Elevated Bypass on Seattle’s SR 99 Almost Done By Irwin Rapoport

Coordination with railway, the Port of Seattle and WSDOT, the city of Seattle, and the consortium building the tunnel is crucial as the bypass provides a solution for multiple problems.

The ongoing construction of the $29.37 million Holgate to King Street project — an h-shaped bridge (elevated bypass) in downtown Seattle, Wash. — is expected to be complete next March and is part of the ongoing work to build the Alaska Way Tunnel. The 1,428-ft. (435 m) long bypass is being built by Guy F. Atkinson Construction LLC. Actual construction began on July 12, 2012 following several months of serious planning as the project crosses the busy SR 99 freeway, railroad tail track operated by the Burlington Northern and Santa Fe Railway (BNSF), and is adjacent to the Port of Seattle and its cargo container yard Terminal 46, the

Century Link Stadium (home of the Seattle Seahawks), the Safeco field (home of the Seattle Mariners), and the work site for the Alaska Way Tunnel.

“They call our job the gateway to the tunnel,” said Ma Ma, Atkinson’s project manager. “When a train goes by, the whole area stops. When completed, the

bypass will eliminate traffic interruptions for the public and the port. We’re building a two-lane bridge with three approaches.” The bypass, designed by the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) and built for WSDOT, is being integrated into the existing road infrastructure. The challenges for the concrete bypass are many, including a combination of cast-in-place box girder and the installation of precast tub girders for the lengths of the “h,” which were spliced with top girders. When completed, 15,000 cu. yds. (11,468 cu m) of concrete will have been used, along with 1,500 tons (1,361 t) of reinforcing steel, 530,000 linear ft. (161,544 m) of prestressing steel, and 2,200 linear ft. (671 m) of prestressed concrete see BYPASS page 50

ELFA’s MLFI-25 Reports Industry Remains Increased Business Volume Fragile Despite Job The Equipment Leasing and Finance Association’s (ELFA) Monthly Leasing and Finance Index (MLFI-25), which reports economic activity from 25 companies representing a cross section of the $827 billion equipment finance sector, showed its overall new business volume for November was $6.6 billion, up 3 percent from new business volume in November 2012. Month-over-month, new business volume was down 13 percent from October. Year to date, cumulative new business volume increased 5 percent compared to 2012. Receivables over 30 days were at 1.8 percent in November, up slightly from 1.5 percent in October. Delinquencies declined from 2 percent in the same period in 2012. Charge-offs declined to once again match the all-time low of 0.3 per-

cent from 0.4 percent the previous month. Credit approvals totaled 76.5 percent in November, a slight decrease from 77.6 percent the previous month. Forty-seven percent of participating organizations reported submitting more transactions for approval during October, a level more in line with previous months’ activity after a spike to 82 percent last month. Finally, total headcount for equipment finance companies was up 1.4 percent year over year. Separately, the Equipment Leasing & Finance Foundation’s Monthly Confidence Index (MCI-EFI) for December is 55.8, a decrease from the November index of 56.9, reflecting industry concerns over uncertainty regarding capital expenditures (capex) see SURVEY page 32

Gains, Analysts Say By Lori Tobias CEG CORRESPONDENT

Thirty-nine states posted gains in construction jobs over the past year, but analysts say the industry remains fragile. “We think the market is soft,” said Brian Turmail, spokesman of The Associated General Contractors of America. “Private sector demand is getting weak and employment gains can be fleeting.” That concern was underscored by Mississippi, which led the country with a 17-percent increase, or 8,000 jobs, over 2012. Nonetheless, the southern state lost more than 2 percent — 1,300 — of those jobs from October to November, placing it at 49th out 50 states for growth. Conversely, Indiana led the monthly rankings with a 4.8 percent increase — 5,400 construction jobs — but saw a see JOBS page 51

Heavy Equipment Tech…

Alamo Academies to Add 2014 Track The Alamo Area Academies Inc. board and the Alamo Colleges board of trustees approved addressing the emerging demand of heavy equipment technicians via a new academy track slated to begin classes in August 2014. Holt CAT, ASCO, ROMCO, RDO, Zachry Construction, Dean Word Co., Martin Marietta and other heavy equipment dealers and construction businesses initiated a coalition with the Alamo Academies to start the fifth Academy. The new track will provide a tuition-free college pathway for high school juniors and seniors to attain industry and academic certificates that lead to solid opportunities in the job market and address critical workforce industry needs. The heavy equipment technician curriculum will provide students with career exploration information, hands-on learning experiences, job specific training, paid internships and college credit coursework designed to assist them in making an informed career decision and to prepare them for future employment. “One of the biggest problems for heavy equipment dealers and their customers is a shortage of qualified technicians. This new track at Alamo Academies will help supply our industry with a steady stream of technicians equipped with the skills required for entry level jobs at good wages and benefits,” said Peter John Holt, general service manager of Holt CAT. Holt CAT hosted a consortium of heavy equipment industry businesses on Sept. 26, to discuss the new Heavy Equipment Academy and determine the new curriculum. From this meeting, the Consortium determined that two Level I Certificates of Completion aligned to the diesel/construction equipment technology associate of applied science degree would be appropriate and will aim to meet local industry’s needs. Graduates will possess the college education credit and industry certificates, along with work experience for the high tech skill sets required by the high-demand heavy equipment industry. “The success we have had in developing skilled employees for aerospace, manufacturing, IT and health will now be extended to a fifth academy to meet the demand for heavy equipment technicians. Area high school students now have a new option for college credit, internships and industry certificates that will prepare them for good paying, high demand jobs,” said Jim Perschbach, chairman of the Alamo Area Academies board. The Alamo Area Academies is a national award winning not-for-profit organization that uses innovative, STEMbased instructional models. Alamo Academies works in partnership with the Alamo Colleges, San Antonio area high schools, industry and the cities of San Antonio, New Braunfels and Seguin to provide area youth with tuition-free career pathways into critical demand technical STEM occupations. The program utilizes contextualized industry-driven curriculum resulting in 94 percent of graduates entering higher education or high-wage careers in aerospace, manufacturing, information technology, health and now the heavy equipment industry starting in August 2014.

Popular JCB CEO Bows Out After Almost 25 Years of Service Colleagues have bid a fond farewell to JCB Chief Executive Officer Alan Blake who is retiring from the company after almost a quarter of a century of service. Blake will remain as an advisor to JCB. Blake became JCB CEO on Jan. 1, 2010, making him only the fifth person to hold the position in JCB's history. Dozens of friends and colleagues gathered at the World HQ in Rocester to say goodbye at a special presentation. Chief Executive Officer Designate Graeme Macdonald will take over as CEO on Jan. 1. “Alan has contributed a huge amount to the growth and success of JCB over many years,” Macdonald said. “The expansion projects Alan led enabled JCB to double its production from 36,000 to 72,000 machines over a five year period. “In addition to his vast achievements at JCB, he will also be remembered for his humility and for making time to speak to everyone, no matter what their rank or position and that’s something we are all going to miss. “On behalf of the 11,000 JCB employees around the world, our dealers and customers, we wish him a very long and happy retirement.”

JCB CEO, Alan Blake (C, front) with his wife Diane at his retirement presentation.

“Coming to JCB was one of the best decisions of my life,” Blake said. “The breadth and width of what you can learn here is enormous, and the opportunity to achieve great things is endless. “I have been fortunate to have a great career here and one that has coincided with the global growth of the company. I have

met and worked with some truly brilliant people all around the world and I will never forget my time at JCB.” Blake joined JCB in 1989 from Somersetbased Westland Helicopters after a distinguished 19-year tenure at the company, which saw him rise through the ranks from apprentice to head of Helicopter

Transmissions. He joined JCB Transmissions in Wrexham in 1989 as operations director with responsibility for developing new transmissions for two of JCB’s two key products: the backhoe loader and Loadall telescopic handler. In 1995 he was promoted to managing director of JCB Transmissions and led the company through an unprecedented period of growth which saw the doubling of production capacity with the opening of a second plant at the Wrexham site. In 2000, Blake was appointed managing director of JCB Service with the task of maximizing JCB’s reputation for excellent customer service as the company rapidly expanded its dealer network and customer base in new and expanding territories. In 2003, he became group manufacturing director, making him responsible for JCB’s global production operations. Blake led the biggest expansion and investment program in the company’s history. Blake became JCB’s chief operating officer in 2009 before taking up his current position.

Technology Saves Time, Money for Oregon Mainline Paving Milling and repaving 19 mi. (30.6 km) of I-84, Baldock Slough — South Baker Interchange section located in Baker City, Oregon, took 50 percent less worker hours, 50 percent less machine time and 50 percent less costs. “We chopped 50 percent off the contract schedule,” said Jim Swenson, licensed professional land surveyor of Oregon Mainline Paving based in McMinnville, Ore. The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) project had a $17.9 million contract value and Oregon Mainline Paving was the general contractor on the project. The I-84 project involved two eastbound and two westbound lanes. When completed, it is expected to improve travel on a stretch that was originally part of the Oregon Trail, which was the 2,000-mi. (3,219 km) historic east-west wagon route and emigrant trail that connected the Missouri River to valleys in Oregon and locations in between. “The project was completed a year ahead of the two-year schedule,” Swenson said. “We finished the project so quickly due to long hours of hard work and our use of machine control technology.” Despite its premature completion, the I-84, Baldock Slough — South Baker Interchange project came with challenges. “ODOT has implemented different surfaces for the fast and slow lanes on two-lane interstates,” said Swenson. “The fast lane has an asphalt finished surface while the right-hand lane is concrete, plus there are asphalt shoulder lanes flanking both lanes.” ODOT took the existing road surface profile but didn’t mimic that surface exactly. Instead of going all the way down to subgrade and building it back, it is requiring Oregon Mainline Paving to grind off the existing asphalt to establish the bottom for the new road surfaces. “In the concrete lane, we were milling eight to 10 inches, and then there were some short bridge sections where we actually went down a foot,” Swenson said. “For the fast lane surface we were milling two to four inches, the fast lane shoulder we milled zero to two

Then, the blockout was ground and white paved. After the white paving was complete the remainder of the eastbound side was paved, traffic switched back to the Stage I configuration and the crossovers were torn out and reconstructed to accommodate traffic being on the westbound freeway and crossing the under-construction eastbound freeway. This work had to be complete by the fourth of July. Oregon Mainline Paving began grinding the eastbound freeway on July 6 and finished grinding the eastbound freeway on Aug. 9. The company completed the 9.5 mi. (15.3 km) in 24 days of grinding. Paved concrete and asphalt were placed using Blaw Knox 220 and 5510 pavers. Oregon Mainline Paving easily met the Sept. 30 top-lift paving cutoff date set by ODOT for the state of Oregon.

Kenworth T680 Delivers Customer Best of Both Worlds CEO Rick Williams of Central Oregon Truck Company (COTC) has discovered that he can have the best of both worlds. Williams said the performance of the Kenworth T680 equipped with a 76-in. sleeper and a 455-hp PACCAR MX-13 engine taught him that he didn’t have to sacrifice performance for fuel and weight savings by choosing a 13-L engine over a 15-L engine. Not even when his company’s trucks haul opendeck, specialized or over-sized loads over mountain passes in the West. Williams said COTC instead got a big helping of fuel economy savings and comparable power and torque performance when compared to the results of trucks equipped with 15-L engines. In fact, results of the company’s test of Kenworth T680s with 76-in. sleepers and the PACCAR MX-13 engine convinced Williams to order 56 of them to replace older models. Central Oregon Truck Company generally replaces its trucks when they reach 550,000 miles. “Our tests show that we’re getting a half-mile per gallon fuel economy improvement with a T680 equipped with the PACCAR MX-13 engine pulling roll-top and curtain vans compared to the performance of our older Kenworth T660s equipped with the 15-liter Cummins ISX engine pulling the same size loads,” Williams said. “That improvement convinced me that buying more of the T680s now would actually save us money over the long-term. That’s why we changed delivery dates to this year versus next year for many of these trucks.” The “uber responsive” dealer support from Papé KenworthRedmond in Oregon for the PACCAR MX-13 engine also helped

seal the deal, Williams added. “From a cab configuration, the T680 offers our driving team members more comfortable amenities with a standard 76-inch sleeper and a wider cab,” he said. Williams refers to his company’s drivers as driving team members because he believes the description more accurately reflects the importance of these employees to his company. It’s also why he cares what they think of the equipment his company chooses for them to drive. “Our driving team members say the T680’s triple-sealed doors and acoustic treatments make for a quiet ride,” Williams said. “They tell us that driving the T680 is more like driving a car. They also like the improved visibility that comes from the T680’s panoramic windshield and they really like the rotating passenger seat and the rotating table that they can use to fill out their paperwork during their breaks. “The positive response of our driving team members to the T680’s powertrain performance has offered the best feedback,” Williams added. “They tell us that the 455-hp PACCAR MX-13 engine is not overburdened by the

kind of driving they have to do, even when they’re hauling heavy loads and topping out at 105,500 GVW. Out west, we pull loads over more hills. So, we need a truck with an engine that provides the power we need.” The PACCAR MX-13 engine, which comes standard with the T680, offers comparable pulling capacity and torque to the Cummins ISX, Williams said. “The T680 equipped with a fullheight sleeper and PACCAR MX13 engine pulling roll-top and curtain vans even gave us a nice fuel economy advantage over a test Kenworth T660 unit equipped with a 62-inch mid-roof sleeper and PACCAR MX engine pulling the same loads.” Designed for linehaul and vocational heavy duty truck operators, the PACCAR MX-13 utilizes the latest common rail fuel-delivery technology, which enables injection pressures of up to 2,500 bar significantly enhancing fuel efficiency and performance. The common rail system uses controls to regulate the fuel in a central manifold, only compressing the amount of fuel mixture needed. The result is finer fuel atomization for optimized combustion, enabling lower

fuel consumption and emissions, according to the company. “The aerodynamics of the T680 combined with the performance of the PACCAR MX-13 engine convinced us to adopt the T680 with the 76-inch sleeper as our company’s new platform Kenworth model,” Williams added. Central Oregon Truck Co. hauls building materials, heavy equipment and other loads for major manufacturers of building products in the lower 48 states and Canada. It is a part of the Addison, Texasbased Daseke family of opendeck/specialized transportation companies. Williams attributes his company’s success to a laser-like focus on every performance aspect of the company’s all-Kenworth fleet of 215 trucks. The company keeps close tabs on vehicle performance and governs the engines to 62 mph. Idling is limited and drivers are encouraged to check tire pressures regularly. In addition to the improved fuel economy, Williams said the T680 model equipped with the PACCAR MX-13 engine also offers his company the ability to provide driving team members more amenities for greater comfort without concerns over potential weight

penalties. The PACCAR MX-13 engine is 300 lbs. lighter than the 15-L Cummins ISX engine. “In open-deck operations, weight is a huge concern,” Williams said. “Shippers hire us expecting our trucks to be able to haul between 48,000 and 49,000 pounds. Whenever we spec our trucks, we have to keep that constantly top of mind. If we can’t haul 48,000 to 49,000 pounds because of the additional weight of the amenities we’ve chosen to attract and retain driving team members, then why would they hire us?” For more information, visit www.kenworth.com.

Peterbilt...

All Makes Aero Clad Bumper Available for 367, 587 Models Hendrickson Bumper and Trim officials released new All Makes Aero Clad bumpers for the Peterbilt Model 367 and Model 587 trucks. The Aero Clad Peterbilt Model 367 and Model 587 bumpers are another addition to the All Makes aftermarket bumper program from Hendrickson. Aero Clad bumpers offer weight savings with a bright mirror-like finish and are more durable than traditional chrome metal bumpers, according to the manufacturer. The Peterbilt Model 587 bumper in Aero Clad offers additional 2.8 in. (7 cm) of ground clearance making it less susceptible to damage caused by curbs, ramps and snow drifts, compared to the factory supplied bumper option. Peterbilt Model 367 bumpers in Aero Clad offers a 26 lb. (11.8 kg) weight savings compared to the steel OEM bumper option. In addition to weight advantages, Aero Clad bumpers also are corrosion resistant. The bright mirrored finished of Aero Clad will

not pit, fade or crack like chrome plated bumpers. In addition, Aero Clad doesn’t require “touch ups” like painted bumpers, which results in less maintenance. Aero Clad is a bi-metal material that bonds stainless steel and aluminum at a molecular level. The result is mirror-like finish that will not rust, peel or fade over time. In addition, the material is much lighter than traditional steel bumpers while maintaining higher yield strength producing a bumper with the utmost durability. Hendrickson backs the durability and quality of Aero Clad with a five-year limited warranty. Peterbilt Model 367 and Model 587 bumpers in Aero Clad are available through the Hendrickson All Makes Program and can be purchased through Peterbilt dealers. For more information, call 800/356-6737 or visit www.hendrickson-intl.com. (This story also can be found on Construction Equipment Guide’s Web site at www.constructionequipmentguide.com.)

Equipment-Mounted Drills Offer Productive Solution E-Z Drill’s Model 210 equipment-mounted concrete drill attachment series consists of three models: the three-gang Model 210-3 EQ MT, four-gang Model 210-4 EQ MT and five-gang Model 210-5 EQ MT. The series is compatible with most models of backhoes and excavators. The pneumatic drills offer specially designed features for maximum productivity and reduced maintenance, making them practical for full-depth road repair and patching projects, according to the manufacturer. A user-friendly, easily accessible control panel is mounted on the drill to provide convenient operation from the ground. The units are capable of drilling 5/8- to 2 ½-in. (1.6 to 6.3 cm) diameter holes, at a depth of 18 in. (45.7 cm). Each individual drill motor requires a minimum of 100 cfm (2.8 cu m/min) for operation, with a minimum of 300 cfm (8.4 cu m/min)

required to power the smallest unit in the series, the three-gang Model 210-3 EQ MT. To reduce air compressor requirements, an optional 120-gal. air tank is available. Designed for quick, precise drill positioning, the 210 EQ MT drills feature a side-shift control. In contrast to similar equipment-mounted drills, the carrier operator is not required to position the unit in the exact drilling location. The drill must simply be placed in close proximity to the specified drilling area, then can be quickly and easily adjusted to the target location with a toggle switch found on the control panel. The side-shift feature further enhances productivity by allowing a second set of holes to be drilled without the need to move the drill, backhoe or excavator, provided holes are specified on 12-in. (30.5 cm) centers. Simply set the drill spacing at 24-in. (61 cm), drill one set of holes, and engage the side-

shift. The unit will quickly and precisely move 12-in. to drill the second set, all without repositioning the drill or carrier. Drill spacing is adjustable up to 24-in., and the drills offer lateral travel up to 14-in. (35.5 cm). To reduce operator effort and increase holedrilling speed, the drills feature a “floating” bucket curl pin. By providing the pin with a small range of motion, the drill automatically levels itself, eliminating the tedious and timeconsuming process of manually leveling and positioning the drill with each movement. For added convenience and productivity, the 210 EQ MT drills feature 360-degree rotation, which allows quick repositioning for drilling within the same patch. To enhance operator safety, the rotat-

ing feature includes a safety swivel lock. With the simple flip of a switch, the lock is activated and the drill is secured into place, ensuring safe transport and preventing potential harm to the operator. A number of features have been incorporated into the 210 EQ MT drills to enhance durability and extend service life. Multi-point oil injection allows each drill to be lubricated individually from a single reservoir, ensuring each drill

always has the proper amount of oil. This reduces wear on the motor and is more effective than a central oiling system, which doesn’t offer individual lubrication points. An automatic drill shut-off further extends individual drill life by preventing dry-firing. The 210 EQ MT drills offer extra height adjustment, providing access to the center of a slab, even in extreme asphalt overlay conditions. To offer a complete system, a full line of drill bits and drill steel is available. For more information, call 800/272-0121 or visit www.ezdrill.com.

Blastcrete Attachment Features Hydraulic Squeeze Pump Blastcrete Equipment Company, manufacturer of concrete mixers, pumps and related products, offers the Model RD6536 skid steer pump attachment. Featuring a universal design compatible with any skid steer, the 3-in. (7.6 cm) hydraulic squeeze pump is ideal for ICF, block fill, form and pour, driveways, basements and various shotcrete applications. With the ability to pump grout materials, 3/8-in. (.95 cm) shotcrete and 3/4-in. (1.9 cm) structural concrete mixes, the RD6536 is a fast, efficient solution for contractors performing a variety of con-

crete and shotcrete applications. The unit offers a variable speed of 0 to 25 cu. yds. (0 to 19 cu m) per hour. Vertical pumping distance reaches 50 ft. (15 m) with the use of a rubber delivery line, while hor-

izontal distance can reach up to 250 ft. (76 m). A hydraulic agitator is included in the receiving hopper. The agitator’s continuous motion keeps the mix well blended, ensuring aggregate and sand stay evenly suspended throughout the mix. Not only does this result in high-strength concrete, it keeps the aggregate and sand from settling to the bottom of the hopper and clogging near the suction area. To relieve pressure build-up clogs and eliminate potential damage to the pump, the RD6536 can be run in both forward and reverse. Hydraulically powered controls

are located on the pump and also operate both agitator and pump speed. The RD6536 weighs in at 2,700 lbs. (1,225 kg) and hydraulic oil requirement is 18 gpm (68 Lpm) at 3,000 psi. The 48-in. (122 cm) wide frame (55-in. [140 cm] with receiving hopper) is designed to be narrow enough to fit between the wheel wells of most standard work trucks. The unit includes forklift pockets to allow quick and easy loading and unloading from the transport vehicle. Maintenance requirements for the RD6536 are simple and take just minutes. The steel-constructed unit is designed to prevent any concrete from coming in contact

with the pump’s moving parts, further reducing maintenance concerns and ensuring a long service life. The primary wear part, the rubber pumping tube, can be easily replaced on the job site in about 20 minutes. And unlike other types of concrete pumps, cleanup on the RD6536 squeeze pump is fast and hassle-free. Using just water and a sponge ball, the pump can be cleaned out in approximately 5 minutes. For more information, call 800/235-4867 or visit www.blastcrete.com. (This story also can be found on Construction Equipment Guide’s Web site at www.constructionequipmentguide.com.)

Bradco Tree, Shrub Grapple Makes Digging Jobs Quicker, Cleaner, Safer

Unlike traditional screw-on spikes, the Terramac bolton, bolt-off cleats do not harm the track in any way.

Terramac Reveals RT9 Custom-Made, Removeable Cleats The tree and shrub grapple attachment reduces job time by effectively removing the whole plant, including the stump, tap and secondary root system, in one simple step.

The Bradco tree and shrub grapple by Paladin Attachments is the newest addition to Paladin’s grapple selection. It is designed to make some of the hardest tasks in landscaping quicker, cleaner and safer, according to the manufacturer. Mounted on versatile compact tool carriers, the tree and shrub grapple can easily remove small trees, shrubs, ornamentals and small stumps — even in tight spaces. A hydraulically-powered alternative to shovels, axes, chains, or stump grinders, the tree and shrub grapple attachment reduces job time by effectively removing the whole plant, including the stump, tap and secondary root system, in one simple step. In addition to being easy to use, the tree and

shrub grapple keeps clean up to a minimum by leaving dirt, gravel, mulch, etc. in place with minimal disruption to the removal site, which can often be cleaned up with just a broom. Paladin recently put the tree and shrub grapple to the test on a residential condominium project. In just three hours the contractor was able to cleanly remove more than fifty small trees and shrubs with no damage to the surrounding vegetation, residential structures, irrigation systems or decorative garden materials. A job that would typically have required a two-man crew several days to complete with conventional tools was easily condensed into a few hours allowing the contractor to quickly finish this project and move on to the next, according to the manufacturer. The tree and shrub grapple is constructed of half-inch (1.3 cm) AR 400 and AR 235 high-strength steel for maximum durability for years to come. The grapple attachment weighs 185 lbs. (84 kg) with a maximum working pressure (PSI) of 3,000 pounds to tackle the toughest applications. There are many other uses for the tree and shrub grapple attachment, including breaking up and removing asphalt driveways and removing small stumps and other appropriately sized materials. For more information, call 800/456-7100 or visit www.paladinattachments.com. (This story also can be found on Construction Equipment Guide’s Web site at www.constructionequipmentguide.com.)

Terramac LLC has introduced custom-made, removable cleats for its RT9 rubber track crawler carrier. The steel cleats provide a solution for contractors working in icy or snow-covered mountainous terrain, on extremely muddy ground or whenever additional traction is required. “A customer was using the Terramac RT9 carrier on a pipeline job out east,” said Mike Crimaldi, president of Terramac LLC. “In the winter, the snow gets packed into the tracks and makes it tough to get up steep inclines. Our team got together and created steel cleats that provide traction and are easy to install.” Unlike traditional screw-on spikes, the bolt-on, boltoff cleats do not harm the track in any way. “We designed these cleats knowing that there may be a situation where the cleat is binding,” said Terramac service manager Joey Giannetto. “A different grade bolt was used to allow the bolt to shear. This not only protects the track, but reduces cost and downtime for the customer.” Contractors are able to add or remove the cleats themselves in about an hour depending on the quantity. It is recommended that 16 cleats be installed on each track, with a minimum of eight per track. The new cleats and other parts and services for the Terramac rubber track crawler carrier are available from Terramac distributor Rig Source Inc., of Elburn, Ill. Rental units also are available.

Harnessing The Sun...

John Wesley Miller Unveils ‘Latest, Greatest’ Energy Home By Tom Beal ARIZONA DAILY STAR

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) John Wesley Miller uses the words “latest and greatest’’ to describe the features and fixtures in the “netzero’’ energy home he is unveiling at his Armory Park del Sol subdivision, but the bones of the building are old-school block and cement. The reason is simple. The laws of thermodynamics haven’t changed since Miller began harnessing the sun to heat his buildings more than 40 years ago. “Heat always travels toward cold,’’ Miller said recently as he described how the walls of this, the most efficient home he’s ever built, act as “thermal-mass storage.’’ All the voids in the block are filled, creating mass to hold in the cold in summer and the warmth in winter — with the exterior wrapped in insulation and coated with three layers of stucco.

“The name of the game in solar is control. You keep what’s going on on the inside inside,’’ he said. “What’s really important is making sure you have the envelope right. Then you can put all the bells and whistles on,’’ said architect Hank Krzysik, who first worked with Miller at Biosphere 2 in the late 1980s. Miller has learned (and taught) a few tricks over the years, but the basic envelope of a home is what makes everything else work, he said. For this “Vision House’’ at 413 S. Third Ave., Miller teamed with Green Builder Media to create a showcase for recycled building materials, energy-efficient appliances and an experimental heatingcooling system, all powered by an array of photovoltaic panels that will generate 7.2 kW of electricity at peak. Two rooftop solar water heaters feed a 150-gal. tank that preheats outside air in winter and provides

hot water. Russett Southwest Corp., which provided the heatingcooling system, will monitor its performance. Once all the systems are operating and tested, they will meet or surpass the highest standards of local and regional green-building codes, said Krzysik. Solar panels will easily produce more energy than the home consumes, he said. “It’s amazing what can be done when we think sustainably and act accordingly,’’ said Krzysik. For Miller, Vision House is the capstone of his “recycled’’ subdivision at the eastern edge of downtown’s Armory Park neighborhood, where the Southern Pacific Railroad once housed its workers, close by the tracks and yard. Armory Park del Sol, which opened in 2001, was planned as a 99-home neighborhood of solarpowered homes. Three owners bought double lots. This is the 95th home built and only one lot remains.

This house has all the bells and whistles of the sustainable building movement: recycled-glass countertops, electric-vehicle recharging station in the garage, 520-gal. rainwater catchment, lifetime cement shingles and remotely controlled appliances. The price, $888,000 for 2,500 sq. ft. of living area and a double garage, reflects the quality of the construction and the “latest and greatest’’ contents. Projects such as Miller’s “infill energy-efficient development is exactly what we need to be focusing on,’’ said Rich Franz-Under, manager of Pima County’s Green Building Program. Miller has led by example, he said, in his new housing and his energy-saving retrofits. “It’s a way to start to shift people’s understanding of what is the true cost of homeownership. Most people don’t take into account their utility bills when they think about the cost of building. John has been

a leader both locally and nationally in this for many, many years.’’ Miller began building passive solar structures with friend and colleague Carl Hodges at the University of Arizona’s Environmental Research Lab in 1973 and later that decade managed construction at environmentally friendly Biosphere 2. In 1981, he organized the first Solar Parade of Homes for the Southern Arizona Home Builders Association and was involved in the Tucson Solar Village concept that grew into the new-urban community of Civano in southeast Tucson. He was a member of the committee that devised a green-building code for the National Association of Home Builders.

Activity Continues to Trend Positively SURVEY from page 1

and competitive market pressures in 2014, among other issues. ELFA President and CEO William G. Sutton said: “Overall new business activity in the equipment finance sector continues to trend positively, despite some softness in November compared to late-summer and early-fall performance. Year-to-date volume also is encouraging as we head into the final month of the year, which is typically a strong period for the sector. Fiscal pressures seem to be dissipating as well with the U.S. Congress agreeing on a two-year budget, which should lessen the chance of any potential government shutdown and provide a measure of comfort to U.S. businesses trying to make planning decisions for the coming year and beyond. Credit quality continues its strong showing, notwithstanding a slight uptick in November delinquencies.” Christopher Enbom, CEO and chairman, Allegiant Partners Incorporated, said, “The continued growth in equipment finance from the previous year shows continued strength in the economy and in equipment spending. The numbers are especially good considering the fact there were fewer working days in November 2013 than 2012. We are expecting a strong 2014 in the small company segment we serve. The budget deal is increasing stability and has boosted our forecast for next year.” For more information, visit www.elfaonline.org.

Six new jaw sets have been designed to take on any demolition job.

Cat Multi-Processors Handle Wide Range of Demolition Jobs Caterpillar Work Tools is introduc- The Cat MP318 and MP324 multi-processors ing a new generation of multi-proces- can have jaws installed or changed in as sors for Cat hydraulic excavators. The little as 10 minutes. Cat MP318 and MP324 multi-processors can handle virtually any demolition job simply by using the basic housing and a choice of up to six available jaw sets, according to the manufacturer. The new multi-processor design builds on the success of its predecessor. It features an efficient weight-topower ratio and a strong cutting and crushing capability. The strong rotator provides a continuous 360-degree rotation that allows the operator to carry out the demolition job quickly and precisely from any angle. Each multi-processor can be equipped with a wide selection of interchangeable jaws: concrete cutter (CC), demolition (D), pulverizer (P), shear (S), universal (U), and tank shear (TS). can accomplish most tasks encountered on a With one common housing and properly demolition job. The various jaws can be selected sets of jaws a contractor can achieve quickly installed or changed, due to a new flexibility with minimum investment and jaw locking system. Instead of taking about

45 minutes to change the jaws with the previous series, it now takes only 10 minutes. Basic tools are all that is needed, according to the manufacturer.

Caterpillar has made maintenance easier, too. The new jaws use bolt-on and pin-on wear material to eliminate almost all need to weld the jaws. Keeping a jaw set in good repair has never been easier and can be done on site in a matter of hours. Protection for hydraulic components and hoses has been increased, and an improved motor guard gives greater motor protection. Also, access to the cylinder has been made easier and the cylinder rod protection has been optimized. The number of greasing points has been reduced so servicing becomes easy. Daily maintenance requires only greasing, checking wear and replacing any worn parts. The multi-processors are fully supported by Cat dealers so that customers can order parts and service for machines and work tools from a single source.

It was still a tight fit and a pre-staging plan needed to be developed to determine where equipment such as cranes would be placed, how equipment would be moved about, where to place materials for immediate use and for delivery schedules.

For the bypass, Atkinson has brought in several Link Belt rough-terrain RTC8065 cranes, Manitowoc Model 2892C 28-ton (25.4 t) boom trucks, several Ingersoll Rand VR-1056C forklifts, several F-150 (vehicles), and several F-450 (vehicles).

Study Finds Biggest Driver of Jobs to Be Residential Work JOBS from page 1

3.4 percent decline or about 4,100 jobs over last year. California added 31, 500 jobs for an increase of 5.2 percent. But even that is a mixed picture. “They top the list in total jobs added,” Turmail said. “But it’s a tale of two markets. In coastal California, you can’t even find enough workers But when you get into that central valley, it’s still kind of sleepy.” Other states reporting good news include Connecticut with an 11 percent increase, Missouri, at 9.8 percent, and Georgia, which added, 13, 200 jobs. “Connecticut is a bit of a surprise,” Turmail said. “New England — outside of Boston — has had a harder time getting into a recovery.” Montana also was a surprise, but not a good one, Turmail said. Construction managers report work is good, with a lot of new construction activity on the east side of the state. But the data, as reported by the Labor Department, indicates the state is still losing construction jobs. For the month, 30 states added construction jobs, 16 lost jobs, while employment stayed steady in four states. The biggest driver of the jobs was residential construction, both in the single- and multi-family markets. Activity in the energy sector was also up, as was, surprisingly, the lodging industry. “There was a lot of renovation of facilities,” Turmail said. “In 2006 through 2008 when money was very cheap, there was a lot of hotel construction. There was so much overbuilt hotel capacity. What we’re seeing now is either hotel owners upgrading or putting money back in and renovating them and keeping them competitive as opposed to building new hotels from scratch.” But all that good news is undermined by declines in other areas, like retail and office space. The trend toward on-line retailing has dampened the demand for new retail space, while teleworking is shrinking the footprint for office space and will weaken demand for new space even as employers add employees. There also was a surprise spike in public spending, but analysts don’t expect to see that again. On the contrary, public spending has been trending down. “The federal government is not pumping as much money into public works,” Turmail said. “State and local spending will continue to be weak, but as the economy improves you will see a lot more municipal spending. You can expect to see increased construction in schools, fire departments and police stations, but that’s probably later next year.” The ACG again urged Congress and President Obama to finalize water resources legislation and to act swiftly to renew long-term highway and transit legislation. “At this point, it is hard to predict whether construction employment will continue to expand in many states next year,” said Stephen E. Sandherr, the association’s chief executive officer. “Passing vital infrastructure measures will help protect construction employers from any softening in private sector demand, while giving the economy a needed boost.” For the ranking of each state, visit http://www.agc.org/galleries/default-file/State%20Empl%20201311%20rank.pdf.

Alaska Way Job Requires Road Access for Heavy Vehicles BYPASS from page 50

properly anticipated and implemented. “They know that they can contact us any time with concerns and that we will respond rapidly,” said Ma. “The BNSF and the Port of Seattle are helping us a lot. We are constantly trying to do a good job as everyone has the same goal — open the bridge as soon as possible, as was the case for the falsework removal operation.” The Alaska Way (SR 99 Tunnel — Design-Build Project) being constructed by Seattle Tunnel Partners, a joint-venture of Dragados USA and Tutor-Perini Corp., requires road access for a variety of heavy vehicles to access the tunnel via the haul route and this meant passing through areas where the falsework was installed and removed. “We planned the falsework to accommodate their trucks and drive by the bridge daily,” said Ma. “We meet with Tutor-Perini officials every two weeks and they know what we are doing at all times. We’re in constant communication. As long as you let people know what is going on, there are no surprises. Open communication is the key.”

Atkinson did not purchase any equipment for this project. The company, based in Denver, maintains fleets of vehicles and equipment in several key centers. For the bypass, Atkinson has brought in several Link Belt rough terrain RTC8065 cranes, Manitowoc Model 2892C 28-ton (25.4 t) boom trucks, several Ingersoll Rand VR1056C forklifts, several F-150 (vehicles), and several F-450 (vehicles). Ma does not have any onsite mechanics, but has access to Atkinson mechanics who visit a number of area construction sites on a regular basis for scheduled maintenance and unexpected breakdowns. For the cranes, Ma has access to dealers for repairs and for the forklifts, various vehicles and machinery, the company’s mechanics. “They come in for the typical repairs,” he said. “The forklifts experience a lot of flat tires and hydraulic chords snap. Right now I have four forklifts on site and we recently had one down, but were able to continue on schedule. The stripping work can take its toll.” He added that his superintendent handles equipment issues and deals with the

operators, who each day must do a thorough inspection of the vehicles and equipment they use, which includes filling in a daily report and a 360 walkaround the equipment. “This way defects and problems are reported and the superintendent can take care of it and call in the mechanics,” said Ma. Atkinson has set aside space for spare parts, the storage of fuel and oils, and repairs. Ma said the bypass project is valuable in terms of experience. “We are learning a lot,” he said. “This is probably the most complicated bridge I’ve ever built in my lifetime and it’s the same for a lot of the people involved. The concrete work is pretty complicated as the bridge is on a big curve with high radiuses and trying to accommodate that requires a lot of engineering and a lot of thinking outside the box to get it done.” (This story also can be found on Construction Equipment Guide’s Web site at www.constructionequipmentguide.com.)

The ongoing construction of the $29.37 million Holgate to King Street project — an h-shaped bridge (elevated bypass) in downtown Seattle, Wash. — is expected to be complete next March and is part of the ongoing work to build the Alaska Way Tunnel.

The bypass, designed by the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) and built for WSDOT, is being integrated into the existing road infrastructure.

Trimble Allows for Early I-84 Hyundai Heavy Sends Aid to Job Completion By Two Years Philippines Typhoon Victims

Hyundai Heavy Industries Group, effort is in line with the support rendered for Hyundai Construction Equipment’s parent several other recent natural disasters in company, recently made a donation of Brazil, Japan, China and Haiti. (This story also can be found on $200,000 via the Korean Red Cross in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan, which caused cat- Construction Equipment Guide’s Web site at astrophic damage to the Philippines.

in. (2.2 m) drum. The cross section required the grinder to make nine passes across the roadbed. It could have been completed in seven passes, but two additional passes were required in the 9-in. (22.9 cm) deep section. “We wanted to grind from the lesser depths to the deepest so we wouldn’t leave ground asphalt behind,” Swenson said. “Performing this milling task over a 9.5 mile project, 19 miles of roadway, with additional milling to 12-inch depth in the concrete portion at the starting end and the bridges for the sleeper slabs and anchors was definitely a challenge.” Once the milling was completed, Oregon Mainline Paving used 62,000 tons (56,245 t) of asphalt and 154,000 sq. yds. (128,764 sq m) of concrete at 9 in. (22.9 cm) thick to pave the road. “It was tremendously important to have an accurate milled surface for the paving,” said Swenson. “Our pay depends on the IRI (International Roughness Index) score, which Oregon requires a score of 45. On this project, we were significantly below that mark at 35. Additionally, ODOT has a zero-

out-of-tolerance expectation and measures concrete depth randomly, but always within a 200-ft. (61 m) section. The concrete subcontractor had estimated a three percent overrun, but in actuality they were at one percent. Needless to say, ODOT is very pleased with the results.” The project is completed and the I-84, Baldock Slough — South Baker Interchange section of the one time Oregon Trail is handling traffic. Swenson said, “This was our first job where we used a robotic total station with machine control. I’m impressed with how efficient the Trimble Universal Total Stations were and how well they worked. Think about it, in 24 days we ground 9.5 miles of highway, 9 passes across. That’s an incredible amount of grinding which we completed accurately with the help of the technology. Our schedule was a bit of a grind — pun intended — but we finished the project in one year, half the time, which was incredible.” (This story also can be found on Construction Equipment Guide’s Web site at www.constructionequipmentguide.com.)
