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.

In today’s global market place, the Coal industry must spend its capital and maintenance dollars effectively to remain competitive.

“Design Build Contracts” (DBC) consistently deliver projects that meet this goal.

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. Expanded collaboration between the Owner and the Contractor in planning, budgeting and scheduling that occurs during the procurement process and prior to the costs and commitments associated with a final design is also an important advantage.

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

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.

Some of the most commonly overlooked equipment inspections include:
