|In Hot Springs, Arkansas,
Construction Company is building an Armed Forces Reserve Center
U.S Army Corps of Engineers.
This project is on Albert Pike Blvd just off of the 270 Bypass.
Wilson Brothers Construction Company was
selected to do the site work excavation for this project and they
chose Dykon Blasting to perform the drilling and blasting of the
rock that had to be removed in order to prepare the site for
construction of the Armed Forces Facility.
This project is nestled in a commercial
area with residences on the east side of the site. One
residence was within 100 feet of a 30' solid rock cut. On the
other side of the project was Greeson Motor Sports. The north
side of the project was bordered by Albert Pike Blvd which is a
major thoroughfare for Hot Springs, Arkansas.
There were many crafts working
simultaneously with the excavation of the project. Plumbers,
steel erectors, electricians, trucking companies and other
contractors were working all around us. The coordination of
shooting was a difficult process made even more challenging by
trying to schedule traffic control with the local police department.
Thanks to the joint efforts of
Construction Company, Wilson Brothers, Construction Company, The Hot
Springs Police Department and all the rest of the onsite
contractors, we were able to perform the drilling and blasting of
this sensitive project safely, successfully and on schedule.
We at Dykon Blasting appreciate the
challenge and the opportunity to work with everyone involved and we
would like to thank them all for their support and cooperation.
We look forward to working with them all again in the future.
