The vast majority of our projects require the use of large numbers of diverse heavy equipment. Our fleet of heavy and specialized equipment numbers over 850 pieces. Given the restraints of aggressive schedules, we must often mobilize multiple spreads of equipment and crews to numerous projects at once. Our plentiful equipment resources enable us to respond with sufficient, appropriate equipment to handle the task. This gives us a decided edge when considering our ability to hastily replace downed or damaged equipment. Maintaining our equipment by our own highly skilled mechanics and service technicians, whether in the field or in our shops, gives us another advantage by better enabling us to control both costs and availability. We also enjoy excellent relationships with many of the major equipment vendors around the country which allows us to short-term rent any specialized equipment we do not already own or have available.
