September 11, 2001 was a day that changed our nation forever. The images of the towers collapsing after the hijacked planes flew into them are etched into the memory of all those who saw it unfold in person or on television.
This horrific day could have been much worse if it weren’t for the heroes on board United Airlines Flight 93.
The Flight 93 Memorial is now sacred ground that honors the brave men and women who sacrificed it all to save the lives of others.
Every project we are involved with at ACE Consulting is special, but some have a deeper significance than others.
As a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), our team was honored to be part of the Flight 93 National Memorial Paving Surface Rehabilitation Project. This project was governed by the U.S. National Park Service (NPS) and involved rehabbing a 7-mile stretch of asphalt, including:
As part of the project, our team also rehabilitated a 20,000-square-foot parking lot for visitors and employees to the Flight 93 Memorial.
Several members of our team who are veterans were deeply involved with this project, including:
- Anthony Cantor (onsite CMR)
- Dylon Leymon (Internal Project Manager)
- Matt Ellis
- Scott Arias
The estimated project duration was 130 days to ensure it was complete before the 21st anniversary of 9/11 this year.
Our team stepped up in a big way, completed this project well ahead of schedule and delivered the final acceptance letter 100 days after the project started.
“The opportunity to serve on a project with considerable historical and emotional significance is a proud moment in our company’s tenure. The national park service needed this project completed with a short turnaround time. To be able to contribute to the success of a project that exceeded quality and timeline expectations feels good. We did not want any complications right before the 21st anniversary of this tragic event,” states Scott Arias, CEO of ACE Consulting.
