“The project to replace the entire Goldstrike Roaster Propane Distribution system underground was completed 10/4/2012.  The roaster is now running on the new system without issue.  The successful completion of the project is in large part due to the exceptional efforts of Savage and Son, Inc, a Mechanical Contractor out of Reno, NV.  Savage and Son, Inc. was the lead contractor on the job. This large rebuild of our propane system was the first opportunity for Savage and Son to work at the mine site.  I found them to be extremely easy to work with.  The original scope of the project was modified several times in the field requiring rapid adjustments to the plan and the overall schedule.  In all cases, these adjustments moved forward without issue.  The project was completed under budget, ahead of schedule, and most importantly, without any accidents, incidents or injuries.”.

“My favorite story to tell is a case of creative thinking which saved a tremendous amount of installation and operation cost, plus eliminated future maintenance cost and labor.

A newly created mechanical room adjacent to our steam plant required cooling. The mechanical contractor on the renovation project proposed installing a condensing unit outdoors, refrigerant lines, and an evaporator in the space –

Cost: $10,000.00.A representative of Savage & Son saw the existing system for providing combustion air to the steam boilers and simply tapped into that duct system, had a penetration made into the mechanical room and achieved the needed cooling with no moving parts. Cost: $5,000.00. An added benefit is the combustion air is pre-heated by passing through the mechanical room, thus making the boilers more energy efficient.

On almost any construction project there are unknowns, especially on a re-model project. Any hiccup that occurred in our many renovation collaborations with Savage & Son were handled with competence and confidence – never any “finger-pointing” – Savage simply made the corrections at no additional cost to the owners.”Don Scholler
