Handled quickly and professionally with clarity

Cleary Construction was the winning bidder for our Veterans Memorial Force Main Project that consisted of approximately 29,000 linear feet of 24” Force Main, 1800 linear feet of 16” Force Main and an Oxygen Injection System for Odor Control.

Project was bid in January of 2020 before the current Pandemic and was then started in late June of 2020. Even with the changing rules and guidelines as the COVID-19 Pandemic was ramping up Cleary took precautions to protect their staff and never asked for additional expenses due to these precautions.

Standard to all construction projects, changes and differing site conditions caused 6 change orders. All were handled quickly and professionally with clarity of contractor cost and requested markups. Throughout the project all problems that were encountered were all handled as a project team with the contractor, engineer, and owner. This allowed these problems to be handled quickly and without significant delays to the timeline.

Overall the project was completed on time, with minimal increase in project cost and to the Owner’s and Engineer’s satisfaction.

Would strongly recommend Cleary for future projects

This letter of reference is on behalf of Cleary Construction, Inc. and their recent work on the project referenced above. Smith Seckman Reid, Inc. (SSR) had the pleasure of working directly with Cleary on the Flat Creek Force Main project for Harpeth Valley Utilities District (HVUD) in Nashville, TN. This project comprised of the installation of approximately 3 miles of 24-inch force main along difficult terrain and was performed using Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) approach. SSR, HVUD and Cleary worked closely together during the design and construction phase to achieve a successful project. Their communication, insight and quality of work was exemplary on this project. Our experience was extremely positive and SSR would strongly recommend Cleary for future projects or to other clients in the surrounding area.

Able to overcome challenges

Cleary Construction, Inc. was awarded a contract for Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources in 2019 for the construction of 4,900 linear feet of 24″ diameter DIP gravity sewer with 60″ and 72″ diameter manholes along Shoal Creek in Lawrenceville, GA, for a contract price of $2.2M. With construction management handled very well by Mr. Taylor McMann, the contractor was able to overcome challenges with trench rock, bypass pumping, wetlands, stream crossings, existing sewer connections, and other construction issues along the way to finish the project on time and within budget. I look forward to seeing them on future projects.

Constant coordination throughout the process

It has been a pleasure working with Joe Cleary and Cleary Construction, Inc. over the course of the past couple years for the Jamestown Municipal Airport’s Runway Reconstruction and Taxiway Relocation project. The project itself was a major accomplishment for the airport and the City of Jamestown as it provided for a rehabilitated concrete runway and new partial parallel taxiway that will last the airport and it’s users for many years to come.

The project consisted of 5 inches of Portland cement concrete placed on top of the existing asphalt runway and the demolition of the two existing asphalt taxiways and construction of a new 5-inch thick concrete partial parallel taxiway. Due to the new taxiway’s location along an area with wetlands and a protected Water of the US, extra care was needed by Cleary Construction to properly excavate the area which contained large amounts of poor subgrade material, rebuild over 10 vertical feet of embankment for the proposed finished grade, and avoid the wetlands. Also required was the installation of runway and taxiway lighting, an electrical vault, and a major rehab of the storm drainage throughout the area.

Cleary Construction was able to complete the project in the allotted amount of time and kept constant coordination throughout the process. I look forward to working with Cleary Construction again in the future.

All CGW customers were able to remain in service for the entire duration

In April of 2022, Cleary Construction, Inc. (Cleary) successfully completed the Northwest Manifold Improvements project. The project started in December of 2021 and immediately met its first challenge, material delays stemming from supply chain disruptions. Cleary expeditiously communicated the situation to Clarksville Gas & Water (CGW). Their timeliness allowed the project team to coordinate a reasonable construction schedule and expedite critical materials, as necessary. Even with the industry wide supply chain disruptions, Cleary finished the project ahead of schedule and under the bid price.

The project included the replacement of dual 12-inch force mains with approximately 9400 linear feet (LF) of 24-inch polyvinyl chloride (PVC) force main, installation of an inline flow meter, as well as all associated valves and vaults. This force main, also referred to as the Northwest Manifold, carries the majority of wastewater flows from northwest Clarksville directly to CGW’s wastewater treatment plant (WWTP). It is a critical component of CGW’s sewer system and could not be taken out of service. Cleary successfully navigated this constraint by installing a bypass line that consisted of approximately 1500 linear feet (LF) of 18-inch high density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe. Additionally, connections to the existing force main were made with tapping sleeves and valves. All CGW customers were able to remain in service for the entire duration of the project.

The City of Clarksville’s rapid growth poses a myriad of challenges to existing infrastructure, especially CGW’s sewer system. This project effectively doubled the capacity of CGW’s sewer system in northwest Clarksville, allowing us to better serve
our existing customers and future development. It was one of the largest and most successful projects that CGW completed in 2022, and its success was attributable to the expertise, constant communication, and hard work provided by the entire Cleary Construction, Inc. team.

Cleary’s project manager (Allan Farris), assistant project manager (Jarret Pitcock), and superintendent (Jake Singer) displayed exemplary communication skills with not only myself and my team, but also the local residents affected by the construction. It was a pleasure working with them, they are true professionals and I look forward to working with them again in the future. I would confidently recommend them to anybody in the water and wastewater industry.

It is always a pleasure working with them

Cleary Construction, LLC completed construction of the Mundy Park Drainage Improvements Project in April 2023. Work performed included repairing a failing detention pond, erosion stabilization, and walking trail overlay/widening within the park. The repair of the detention pond was vital in the City’s efforts to mitigate flooding concerns in this part of town.

With this being the biggest stormwater project the City of Mt. Juliet has undertaken, Cleary Construction proved that they were capable of the job. They completed the job on budget, and other than unavoidable weather delays while working through the winter, on time. The success of this project was attributable to the expertise, communication, and hard work provided by the entire Cleary Construction team. The project manager for Cleary Construction, Jarret Pitcock, was available communication-wise whenever needed. This level of communication is vital in achieving success with a municipal project that helps elected leaders and citizens whenever questions arise, and status updates are needed. Jarret is a professional who also did a masterful job keeping City staff constantly updated throughout the project through completion.

Cleary Construction has done multiple projects in the City of Mt. Juliet, and it is always a pleasure working with them. They are true professionals, and I look forward to working with them again in the future.

Masterful job in meeting the project challenges

I would like to express to you our appreciation for making the referenced project a success for our client, Mallory Valley Utility District, and also for us. The project included approximately 14,800 LF of 24-inch and 4,400 LF of 12-inch ductile iron pipe plus 11 bores of various lengths and diameters totaling 2,350 LF. The project bid in September 2021 at a unit price bid cost of $12,488,496.25. Your project management team including Dan Bryant, Robbie Butler and Taylor McMann did a masterful job in meeting the project challenges, effectively communicating with all parties and overcoming construction hurdles when they did arise.

This project was especially challenging as it was routed through the heart of Cool Springs in Franklin, TN which is a highly urbanized area. No project of this magnitude goes without some changes and this one was no different. But when they did arise, your team dealt with them fairly and professionally and worked closely with us and the client to maintain the overall project schedule. Even with the change orders that were incurred, the project will still come in below the unit cost bid value. That is a testament to everyone’s hard work and cooperation.

I will also give a shout-out to your project superintendent, Chris Hammock. He kept the project on track and maintained a neat and orderly jobsite. Complaints were limited and for a project of this size and magnitude, he was a large reason for keeping all parties happy. Additionally, he always had a plan if field conditions dictated a need for change which made my job as the engineer easier knowing there was someone who did not simply pitch the problem back to us. I have enjoyed working with Cleary on this project and look forward to future opportunities to work with you and your team again.

Cleary Construction has strong leadership that reflects in the quality of work

I am honored to write a letter of recommendation for Cleary Construction. They recently completed a large pipeline project for us in Cumberland County, TN. This project consisted of installing approximately 98,000’ of 12” steel gas piping and almost 10,000’ of stream and roadway bores. Large portions of this project were in remote areas with difficult, rocky terrain. I was impressed with their planning and communication throughout the entire project. Cleary Construction was very responsive to any issues or concerns of MTNG and the local residents. They were able to complete the project ahead of schedule.

Cleary Construction has strong leadership that reflects in the quality of work and professionalism portrayed by all their employees. MTNG would highly recommend Cleary Construction for future projects.

Cleary Construction has truly become a welcome vendor

Cleary Construction Inc. recently completed the installation of approximately 4,463 linear feet of 24-inch ductile iron water main, and 270 linear feet of 12-inch ductile iron water main, for The City of Concord. Along with the main line installation, this
particular contract also included the installation of valves, fire hydrant assemblies, hydro stop installations, as well as residential service connections/reconnections and or service renewal. The project included working within a utility easement on private property and restoring the grounds, paving of asphalt driveways, and road patching, as well as concrete driveways and replacement of curb. These operations were performed on both residential and commercial properties. Cleary Construction did an excellent job on the project. Their site Superintendent was instrumental in working with residents/property owners, so as not to have our City personnel schedules interrupted. The project had a time constraint of 180 days. Because of the grit, determination, and integrity of Cleary Construction, and their personnel, this project was completed in less than the 180 day requirement. It is the hope of the City of Concord, that Cleary Construction will continue to partner with us in the future, as opportunities arise in the construction of future projects. Cleary Construction has truly become a welcome vendor in the City of Concord!

Cleary worked very safe and completed the project on time

I am the Project Manager, Louisville Water Company who worked very closely with Cleary Construction, Inc. during construction of Phase 3 for this total $27,000,000 project. Phase 3 included over $6,000,000 for construction. This phase included an 8,635 LF stretch of slipling 42″ welded steel carrier pipe through an existing 1920 vintage 48″ cast iron non lined pipe. The 48″ pipe require cleaning of tuberculation prior to pushing the new pipe through. This phase routed through a very busy traffic area and high-profile neighborhood.

Cleary Construction, Inc. did a very good job of meeting installation standards per bid specifications. They worked very closely with our Communication team for notifying commuters and residents of construction progress. Cleary worked very safe and completed the project on time.

I feel Cleary Construction exceeded expectation in their product delivery, safety, communication and met the completion deadline.

Project Manager, Louisville Water Company

They have a great reputation

Recently, Cleary Construction, Inc. has completed the successful rehabilitation of a 6” steel natural gas main that hangs on the southern parapet of the bridge crossing the “Little West Fork” of the Red River on Peachers Mill Road, approximately 2,200 feet north of the intersection of Peachers Mill Road and S.R. 374 in Clarksville, Tn. This project included the full pre-inspection of the existing pipeline with an associated report, surface preparation of the entire existing gas line to prepare said line for the new coating application (this was done with zero sandblasting due to traffic conflicts), application of the new Carboline Carbomastic 615 base coating witah Carboline 134 UV topcoat, full post-inspection of new coating with an associated report, and replacement of 24, side anchored, LB&A pipeline hangers on the southern parapet of the bridge. This was all done while leaving 1 of the 2 northbound lanes of the bridge open to traffic flow, as well as both of the 2 southbound lanes.

From the bid phase, through the post-bid/pre-contract phase, and ultimately the construction phase, it was clear that Cleary Construction, Inc. was an incredibly knowledgeable company that placed a ton of emphasis on doing nothing short of quality work. Their project managers and superintendents alike had great communication skills with not only myself, but my inspectors in the field, and I never once felt like I was unsure about what phase of the project they were on or what exactly was going on in the field. They approached a potentially very dangerous and technically challenging project with a boat load of common sense and attention to detail which ultimately led to an incredibly safe work environment that turned out and absolutely phenomenal end product.

This was the 2nd project Cleary Construction has completed for the City of Clarksville, Natural Gas Department. They have had a great reputation with our water and sewer departments for quite some time, so it has been great to confirm that their quality work transcends their water and sewer departments into their gas department. It has been a pleasure working with Cleary Construction on these projects, and I look forward to working with them in the future.

Each project was completed on time

I am writing this letter to state my recommendation for Cleary Construction Inc. for any water or wastewater construction projects. We have worked with Cleary on multiple gravity sewer projects. Each project was completed on time, all tests were successfully passed, and the project sites were cleaned up well.

One project for Madison Utilities (Alabama) included over 10,000’ of 48” and 42” gravity sewer. The sewer was up to 22’ deep and utilized Hobas centrifugally cast, fiberglass-reinforced, polymer mortar pipe. This was our first project with this type of pipe and the manufacturer stressed the importance of proper backfill to prevent the pipe from deflecting. Cleary purchased a custom straddle wheel compactor to ensure proper compaction of the stone backfill. All mandrel tests passed without any issues leading to a successful project.

We look forward to working with Cleary Construction again in the future.

I would recommend them to anybody for natural gas work

In the fall of 2020, Cleary Construction, Inc. completed the successful replacement of a 6” steel natural gas main hanging underneath the North 2nd Street bridge (Lewis Memorial Bridge) which crosses the Red River, approximately 900 LF northwest of the intersection of N. 2nd Street and Kraft Street in Clarksville, Tn. This was one of the most high-profile, and successful projects for the City of Clarksville, Gas Department in 2020 thanks to the expertise, out-of-the box thinking, and constant fluid coordination provided by the entire Cleary Construction, Inc. team.

This project included the replacement of approximately 400 LF of 6” steel gas main which was hanging directly under center of an approximately 92 LF wide bridge. The job required removal of the existing 6” steel gas main and all associated pipe hangers and installation of a new 6” steel gas main with new pipe hangers. It also included the installation of 6” steel gas main installation on either side of the bridge both by trenched and HDD method along with three 6” steel hot taps and stops. The most impressive part of this project was the installation and removal plans Cleary developed. A plan that allowed us to remove 400 LF of gas main under the center of the bridge and install 400 LF of new gas main under a separate location under the bridge, all while working during normal business hours and not stopping traffic for one second.

During design, it was envisioned that our contractor would use a snoop truck or a “Hydra Platform” to access the underside of the bridge and ultimately the existing and new gas main. After the project was awarded to Cleary Construction, Inc., conversation was immediately opened between Cleary’s Project Manager (Allan Farris), Cleary’s job superintendent (Jeremy Gray), and our Clarksville Gas team. Through a combination of on-site visits and discussions between Cleary Construction & Safety and the Clarksville Gas team, along with coordination with TDOT Structures Department, Cleary proposed constructing a temporary construction platform made of OSHA approved 2”x12”s spanning between the existing steel bridge girders; resting on the girder flanges and anchored in place with longitudinally running 2”x4”x8’ boards that “tied” the 2”x12”s together. This created a completely stable and continuous working platform on which Cleary crews could safely remove and install gas pipeline hangers and perform other functions needed during construction. Along with this idea, Cleary also constructed a custom pipe lifting platform that came outfitted with permanent, height adjustable, pipe rollers and safety handrails, built specifically for use with an extended boom forklift. This custom piece of equipment allowed Cleary to safely lift 20’ joints of 6” steel pipe off the ground in order to line the pipe up with the already installed new pipeline rollers. Once in line, the built in rollers on the pipe lifting platform allowed a section of pipe to be pulled seamlessly off of the platform and on to the newly installed hangers. Once the first joint was in place, Cleary could lower back to ground level, set a new joint of pipe on the platform, and raise the new joint back up to be welded in-line with the first joint. As joints of pipe were added, the completed pipeline was pulled into

The construction crews they sent to do the work were always ready for the days challenges and kept in good communication with
LTRWC. There were a few things that had to change along the way, just like all projects, but Cleary always had a solution and kept moving forward. Very few change orders were required for the 20 mile long project and it was completed on time. If I were to do it over again I would strongly recommend Cleary Construction for the job.

Tyler Hayes

Assistant Gas Manager, City of Clarksville

Cleary always had a solution and kept moving forward

Logan/Todd Regional Water Commission contracted with the City of Springfield, Tennessee to supply 2.3MGD of treated water and they also wanted the capacity to buy more in the future. For this to happen LTRWC had to build a new high service pump station at Guthrie, KY, construct a 2 MG storage tank and booster station in Adams, TN, and construct a 24inch ductile iron transmission pipeline around twenty miles long.

Cleary Construction bid and received the pipeline contract. The pipeline travels thru two states, three counties and four cities while
also crossing the Red River. The funding for this project was a loan from USDA Rural Development, which requires lots of oversight from
multiple agencies. Cleary’s management team did lots of planning and laid out a very detailed attack plan from the start of the project.

In each project, Cleary has provided quality workmanship

Over the 25 year life of McGhee Engineering, we have had the opportunity to work with Cleary Construction, Inc. on many occasions. In each project, Cleary has provided quality workmanship, excellent professionalism, and timely work.

Most recently, our firm has worked with Cleary on a portion of the $23M Springfield Water Supply Project for the Logan Todd Regional Water Commission (KY). In May 2018, a Contract was let for the installation of nearly 20 miles of 24-inch DIP between the City of Guthrie, Kentucky and the City of Springfield, TN. Cleary Construction was the qualified low bidder, and the Commission awarded the nearly $1 OM contract to Cleary.

Construction on the project began in August 2018, and Cleary substantially completed their work within a year’s time. Both Logan Todd Regional Water and McGhee Engineering have been pleased with Cleary’s performance, and we’ve had no complaints in their character of work and their attention to issues as typically arises in such work. Therefore, we have no reservations in recommending Cleary to others, and we look forward to working with them in future projects.

Worked on several projects in the last 10 years

Cleary Construction, Inc. has work with GRW Engineers, Inc. on several projects in the last 10 years. Those projects have been varied in scope, from large diameter water lines, to gravity sewer collection lines, sewer force mains, pump stations, water line replacement, etc. We have always been very pleased with their work, progress schedule and cleanup at the end.

I was the design engineer and project manager for the “Bledsoe County Correctional Facility Wastewater Infrastructure Improvements” (SBC 142/013-02-2004-18). This project was a State of Tennessee project for the Department of Corrections. The project consisted of the installation of gravity sewers for a new prison complex built adjacent to an existing facility. The gravity lines transported the flow from the new complex and the existing facility to a new wastewater treatment plant (built by others). In addition to the gravity sewer lines (2,745 feet of 8 & 10 inch), a new 180 GPM pump station, mechanical bar screen/structure was constructed at a third site to eliminate an old treatment plant. The new pump station transported the flow through over 8,000 feet of 6- inch force main to the new gravity sewer that they installed. In addition to the 6- inch force main, they installed fiber optics (paralleling the force main and gravity sewer) from the new pump station to the new prison complex for communications at the new WWTP.

The project was awarded in February 9, 2011 for $959,500 and completed on June 8, 2012. At the request of the Owner Cleary installed a temporary pump station at the new complex so that the service lines could be tested. This was done by change order and increased the final project cost to $967,916. There were no other change orders on the project.

If you have any questions concerning this letter, please feel free to call.

Kenvirons and Cleary have a lengthy history of work together…

Kenvirons, Inc., has worked very successfully with Cleary Construction on a varierty of water and wastewater projects over the past several years. These projects have included water distribution lines, booster stations, sewer lines, sewer lift stations, and most recently, the rehabilitation and upgrades to the Russell County Regional WWTP in Jamestown, Kentucky for Contract 1 ($1.686,060.00), and Contract 2 ($615,000.00). Change orders totaling $164,374.00 were added at the Owner’s request for a total contract value with Cleary Construction of $2,465,424.00 for the project.

I personally was the engineer of record and project manager for the wastewater treatment plant rehabilitation and renovations, which included a new headworks facility, structural rehabilitation of aeration basins, replacement of RAS and WAS pumps and valves, electrical and power distribution improvements, a new sludge de-watering press, the addition of surface aerators, upgrading the disinfection system, renovating the disinfection storage building, modification of a number of existing plant pumping and yard piping systems, and replacement of the final clarifier works. Cleary was very good to work with through the course of the project, and did a very nice job with the various project components, and with the additional items requested by the Owner prior to project completion. As with all rehab and renovation projects, there were a few minor glitches and warranty items to be dealth with, but the Cleary folks were responsive and helpful every step of the way.

Kenvirons and Cleary have a lengthy history of work together, and I think I speak for everyone in the company when I say that we look forward to working with Cleary when they are the successful bidders on our projects. If you have any questions, or would like any additional information, please feel free to contact me at your convenience.

The Cleary plan saved DWQ both time and construction costs.

Cleary Construction, Inc .. , Tompkinsville, KY (Cleary) has provided construction services to the municipal water and sewer sectors for over 30 years. With respect to the Lexington Fayette Urban County Government (LFUCG) and through its Division of Water Quality (DWQ), Cleary most recently completed construction of the East Lake Trunk Sewer – a required project for LFUCG’s federal Consent Decree.

The East Lake Trunk Sewer project posed a number of challenges for DWQ and Cleary including

  • A restricted construction corridor
  • A construction corridor bounded on one side by one of Lexington’s drinking water reservoirs and on the opposite side by residences
  • A narrow greenspace with protected trees
    A sensitive wildlife sanctuary along the water’s edge
  • Connection of the East Lake Trunk to an existing 48-in sewershed interceptor, just feet from the reservoir, but without the benefit of a connecting manhole
  • Bypass pumping requirements requiring that piping go over, under, or around the reservoir
  • Construction depths to 20 feet in solid rock

With the construction awarded under the traditional, three-party Design/Bid/Build construction delivery methodology, Cleary could have taken a straightforward approach for construction per the conformed contract documents resulting in change order requests, construction delays, and a citizenry upset with disturbance of a natural habitat deemed theirs. But Cleary initiated an open and collaborative approach with DWQ and its Engineer of Record (EOR) to minimize both construction impacts and construction delays.

  • Recognizing potential schedule delays and environmental impacts, Cleary partnered with DWQ and EOR to develop an innovative bypass pumping plan that eliminated the need for bypass pumping over, under or around the reservoir. The Cleary plan saved DWQ both time and construction costs.
  • With the specified bypass pump plan modified, Cleary again partnered with DWQ and EOR to develop a plan not previously used by DWQ for connecting large diameter trunk sewers. The change, approved by DWQ and EOR, resulted in savings for both costs and time.
  • Impacts to the wildlife and wildlife habitat within the construction corridor were of great concern to area residents and elected officials. With rock removal methodology at the discretion of the contractor but to be approved by both DWQ and EOR, Cleary integrated a combination of digging and trenching that minimized excavation, minimized storage and management of spoil material in the sensitive construction area, and eliminated fracturing of the underground rock strata less than 50 feet from the water impoundment. The result saved DWQ construction dollars and construction time, and protected the integrity of the reservoir.
  • Subsequent to completion of the East Lake Trunk, DWQ sought Cleary’s input on construction materials and techniques for another Consent Decree project – one that was not awarded to Cleary based upon low bid. The input proved key in DWQ’s decision-making process.

Cleary has remained responsive to DWQ’s needs and questions and always willing to discuss and expand upon design and technical construction issues when called upon. It is with pleasure that I recommend Cleary Construction, Inc. for professional services related to construction of water and wastewater systems.

Cleary Construction handled the project very professionally

In early 2017, the Glasgow Water Company (GWC) completed phase three of a four-phase interceptor sewer improvement project. This project had various construction challenges due to the fact that much of it went through a densely populated, historic residential neighborhood. Highlights of the construction project are as follows:

  • Installation of approximately 14,400 linear feet of 42-inch, 36-inch, and 30-inch gravity sewer,
  • three major road bores,
  • over 2,100 linear feet of collector sewer installation
  • approximately 2,400 linear feet of 16-inch and 12-inch water line relocation.

During the procurement process of the project, Cleary Construction submitted the lowest bid and was awarded the construction contract. The project was originally bid with an 18-month (540 days) construction schedule. However, Cleary proposed a work plan that included a much more aggressive 9-month construction schedule. After a thorough review, GWC approved the work plan with the expedited construction schedule. Once construction began, Cleary Construction had the interceptor sewer installed, tested and in service in five months; the water line relocation was completed three months later. Apart from final cleanup, the project was completed in only 8 months.

Cleary Construction handled the project very professionally and was responsive to the concerns of the GWC as well as those of local residents. Due to their professionalism, quality of work, and ability to tackle such a large project with such effectiveness, the GWC would highly recommend Cleary Construction for future projects.

Clint Harbison

P.E. Engineering Manager , Glasgow Water Company (GWC)

Completed the work in about half the time

The project encompassed the installation of over 13,000 linear feet of large diameter sanitary sewer (36” and 42” DIP) along with numerous smaller diameter sewer line installations. It also included over 1,200 linear feet of water line installation. Cleary Construction was the contractor on the project and worked with GWC and CCI to provide a final product that met the needs of GWC.

GWC and CCI established the construction time of 540 days (about 18 months) to substantial completion during the bidding process of the project. Cleary won the project and completed the work in about half the time stated in the contract. Cleary did a great job in focusing on this project and staying with it until it was completed ahead of time.
