General Labor

Our laborers typically work in one of the construction trades, in fields such as road paving, building construction, bridges, tunnels etc. They are considered the most reliable and knowledgeable.

Our laborers have blasting tools, hand tools, power tools, air tools, and small heavy equipment, and act as assistants to other trades as well, when sometimes they need guidance- e.g., operators or cement masons.

An Experienced Labor Crew Matters

The 1st century BC engineer Vitruvius writes in detail about laborer practices at that time. In his experience a good crew of laborers is just as valuable as any other aspect of construction.

Other than the addition of pneumatics, laborer practices have changed little. With the advent of advanced technology and its introduction into the construction field, the laborers have been quick to include much of this technology as being laborers work.

Some of the work done by our laborers includes:

  • concrete – shotcrete, gunite, grouting and steel forms
