"Mr. Randall Tedder replaced two (2) existing boat launching facilities for Indian River County in 1999. One launching facility is located in a Public Park with 29 camp sites as well as having public access; the other launching facility is on the Indian River and receives a tremendous amount of launching traffic. Both launching facilities have performed flawlessly under extreme traffic conditions. Mr. Tedder has made yearly inspections and calls periodically to check on the launching facilities. Indian River County recommends the use of the Tedder Boat Ramp system for your boat launching facility needs."
--James E."Chip"Boyette, Engineering Technician Indian River County, FL

"In 1998, we added two ramp slips to the North Causeway Island boat ramp and in 2000 we had our slips at River Park Marina completely replaced. Both times using the pre-formed, pre-stressed ramp sections. Just wanted to let you know that we have had nothing but compliments concerning your product and work. The deep groves on the ramp and apron has provided for more traction and the length of the ramp allows for a decreased slow. Everything is working great.."
--Doug McLam, Project Manager West St. Lucie County, FL

"Randall G. Tedder Construction Company has installed nine pre-stress boat ramp systems for Marion County parks Department. The first pre-stress boat ramp system was installed in 1985 and to date has required little or no maintenance work. The pre-stress system has proven to be far superior than any other type of boat ramp system tried in the past. (Pre-cast or poured in place)."
--Don Hawkins, Park Supervisor Marion County, FL

"Mr. Tedder has been engaged by Marion County for several construction projects including installation of a number ofboat ramps and docking facilities. On each occasionthe county has been very satisfied with the results of the projects undertaken."
