Did To Help You With Your Job Search

Advances and competition among social media, job search platforms and technology mean that methods and strategies change quickly. Here are a few to be aware of - adjust and adapt accordingly! Continue reading →
  • This transportation project, approximately 12 miles north of Los Angeles, extends to the North Los Robles Avenue overcrossing in Pasadena.
  • Flatiron West of Chino Hills, California appointed Oldcastle Precast of Fontana, California to supply several thousand precast highway pavement slabs for this $148 million project.
  • Oldcastle Precast received the contract to manufacture 6,500 precast concrete pavement slabs. Each slab measures 12.5-foot-wide by 11.33-foot-long by 12-inch-thick, for the 9.7-mile segment of I-210, and will be used to replace sections that have undergone erosion and deterioration due to years of exposure to heavy traffic.
  • Site installation of the pavement slabs is an overnight process. The highway is closed at approximately 9:00 pm, the deteriorated sections are cut out, and a lean concrete base is placed into the opening. After the concrete base achieves the required strength, approximately 1 hour later, the precast concrete pavement slabs are installed and the highway is reopened for full traffic by 5:00 am the next morning. This method reduces impact to the public, especially to commuters.
  • Precast Concrete Pavement Systems (PCPS) promote construction methods that reduce traffic congestion, reduce project duration, increase safety, and produce durable repairs. Not only do the highway slabs install quickly, minimizing closures and exposure of crews to live traffic, they can be installed in any weather and last a long time, an estimated 50 years, per Caltrans.
  • Length of freeway segment: 9.7 miles Total amount of concrete: 200,000 cubic yards of precast and cast in place. Average number of slabs set per week: 280
  • Average distance of slabs set per night: 630 Linear-Feet Manufacturing time: April 2016 through March 2017 Average slabs cast per day: 30

  • Oldcastle Precast plants based in Newman, Ga. and Concord, N.C. received Safety Hall of Fame Awards sponsored at The Precast Show 2017 in Cleveland, Ohio. The award, given for the first time this year, recognizes safety-conscious producer members for having no recordable incidents and accidents for the last five years.
  • Oldcastle received the award for reaching the highest level of safety achievement based on its OSHA 300 logs.
  • "The precast concrete industry continues to focus on ensuring its high-quality, durable products are produced in a safe manner," said Ty Gable, president of the National Precast Concrete Association. "The NPCA is committed to helping our members succeed, and is proud of the safety records of these two Oldcastle Precast plants."
GIVING BACK
  • Did you know that 90% of disasters affecting the Metro Atlanta community are home and apartment fires? In fact, the Red Cross of Georgia responds to the highest number of fires in the U.S. In 2016 alone, the Metro Atlanta Red Cross responded to 770 fire disasters. 
  • Oldcastle donated 125 Teddy Bears so that the Red Cross can provide teddy bears to children devastated by a fire disaster. The teddy bear is typically one of the first items a child receives after a fire, which brings much comfort and emotional support to aid in their healing process.
Group of employees holding safety award
  • 2016 was a perfect year for employee safety for Oldcastle Enclosures-Tracy, California which manufactures plastic, polymer, and concrete enclosure and steel products serving the municipal water, irrigation, electric, telecom, cable, and transportation markets. 
  • The company's employees worked approximately 295,000 hours without any Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recordable injuries.
  • Oldcastle Enclosures's strong safety performance began well before last year. There hasn't been an OSHA-recordable incident since January 2013. The employees have accomplished an impressive safety milestone.
  • In appreciation of their commitment and to recognize this accomplishment, on January 27, 2017 employees enjoyed a catered luncheon from Famous Dave's BBQ and received gift bags.
  • "Our entire team worked very hard to be injury free, while keeping costs down and staying productive. Being injury free for 4 years doesn't happen by luck, it happens because our employees consciously decide daily to do the right thing.
