Dear Ms. Spencer;
I'd like to provide you with comments on Tom Morlan's performance as Project Manager for the third phase of
the renovation of the Roland G. Parrish Library of Management and Economics, located in the Krannert building
at Purdue University. First, I want to tell you the basis of my comments. My role in this project is administrative
oversight on behalf of the Dean of Libraries, Jim Mullins. In that role, I've been aware ofTom's work through
email discussions on which I was copied, visits to the job site, and through reports from Brad Heiss, Libraries
Facilities Coordinator, who reports to me. Brad and his assistant Dale White have participated in most of the
construction progress meetings and have interacted with Tom on numerous occasions to provide information
and assist in problem solving. In preparing this letter, I consulted with Brad and Dale, and drew upon my own
observations of and interactions with Tom in several construction progress meetings in which I participated, as
well as my evaluation of the results of the work of J. R. Kelly on our project.
Throughout the project, Tom's performance has been outstanding. He was responsive, replying rapidly to
emails and promptly addressing whatever question or concern was raised. He was always on top of the project,
well-versed on all aspects and events, and in touch with J. R. Kelly employees and subs regarding progress in
their areas. When Tom led the construction progress meetings, he kept the group focused and on track, and
stuck to the time schedule. Brad observed that when a side issue was raised at a meeting, Tom would pleasantly
ask that the individual(s) concerned with the topic get together with him after the meeting to discuss and
address the issue. He provided informative meeting notes and the project Gantt chart was always up-to-date.
Watching Tom interact with Chris Burke, Purdue project manager Jim Naville, and others, it was clear to me that
they not only respected him and he respected them, but also that they enjoyed working together.
As you probably know, the Parrish Library renovation presented a number of challenges, in part due to the
Purdue Libraries' selection design elements and finishes (such as the digital wall covering and unusual flooring)
which had not yet been tried and tested on campus, and which necessitated some changes to make the project

fulfill our vision for the space. In these cases and others, the successful resolution of the challenges owes a lot
to Tom's knowledge and judgment, his interpersonal skills, and his calm approach of sticking to the facts, rather
than pointing fingers, as a way of reaching a solution.
We in Purdue Libraries have several earlier, very positive, experiences with other 1. R. Kelly staff on other
projects, and we join in the high regard in which your company and your employees are held on campus. Tom
Morlan exemplifies what J. R. Kelly is all about. I very much appreciate his contributions to this project and hope
to see him on another Libraries project in future. If you have not yet done so, I hope that you will visit the
Parrish Library, especially on a weekday evening when it is filled with students. We have created a state of the
art learning space for Purdue students and Tom has been a key factor in this creation.

I would like to thank JR Kelly Co on the $2 million Math Science Data Center Renovation project. Due to nature
of the federal funding, this project had an extremely aggressive schedule which was met through the efforts of JR
Kelly and its subcontractors. Tom Morlan, as project manager, was very skilled in keeping everyone informed of
progress and resolved issues in a timely manner. The project was also executed in such a manner that the research
computing infrastructure was allowed to remain operational – saving researchers millions of hours of
computational time on projects ranging from new treatments for cancer to developing new methods for predicting
severe weather. I enjoyed working with JR Kelly and look forward to working with this group again in the future.

RE: Purdue University Mackey Arena Complex
Design Releases #1 and #6
Over the course of the last three years we have embarked on a journey with Purdue University
Athletics to execute their $99.5 Million expansion and renovation of Mackey Arena. The schedule
was established as a five-phase renovation with eighteen different turnover milestones to facilitate
continuous occupancy throughout the project and ensure successful navigation of all eighteen athletic
seasons each academic year.
It is my pleasure to write this letter in recognition of the outstanding effort put forth by JR Kelly’s
Project Managers, Field Superintendents, and ultimately the leadership spearheaded by yourself, Rob,
and Jeff Mutzl. In particular I want to acknowledge the challenge this past off-season presented to
Tom Morlan and Dave Britton. While your successful completion of the $3.5 Million football fields
in August of 2009 was essential to establishing positive momentum for the seventeen successive
turnover milestones, completing the $2.5 Million Hardscape Package this fall was perhaps the single
most challenging aspect of this project.
With an ever expanding building, JR Kelly’s team had to pace the work not only in an effort to ensure
quality but just as importantly for timely completion of Phases 2, 3, and 4. To further complicate
matters, within each phase, as work was being completed immediately adjacent to both Mackey Arena
and IAF, temporary means of egress for safe passage by as many as 15,000 patrons visiting Mackey
Arena had to be accommodated from all exits at all times. This in addition to accommodating that
access through your work area of hundreds of contractors each day as work inside the building was
being completed concurrently. The unique combination of hardscape materials, significant grade
changes from north to south, and key exterior sculptures created for an amazing challenge that
thankfully Tom and Dave working in collaboration with our team delivered with immense success.
While there were serious challenges that required a total team effort on the part of everyone involved,
the successful grand opening of Mackey Arena could not have been accomplished on 11.11.2011
without the commitment and dedication of JR Kelly Company. I sincerely thank you and the entire
team for your outstanding contribution and can’t wait to work with you again in the very near future.

RE: Letter of Recommendation
Dear Ms. Spencer:
I would like to take this moment to thank JR Kelly for the excellent work
performed on the Mackey Arena Renovation at Purdue University. The
attention to detail and coordination by your entire crew has been superb.
Their willingness to work through unique construction techniques, complicated
paving patterns, multiple material interactions, and several field adjustments is
greatly appreciated. It is this effort that has made this project shine.
I specifically want to thank Tom Morlan and Dave Britton for their
commitment to excellence. Combining the complexity of the design with a
strict schedule, multiple phases of construction, and continual delays from
other on-site contractors has been a great challenge. They have always
maintained a high level of professionalism and integrity, while never losing site
of the need to provide a quality finished product.
I will be honest and tell you I, initially, wanted a different contractor for this
project; however, I quickly realized the better contractor earned the job. With
every phone call, site visit, and submittal received over the past 18 months, I
have been very relieved JR Kelly has been a part of this process. You have all
helped make our vision a beautiful reality.
