Facing Challenges Makes Family Business Even Stronger EMERALD from page 1

Livestock, Live Work By 1978, the couple had incorporated and was fully invested in developing a successful business. By 1981, the business had grown to the point that they hired a laborer and a driver/mechanic. “The ‘corporate office’ at that time resided in the attic of our hybrid shop/cow-barn,” said Rory. “In 1984, my parents gave the livestock some sense of peace by purchasing a piece of commercial land and relocating the business.” “My mother’s role as the leader of a successful site-work company resulted from her personal qualities proving invaluable to the business as it grew. She is thorough, organized, efficient, energetic and confident; these are qualities that establish her value as a leader regardless of gender and regardless of industry norms,” said Rory. They selected the name of their company because of its Irish reference to the Emerald Isle. “It was something my parents just liked the sound of,” added Rory. Meanwhile, their two sons, Rory and Sheamus, grew up and into the business. Their mother is still majority shareholder and president. Their father, while semi-retired, still maintains an active involvement with day-to-day operations. “Their influence is ever-present and still very much a part of the culture of our company. The decision for my brother and me to get involved in operating and managing the company has certainly facilitated the continued growth, adaptation and success of Emerald Excavating,” said Rory.

“Through our involvement, my parents have been able to craft their roles and level of involvement according to their desires, rather than necessity.”

We will take a backyard-grading job for $1,000 or a $20,000,000 site job. We travel from northern Massachusetts to southern Rhode Island if the job is right.” said Rory.

A Clear Strategy The Kellehers have a clear strategy to thrive in challenging economic times: “We attempt to leverage all the means at our disposal to predict the direction of our industry. We monitor national and local economic conditions through various media outlets. We maintain a dialogue with our bonding and insurance agents. We are in the fortunate position of having at our disposal the predictive powers of a customer base that includes many national and international firms. We attend trade shows such as ConExpo and MASCON searching for breaking technology and innovations in our industry. We listen to the engineers and architects we regularly work with and to our vendors, suppliers and even competitors. We maintain an active relationship with our equipment suppliers. We listen to the feedback and experiences of other businesses and members of our local community,” Rory explained. “There are no shortcuts to developing a great reputation if you are in business for the long haul. Consistent excellence in safety, professionalism, quality, expertise, efficiency, fairness, value, dedication and determination lead to a stellar reputation,” added Rory. “When customers actually want you to do their work instead of anybody else you have an enormous advantage. Our mission statement is ‘Be the best.’ It doesn’t get any simpler, but we mean it. “As a company, we are willing to do any job, big or small.

Trying Times “I can say with certainty that these difficult times have made our company much stronger. Coming out of this difficult economy, our company will be more diversified, more financially stable, more skilled and more efficient,” he said. “We will have a broader customer base, a larger geographic territory and better reputation coming out of this economic downturn than we did going into it. These hard times have forced us to improve as a company in ways that we wouldn’t have otherwise endeavored to.” After being exposed to the business from birth, the brothers said it would be difficult to imagine ever doing anything else. “Roughly in 1998, after obtaining undergraduate degrees in Civil Engineering, my brother and I verbalized our commitment to returning to the family business,” Rory added. “We would obtain our Masters Degrees in Geotechnical Engineering from Georgia Tech. I would then continue at Georgia Tech for an MBA while Sheamus worked for an engineering company until he was able to get his P.E. license. I finished in 2001 and returned to Emerald Excavating as business manager and Sheamus finished by 2002 and returned as the operations manager.” Primarily focused on small local builders and homeowners in the 1970s and 1980s, the company procured a concrete form company and began offering concrete foundation services in the mid-1980s. From 2000 to this year, Emerald has expanded its services dramatically. “During this same time period, we invested heavily in modernizing our equipment fleet and in technology such as GPS layout rovers, automated bulldozers and excavators and total stations,” said Rory. “In 2009, after we became more efficient in our efforts to process and recycle materials, we created a spin-off company called Emerald Landscape Supply and opened a retail material yard at our corporate headquarters. “We sell a full line of landscape products to homeowners and landscapers including bark mulches, crushed stone products, patio and retaining wall materials, masonry stone products and more,” he added.

National Home Building Entry In the 1990s, Emerald began performing more commercial site-work and was awarded its first job for a national homebuilder. “On this first project for a national home builder, we only did the lot work and concrete foundations, another grading contractor performed the site cuts to fills, the utility work and the road construction. Nonetheless, this job was one of the most significant milestones in the development of our company,” said Rory. “We had to go from single lot construction to mass production. The steady stream of work that came from this project for nearly a decade was our first real exposure to an anchor job.” On the eve of this job’s completion, Emerald was awarded the first phase of a 600-lot retirement community in the Pine Hills. This project included road and utility construction, sewer and water pump stations, mass grading and lot work. see EMERALD page 6

Giving Back to Community Keeps Company Grounded EMERALD from page 4

“The Pine Hills development has since provided us with a steady influx of work and opportunity. In this one development we work for Pulte Homes, Toll Brothers, Avalon Bay Communities, The Green Company and The Pinehills,” said Rory. “We have since done the site work for similar large scale communities in Marshfield, Mass., South Kingstown, R.I. Pembroke, Lakeville, New Bedford, Hanson and Middleboro, Mass. We also have diversified, performing large commercial grading and site-work projects and specialized construction.” Emerald has dredged the Coast Guard’s boat landing at Graves Light in Boston Harbor, performed the site-work for wind turbines, water storage facilities, wastewater treatment facilities, water and sewer pump stations, seawalls and much more. Emerald’s ‘Heart and Soul’ “Our employees are the heart and soul of any measure of success we have had. Over the years we have accumulated a group of employees that would be envied by any business owner,” said Rory. “As our workforce has grown and improved, we have developed a strong culture of safety, pride, professionalism and performance. Employees of Emerald Excavating are confident, decisive, proud, reliable and involved. “We listen to our employees, take their suggestions, ask for their assistance and advice and rely upon their insights, experiences and expertise. We are truly gifted to have found these men and women and we would have nothing but a parking lot full of equipment without them,” added Rory. Emerald currently employs some 58 people at its headquarters. Loyal longtime employees include Richard Smith, who retired in 2007 after 26 years of service (he was the first employee hired by the founders); cousin Paul Kelleher, site foreman, who has been on the job for 30 years; Ray Martin, lead mechanic since 1985; cousin John Kelleher, private residential division manager who has worked at Emerald for 22 years; Denny Fratus, yard manager who has put in 18 years; and Jeff Florindo, equipment operator, who has worked heavy iron for 14 years. Currently, the company is performing the site work for a new regional distribution center for Sysco Boston in Plympton. “We are mass grading approximately 450,000 cu. yds. of material to bring the site to grade.

Being small enough to fit into lessthan-roomy spaces is great. So is a tremendous amount of power. But if that’s all an excavator has to offer, it will never be a Doosan. Our new smaller, but still powerful, DX140LCR is a workhorse machine built to minimize both downtime and operating costs. It’s easy to maintain with centralized grease points, convenient hose routing

We made our NEW excavator for tight spots. WITHOUT CUTTING ANY CORNERS.

and easy filter replacement. It’s also as durable as a tank, sips fuel and is so comfortable you could almost live in it. Now it’s easy to see that with Doosan, you may be working in close quarters, but you’re never in a tight spot.

Unpredictable Economy Downsizes Crestview’s Projects Flexible Equipment Options Help Company Manage Jobs Large or Small As Whalley Park nears completion, few people are as familiar with the site as Aaron Dziengelewski. He did all of the final grading on the portion of the property that has been cleared. Having flexible equipment options for this project and others has helped Crestview Construction, Inc., a company started 28 years ago by his father, John, and partner, Bernie LeDuc, keep working in today’s unpredictable construction economy. The firm, headquartered in Southwick, Mass., specializes in commercial and residential excavation. Big jobs require big equipment and Crestview has plenty of heavy iron — reserved for work that used to be quite prevalent. More and more, however, the company is relying on its inventory of Bobcat machines and attachments — T190 and T300 compact track loaders, an A300 all-wheel steer Having flexible equipment options for this project and others has helped Crestview Construction, loader and 337, 341 and 435 com- Inc., a company started 28 years ago by his father, John, and partner, Bernie LeDuc, keep workpact excavators — to get work and ing in today’s unpredictable construction economy.

complete jobs efficiently. The machines and attachments were purchased from Bobcat of Greater Springfield. “We don’t always have large jobs these days, but our Bobcat equipment allows us the versatility to take on smaller projects and portions of bigger jobs as well,� Dziengelewski said. “Our Bobcat loaders and excavators are the least expensive machines we own, and for the right kind of work, they are the most costeffective.� Dziengelewski said Bobcat equipment is ideal for projects such as new retail stores and restaurants. “In these settings, larger equipment just wastes your time. We had one grading job inside a foundation where we had to work around a series of pillars. We couldn’t even get our dozer in, so we relied on our T190. It worked great and produced a very accurate grade.� see CRESTVIEW page 9

Fuel-Efficient Fuel costs are another significant factor. “With a Bobcat loader you may use 20 gallons of fuel in a day compared to 70 gallons with a big loader,” he said. “In this economy, that’s important.” He also notes that his company and others have to travel farther these days to get work. “If you have to go a distance it is much easier to transport a Bobcat machine with a trailer and a pickup truck instead of using a big Crestview Construction employee Aaron Dziengelewski prefers his Bobcat compact equipment for big jobs and small jobs. truck and trailer.” The dozers at Crestview Dziengelewski notes that many big- he said. “They are useful on so many Construction aren’t on the job as much ger firms are looking for smaller jobs different sizes of jobs.

BOSTON (AP) The state’s transportation secretary fired a top highway supervisor on Åug. 2 following an investigation into remarks he made when a 110-pound corroded Big Dig light fixture collapsed earlier this year. Secretary Jeffrey Mullan said Aug. 2 that district highway supervisor Helmut Ernst no longer works for the Department of Transportation. Ernst told The Associated Press that he hadn’t had any contact with the department in days and hadn’t officially been notified of his status. He said he learned of his dismissal through press reports. “They still haven’t given me anything in writing,” he said in a brief telephone interview, declining to comment further. Ernst told The Boston Globe in an interview in July that he and other engineers “have been trained not to” put safety concerns into writing, citing litigation that arose from the death of a motorist after a Big Dig ceiling panel collapsed in 2006. Mullan said Ernst wasn’t being fired for talking to the press, but he declined to say why he was being let go, citing personnel confidentiality requirements. “It’s not accurate to say he’s being fired based on comments,” Mullan told reporters. “He’s being fired based on the results of the review that has caused me to conclude that he can no longer serve as the District 6 highway director.” Mullan had announced an investigation following the publication of Ernst’s comments. He said the investigation has now concluded and no one else faces disciplinary action. He also said that the kind of conduct described by Ernst doesn’t occur at the agency. “I think anyone who’s watched the DOT over the past couple years knows we’ve made tremendous efforts to be completely transparent,” Mullan said. “I’m not concerned about that.” Ernst had been on paid leave. Mullan said he tried to work with Ernst to find him

another job in the department but those efforts failed. He said Ernst won’t receive a severance package. Ernst isn’t the first Big Dig official to lose his job as a result of the collapse of the light fixture in February. The failure of inspectors to immediately report the corrosion problem also led Mullan to accept the resignation of former state highway administrator Frank Tramontozzi. The light fixture crashed to the roadway in the Thomas P. Tip O’Neill Tunnel on Feb. 8. No vehicles were hit, and no one was injured. Mullan disclosed the incident at a March 16 news conference. He has said he first learned of an issue in the tunnel by e-mail March 1 but it made no reference to the falling light fixture. He said he learned about the fixture one week later during a regularly scheduled staff briefing. By then, he said, an inspection of the approximately 23,000 other light fixtures in the tunnel was already well under way. Gov. Deval Patrick, who was in England on an overseas trade mission at the time, was told about the incident one day before the news conference. Mullan has since said he should have told Patrick of the problem sooner. Mullan’s future at the Department of Transportation is uncertain. He said in July that he told Patrick in May of his intention to step down this year for personal reasons. Mullan, who earns $150,000 a year as transportation secretary and previously earned $160,000 as head of the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority, didn’t elaborate on what those reasons were, but he has college age children. On Aug. 2, Mullan said he hasn’t made any final decision but he still intends to leave by the end of the year. He declined to say whether his salary is a factor in that decision, but he did say he wanted to spend more time with his family. “Anybody who’s observed my four and a half years of service knows that I’ve given my all and it’s been a tremendous strain on my family and my ability to spend time with my children,” he said.
