed the SCADA system for these systems. I was very pleased with the Caribou work and would use them again."

"I would like to commend those personnel with Caribou Construction for the quality of preparation and craftsmanship demonstrated during the installation of the 115 kv circuit switch at the B.P.A. tap point.

Through their extra efforts, the tie-in by B.P.A. personnel started as scheduled and was trouble free. Once again, thank you for a job well done."
