     binding or not, under which the Company or an ERISA Affiliate has any
     current or future obligation or liability or under which any present or
     former employee of the Company or an ERISA Affiliate, or such present or
     former employee's dependents or beneficiaries, has any current or future
     right to benefits (each such plan and arrangement referred to hereinafter
     as a "Plan"), together with true and complete copies of such Plans,
     arrangements and any trusts related thereto, and classifications of
     employees covered thereby as of the Balance Sheet Date.  Except as set
     forth in Schedule 5.16, neither the Company nor any ERISA Affiliate
     sponsors, maintains or contributes currently, or at any time during the
     preceding five years, to any plan, program, fund or arrangement that
     constitutes an employee pension benefit plan.  Each Plan may be terminated
     by the Company, or if applicable, by an ERISA Affiliate at any time without
     any liability, cost or expense, other than

 
     costs and expenses that are customary in connection with the termination of
     a Plan. For purposes of this Agreement, the term "employee pension benefit
     plan" shall have the meaning given that term in Section 3(2) of ERISA, and
     the term "ERISA Affiliate" means any corporation or trade or business under
     common control with a Company as determined under Section 414(b), (c), (m)
     or (o) of the Code.

          (b) Each Plan listed in Schedule 5.16 is in compliance in all material
     respects with the applicable provisions of ERISA, the Code, and any other
     applicable Law.  Except as set forth in Schedule 5.16, with respect to each
     Plan of the Company and each ERISA Affiliate (other than a "multiemployer
     plan," as defined in Section 4001(a)(3) of ERISA), all reports and other
     documents required under ERISA or other applicable Law to be filed with any
     Governmental Authority, the failure of which to file could reasonably be
     expected to result in a material liability to the Company or any ERISA
     Affiliate, including all Forms 5500, or required to be distributed to
     participants or beneficiaries, have been duly and timely filed or
     distributed.  True and complete copies of all such reports and other
     documents with respect to the past five years for each Plan have been
     provided to Quanta.  No "accumulated funding deficiency" (as defined in
     Section 412(a) of the Code) with respect to any Plan has been incurred
     (without regard to any waiver granted under Section 412 of the Code), nor
     has any funding waiver from the Internal Revenue Service been received or
     requested.  Except as set forth in Schedule 5.16, each Plan that is
     intended to be "qualified" within the meaning of Section 401(a) of the Code
     (a "Qualified Plan") is, and has been during the period from its adoption
     to the date hereof, so qualified, both as to form and operation and all
     necessary approvals of Governmental Authorities, including a favorable
     determination as to the qualification under the Code of each of such
     Qualified Plans and each amendment thereto, have been timely obtained.
     Except as set forth in Schedule 5.16, all accrued contribution obligations
     of the Company with respect to any Plan have either been fulfilled in their
     entirety or are fully reflected in the Financial Statements.

          (c) No Plan has incurred or will incur, and no Company nor any ERISA
     Affiliate has incurred or will incur, with respect to any Plan, any
     liability for excise tax or penalty due to the Internal Revenue Service.
     There have been no terminations, partial terminations or discontinuances of
     contributions to any Qualified Plan during the preceding five years without
     notice to and approval by the Internal Revenue Service and payment of all
     obligations and liabilities attributable to such Qualified Plan.

          (d) Except as set forth in Schedule 5.16, neither the Company nor any
     ERISA Affiliate has made any promises of retirement or other benefits to
     employees, except as set forth in the Plans, and neither the Company nor
     any ERISA Affiliate maintains or has established any Plan that is a
     "welfare benefit plan" within the meaning of Section 3(1) of ERISA that
     provides for continuing benefits or coverage for any participant or any
     beneficiary of a participant after such participant's termination of
     employment, except as may be required by Part 6 of Subtitle B of Title I of
     ERISA and Section 4980B of the Code and similar state Law provisions, and
     at the expense of the participant or the beneficiary of the participant, or
     retiree medical liabilities.  Neither the Company nor any ERISA Affiliate
     maintains, has established or has ever participated in a multiple employer
     welfare benefit arrangement as described in Section 3(40)(A) of ERISA.
     Except as set forth in

 
     Schedule 5.16, neither the Company nor any ERISA Affiliate has any
     current or future obligation or liability with respect to a Plan pursuant
     to the provisions of a collective bargaining agreement.

          (e) Neither the Company nor any ERISA Affiliate has incurred any
     material liability to the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation in
     connection with any Plan.  The assets of each Plan that are subject to
     Title IV of ERISA are sufficient to provide the benefits under such Plan,
     the payment of which the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation would
     guarantee if such Plan were terminated, and such assets are also sufficient
     to provide all other "benefits liabilities" (as defined in ERISA Section
     4001(a)(16)) due under such Plan upon termination.

          (f) No "reportable event" (as defined in Section 4043 of ERISA) has
     occurred and is continuing with respect to any Plan.  There are no pending,
     or to the Company's and the Stockholder's knowledge, threatened claims,
     lawsuits or actions (other than routine claims for benefits in the ordinary
     course) asserted or instituted against, and neither the Company nor any
     ERISA Affiliate has knowledge of any threatened litigation or claims
     against, the assets of any Plan or its related trust or against any
     fiduciary of a Plan with respect to the operation of such Plan.  To the
     Company's and the Stockholder's knowledge, there are no investigations or
     audits of any Plan by any Governmental Authority currently pending and
     there have been no such investigations or audits that have been concluded
     that resulted in any liability to the Company or any ERISA Affiliate that
     has not been fully discharged.  Neither the Company nor any ERISA Affiliate
     has participated in any voluntary compliance or closing agreement programs
     established with respect to the form or operation of a Plan.

          (g) Neither the Company nor any ERISA Affiliate has engaged in any
     prohibited transaction, within the meaning of Section 406 of ERISA or
     Section 4975 of the Code, in connection with any Plan for which exemption
     was not available.  Except as set forth in Schedule 5.16, neither  the
     Company nor any ERISA Affiliate is, or ever has been, a participant in or
     is obligated to make any payment to a multiemployer plan.  No person or
     entity that was engaged by the Company or an ERISA Affiliate as an
     independent contractor within the last five years reasonably can or will be
     characterized or deemed to be an employee of the Company or an ERISA
     Affiliate under applicable Laws for any purpose whatsoever, including,
     without limitation, for purposes of federal, state and local income
     taxation, workers' compensation and unemployment insurance and Plan
     eligibility.

     5.17  LITIGATION AND COMPLIANCE WITH LAW.  Except as set forth in
Schedule 5.17, there are no claims, actions, suits or proceedings, pending or,
to the knowledge of the Company and the Stockholder, threatened against or
affecting the Company, at law or in equity, or before or by any Governmental
Authority having jurisdiction over the Company. No written notice of any claim,
action, suit or proceeding, whether pending or threatened, has been received by
the Company and, to the Stockholder's and the Company's knowledge, there is no
basis therefor. Except to the extent set forth in Schedule 5.17, the Company has
conducted and is conducting its business in compliance with all Laws applicable
to the Company, its assets or the operation of its business.

     5.18  TAXES.  For purposes of this Agreement, the term "Taxes" shall mean
all taxes, charges, fees,

 
levies or other assessments including, without limitation, income, gross
receipts, excise, property, sales, withholding, social security, unemployment,
occupation, use, service, service use, license, payroll, franchise, transfer and
recording taxes, fees and charges, imposed by the United States or any state,
local or foreign government or subdivision or agency thereof, whether computed
on a separate, consolidated, unitary, combined or any other basis; and such term
shall include any interest, fines, penalties or additional amounts attributable
to or imposed with respect to any such taxes, charges, fees, levies or other
assessments.  The Company has timely filed all requisite federal, state, local

has duly paid in full or made adequate provision in the Financial Statements for
the payment of all Taxes for all periods ending at or prior to the Closing Date.
The Company has duly withheld and paid or remitted all Taxes required to have
been withheld and paid in connection with amounts paid or owing to any employee,
independent contractor, creditor, shareholder or other person or entity that
required withholding under any applicable Law, including, without limitation,
any amounts required to be withheld or collected with respect to social
security, unemployment compensation, sales or use taxes or workers'
compensation.  There are no examinations in progress or claims against the
Company relating to Taxes for any period or periods prior to and including the
Balance Sheet Date and no written notice of any claim for Taxes, whether pending
or threatened, has been received.  The Company has not granted or been requested
to grant any extension of the limitation period applicable to any claim for
Taxes or assessments with respect to Taxes.  The Company is not a party to any
Tax allocation or sharing agreement and is not otherwise liable or obligated to
indemnify any person or entity with respect to any Taxes.  The amounts shown as
accruals for Taxes on the Interim Financial Statements as of the Balance Sheet
Date are sufficient for the payment of all Taxes for all fiscal periods ended on
or before that date.  True and complete copies of (a) any tax examinations, (b)
extensions of statutory limitations and (c) the federal, state and local Tax
returns of the Company for the last three fiscal years have been previously
provided to Quanta.  There are no requests for ruling in respect of any Tax
pending between the Company and any Taxing authority.  The Company has been
taxed under the provisions of Subchapter S of the Code since June 1, 1992.  The
Company currently utilizes the accrual method of accounting for income tax
purposes.  Such method of accounting has not changed in the past five years.

                      material fact or omit to state any fact necessary to make
                      the statements therein, in light of the circumstances

                      transfer agent and registrar;

               (vii)  otherwise use its best efforts to comply with all
                      applicable rules and regulations of the SEC, and make
                      available to its security holders, as soon as practicable,

                      the effectiveness of such registration statement, or of
                      any order suspending or preventing the use of any related
                      prospectus or suspending the qualification of any
                      Registrable Stock included in any registration statement
                      for sale in any jurisdiction, Quanta will promptly notify
                      the Stockholder thereof and will use its commercially
                      reasonable efforts promptly to obtain the withdrawal of
                      such order.

                      The Stockholder agrees that if Quanta has delivered
                      preliminary or final prospectuses to Stockholder and after
                      having done so Quanta shall give notice to Stockholder
                      that (i) the prospectus needs to be amended or
                      supplemented to comply with the requirements of the 1933
                      Act, (ii) a stop order suspending the effectiveness of the
                      registration is issued by the SEC or (iii) a Potential
                      Material Event shall exist, then Stockholder shall
                      immediately cease making offers and sales of Registrable
                      Stock and return all remaining prospectuses to Quanta.
                      Following such amendment or supplement, the lifting of any
                      stop order or such time as the Potential Material Event
                      shall no longer exist, Quanta shall promptly provide
                      Stockholder with revised prospectuses and, following
                      receipt of the revised prospectuses, Stockholder shall be
                      free to resume making offers of the Registrable Stock, or
                      any portion thereof. The period during which Quanta
                      exercises its rights described in this paragraph to
                      postpone, delay or interrupt the offer and sale of the
                      Registrable Stock or during the pendency of any stop
                      order, injunction or other order or requirement of the SEC
                      or any other governmental agency or court shall be added
                      to the period for which Quanta must keep such registration
                      effective pursuant to subsection (i) of this Section
                      7.9(b).

          (c)  Quanta shall pay all expenses incident to Quanta's performance of
               or compliance with this Section 7.9, including, without
               limitation, all registration, SEC filing fees, New York Stock
               Exchange fees, all fees and expenses of complying with securities
               or blue sky laws, printing expenses, the fees and disbursements
               of counsel for Quanta

 
               and of its independent public accountants, provided, however,
               that Quanta shall not pay, and Stockholder shall pay, any
               underwriting discounts, commissions and transfer taxes in respect
               of the Registrable Stock being registered.

          (d)  As a condition to Quanta's obligations hereunder, Stockholder
               shall furnish to Quanta such information regarding Stockholder
               and the distribution proposed by Stockholder as Quanta may
               reasonably request and as shall be required in connection with
               any registration, qualification or compliance contemplated by
               this Agreement.

          (e)  Quanta agrees to indemnify, to the extent permitted by law,
               Stockholder against all Losses caused by any untrue or alleged
               untrue statement of material fact contained in the registration
               statement required by this Section 7.9, including any prospectus
               or preliminary prospectus included therein, or any amendment
               thereof or supplement thereto or any omission or alleged omission
               of a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to
               make the statements therein not misleading, except insofar as the
               same are caused by or contained in any information furnished in
               writing to Quanta by Stockholder expressly for use therein or by
               Stockholder's failure to deliver a copy of the registration
               statement or prospectus or any amendments or supplements thereto
               after Quanta has furnished Stockholder with a sufficient number
               of copies of the same.  Any claim to indemnification pursuant to
               this Section 7.9(e) shall be made pursuant to Article VIII
               hereof.

          (f)  In connection with any registration statement, Stockholder will,
               to the extent permitted by law, indemnify Quanta, its directors
               and officers and each person who controls Quanta (within the
               meaning of the 1933 Act) against any Losses resulting from any
               untrue or alleged untrue statement of material fact contained in
               the registration statement, prospectus or preliminary prospectus
               or any amendment thereof or supplement thereto or any omission or
               alleged omission of a material fact required to be stated therein
               or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading (but
               only to the extent that any such untrue statement or omission is
               contained in any information or affidavit so furnished in writing
               by Stockholder for use therein) and any failure of Stockholder to
               deliver a copy of the registration statement or prospectus or any
               amendments or supplements thereto after Quanta has furnished
               Stockholder with a sufficient number of copies of the same.  Any
               claim to indemnification pursuant to this Section 7.9(f) shall be
               made pursuant to Article VIII hereof.

                                  ARTICLE VIII
                                INDEMNIFICATION

     The Stockholder, Quanta and Newco each make the following covenants:

     8.1.  GENERAL INDEMNIFICATION BY THE STOCKHOLDER.  Subject to Section 8.5
and Section 8.6 the

 
Stockholder covenants and agrees that he will (without any right of
indemnification or contribution from the Company) indemnify, defend, protect and
hold harmless Quanta, Newco and the Surviving Corporation, and their respective
officers, directors, employees, stockholder, agents, representatives and
Affiliates, at all times from and after the date of this Agreement from and
against all Losses incurred by any of such indemnified persons as a result of or
arising from (a) until the Expiration Date any breach of the representations and
warranties of the Stockholder set forth herein or in the Schedules or
certificates delivered in connection herewith, (b) any breach or nonfulfillment
of any covenant or agreement on the part of the Stockholder or the Company under
this Agreement, (c) all income Taxes payable by the Company for all periods
prior to and including the Closing Date, (d) all transfer and other Taxes
arising from the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or (e) as the
result of the breach of, or non-compliance by the Company with, any
Environmental, Health and Safety Law prior to the Closing.

     8.2.  INDEMNIFICATION BY QUANTA.  Subject to Section 8.5 and Section 8.6,
Quanta covenants and agrees that it will indemnify, defend, protect and hold
harmless the Stockholder and his respective agents, representatives, Affiliates,
beneficiaries and heirs and employees at all times from and after the date of
this Agreement from and against all Losses incurred by any of such indemnified
persons as a result of or arising from (a) until the Expiration Date, any breach
of the representations and warranties of Quanta or Newco set forth herein or in
the Schedules or certificates attached hereto or (b) any breach or
nonfulfillment of any covenant or agreement on the part of Quanta or Newco under
this Agreement.

     8.3.  THIRD PERSON CLAIMS.  Promptly after any party hereto (hereinafter
the "Indemnified Party") has received notice of or has knowledge of any claim by
a person not a party to this Agreement ("Third Person"), of the commencement of
any action or proceeding by a Third Person, which the Indemnified Party believes
in good faith is an indemnifiable claim under this Agreement, the Indemnified
Party shall give to the party obligated to provide indemnification pursuant to
Sections 8.1 or 8.2 hereof (hereinafter the "Indemnifying Party") written notice
of such claim or the commencement of such action or proceeding. Such notice
shall state the nature and the basis of such claim and a reasonable estimate of
the amount thereof. The Indemnifying Party shall have the right to defend and
settle, at its own expense and by its own counsel, any such matter so long as
the Indemnifying Party pursues the same diligently and in good faith. If the
Indemnifying Party undertakes to defend or settle, it shall promptly notify the
Indemnified Party of its intention to do so, and the Indemnified Party shall
cooperate with the Indemnifying Party and its counsel in all commercially
reasonable respects in the defense thereof and in any settlement thereof. Such
cooperation shall include, but shall not be limited to, furnishing the
Indemnifying Party with any books, records and other information reasonably
requested by the Indemnifying Party and in the Indemnified Party's possession or
control. After the Indemnifying Party has notified the Indemnified Party of its
intention to undertake to defend or settle any such asserted liability, and for
so long as the Indemnifying Party diligently pursues such defense, the
Indemnifying Party shall not be liable for any additional legal expenses
incurred by the Indemnified Party in connection with any defense or settlement
of such asserted liability; provided, however, that the Indemnified Party shall
be entitled, at its expense, to participate in the defense of such asserted
liability and the negotiations of the settlement thereof. The Indemnifying Party
shall not settle any such Third Person claim without the consent of the
Indemnified Party, unless the settlement thereof imposes no liability or
obligation on, and includes a complete release from liability of, the
Indemnified Party. If the Indemnifying Party desires to accept a final and
complete settlement of any such Third Person claim and the

 
Indemnified Party refuses to consent to such settlement, then the Indemnifying
Party's liability under this Section with respect to such Third Person claim
shall be limited to the amount so offered in settlement by said Third Person;
provided, however, that notwithstanding the foregoing, the Indemnified Party
shall be entitled to refuse to consent to any such proposed settlement and the
Indemnifying Party's liability hereunder shall not be limited by the amount of
the proposed settlement if such settlement does not provide for the complete
release of the Indemnified Party. If, upon receiving notice, the Indemnifying
Party does not timely undertake to defend such matter to which the Indemnified
Party is entitled to indemnification hereunder, or fails diligently to pursue
such defense, the Indemnified Party may undertake such defense through counsel
of its choice, at the cost and expense of the Indemnifying Party, and the
Indemnified Party may settle such matter, in its discretion, and the
Indemnifying Party shall reimburse the Indemnified Party for the amount paid in
such settlement and any other liabilities or expenses incurred by the
Indemnified Party in connection therewith.

     8.4. NON-THIRD PERSON CLAIMS.  In the event that any Indemnified Party
asserts the existence of a claim giving rise to Losses (but excluding claims
resulting from the assertion of liability by Third Persons), such party shall
give written notice to the Indemnifying Party.  Such written notice shall state
that it is being given pursuant to this Section 8.4, specify the nature and
amount of the claim asserted, and indicate the date on which such assertion
shall be deemed accepted and the amount of the claim deemed a valid claim (such
date to be established in accordance with the next sentence).  If such
indemnifying Party, within 60 days after the mailing of notice by such
Indemnified Party, shall not give written notice to such Indemnified Party
announcing such Indemnifying Party's intent to contest such assertion of such
Indemnified Party, such assertion shall be deemed accepted and the amount of
such claim shall be deemed a valid claim.  In the event, however, that such
Indemnifying Party contests such assertion of a claim by giving such written
notice to the Indemnified Party within said period, then the parties shall act
in good faith to reach agreement regarding such claim.  In the event that
litigation shall arise with respect to any such claim, the prevailing party
shall be entitled to reimbursement of costs and expenses incurred in connection
with such litigation including reasonable attorneys' fees, if the parties
hereto, acting in good faith, cannot reach agreement with respect to such claim
within 60 days after the notice provided by the Indemnified Party.

     8.5.  INDEMNIFICATION DEDUCTIBLE.  Neither the Stockholder, on the one
hand, nor Quanta, Newco and the Surviving Corporation, on the other hand, shall
be entitled to indemnification from the other under the provisions of Section
8.1(a) or Section 8.2(a), as the case may be, until such time as, and only to
the extent that, the claims subject to indemnification by such other party
exceed, in the aggregate, $600,000. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the
limitations set forth in this Section 8.5 shall not apply to fraudulent
misrepresentations.

     8.6.  INDEMNIFICATION LIMITATION.  Subject to Section 8.5, the aggregate
indemnification obligation of the Stockholder under Section 8.1(a) and of Quanta
and Newco under Section 8.2(a) shall be limited to $60,000,000.  Notwithstanding
the foregoing, the limitations set forth in this Section 8.6 not apply to
fraudulent misrepresentations.

 
     8.7.  INDEMNIFICATION FOR NEGLIGENCE OF INDEMNIFIED PARTY.  THE RIGHTS TO
INDEMNIFICATION UNDER THIS ARTICLE VIII INCLUDE RIGHTS TO INDEMNIFICATION FOR
THE RESULTS OF AN INDEMNIFIED PARTY'S ACTUAL OR ALLEGED NEGLIGENCE, IF SUCH
INDEMNIFIED PARTY WOULD OTHERWISE BE ENTITLED TO INDEMNIFICATION HEREUNDER.

     8.8  EXCLUSIVE REMEDY.  Except as expressly provided in this Agreement, the
provisions of this Article VIII, absent fraud, shall be the sole and exclusive
remedy of any party after the Closing Date for any damage, claim, cause of
action or right of any nature arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the
certificates or other documents executed or delivered herewith, or the
transactions contemplated hereby. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the limitations
set forth in this Section 8.8 shall not apply to equitable relief sought by
Quanta with regard to the covenants of the Stockholder set forth in Section 7.2,
ARTICLE IX or ARTICLE X.


                                   ARTICLE IX
                            NONCOMPETITION COVENANTS

     9.1  PROHIBITED ACTIVITIES.

          (a) For no additional consideration, the Stockholder will not for five
     years following the  Closing Date and, if longer, one year following
     Stockholder's termination of employment with the Surviving Corporation or
     its Affiliates (with the applicable period being herein referred to as the
     "Noncompete Term"), directly or indirectly, for himself or on behalf of or
     in conjunction with any other person, company, partnership, corporation or
     business of whatever nature:

               (i)    engage, as an officer, director, shareholder, owner,
                      partner, joint venturer, or in a managerial or advisory
                      capacity, whether as an employee, independent contractor,
                      consultant or advisor, or as a sales representative, in
                      any Competitive Business within 150 miles of (A) where the
                      Company or any of its subsidiaries conducts a Competitive
                      Business, or has conducted a Competitive Business within
                      the past three years or (B) where Quanta or the Surviving
                      Corporation or an Affiliate of Quanta or the Surviving
                      Corporation conducts a Competitive Business after the
                      Closing that is, within six months prior to the date of
                      termination of Stockholder's employment, a Competitive
                      Business under his supervision or managerial authority
                      (such areas being herein referred to as the "Territory");

               (ii)   call upon any person, who is, at that time, an employee or
                      consultant of Quanta, the Surviving Corporation or any of
                      their respective subsidiaries, for the purpose or with the
                      intent or effect of enticing such employee or consultant
                      away from or out of the employ or contract with Quanta,
                      the Surviving Corporation or any of their respective
                      subsidiaries; or

 
               (iii)  call upon any person or entity which is, at that time, or
                      which has been, within one year prior to that time, a
                      customer of the Company, Quanta or the Surviving
                      Corporation or any of the subsidiaries of such parties
                      within the Territory for the purpose of soliciting or
                      selling services or products in a Competitive Business
                      within the Territory.

          (b) Notwithstanding the above, Section 9.1(a) shall not be deemed to
     prohibit  Stockholder from acquiring, as a passive investor with no
     involvement in the operations of the business, not more than one percent of
     the capital stock of a Competitive Business whose stock is publicly traded
     on a national securities exchange, The NASDAQ Stock Market or over-the-
     counter.

     9.2.     EQUITABLE RELIEF.  Because of the difficulty of measuring economic
losses to Quanta and the Surviving Corporation as a result of a breach of the
foregoing covenant, because a breach of such covenant would diminish the value
of the assets and business of the Company being sold pursuant to this Agreement,
and because of the immediate and irreparable damage that could be caused to
Quanta and the Surviving Corporation for which it would have no other adequate
remedy, Stockholder agrees that the foregoing covenant may be enforced against
him by injunctions, restraining orders and other equitable actions.

     9.3     REASONABLE RESTRAINT.  It is agreed by the parties hereto that the
foregoing covenants in this ARTICLE IX are necessary in terms of time, activity
and territory to protect Quanta's and the Surviving Corporation's interest in
the assets and business being acquired pursuant to the terms of this Agreement
and impose a reasonable restraint on Stockholder in light of the activities and
businesses of the Company on the date of the execution of this Agreement and the
current plans of the Company.

     9.4.  SEVERABILITY; REFORMATION.  The covenants in this ARTICLE IX are
severable and separate, and the unenforceability of any specific covenant shall
not affect the continuing validity and enforceability of any other covenant. In
the event any court of competent jurisdiction shall determine that the scope,
time or territorial restrictions set forth in this ARTICLE IX are unreasonable
and therefore unenforceable, then it is the intention of the parties that such
restrictions be enforced to the fullest extent which the court deems reasonable
and this Agreement shall thereby be reformed.

     9.5.  MATERIAL AND INDEPENDENT COVENANT.  Stockholder acknowledges that
his agreements and the covenants set forth in this ARTICLE IX are material
conditions to Quanta's and Newco's agreements to execute and deliver this
Agreement and to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby and that Quanta
and Newco would not have entered into this Agreement without such covenants. All
of the covenants in this ARTICLE IX shall be construed as an agreement
independent of any other provision in this Agreement.


                                   ARTICLE X
                   NONDISCLOSURE OF CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION

     10.1.  GENERAL.  Stockholder recognizes and acknowledges that he had in
the past, currently has,

 
and in the future will have, access to certain confidential information relating
to the businesses of the Company, such as lists of customers, operational
policies, and pricing and cost policies that are, and following the Closing will
be, valuable, special and unique assets of the Surviving Corporation.
Stockholder agrees that he will not use or disclose such confidential
information to any person, firm, corporation, association or other entity for
any purpose whatsoever, except as is required in the course of performing his
duties, if any, to the Surviving Corporation and/or Quanta, unless (a) such
information becomes known to the public generally through no fault of
Stockholder, or (b) disclosure is required by Law, provided that prior to
disclosing any information pursuant to this clause (b) Stockholder shall, if
commercially reasonable, give prior written notice thereof to Quanta and the
Surviving Corporation and provide Quanta with the opportunity to contest such
disclosure.  In the event of a breach or threatened breach by Stockholder of the
provisions of this Section, Quanta shall be entitled to an injunction
restraining Stockholder from disclosing, in whole or in part, such confidential
information.  Nothing herein shall be construed as prohibiting Quanta from
pursuing any other available remedy for such breach or threatened breach,
including, without limitation, the recovery of damages.

     10.2.  EQUITABLE RELIEF.  Because of the difficulty of measuring economic
losses as a result of the breach of the foregoing covenants, because a breach of
such covenant would diminish the value of the assets and business of the Company
being sold pursuant to this Agreement, and because of the immediate and
irreparable damage that would be caused for which the Surviving Corporation
and/or Quanta would have no other adequate remedy, Stockholder agrees that the
foregoing covenants may be enforced against him by injunctions, restraining
orders and other equitable actions.


                                   ARTICLE XI
                             INTENDED TAX TREATMENT

     11.1.   TAX-FREE REORGANIZATION.  Quanta and the Stockholder are
entering into this Agreement with the intention that the Merger qualify as a
tax-free reorganization for federal income tax purposes, except to the extent
of any "boot" received, and neither Quanta nor the Stockholder will take any
actions that disqualify the Merger for such treatment.


                                  ARTICLE XII
              FEDERAL SECURITIES ACT AND CONTRACTUAL RESTRICTIONS
                             ON QUANTA COMMON STOCK

     12.1  COMPLIANCE WITH LAW.   The Stockholder acknowledges the shares of
Quanta Common Stock  issued in accordance with the terms of this Agreement (the
"Restricted Shares") will not be registered under the 1933 Act, except as
required by Section 7.9, and therefore may not be resold without compliance with
the 1933 Act.  The Restricted Shares are being or will be acquired by the
Stockholder solely for his own account, for investment purposes only, and with
no present intention of distributing, selling or otherwise disposing of them in
connection with a distribution.  The Stockholder covenants, warrants and
represents that none of the Restricted Shares will be, directly or indirectly,
offered, sold, assigned, pledged,

 
hypothecated, transferred or otherwise disposed of except after full compliance
with all of the applicable provisions of the 1933 Act and the rules and
regulations of the SEC. Until the effective date of the shelf registration
statement filed pursuant to Section 7.9, certificates representing the shares of
Quanta Common Stock issued at the Closing shall bear the following legend:

     THE SHARES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE WERE NOT ISSUED IN A TRANSACTION
     REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED ("SECURITIES ACT"),
     OR ANY APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS.  THE SHARES REPRESENTED HEREBY
     HAVE BEEN ACQUIRED FOR INVESTMENT AND MAY NOT BE SOLD OR TRANSFERRED UNLESS
     SUCH SALE OR TRANSFER IS COVERED BY AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT
     UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT AND APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS OR, IN THE
     OPINION OF COUNSEL TO THE ISSUER, IS EXEMPT FROM THE REGISTRATION
     REQUIREMENTS OF THE SECURITIES ACT AND SUCH LAWS.

     12.2.  ECONOMIC RISK; SOPHISTICATION; ACCREDITED INVESTORS.  Stockholder
is able to bear the economic risk of an investment in the Restricted Shares and
can afford to sustain a total loss of such investment.  Stockholder has such
knowledge and experience in financial and business matters that he is capable of
evaluating the merits and risks of the proposed investment and therefore has the
capacity to protect his own interests in connection with the acquisition of the
Restricted Shares pursuant hereto. Stockholder represents to Quanta and Newco
that he is an "accredited investor," as that term is defined in Regulation D
under the 1933 Act.  Stockholder or his representatives have had an adequate
opportunity to ask questions and receive answers from the officers of Quanta and
Newco concerning, among other matters, Quanta, its management, its plans for the
operation of its business and potential additional acquisitions.

     12.3  RESTRICTION ON SALE OR OTHER TRANSFER OF RESTRICTED SHARES.
Stockholder covenants, warrants and represents that, (i) 50% of the shares of
Quanta Common Stock issued at the Closing will not be offered, sold, assigned,
pledged, hypothecated, transferred or otherwise disposed of, directly or
indirectly, during the one-year period commencing on the Closing Date (the
"Initial Lockup Period") and (ii) 25% of the shares of Quanta Common Stock
issued at the Closing will not be offered, sold, assigned, pledged,
hypothecated, transferred or otherwise disposed of, directly or indirectly,
during the two-year period commencing on the Closing Date (the "Secondary Lockup
Period" and together with the Initial Lockup Period, the "Lockup Periods"), and,
after the applicable Lockup Period, the shares of Quanta Common Stock issued at
the Closing may be offered, sold, assigned, pledged, hypothecated, transferred
or otherwise disposed of directly or indirectly, only after full compliance with
all of the applicable provisions of the 1933 Act and the rules and regulations
of the SEC; and, during the applicable Lockup Period, Stockholder shall not
engage in put, call, short-sale, hedge, straddle or similar transactions
intended to reduce the Stockholder's risk of owning the shares subject to lockup
restrictions under this Section 12.3.  Certificates representing a portion of
the shares of Quanta Common Stock issued at the Closing, shall bear the
following legend, which shall reflect the applicable Lockup Period, in addition
to the legend under Section 12.1:

          THE SHARES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE ARE SUBJECT TO A
          CONTRACTUAL RESTRICTION ON TRANSFER THAT EXPIRES ON AUGUST 13, 200_
          AND MAY NOT BE OFFERED, SOLD, ASSIGNED, PLEDGED, HYPOTHECATED,
          TRANSFERRED OR OTHERWISE DISPOSED OF DURING

 
          THE PERIOD OF SUCH CONTRACTUAL RESTRICTION WITHOUT THE PRIOR WRITTEN
          CONSENT OF QUANTA SERVICES, INC.

     12.4.  REMOVAL OF LEGENDS.  The legends required under Section 12.1 and
Section 12.3 shall be removed at the request of the Stockholder at any time
after the effective date of the shelf registration statement, or the expiration
of the applicable Lock Up-Period with respect to those shares, respectively.


                                  ARTICLE XIII
                                 MISCELLANEOUS

     13.1.   SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS.  This Agreement and the rights of the
parties hereunder may not be assigned (except by operation of Law) and shall be
binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of the parties hereto, the
successors of Quanta, Newco, the Surviving Corporation and the Company, and the
heirs and legal representatives of the Stockholder.

     13.2.   ENTIRE AGREEMENT.  This Agreement (including the Schedules,
exhibits and annexes attached hereto) and the documents delivered pursuant
hereto constitute the entire agreement and understanding among the Stockholder,
the Company, Newco and Quanta and supersede any prior agreement and
understanding relating to the subject matter of this Agreement, including,
without limitation, the Letter of Intent.  This Agreement may be modified or
amended only by a written instrument executed by the Stockholder, the Company,
Newco and Quanta, acting through their respective officers, duly authorized by
their respective Boards of Directors.

     13.3.   COUNTERPARTS.  This Agreement may be executed simultaneously in two
or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original and all of which
together shall constitute but one and the same instrument.  Facsimile
transmission of any signed original document and/or retransmission of any signed
facsimile transmission will be deemed the same as delivery of an original.  At
the request of any party, the parties will confirm facsimile transmission by
signing a duplicate original document.

herein, no delay of or omission in the exercise of any right, power or remedy
accruing to any party as a result of any breach or default by any other party
under this Agreement shall impair any such right, power or remedy, nor shall it
be construed as a waiver of or acquiescence in any such breach or default, or of
any similar breach or default occurring later; nor shall any waiver of any
single breach or default be deemed a waiver of any other breach or default
occurring before or after that waiver.

     13.8.  REFORMATION AND SEVERABILITY.  In case any provision of this
Agreement shall be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, it shall, to the extent
possible, be modified in such manner as to be valid, legal and unenforceable,
but so as to most nearly retain the intent of the parties, and if such
modification is not possible, such provision shall be severed from this
Agreement, and in either case, the validity, legality and enforceability of the
remaining provisions of this Agreement shall not in any way be affected or
impaired thereby.

     13.10  DISPUTE RESOLUTION.

            (a) Except with respect to injunctive relief as provided in Section
     9.2 and Section 10.2 (which relief may be sought from any court or
     administrative agency with jurisdiction with respect thereto), any
     unresolved dispute or controversy arising under or in connection with this
     Agreement shall be settled exclusively by arbitration in accordance with
     the rules of the American Arbitration Association then in effect.  The
     arbitration shall be conducted by a retired judge employed by the Atlanta,
     Georgia Regional Office of J.A.M.S./Endispute, Inc. ("JAMS").  The
     arbitration shall be held in JAMS' Atlanta, Georgia office.

            (b) The parties shall obtain from JAMS a list of the retired judges
     available to conduct the arbitration.  The parties shall use their
     reasonable efforts to agree upon a judge to conduct the arbitration.  If
     the parties cannot agree upon a judge to conduct the arbitration within 10
     days after receipt of the list of available judges, the parties shall ask
     JAMS to provide the parties a list of three available judges (the "Judge
     List").  Within five days after receipt of the Judge List, each party shall
     strike one of the names of the available judges from the Judge List and
     return a copy of such list to JAMS and the other party.  If two different
     judges are stricken from the Judge List, the remaining judge shall conduct
     the arbitration.  If only one judge is stricken from the Judge List, JAMS
     shall select a judge from the remaining two judges on the Judge List to
     conduct the arbitration.

            (c) The arbitrator shall not have the authority to add to, detract
     from, or modify any provision hereof nor to award punitive damages to any
     injured party.  The arbitrator shall have the authority to order payment of
     damages, reimbursement of costs, including those incurred to enforce this
     Agreement, and interest thereon in the event the arbitrator determines that
     a material breach of this Agreement has occurred.  A decision by the
     arbitrator shall be final and binding.  Judgment may be entered on the
     arbitrator's award in any court having jurisdiction.

 
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have executed this Agreement as of the
date first written above.
