The contractor had to demonstrate (prove) the ability & resource commitment to accomplish their job in record time, as anyone who has seen the show knows that there is not much time to finish. We are very gratified to say Millard Sprinkler met & exceeded all of the requirements & was selected as the Sprinkler Company for the project.
