The best landmarks in the world are those that can withstand the test of time, but the only way to build an enduring structure is to have a solid foundation. A solid foundation requires the expertise of a solid contractor that is unmatched in the industry with regard to quality, professionalism and experience. McKinney Drilling Co. has provided clients with quality foundation services for more than 75 years.

As a project manager for 13 years at Charles Blalock and Sons Inc., Chad Woodroof has rarely seen a project his company can’t handle. Although stubborn, rocky soils might be a barrier to some construction contractors, Blalock and Sons can excavate, blast and pave its way to a successful job completion.

For President Steve Barrs, C.A. Barrs Contractor Inc. has not only been a business, but it also has given him the satisfaction of watching personal growth among employees. “I’ve enjoyed the people that I’ve worked with, and I’ve enjoyed seeing people grow in their careers,” he says.

Barnard Construction’s experience with many different facets of heavy civil construction is being put to good use during one of the company’s largest ongoing projects. The Bozeman, Mont.-based contractor’s work on the Snoqualmie Falls Hydroelectric Redevelopment Project includes tunnel enlargement, deep shaft work, large-diameter pipeline placement, structural concrete, turbine/generator installation, and mechanical and electrical system replacement.

It works with high-powered industrial sprayers instead of fine-tipped brushes, and it works with paint mixed more for its durability than its expressive colors. However, when you consider the importance and difficulty of what Abhe & Svoboda Inc. does, the industrial coatings and restoration contractor’s work is no less a work of art than anything hanging in the Louvre. 

For WK Construction, laying a $740 million multi-product fuel pipeline from its headquarters city of Johannesburg, South Africa, to Durban – a distance of more than 300 miles – is challenging, but not beyond the company’s capabilities. 

Thalle Construction Company began as a road contractor in 1947. Since then, it has expanded its pool of construction services to include dams, landfills, sitework, communication technology, utility work and roller compacted concrete for private and public entities. The company also owns and operates quarries, portable asphalt plants and crushers that supply materials directly to the sites.

The Fremont Central Park Subway pro­ject in California’s Bay Area is exactly the sort of job Shimmick Construction Inc. thrives on performing. The $136.7 million project involves underground excavation, temporary relocation of parkland and retention ponds, extensive coordination of schedules and subcontractors and other complex elements that call for the kind of ex­perience the Oakland, Calif.-based civil construction and engineering firm brings to its jobs.
