MOBILIZES CREWS TO CLEANUP WILDFIRES AFTER 2018 BRINGS MOST DESTRUCTIVE AND DEADLIEST FIRE SEASON IN CALIFORNIA HISTORY 2018 marks the deadliest and most destructive wildfire season in California history with more than 8,500 fires having burned 1.9 million acres. The most destructive of these wildfires was the Camp Fire, which started on November 8th, destroying the town of Paradise and surrounding areas. Nearly 19,000 structures burned in this single fire, resulting in billions of dollars in insurance claims. But the greatest tragedy of

all was the loss of 86 lives to the flames, making the Camp Fire the deadliest wildfire in State history. The grim reality that California faces – along with much of the western United States – is that this pattern of more frequent and larger wildfires is likely here to stay. Climatic changes and a growing population intruding into more remote wilderness areas point to the increasing likelihood of devastating fires. The Tubbs

Fire struck Sonoma County in 2017 and was the second most destructive fire in State history, burning more than 5,500 structures and claiming 22 lives. The last two years have seen other significant fires – the Carr Fire in Shasta and Trinity Counties, the Mendocino Complex Fire, the Nuns Fire in Sonoma County, the Woolsey Fire in Malibu, and the Thomas Fire in Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties.

Each of these wildfires ends with a similar response and sequence of operations. Once the flames have been extinguished and the displaced have settled into new communities, the massive cleanup efforts must get underway. This process takes place over the course of several weeks to months and is the crucial first step in a community’s healing process, paving the way for rebuilding and eventual recovery. Anvil Builders out of San Francisco is a civil engineering

construction company that has answered the call, having mobilized its fully-staffed disaster response team into several wildfire zones over the past three years. Anvil has employed dozens of cleanup crews that have toiled for long grueling hours, oftentimes through the hottest months of the year. To date, Anvil has removed more the 400,000 tons of fire debris from burn zones and safely transported this material to the proper landfill or recycling facility.

Anvil Builders was established in 2010 by co-founders, Alan Guy (President), Richard Leider (Executive VP and CFO) and Hein Manh “HT” Tran (Chairman Emeritus). Richard Leider was born and raised in San Francisco and has worked hard over many years to build a reputation for excellence in the financial and commercial real estate industry. HT Tran joined the Army at the age of 26 and suffered injuries from an IED blast in 2008 while serving in Iraq. He retired from

the military and used his military construction experience to build his career in government contracting and construction. Alan Guy was born in Alaska and spent his first 12 years on Kodiak Island before moving to Bend, Oregon. He graduated from UC Davis in Mechanical Engineering and immediately went to work for a large general civil engineering contractor in San Francisco before starting Anvil Builders with his partners. “We followed our vision and started a company based on military ethics,” says Guy. “We all met through HT’s mentor, Bob Nielson, who was a high-ranking executive for Turner Construction. He has long been a great supporter of veterans, and after he retired, he started teaching at Walter Reid Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland, where he met HT. Richard had also dealt with Bob Nielson through the years, and they 8

D EMO & R ECYCL I NG / 2 0 1 9

had developed a good relationship as well, so Bob was the common ground that brought us all together.” Anvil Builders continues its commitment to advancing veterans in the community, a culture that was begun by HT and has been featured in the San Francisco Chronicle and on CNN. “Our goal is to hire as many qualified veterans as possible, and we interview every vet that comes through the door,” says Guy. “We have always hired smart, driven individuals that will help us maintain our reputation for being the best in our particular disciplines.” Anvil Builders performs a lot of general engineering underground utility work, as well as structural concrete and mechanical pipeline work from the Oregon border

down to Los Angeles. The bulk of their projects, however, are located throughout the City of San Francisco and greater Bay area. Over the past few years, Anvil Builders has grown their debris cleanup division to where it now encompasses around 25 percent of their overall workload. “We started at the absolute bottom of the recession in 2010, and there were many who thought we were nuts for doing so at that particular time,” says Guy. “But as it turned out, we timed things well, and now we are one of the larger and more proficient fire cleanup contractors in all of California.” Anvil Builders currently has around 320 employees on their payroll, and according to Guy, the more challenging a project is, the more they want it. “We are consistently working for the San Francisco International Airport, { Continued on page 10 }

the San Francisco Public Utility Commission and a long list of city, county and other public agencies in Northern California,” says Guy. Anvil Builders is a member of the operators, laborers, carpenters and pile drivers’ union. The majority of their work is within the public works arena, with around 20 percent being in private construction. Anvil Builders’ first experience with fire cleanup was back in October 2017 after the Tubbs Fire in Sonoma County, which at the time, was the most destructive wildfire in California history. They were working as a subcontractor to Environmental Chemical Corporation (ECC) and have worked for them on every fire cleanup project since. “We were right there after the first responders in Santa Rosa during 10

D EMO & R ECYCL I NG / 2 0 1 9

the Tubbs Fire in 2017,” says Guy. “Our crews were naturals and did an exceptional job out there under challenging circumstances. We moved on from there to do our part on the Carr fire in Redding, as well as the Malibu Woolsey fire and Paradise Camp Fire that started in late 2018.” PARADISE FIRE CLEANUP California’s deadliest and most destructive fire erupted Nov. 8, 2018, in Butte County and indiscriminately consumed everything in its path. It was dubbed “The Camp Fire” because it started near Camp Creek Road before devouring the town of Paradise and parts of the Concow and Magalia communities. In all, the 153,000-acre fire consumed around 14,000 homes, 4,800 other structures and killed 86 people. “We were on-site within 48 hours of being awarded the contract from ECC. We have been running 17 debris cleanup crews in Paradise, consisting of around 120 Anvil

personnel,” says Guy. “Our crews are responsible for surveying the site after the asbestos has been cleared by another subcontractor. Next, we go to work sorting the materials by metal, concrete, ash, and other debris. Contaminated soil is loaded into dump trucks and transported to various landfills. We have around 600 truckloads coming off these sites each day, and we will be out here through fall 2019.” The state’s CalRecycle agency is overseeing the estimated $2 billion cleanup process and managing all of the contractors and consultants on-site. “I would say the biggest challenge we face each day is the emotionally draining part of this job,” says Guy. “You are step one of the recovery process for people that have lost everything. The owner shows up, and we walk the lots and sort through debris to recover valuable and sentimental items. It gets extremely emotional, and that is the hardest part.”


MALIBU WOOLSEY FIRE CLEANUP The Woolsey Fire traveled south from Ventura County and crossed the 101 Freeway into Point Dume Nov. 9, 2018. Powerful Santa Ana winds fed the inferno as it burned 97,000 acres, destroying 1,500 structures in Los Angeles and Ventura counties, and ultimately killing three people. It took everything in its path, from small 400 sq. ft. structures to $25 million oceanfront villas. Around 670 structures within the Malibu city limits were destroyed, including more than 400 single-family homes. The massive fire’s front was 14 miles wide and impacted a more than 150 square mile radius. “At our peak, we had 17 crews in Paradise and 10 in Malibu at the same time,” says Guy. “We performed the same tasks at both disaster sites, but the Malibu job has been much more challenging due to the hilly terrain and homes built right into the hillsides. We will exceed 1,000 structures on the Paradise job and around 200 home site cleanups in

Malibu. We started cleanup on the Woolsey Fire in February and should have everything wrapped up and all of the lots graded and ready for rebuilding by the end of July.” Anvil Builders owns and operates a large fleet of heavy construction machines, and according to Guy, they had everything from Cat mini excavators, skid steers and wheel loaders to the larger Cat 349E, 117,500 lb. excavators on-site to break up concrete, load trucks and perform many other tasks. “We had around 40 pieces of heavy machinery up north on the Paradise job and close to 200 pieces of moving machinery and trucks in all, including water buffaloes and other utility units,” says Guy. “We have a great relationship with Peterson Cat up north and our sales representative, Tom Lum, always takes great care of us, even on a moment’s notice. We own most of the equipment that we have on-site, but we also have several units on RPO and a few on rental from Peterson as well.” Anvil Builders works with Quinn Company down south whom they have purchased and rented from over the years. “We work with Miguel Llamas, sales representative-

Quinn Rental Services at Quinn Company, and he takes good care of our needs,” says Guy. “Having the right equipment, the right dealer, and the proper heavy equipment support is imperative when working on these demanding fire cleanup projects. We are happy to have both Peterson Cat and Quinn Company by our side.” Anvil Builders has successfully delivered and self-performed tens of millions of dollars in municipal, state and federal contracts. Their most recent work includes several significant San Francisco Bay area infrastructure projects, including Hilltop Drive Pump Station, Oceanside Treatment Plant, West Napa Street Water System Replacement and the EBMUD Grand Avenue project. They specialize in public works and infrastructure projects with an approach that is firmly structured on military standards, performance, and ethics. They currently have offices in San Francisco and Los Angeles.

MAVERICK ROCK BREAKING BREAKING GROUND TODAY FOR A SMOOTHER TOMORROW By Brian Hoover, Editor

Maverick Rock Breaking was established in September 2017 by Paul Moralez. Although the company was only recently established, Moralez is no newcomer to the construction industry in Southern California. He started Diversified Landscape in 1989 as a small landscape maintenance company catering to North Orange County and the Western Inland Empire. Diversified Landscape has performed a broad spectrum of landscape projects over the past 30 years and now serves all of Southern California. Their workload ranges from public works projects, new schools, and public facilities landscaping, to Caltrans freeway jobs and erosion control. Maverick Rock Breaking and Diversified Landscape are both operating as a DBA to Diverscape, Inc. Both companies are members of the union and recognized as a DBE and small business concern. They are quickly developing synergy as the company looks for projects that require both landscape and rock breaking disciplines. Vicki Moralez serves as the president of Diverscape, Inc. and their DBA’s, Maverick Rock Breaking and Diversified Landscaping. She has been an officer of the company for 26 years and is an integral contributor to the company’s success. Paul Moralez serves as vice president of the corporation and has been actively involved with all company operations since its inception 30 years ago. Paul played baseball for UC Riverside and went on to sign professionally with the Dodgers whom he played for from 1984 to 1987. “I had a little money left over 12

D EMO & R ECYCL I NG / 2 0 1 9

from my signing bonus, and after leaving baseball, I went on to start a small landscape construction company in 1989,” says Moralez. “We grew to where we were taking on large landscape contracts with Caltrans and other agencies, working on freeways and city parks, among other things. The majority of our annual business still comes from Diversified Landscape, but we are quickly gaining notoriety and respect for our work in the specialty rock breaking industry.” Moralez points out that they already had the staffing requirements and construction experience to support the new rock breaking venture. “We had the administrative support, and we were familiar with the standard specification and procedures on how the state of California and Federal Government operate,” says Moralez. “The rest came down to hiring the best and most experienced operators and

management possible to assure success in our new venture.” Moralez says the idea to go into the rock breaking business came after meeting industry professional, Marc Keller, at his son’s baseball game. Marc Keller had been in the rock breaking business with his father and brother for 13 years and fate seemed to bring the two men together. “I met Paul through our sons who play baseball together, and over a few years of talking, he found out that our family had owned and operated Performance Rock Breaking for many years,” says Keller. “We unfortunately closed our business in 2010 when the economy took a turn for the worse and my father decided to retire, while my brother, Brian and I went to work for Flatiron, Kiewit and eventually worked together on the 91 Freeway project for Atkinson Walsh.” It was at this time that Keller approached Paul Moralez to see if he had any

openings for operators, and to his surprise Paul asked him to come into his office for a meeting. “Paul let me know at our meeting that he was more interested in having me and my brother start a whole new rock breaking division for his company since that is what we did best for so many years,” says Keller. “I agreed and around a month later, we were purchasing a machine and a hammer and Maverick Rock Breaking was born.” Keller went to work for Paul as the operations manager and lead operator for Maverick, while his brother joined on to put his skills to work as an operator. His first call was to Sukut because that was one of his best customers in the past with his previous company. “We got our Cat excavator delivered on a Thursday and we were out working for Sukut the following Tuesday. This was June 2017, and we had spent from late April to June getting everything in order,” says Keller. “We are growing at an impressive pace and taking on more jobs with each passing month. It is just a matter of getting the word out so that people know that we have the experience, knowledge and best rock breaking operators in the business here at Maverick and the rest will take care of itself.” Moralez now had a new and exciting division starting out strong and in the capable hands of the Keller brothers and the new rock breaking team was getting noticed fast. Being an athlete for as long as he can remember, Moralez looks at things from a sports perspective where teamwork and hard work win the day. “You have Varsity and JV, entry-level and professional players and we are only interested in the best. Our standards are extremely high, and we are never in a hurry when it comes to the hiring process,” says Moralez. “We look for an over the top work ethic and integrity in all situations. There is no substitute for excellence, and the people that we have brought in to work with our Maverick Rock Breaking team 14

are skilled operators with decades of experience, and their knowledge and experience are bringing us to the top of our industry.” Ray Arredondo is the business development manager for Maverick Rock Breaking, starting with the company in April 2019. “Ray and I share similar fundamental values. During our interviews, it was clear that Ray’s practical knowledge and field experience were what we were looking for to excel in our newest venture,” says Moralez. “He has been in the industry for 20 years and worked for a well-known grading contractor. He knows heavy equipment and all about what goes on at a job site after working in the trenches as an operator and Superintendent. He is what I call a player/coach, and that is what we need to manage and grow Maverick Rock Breaking efficiently.” Moralez says that the plan over the next few years is to have at least 10 excavators in the fleet and 15 to 20 of the best operators with demolition experience on the payroll. “As Ray is developing and growing this division, he is constantly looking to add people and heavy machinery,” says Moralez. “That takes patience, and we will take our time to find and acquire the best. We will also be on the lookout for jobs that require both our landscaping and rock breaking divisions. Word-of-mouth is traveling fast, and as we continue to bid weekly; I can see us growing from where we are now at around $1.5 million to $10 million annually in a relatively short period.” Maverick Rock Breaking’s primary focus is breaking up hard rock for developers and general contractors throughout Southern California. “Developers are running out of suitable land to build housing tracks and commercial developments, and they are now finding ways to make the remaining land work, and that is where we come in,” says Moralez. Maverick Rock Breaking has been working as a subcontractor for companies like Sukut Construction and other well-known and respected

site preparation development contractors. “It is our job to help them turn unsuitable hard rock material like decomposed and blue granite into smaller more manageable pieces that can be crushed and recycled for use as road base material or to be used in asphalt or concrete mix designs. Their options are limited. They can blast, but they will still need to call on someone to break up the boulders and size the material for crushing or transport. We can do both jobs and usually save the developer or contractor 30 to 40 percent in the process. It is a win/win for everyone.” Maverick Rock Breaking is currently on a project right now for a developer on a housing project in Murrieta. Part of the job calls for Maverick to go 3 feet below subgrade so that they can scarify the top. They also have a road going in that needs to go down 10 feet below subgrade. Maverick’s work began April 22, 2019, and it looks like they will remain on-site at least through the end of August. Boulders and hard rock material are being crushed on-site and hauled off to various development locations or to concrete and asphalt producers to be used in production. The original plans were that the developer would be on-site dealing with the rock material through 2020. That was before they brought in Maverick Rock Breaking to save them time and money with their experienced operators and amazing equipment. “They have done the math to determine how much of the crushed rock material will remain on-site for use as road base or other fill material,” says Arredondo. “Some areas will require 14 to 18 inches of road base before the new asphalt road surface is paved. Importing this material is very expensive and costly, where using the crushed material will save them tens of thousands of dollars. That is a massive savings when you consider that we are breaking and processing around 200 tons an hour and up to 45,000 tons of rock every month.”


Arredondo explains that another critical factor for success in the rock breaking business is using the right equipment. “We are using a Cat 349E excavator with a BTI BXR120 hydraulic breaker attachment to break up and process all of the rock on the Murrieta development project,” says Arredondo. “Not just any machine and attachment will do, and not just any operator can get it done as efficiently as ours. We have many customers that have their own machines and breakers, but our professional operators show up and get it done in a fraction of the time, and that means greater profit and productivity for our clients. Breaking rock is as much about the operator as it is the machine. You have to know where and how to break it, when and how to roll it. There are just so many factors involved in doing it right.” Arredondo insists that it all comes down to the man and the machine. “We only buy and use the best equipment, and that includes Caterpillar and BTI breakers. We look for value when buying equipment and It is not always about the price, it is about longevity, sustainability, productivity, and reliability,” says Arredondo. “We look at the equipment company like a customer would look at us for our services, and that means being able to count on them for reliable customer service.”

Arredondo points to the relationship Maverick has with Tom Witt, BTI Sr. Regional Manager Southwest U.S. and Terry McKague, Director of Sales North America/ International for BTI as an example of exemplary sales and service. “The relationship that we have with Tom and Gary at BTI is unmatched by any other attachment company that we have ever dealt with,” says Arredondo. “These guys stop by unannounced from time to time just to see how we are getting along. They call us regularly to check on our needs and see if we are having any issues and you don’t see that much these days.” Arredondo also points to the tremendous production they get out of their BTI breakers, which they have never experienced with any other brand. “Many popular breakers on the market will take as many as 15 hits to break a rock and achieve the same results that our BTI breaker can do in just three hits. The bottom line is that it is our job is to make our customers money, and if we are producing three times as much as our competitor in the same amount of time, we are going to outshine them and get asked back for the next job,” says Arredondo. “It is all about time and

productivity in this business. If we lose an hour, that is significant. If we lose a day, that can amount to the loss of thousands of dollars, and BTI is always there for us and never lets us down.” Arredondo also has high praise for Quinn Company whom they have purchased a long list of Cat machines from over the years. “We have purchased Cat excavators, backhoes, dozers, skid steers and skip loaders from Quinn Company and their product, service, and support is the best in the industry,” DE M O & R EC YC L I N G / 2 0 1 9

says Arredondo. “Quinn and our sales representative, Justin Usary, are there for us when we need them. We know how busy these guys are and that they have hundreds of customers and thousands of machines in the field, but they always find time to answer questions or be there for us with timely parts and service.” Maverick Rock Breaking relies on their top of the line equipment to provide customers like Sukut Construction with their very best out in the field. They have been working for Sukut Construction recently out at Porter Ranch where they were asked to move around 85,000 yards of basin material. “We have one of our best operators out on the Porter Ranch job for Sukut, and he is using a Cat 349E excavator with a 78-inch bucket to fill and send out 396 truckloads each day,” says Arredondo. “The job was scheduled and expected to take six weeks, but we got it done in less

than three weeks. The client was so impressed that they asked us to move an additional 50,000 yards, and that is when we know that we are doing something right.” In addition to rock breaking, Maverick provides trenching and underground excavation services. They also offer operated equipment rentals to contractors for just about any project. “We are networked with a long list of contractors and road builders, and they call on us for operated equipment rental regularly,” says Moralez. “We have a late model fleet of Cat excavators, backhoes, track skid steers, dozers, skip loaders, hydro seeders, mulch blowers, water trucks, and attachments for rental with the best operators in the business.” Maverick has also become involved in the green waste recycling business. “We invested in a couple of 80-yard mulch trucks that we load up with compost material and

mulch from recycling plants and pneumatically apply to freeway hillsides and medians and other projects,” continues Moralez. “From the freeway, it just looks like mulch, but in reality, it is green waste that provides nitrogen to the plants and dirt, while also serving as weed suppression and erosion control.” Maverick Rock Breaking and Diversified Landscape have around 95 full time and 10 part-time employees.

he Parker Center served as the Los Angeles Police Department headquarters from 1955 through most of 2009. It was located in downtown Los Angeles and renamed in 1966 after former LAPD chief William H. Parker. Referred to as “The Glass House,” the eight-story structure was designed by architect Welton Becket, whose firm also designed the Beverly Hilton Hotel and the Capitol Records Building. Parker Center was built at the cost of $6.1 million ($58 million in today’s dollars) to be the finest and most modern police headquarters structure in the world. After nearly 60 years of use, the building became outdated and in need of expensive seismic retrofits. After being vacant for 13 years, the City of Los Angeles decided to raze the building in favor of a new 27-story high-rise that will eventually house city employees and services that are currently located throughout several buildings. The new 27-story office tower will be approximately 450 feet in height, with just over 750,000 square feet of government office space, 65,000 square feet of ground floor commercial space and subterranean parking for approximately 1,200 vehicles. It is expected to house about 3,200 city employees. Silverado Contractors was awarded the $18 million contract to demolish the building. The notice to proceed was given on June 18, 2018. Silverado Contractors has been involved in a long list of demolition projects, including the Bay Bridge, Candlestick Park and the Sixth Street Viaduct Bridge in Los Angeles to name a few. The demolition process for Parker Center was broken down into several phases and is scheduled to be fully complete sometime in December 2019. Jimmy Saldivar is the Project Manager overseeing the demolition process for Silverado Contractors, Inc. “The first order of business was to salvage and remove identified artifacts that were a part of the original construction, including the monument sign and other features and items deemed historically significant,” says Saldivar. “Our next step was 18

D EMO & R ECYCL I NG / 2 0 1 9


SILVERADO CONTRACTORS BRINGING DOWN PARKER CENTER IN LOS ANGELES TO MAKE ROOM FOR NEW 27-STORY HIGH-RISE CITY ADMINISTRATION BUILDING

to take the 30 percent drawings given to us and work with our engineer and design firm to create a Demolition Design Plan.” Saldivar explains that the contract called for more than just the demolition of the Parker Center building. “The plans called for the installation of new dry utility infrastructure so that critical communication lines could be relocated by others,” says Saldivar. “We had our subcontractor, Blois Construction, installing approximately 3,000 feet of the underground utility infrastructure while we began the first phase of the actual demolition process.” The first phase of the demolition was to remove all hazardous materials. This included the abatement of asbestos that was found mainly in the floor tile and pipe insulation in the interior of the building,” says Saldivar. “There was also some PCB contaminated concrete on the outside of the building around all of the windows. All of this was going on while the dry utilities were being excavated and installed.” According to Saldivar, the next phase of the demolition process called for floor by floor demolition from the eighth floor down to the second level along the west elevation. “We ran a 10-man crew with two Link-Belt Spin Ace excavators equipped with hammer attachments and four skid steer loaders with grapple buckets to demo everything from the roof down to the second floor,” says Saldivar. “This method was used to eliminate the hazards and potential challenges associated with bringing down a building that is in close proximity to other active structures.” In this case, Silverado Contractors has been working within 10 feet of the 911 dispatch building on one side and around 25 feet from the jail on the other side. “Safety is always our number one concern, followed by controlling the noise and dust levels as much as possible,” says Saldivar. “I am pleased to say that we have not received one complaint on this project thus far and have had an excellent and productive working relationship with the City’s project management team.” DE M O & R EC YC L I N G / 2 0 1 9

Silverado Contractors has moved on to the final phase of the project where they brought in their larger highreach excavators to bring down the balance of the building. The structure is a poured in place concrete building with 340,000 square feet of tower that is being demoed utilizing the top-down methodology. “We are currently using our Hitachi 850 highreach with 130 feet of reach equipped with a concrete processor and our Hitachi 870 highreach unit with 70 feet of reach with a pulverizer attachment to bring down the exterior,” says Saldivar. “We will process around 45,000 tons of concrete and 3,600 gross tons of steel by the end of the job. This is a 75 percent recycle minimum project, but it looks like we will come in closer to 90 percent recyclable.” Every demolition project comes with its challenges, and the Parker Center project was certainly no exception to the rule. “The interesting and challenging part of this project is that the building was live with some active utilities running through it during the utility rerouting and demolition process,” says Saldivar. “It was important that we did not disrupt the daily workflow of both adjacent government facilities and our crews did a great job of not only maintaining the live utilities but also keeping the noise and dust levels down as much as humanly possible. I am very proud of our crew and the outstanding job they have done on this project.” With demolition wrapping up in December 2019, construction of the new 27-story office tower will 20

begin sometime in 2020 with completion and grand opening by 2023. Silverado Contractors has completed hundreds of large-scale, complex demolition projects since their inception in 2000. Their scope of work and expertise includes building demolition, selective demolition, industrial, marine, transportation, bridge removal, remediation, complete site decommissioning, plan closure, asset recovery, and recycling, as

TRENCH SHORING COMPANY SCORES ITS OWN TOUCHDOWN AT LA MEMORIAL COLISEUM FOLLOWING RAMS 2019 DIVISIONAL PLAYOFF GAME By Chris Kennedy & Bobbie Cooper

It’s not often that a football playoff season and an order for steel plates converge. This was the case last winter during the 2019 NFL playoffs when Trench Shoring Company received a call from Calex Engineering. Calex Engineering was involved in the remodeling/ construction project underway at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum project. The Los Angeles Rams were scheduled to play the Dallas Cowboys at the LA Coliseum on Jan. 12, 2019. Since the aging Coliseum would be undergoing renovations directly after the game, Calex Engineering requested multiple truckloads of Trench Shoring Company’s Trench Top™ Steel Trench Plates to protect the surface of the Coliseum floor during the renovation project. However, as Calex dispatcher Evan Steen notes, “We had unique challenges with the LA Coliseum project involving specific start dates with tight schedules around the playoffs. Time was our biggest challenge.” The delivery timing of the steel plates depended on whether or not the Rams won their Coliseum game with the Cowboys and whether their next potential rival—the New Orleans Saints also won their game. If the Rams had lost against the 22

D EMO & R ECYCL I NG / 2 0 1 9

Cowboys, the Trench Shoring Company Trench Top Steel Plates order would be delivered bright and early on the morning of Monday, Jan. 14. On the other hand, if the Rams won, but the Saints lost, Trench Shoring Company was instructed to cancel the Jan. 14 order because the Rams would be playing another game at the Coliseum the following weekend. This meant rescheduling the plates for Monday, Jan. 21. In both scenarios, Trench Shoring Company trucks needed to be fully loaded with trench plates by 5 a.m. even if they wouldn’t be needed on that particular day. As it turned out, both the Rams and Saints won, so the next playoff game between the Rams and Saints took place in New Orleans. The steel plates order was successfully scheduled for delivery Monday, Jan. 14, with Trench Shoring Company trucks fully loaded at 5 a.m. This dependable, customerfocused performance by Trench Shoring Company doesn’t surprise Evan Steen. “Our experience with Trench Shoring Company has been awesome. They always take our calls, and we’ve never had problems with late deliveries or pickups – no complications whatever.”

The Trench Shoring Company Trench Tops ordered by Calex for the LA Coliseum project included: • • • • •

5-4’X6’ Trench Top steel trench plates 984 lbs. 6-6’X8’ Trench Top steel trench plates 1,968 lbs. 5-8’X12’ Trench Top steel trench plates 3,936 lbs. 6-8’X15’ Trench Top steel trench plates 4,920 lbs. 10-8’X20’ Trench Top steel trench plates 6,650 lbs.

For this project, Calex also requested a supply of Trench Shoring Company’s TRACKCLEAN®, which is used to clean the tires of the trucks driving in and out of the job site. Calex job site field supervisor, Greg Peters, adds: “We covered the LA Coliseum field with cloth and base, and we are using the plates to protect the infrastructure of the stadium from heavy trucks and cranes. We’re protecting manholes and vaults. We did the exact same thing last year, again using Trench Shoring company equipment. This is the second year of this project, involving the same tight timelines. We cannot afford to lose time as there are giant liquidated damages —millions per game in fines—if we

don’t finish on time. For that reason, we always turn to Trench Shoring Company. This decision has been a certainty for many years.” Trench Shoring Company’s extensive inventory of steel trench plates, combined with their professional, experienced team of installers and the responsiveness of their entire team, meant that they could be flexible, and deliver on time, even with a rapidly changing schedule. Trench Shoring Company has one of the largest inventories of Trench Top steel trench plates on

the West Coast. Their inventory includes trench plates with nonskid surfaces which conform to updated city regulations and increase job site safety. Delivery and pickup by Trench Shoring Company’s boom trucks make the use of Trench Tops convenient and economical while the job proceeds efficiently. For 46 years, clients have relied on Trench Shoring Company to provide extensive inventory, around-the-clock support, and personalized customer service. Trench Shoring Company provides the construction industry with the

largest inventories of highest quality equipment and custom-ized support from their 10 convenient locations servicing the Central Coast, Southern California and Las Vegas, Nevada. Offering the construction industry first-in-class service, engineering, rentals, sales, inventory, and training, the Company continues to be on the leading technologi-cal edge of their business. Trench Shoring Company has remained a family business with a proud legacy of commitment to safety and service. Cc DE M O & R EC YC L I N G / 2 0 1 9
