Baker Concrete Broadens Scope and Improves Processes for Success in Today's Tough Construction Market, an Industrial Info News Alert

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - Sep 14, 2011) - Written by John Egan for Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- To succeed in today's difficult construction market, Baker Concrete Construction (Monroe, Ohio) has had to change the way it does business, according to Bob Nussmeier, Baker's director of business development. "We broadened the range of projects -- by type and geography -- on which we bid to include jobs we might not have looked at before. We improved our operational efficiency, while keeping our focus on safety as job No. 1."

Baker Concrete Construction specializes in all types of heavy, cast-in-place concrete construction, including industrial, renewable, power plants, heavy civil packages, nuclear, marine concrete applications, water treatment facilities and any heavy industrial emplacements that require high-quality or highly complex concrete formwork placements with cost and schedule certainty.

The Baker executive also detailed some of the types of projects that the company is bidding on today on which it might not have bid previously: "We're looking at hydroelectric power projects, nuclear, coal gasification, gas-to-liquids (GTL) projects, flood control in New Orleans, alternative energy, downstream oil & gas projects, chemical processing jobs and renewable power projects like wind and solar."

"To keep our prospect pipeline full, we're spending more time poring over data on economic trends and project spending -- we're looking harder and digging deeper," he continued. "That's why we are glad to have IIR's PEC Reports® on industrial project activity. I've been in this business for 23 years, and I've never seen anything like the PEC Reports. Whether you're in construction, or engineering or equipment and material sales, the place to find out who's doing what project, where and when is IIR's daily project summaries."
