Rain for Rent’s solution combined with a joint Portadam and Rain for Rent implementation allowed for an on-time project completion under extremely difficult site conditions.”
According to Brent Hunt, Skanska project manager for the Huguenot River Bridge Reconstruction project, “The effort and expertise of Portadam and Rain for Rent was an important factor in helping us complete this project despite challenging environmental conditions.”
