As a member of the Kerr family of companies, we draw on a staff of more than 240 that includes professional development consultants, construction managers, estimators, schedulers, superintendents, crew members and office support staff. The combined fleet includes more than 500 pieces of heavy construction equipment, all standard of the industry, including dozens of categories, from small dozers and loaders up to giant CAT D10 crawler dozers and Komatsu P.C. 1250 excavators. When you need a high production rate on a fast-schedule job site, we deliver the optimum number of machines, with a skilled operator in every seat.
We have invested heavily in GPS survey and machine control capabilities to verify existing topography, minimize grade staking, minimize workers’ exposure in traffic areas, prevent unnecessary delays in the schedule and most importantly, to improve efficiency and accuracy. Our operators take their cues from GPS monitors, resulting in less rework, meaning less time and money. In many cases, GPS equipped scrapers can cut and fill to final elevations, reducing the volume of fine grading work.
Our equipment is serviced and repaired in the company’s 10,000 square foot maintenance facility in The Dalles. This location also serves as a staging area for long-haul mobilization, affording us the ability to deliver to job site days or even weeks ahead of the company’s competitors. To further minimize downtime, our fleet of maintenance trucks provides rapid service to job sites. All equipment operators and laborers receive safety training specific to their work environment.
