"...Rochester Rigging continues to accomplish their work as it should be done. I typically find that a contractor's field performance is in direct proportion to the status of their written program, but that is not the case with your personnel. I look forward to the day your written program catches up with the current performance of your field personnel."

Most recently the structural and miscellaneous steel fabrication and installation at Pinnacle North Development, Phase 1 in Canandaigua, NY.

I appreciate their team approach!"
