Kelly Company, Inc.PO Box 66883450 Concord RoadLafayette, IN 47903-6688Dear Ms. Spencer;Id like to provide you with comments on Tom Morlans performance as Project Manager for the third phase ofthe renovation of the Roland G. Parrish Library of Management and Economics, located in the Krannert buildingat Purdue University. First, I want to tell you the basis of my comments. My role in this project is administrativeoversight on behalf of the Dean of Libraries, Jim Mullins. In that role, Ive been aware ofToms work throughemail discussions on which I was copied, visits to the job site, and through reports from Brad Heiss, LibrariesFacilities Coordinator, who reports to me. Brad and his assistant Dale White have participated in most of theconstruction progress meetings and have interacted with Tom on numerous occasions to provide informationand assist in problem solving. In preparing this letter, I consulted with Brad and Dale, and drew upon my ownobservations of and interactions with Tom in several construction progress meetings in which I participated, aswell as my evaluation of the results of the work of J. R. Kelly on our project.Throughout the project, Toms performance has been outstanding. He was responsive, replying rapidly toemails 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 intheir areas. When Tom led the construction progress meetings, he kept the group focused and on track, andstuck to the time schedule. Brad observed that when a side issue was raised at a meeting, Tom would pleasantlyask that the individual(s) concerned with the topic get together with him after the meeting to discuss andaddress 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 thatthey 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 thePurdue 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 Purdue University Libraries Administration • 504 W.

  • 6. fulfill our vision for the space. In these cases and others, the successful resolution of the challenges owes a lotto Toms knowledge and judgment, his interpersonal skills, and his calm approach of sticking to the facts, ratherthan 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 otherprojects, and we join in the high regard in which your company and your employees are held on campus. TomMorlan exemplifies what J. R. Kelly is all about. I very much appreciate his contributions to this project and hopeto see him on another Libraries project in future. If you have not yet done so, I hope that you will visit theParrish Library, especially on a weekday evening when it is filled with students. We have created a state of theart learning space for Purdue students and Tom has been a key factor in this creation.Sincerely,Nancy S.

Academic Technologies Information Technology at Purdue (ITaP)Betsy SpencerJR Kelly Company, Inc.PO Box 66883450 Concord RoadLafayette, IN 47903-6688October 24, 2011Dear Betsy:I would like to thank JR Kelly Co on the $2 million Math Science Data Center Renovation project. Due to natureof the federal funding, this project had an extremely aggressive schedule which was met through the efforts of JRKelly and its subcontractors. Tom Morlan, as project manager, was very skilled in keeping everyone informed ofprogress and resolved issues in a timely manner. The project was also executed in such a manner that the researchcomputing infrastructure was allowed to remain operational – saving researchers millions of hours ofcomputational time on projects ranging from new treatments for cancer to developing new methods for predictingsevere weather. I enjoyed working with JR Kelly and look forward to working with this group again in the future.Sincerely,John P. Campbell, Ph.D.Associate Vice President of Academic TechnologiesInformation Technology at Purdue (ITaP)
  • 8. November 30, 2011 Ms. Betsy Spencer JR Kelly Company, Inc. 3450 Concord Road Lafayette, IN 47903-6688 RE: Purdue University Mackey Arena Complex Design Releases #1 and #6 Dear Betsy: 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.

  • 9. December 1, 2011Betsy SpencerJR Kelly Company, Inc.PO Box 66883450 Concord RoadLafayette, Indiana 47903RE: Letter of RecommendationDear Ms. Spencer:I would like to take this moment to thank JR Kelly for the excellent workperformed on the Mackey Arena Renovation at Purdue University. Theattention to detail and coordination by your entire crew has been superb.Their willingness to work through unique construction techniques, complicatedpaving patterns, multiple material interactions, and several field adjustments isgreatly appreciated. It is this effort that has made this project shine.I specifically want to thank Tom Morlan and Dave Britton for theircommitment to excellence. Combining the complexity of the design with astrict schedule, multiple phases of construction, and continual delays fromother on-site contractors has been a great challenge. They have alwaysmaintained a high level of professionalism and integrity, while never losing siteof the need to provide a quality finished product.I will be honest and tell you I, initially, wanted a different contractor for thisproject; however, I quickly realized the better contractor earned the job. Withevery phone call, site visit, and submittal received over the past 18 months, Ihave been very relieved JR Kelly has been a part of this process. You have allhelped make our vision a beautiful reality.Sincerely,Alyssa P. PrazeauManaging Partner
