Utilities Work: Coordination is Critical

Secured Entrances, Existing Below Grade Conflicts, Site Safety Orientations, I.D. Badges, Limited Staging Areas, High Pedestrian Traffic, Confined Spaces... all familiar terms and guidelines when working on industrial, manufacturing, mission-critical, or healthcare projects. General Excavating thrives in these types of work environments and has often found itself between a concrete wall and some other immovable object. "One of the challenges of these types of projects is the large number of people all working in the same area. Coordination with other trades is crucial for a successful project," according to Brian Egr, Vice President at General Excavating. While work in a manufacturing facility, at a data center site, or on a busy college campus can provide some unique problems, it also represents an opportunity to display the construction skills and safety procedures General Excavating and its talented men and women utilize on a day-to-day basis. Does your project have a tight timeline or limited construction footprint? Are you installing a fire line, improving a storm sewer system, constructing a new sanitary sewer line, or installing floor drains? If so, before you start your next project and find yourself between a load-bearing wall and a tight spot, let General Excavating provide solutions and help BUILD THE FUTURE.
