WHAT AST CLIENTS ARE SAYING

I……100% agree with Kyle, your team is awesome to work with and look forward to our future together!!

—MIKE CAMPBELL, DESIGN DIRECTOR / DBS GROUP

The steel supplier and erector feel that this project was the best project they have ever done in terms of coordination, speed, and accuracy of the steel detailing and fit-up. They attributed this to AST’s BIM process, virtual review, and modeling things accurately from the beginning of the process.

—JOE HARRIS, SUPERINTENDENT / WEITZ COMPANY

Collaboration and design process flowed quickly and thoroughly on our 345kV project. We look forward to working alongside them again.

—MR. SCOTT TEETERS / DAYTON POWER & LIGHT

AST’s level of service is second to none. From initial project conception until project completion, their team is focused on delivering the solution that has the Client’s end goals in mind.
