When working on far-flung highway grading and site preparation projects, not having to start and end each day at the office or yard is a real benefit for employees and the company. Internet connections through cell phone towers, laptop computers for employees and special software platforms enable McCoy Grading Inc. to monitor its jobs as if its managers were onsite.

One of the things railroads have in common with skiing is that diamonds represent difficulty, whether you’re talking about a diamond-rated slope or a diamond crossing of two tracks. That’s why Ontario’s interregional public transit system, GO Transit and engineering firms McCormick Rankin Corp. (MRC) – a member of the MMM Group – and Delcan Corporation have come together to untangle a diamond crossing at the busiest railroad crossing in Canada.

Few things are as valuable in the construction business as relationships. Take, for example, the relationship between Utah’s Jacobsen Construction and medical device manufacturer Merit Medical. Project Executive Doug Hronek says the company’s current project – expanding Merit Medical’s production facility in New Jordan, Utah – wouldn’t be on Jacobsen’s docket without the previous work it had done for Merit.

Adaptive reuse projects often require a lot of care to maintain the integrity of the original structure, but few projects come with as much significance as the National Oceanic and Atmos­pheric Administration’s (NOAA) new Pacific Regional Center in Hawaii. Not only are the buildings being remodeled historic, but the work is taking place on some of the most hallowed ground in the United States – Pearl Harbor. 

After more than two decades, D.P. Electric Inc. says it has established itself as a contractor that Arizona clients can count on. “Our responsiveness and attention to detail has secured lasting relationships with the valley’s leading general contractors and corporations,” the company says.

With the tagline “Building Tomorrow’s Infrastructure Today,” D’Onofrio General Contractors Corp. is the go-to contractor for complex marine structure and heavy infrastructure projects in the Northeast, specifically in the states of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut.

Sometimes, abandoned infrastructure projects litter the outskirts of major cities. Roads go from two- or four-lane highways to limited access interstates for a few miles, and then back to roads with traffic lights. Frequently, the reason the interstate didn’t keep going – or was never built in the first place – is public opposition.

As foreign marine contractors look more closely at the Caribbean Islands in search for work, Sean Herrera says Capital Signal Co. Ltd. benefits from its hometown advantage. Add to that a safety program more extensive than the average regional marine contractor; a locally-based equipment fleet that allows for quick, low-cost mobilization; a diverse staff comprised of engineers, professional mariners and other specialty personnel, and it’s fair to say that Capital Signal can hold its own even in shark-filled construction waters.
