OUR STORY

Who We Are

From the outset in April of 1994, Ella’s vision was to fearlessly apply six core values to fulfilling a role in the construction industry. In holding true to those values, we have been fortunate to develop long term relationships based on mutual trust and respect with not only clients, but also the inspection authorities who govern our work. More importantly, these values define our relationships with our vendors and team members, on whom we depend on to honor the promises we make. Consistency in delivering on those promises has led to our being part of the forces involved in building such high-profile projects as the AT&T Center, the Toyota Motor Manufacturing Texas plant, the JW Marriott Hill Country Resort at the TPC, and multiple Microsoft Data Centers. Never resting on our laurels, we strive to improve every day.

YES SIR

  • Yes - Our first response
  • Excellence - Good enough never is
  • Service - Our opportunity
  • Safety - Our first priority.
  • Integrity - Our benchmark
  • Respect - For ALL

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

SAFETY

An Attitude Rooted In Experience

At the age of 17, Ward witnessed a trench fatality and the senselessness of it took hold. There is absolutely nothing worth doing if it is not done safely. Planning the work is essential to any safety program, but it is when things change in the field that a culture of safety must be the inviolable standard. Every team member has the right to a safe work environment and to be equipped with PPE required by the task assigned them. To that end, every team member has the authority to stop the work without fear of retribution. Our formal pursuit of safety involves the following:

    Training Provided

  • OSHA 30 Training for Foreman
  • OSHA 10 for Crew
  • Annual CPR & First Aid
  • Trench Safety
  • Fall Protection
  • Confined Space Entry
  • Air Quality Monitoring

    Protocols Followed

  • Start of Shift Safety Huddle
  • Daily AHA/JHA
  • Daily Equipment Checklist
  • Daily Pre-Excavation Checklist
  • Weekly Toolbox Talks
  • Monthly Mandatory Annual Topic
  • Quarterly Safety Stand Down

Encompassing conveyance, detention and filtration, these systems affect the long-term health of a developed site more than any other. They also offer the most opportunity to be creative, whether it be from the perspective of cost impact or solution selection. Our years of experience afford us the knowledge to be a valuable asset to the development team, from site selection through design and to final installation.
