Case Studies Civil

Steve Deering – Spec Formliners Inc.

You can’t complain too much when the traffic backs up on Interstate 405 between Seal Beach and Costa Mesa. For many of the 16 car-jammed miles, the vistas of wildlife are breathtaking. Well, sort of. The scenes of plants and animals are at once real and imagined, molded and engraved into the concrete walls, dividers […]

John Standinger – LaBella Associates

When John Standinger took time to chat with Blueprint from his office in Rochester, New York, he couldn’t chat for long. For it was early summer, meaning it was time to oversee the maintaining of bridges and parks. That can take some doing in and around this medium-sized city on the southern shore of Lake […]

McAnany Construction Inc.

The road paved with good intentions needn’t lead to someplace unpleasant.

McAnany Construction Inc., an asphalt paving and construction company in Shawnee, Kansas, has long been noted for all of the above, and in the […]

Brechbill & Helman Construction Co.

History buffs have long been drawn to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, site of the 1863 Civil War battle that so turned the tide in the Union’s favor and inspired Abraham Lincoln’s famous address.

Their company, Copcan Civil Ltd., a hybrid of “copper” and “canyon,” […]

McCarthy Building Companies

Of all things, McCarthy Building Companies is stocking up on shipping containers. The reason why? Safety. By opening the front and back doors of enclosed, conex-type containers, the company can use them as tunnels at worksite entrances, protecting workers from falling debris. Robert Coibion, chief estimator for McCarthy, says the idea came from one of […]

Blue Nile Contractors Inc.

Founded by Henok Tekeste, Claycomo, Missouri-based Blue Nile Contractors Inc. is a full-service utility contracting company serving municipal clients throughout the state. Born in Ethiopia, Tekeste says the company represents his idea of the American dream. “When I came to the United States, I never intended to work for somebody,” says Tekeste, president and founder […]
