Message from the President
Rain, Rain, go away, we have had our fill for now! LOL
Well it is already mid-July, summer is half over unfortunately and I don’t think it has been over 25 degrees for more than 3 days in a row! Oh well, hopefully August is a heater and everyone gets to enjoy some family and friend time at their favorite camping or lake spot this year. The economy is terrible so we may as well enjoy some extra vacation time this year while a person can.
Looks like we finally have all 3 Enbridge pump stations kicked off in the Fort McMurray area. Delays due to fires, materials and operations troubles have set us back a couple of months but we are all glad to be finally going with 3 crews on those projects.
New tender opportunities continue to roll into the Red Deer office to be bid on which is keeping our estimating team busy, unfortunately our batting average isn’t very high this year in comparison to previous years. Hopefully things will turn around for fall work and we can find a couple larger projects to work on and keep some more people and equipment working.
I wish I had more positive news and could tell everyone we landed a huge job but unfortunately I can’t do that this month but I will try hard for next month! Stay safe, stay positive and be happy for the work we do have as I am sure there are others less fortunate out there.
Cheers to all!
