Swanberg Construction Inc. knows the best way to operate at underground job sites throughout North Dakota. Last year, the company earned a contract from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) to deliver an embankment raise and extension of levees and construction of two pump stations that will protect the city of Devils Lake, N.D., from the raising elevation of Devils Lake. 

In 2012, the iconic home of the Boston Red Sox, Fenway Park, is celebrating its 100th anniversary. Therefore, it is fitting that part of its centennial celebration includes opening a brand new facility inspired by the grand old lady of baseball. JetBlue Park in Fort Myers, Fla., the Red Sox’ new spring training facility, will open this year, providing the Sox with a park that resembles their ancestral home. 

Ever since Cox Construction Co. was founded in 1979, the company has shown a knack for working on federal, state and local construction projects. Cox Construction has built an impressive project portfolio by demonstrating quality work on its projects and meeting the time and budget concerns of clients. “We’ve learned how to work in the public market and handle the government systems that are required to get the projects completed,” President Todd Gillum says. “Once you get those systems down, it makes it easier to work in this market.”

Many industries are built on the prospect of repeat business, but in the construction and development sector, a trusted partner is far more valuable than any one contract. The ability to create lasting relationships that lead to future work can help company’s on both sides of the relationship to thrive. It all starts with that critical first project, and this is the journey that KBR Building Group and Erkiletian have embarked upon with The Asher mixed-used development project. 

Crews working on widening a highway in Pinellas County, Fla., have encountered many ups and downs on the project, literally. “There’s a lot of unusual topography in the area,” says Tom Woodward, a senior project manager and senior estimator for David Nelson Construction, the general contractor on the $31.6 million Keystone Road project. “In order to keep the road more level, we’re having to install a lot of walls and do significant earth work.”

Infrastructure improvements are seen as a necessary part of improving our nation’s economic fortunes. With better roads come better travel conditions for commuters and tourists alike. This is a major reason behind Clarkson Construction, the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) and the city of Overland Park working together on the US-69 and I-435 Interchange Area Improvement Project.

When the city of Lubbock, Texas, created Lake Alan Henry nearly 20 years ago, it knew the day would come when it would have to tap the resource to meet its water supply needs. The city did not expect that need to arise until 2020; however, significant droughts in recent years and the decline of existing resources led officials to accelerate their plans. “We built the lake for future water needs, and the future is now,” says City Engineer Wood Franklin, P.E.
