TestimonialsWhat our Clients Say About Us
Today Ben Berra and Logan Zugay led a field visit to a bog turtle telemetry site. The field view was a chance for FHWA and PennDOT to learn how a telemetry project is planned and executed and to learn about the bog turtle.
I’m writing to let you know that Ben and Logan did an excellent job today. They were careful of the species while giving the attendees a chance to be close and participate. Both displayed a high degree of knowledge and professionalism. They were able to answer all the questions and were especially adept at explaining what is known and what is not known about bog turtles in general and this population in particular. They were able to explain in detail why this wetland supports such a dense population and how it is influenced by local development and our project. I especially appreciated their ability to explain to FHWA why this study is being done over the time period it is being done even though it is affecting the project completion.
It isn’t easy to bare your practice and process to those who determine what projects you’re awarded but they did so without hesitation. This was done with confidence for good reason – the protocol was solid. They are obtaining the necessary data while being considerate of the property owners, the agencies, and more importantly, the species. Their practice showed a carefully developed plan that minimizes repeated impact on the sample population.
Both FHWA and PennDOT were thoroughly impressed. I was too!

I can always count on Skelly and Loy to provide suggestions,
answers, and solutions to problems that arise. Working
for the government, cost and budget control is a big issue.
Skelly and Loy has done a great job in ensuring that jobs
are done cost-effectively, within budget, and safely.
These are just a few of the reasons that we go back to
Skelly and Loy and recommend them to others.

to our needs, often from his cell phone in the field.
He works tirelessly to keep the project moving forward.
His knowledge of FGM and regulatory agencies is superior.
His staff is also excellent and responsive as well.

What Skelly and Loy has developed with Team Pennsylvania
Foundation puts the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania at the
forefront of economic development. Now, when parties are
interested in selecting a site where they can conduct
business, with just the click of a mouse, the BRN provides
them with invaluable statewide data. This significantly
increases the likelihood that a Pennsylvania site will
make their shortlist.

The Web-based uniform and equipment ordering system

It has been a rare occasion in my working career
when I have had the pleasure of working with such a
fine, professional staff as employed by your firm. The
efforts of your employees in the preparation of the
Kentucky mining permit application were tremendous and
the final work product was of the highest standards
of technical excellence. Given that impending filing
deadlines created extreme demands on everyones
time, I would like to personally thank all those involved
for their dedication to the effort.
Russ Willard, Mining Engineer
Your advice and work product were just what we needed:
they were expert, they were efficiently crafted, and
they were delivered with a high degree of sensitivity
to the needs (and whims) of your client. We are grateful
for your help and look forward to working with you again
Thank you again for your efforts.

Deann S. Metro, P.E. Senior Engineering Project Manager Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission
I would just like to thank you for the service performed on my Cromaglass wastewater treatment system in Milford, Pennsylvania. The system has been perfect since the repair.
This note is to advise you of the professionalism and caring by your service technician, John Nye. He called me several times to verify charges for travel and the total estimate of the job. As I am not at this house all week, he needed to perform his job both inside and outside, and with no supervision. His demeanor on the telephone put my mind at ease.
Once again, thank you, and I am looking forward to other opportunities to use your company.
We just wanted to take this time to thank you for the prompt, courteous service you provided in helping us to resolve our problem with our underground storage tank. Skelly and Loy did an excellent job. Staff was very professional and did a great job answering our many questions and offering possible solutions to our problem. We were very happy with the services provided and would surely solicit the help of Skelly and Loy on any future projects we may encounter.
