We like to think we’ve seen it all at RamJack. And for the most part, we have. After decades in business, we’ve encountered just about every foundation problem or project you can have. We’ve also completed projects at all different types of residential and commercial properties – from historic buildings to Sea World to vintage lake houses and cabins across the country. But setting up an intricate art installation outside of a 106-year-old building? That was a new one even for us. Last summer, RamJack was contracted to help install “Reflecting Motion” outside of Kansas City’s historic Union Station. The installation, created by artist Patrick Shearn and his Poetic Kinetics team, was made up of seventy-five thousand reflective strips of holographic film. Each of these were hung from small wires connected to a RamJack anchoring system so that the strips appeared to float freely in the wind. Of course, Ram Jack’s helical anchors came in handy to keep this floating display in place. A RamJack crew kicked off the sky sculpture’s installation by installing a number of these anchors, before handing the reigns over to a rigging company to connect the installation to wires. Just like how the millions of pounds of limestone and granite that built Union Station in 1914 came from places across the U.S., all of the steel installed by RamJack to help hold up the art project – every RamJack project, for that matter – was American. For the RamJack crew working on this project, a major focus was minimizing their impact on the grounds and traffic. After all, thousands of people visit Union Station each day; keeping them out of harm’s way and leaving no trace of their work after the installation came down were hugely important. Another hurdle for this RamJack crew was the timing of the project. While it’s not uncommon for RamJack to be sharing a space with other contractors and work crews, on this particular mission they had to coordinate with the artist, construction riggers, the engineer and Union Station itself – all in a short time frame. When complete, the oblong-shaped looked like a river suspended in the air during a gentle breeze, and perhaps more like rapids during more powerful winds. After months of dazzling Union Station crowds, “Reflecting Motion” was unfortunately damaged when a severe storm came through the area and left thousands without power. The installation detached from the wires during the storm, as it was designed to do in high winds. Some of the films were damaged, and as it happened soon before the installation was set to come down, the venue decided to end the project early. Despite this, it was a well-received project throughout its time at Union Station and was a rousing success for the Poetic Kinetics team and RamJack. While it’s great to rely on experience to help diagnose or fix a foundation issue, we love it when we get to use creative problem solving on a project we’ve never done before. Our professionals do everything from crack repair for few hundred dollars, to large commercial jobs worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.

I especially commend Spartan Ram Jack for standing, not only behind their work, but standing behind the spirit of their contract. Once our foundation work began, unexpected challenges were encountered. Spartan Ram Jack stood behind their quote and took care of these issues. High marks to them for their integrity and working with me through the problems. Highly recommend them.

Overall, I'm very pleased. RamJack did a great job, and the results are perfect. The only complaint I have is that their estimate of needed materials was off by 50%, so the final price ended up being higher than anticipated. They were, however, upfront about the fact that estimating the size of a void underneath concrete is difficult, and about the cost of material in excess of the estimate. All t...

These are some of the most disrespectful group of people I think I have ever met. They lied at every step and made so many mistakes with our home that they openly admitted to using my home as an example of what not to do. They showed up late every day and left early, a week turned into two months. It took us calling them back 10 times to get the job done correctly and that was only because of our ...

I am confused by this review. As the project completed a few months ago . I looked up the notes and correspondence on this project and I would be happy to discuss any questions you may have. As it appears you were not the customer or the point of contact for this project, I assume there may just be some confusion. There were some changes in the work as unknowns were discovered. We were not told ab...

Andrew was excellent. I had previously chosen another company to do the work but they wanted 50% of the money up front and wanted to charge me almost 2X the amount I ended up paying with Spartan Ram Jack. Also, they did not want any money from me until the work was completed to my satisfaction. The crew was professional and although they had to dig almost 8 feet down to complete the project, I cou...

My garage/basement wall had water intrusion and cracks. Frank Sullivan came out and provided me with available options and estimates for each solution. I chose to have I-beams installed to the floor joists and seal the cracks. The work was explained before hand and I knew what to expect. The work crew finished in under 4 hours and now I have peace of mind about the support for my home and dry base...

they came out and did an estimate. I received the estimate by email and replied back three times that I would like them to do the work. They have not come out to do the work, but keep sending me emails asking if I would like the work done. Evidently they do not read their emails.

Gavin came out to evaluate for possible sump pump. He never called back with estimate despite my attempt to contact him directly and then through the office. After 2 weeks, I went with a competitor (Foundation 1), who was very prompt and professional. If Spartan didn’t want my business, they should have said so.
