Baker Hughes Sand Handling Facility

Baker Hughes Sand Handling Facility

Shreveport, Louisiana

Baker Hughes recently had a sand handling facility built in Shreveport, Louisiana. The facility was constructed by Crossland Construction out of Columbus, Kansas using the MevaLite formwork system.  Crossland utilized the Houston Engineering Department for the project drawings and was pleased with the timeliness and quality of the construction drawings.

This was a joint effort between our Houston Engineering department and our Baton Rouge and Shreveport locations. Nolan Smith (Houston Engineering) took the lead on the construction drawings, while Cade Cawthorn (41-Rental Manager) ensured all forms were delivered to the jobsite. Lastly, Randy Claiborne (44) and the entire Shreveport branch handled the daily construction product needs of the customer.

Thank you to Nolan Smith, the Houston Engineering Department, Cade Cawthorn and the Shreveport location for working together to make this a successful project.

World of Concrete 2012

World of Concrete 2012

Las Vegas, Nevada

In January, 1,900 exhibiting companies and more than 50,000 registered industry professionals descended on Las Vegas, Nevada for World of Concrete (WOC). We at CMC Construction Services are proud to say that we were there with our parent company CMC and all other divisions of the CMC family. Attendees included commercial contractors, concrete contractors, ready mix producers, rental center managers, and concrete pumpers.

With more than 900,000 square feet of exhibit space where products, resources, and information related to concrete construction were shared and displayed there was more than enough to keep the attendees busy for the week that WOC runs.

Besides vendor displays, there were demonstrations and seminars open to attendees. These demonstrations represented actual work site conditions and situations where attendees can see products they are interested in demonstrated and have their questions answered. Some seminars gave attendees the opportunity to become certified in a specific field. Some examples of seminar topics include concrete production, concrete technology, and leadership & management.
