1.23.15  SWANK MILLING FEATURED PROJECT

              In October of 2014 Swank Construction Company New England Milling Division worked on the West Springfield MA. tunnel project for AETNA Bridge Co. This specialized high profile concrete milling job was preformed by foreman Mike Loughner and his crew.  At the beginning of job the depth of the concrete cut was suppose to be 6 inches. As the guys removed layer after layer of this tough New England concrete it was determined by the on-site engineer that in some spots the cut would be as much as 14" and on average 10". Swank Construction was up to the challenge. Not only did Mike and crew reach all depths necessary but did it on time.  That allowed AETNA to stay on their extremely tight time frame.  This spring the Swank Construction Company will be milling the North side of the tunnel and there is no doubt the same results will be reached. Once again showing Swank Construction Company is the industry leader in concrete milling.
