Areas of Expertise


Relevant Experiences

I have over 45 years of experience in the construction industry. I have worked around Concrete pumps in Industrial, Commercial as well as Bridges. Over the last 13 years I have been responsible for the placement of concrete by Pump Truck for more than 14 bridges. Some of those were in urban areas and some were crossing bayous. As the Project Manager it was my responsibility to approve the concrete placement, including the location of the pump truck for each and every concrete placement. Due to ground conditions, sometimes, extra steps were taken to assure that the placement went well and safely.
