Biggest Business Mistake: Why Being Complacent is Dangerous for Engineering and Steel Fabrication Firms

Being complacent is a good indication that you are confident and are exceptionally experienced in your work or task that you are completing. Although that doesn’t mean that it is always the right way to be. There are a lot of unexpected situations out in the world today and even more on job sites. There are all different types of hazards depending on the type of job site.

Whether it’d be movement of heavy equipment, exposure to electrical equipment or walking from one location to another, once you “let your guard down” and become more focused on the task you are completing rather than what is happening around you, it increases the risk of getting yourself or others hurt and maybe even killed.

Design Build Contracts: Getting it Right

Posted by Raymond Perr, PE

Performance guarantees can be more effectively achieved, and many of the questions of responsibility that arise between the design, construction and commissioning phases of a project can be eliminated.

So, what are the significant differences between more conventional construction contracts and DBC that result in these advantages, and when do they work best?

Overland belt conveyors have been widely used as a cost effective method to transport bulk materials.

Recently, work started on the development of a new quarry a mile south of the current screening facilities. This article discusses the planning and development of a new mile long, 42 inch, overland conveyor designed and built to support this additional operation.
