Construction is a huge industry that accounts for several different building and civil engineering jobs. Construction encompasses markets like carpentry, home design, road construction and bridge development. This industry is one of the world’s largest because it creates the structure and foundation for cities and towns, not to mention entire countries. The three basic parts of the construction industry are general contracting, specialty trade construction and civil engineering. Regardless of the construction market you’re in, conditions are often demanding. Harsh environments and extreme heat or cold are often part of the job, as well as long hours and extreme physical exertion. Because of this, construction workers should be in good physical shape. Since risk is another part of the job, construction workers have to wear protective gear to stay safe from injury.
A general contractor is responsible for constructing the buildings and roads of both residential and commercial projects. A general contracting company will often manage several sub-contractors for a project. For example, the general contractor will have to oversee and organize plumbers, painters and electricians. Other trade groups involved in the construction industry include brick layers, floor installers and carpenters. However, most of these trade groups will work under a general contractor. Civil engineering focuses on building infrastructures like bridges, tunnels and roads.
The construction industry supplies a lot of jobs to workers who haven’t continued their education after high school. Many jobs require just a high school diploma or a GED, including work as a helper, apprentice or laborer. Advanced positions, like working as a heating and air conditioning expert, often require some sort of education, training or certification, though. Several jobs in the field require a license, such as working in home development, plumbing or crane operating. Ultimately, licenses ensure safety and proper training.
CCI provides on-going support for a major transmission plant in the Midwest on a scheduled and on-call basis. This work is performed in conjunction and coordination with the plant’s operations and maintenance team in order to insure continued, high quality operation of key components. CCI responds to in-plant emergencies to restore plant operations as quickly as possible. CCI’s participation in the management of this facility assists in providing quality products for the plant’s customers.
CCI has provided fluid removals, equipment cleaning, and residuals management services for equipment and related piping systems in advance of the removal (strip-out) of the equipment at a former automotive plant in Ohio. Also, depending on project scope, CCI provides cleaning of pits and trenches as necessary in advance of, or during, equipment removal. In execution of this work, CCI operates in close coordination with the Owner’s site, engineering, and environmental representatives. Effective strip-out preparation provided by CCI helps reduce equipment demolition timing and helps maintain project cost and schedule.
To support Owner developed demolition specifications, and regulatory requirements, CCI addressed the universal wastes, residual chemicals, and surface cleaning of a former auto plant in Michigan. The objective of this pre-demolition cleaning is to remove hazardous materials so that the demolition can occur without impacting other media. This pre-demolition cleaning also maximizes recovery and recycling efforts by reducing surface contamination and avoiding the disposal of valuable construction materials.
In support of rehabilitation of an abandoned auto plant in Michigan, CCI provided post-demolition cleaning of concrete surfaces; including slabs, pits, and trenches. This effort not only provided a safer work environment, it also facilitated backfilling and other rehabilitation activities.
