It was required that this work be done in an expeditious manner…TKTMJ was more than up to the challenge and always exceeded our expectations. The quality of work was exceptional and in many cases was performed and completed in the same day. They would regularly correct problems and provide support beyond that which would normally be required. I would recommend TKTMJ for any future work to be done.

This contractor worked safely, diligently, and completes this project three months ahead of schedule. There were no safety incidents, considering they used 18 tri-axel trucks on small levees with 90 degree turns this is truly a display of outstanding safety control and management efficiency.
