A few months back you may recall I had touched on the firefighters and metal roofs subject, well, looks like it isn’t going away. Ultimately, before voicing an opinion we would like for you to read the article so that Continue reading
Grant Prior – Construction Enquirer – Two workers were left with broken bones but escaped with their lives after being struck by a length of steel that fell from nine floors above them. Continue reading
Thought this was actually really well done, even though many of you may not be hip-hop fans, the message gets delivered perfectly. Check the video out and Continue reading
Since this is my last post of the day I had to find something amusing and genius in the same respect. I believe some of you may say this is just a boneheaded move, but I look at it from the perspective that maybe their boss told them to get the task done and they were creative.

While some of this is not construction related you have to believe that these welding professionals can quickly adapt to any type of industry and job. Take a look at how they started and what they currently do by watching this video. Best line of the video is, “if you want to build something bad enough you have to learn to weld.”
Yes going to try to do another one today and in the spirit of July 4th let’s talk about our friend “ME.” Me was born back in 2013 and has grown up quickly to travel the world. Take a look at the photos through the years Continue reading

I saw this story this morning and while I believe this isn’t for the faint of heart, I do believe we need to discuss this in further detail. In terms of work site safety and materials being used, we as a society need to do a better job in securing construction that is occurring Continue reading

This video was very entertaining to me today. The commentary makes it even funnier. Take a look and let me know what you think.
Yesterday was day 1 of the Western Roofing Expo and we talked to quite a few people yesterday. One conversation really struck me more than any other I had yesterday. I was speaking with a gentleman from San Diego who is a Continue reading
