This month we are highlighting the Killdeer Plains Wildlife Area. This project consisted of designing and constructing exempt dams to create a wetland in the basin of the former Killdeer Upground Reservoir.
Unlike the movies, commercial space demolition isn't all flash and bang, with big explosions and catastrophic circumstances. Generally speaking, commercial space demolition is controlled and careful.
Even though it might be fun to picture demolition as it’s seen in old cartoons, that isn’t how the steps to demolition traditionally play out.
Not too long ago, sustainability and recycling was nothing more than a trend.
Today, however, you could argue that it's a necessity -- as more and more consumers are becoming aware of their environmental footprint, and changing their buying behavior to reflect this value.
The good news is that recycling has expanded well beyond household goods and packages today encompass a wide range of materials.
Asphalt and concrete are included in this mix, and recycling such isn't just good for the environment, but for your wallet as well.
This month we’re highlighting a project that is a little different than our past projects of the month.
We are working with the North Central Correctional Complex to create up-to-date and safe walking and driving surfaces on the property.

Unique homes and lots were created, nestled between the water and the trees -- offering a place of beautiful solitude for its residents.
We were happy to help take part in the creation of such unique and beautiful Ohio subdivision.
That is, have they received the right information and are they up to speed on the best practices for working in areas with limited work spaces and entry/exit points (think: manholes, silos, tank cars, bins, etc.)?
If they aren't, it's an understatement to say that they should be.
It's also a good reason why you shouldn't be doing business with them, as understanding the hazards, challenges and best way to work in these tight quarters is essential to staying safe and performing the job correctly.
When most people think of OSHA regulations, what comes to mind is usually obligations of the construction company to keep working conditions safe by following rules and guidelines.
However, the burden is not solely on the contractor -- it’s important to ask any contractor you have hired about their trench safety practices, and hold them accountable for following OSHA standards.
We’ve spoken before about how one of our passions at Park Enterprise Constructions is creating safe and attractive neighborhoods for families to make into their forever homes.
