Bill Gaines and his wife Anna welcomed their third child, John Abraham Gaines on Super Bowl Sunday.
Two crews worthy of recognition in October were both assigned to the Creekside at Tanyard Job in Pasadena, MD. Since both the grading and utility hit the ground at nearly the same time, it was essential that they cooperate and respect each other’s operation. This they did extremely well.
Jason Glancy led the excavating crew and they attacked the job with a vengeance. In about one month, they stripped 19,500 CY of top soil, and cut and filled 79,000 CY of material. This dynamic crew includes Daniel Kline on the 330 supplemented by Steve Dawson on the Volvo 360. Kyle Davis was the dozer man assisted by Oscar Morales and Josh Buzzell. The HM300s were operated by Brian Donovan, Zac Cofield, Ulysses Montes, Mike Elliot and Beau Grove. On the rollers were Webster Jackson and Jeremy Cofield. Charlie Burns assisted on the CAT 953 from time to time. Congratulations on a job well done.
Following closely behind Jason’s crew in production was Ron Roger’s pipe crew. Ronnie’s crew likewise hit the job with a vengeance. They are led by Steve Warch on the excavator and pipe layer Estaban Valles. Veteran Roger Grimm and Jose Andino did excellent work on the loaders. Assisting with pipe laying and compaction were Ignacio Portillo, Oscar Amaya and Jose Valles.
After knocking out some storm drain including some 53” x 34” elliptical, they jumped on the sewer portion of the job, averaging over 350 feet a day, laying mostly sewer deeper than 14 feet, a very impressive feat. On one day, they laid 216 feet of 19-20’ deep sewer. Wow! Another day they laid 691 feet of sewer and on a third day they laid 470 feet. Tremendous job all around!
