Honing our skills from German Masters
In 2016, we began the process of implementing a new drilling technique using segmental casing. At first, it seemed to take longer than open-hole methods, but segmental casing proved to be more efficient and far safer. Ready to commit, we headed to Germany to learn from the masters. The curve was steep, but Blount crews trained until everyone could skillfully apply the new drilling technique on our job sites. The hard work paid off in safer working conditions, improved quality, and no additional time.

On a recent job for a hospital in downtown Phoenix, our design won us the bid during the early procurement process. Our client wanted a tunnel under an active hospital, and unbeknownst to us, the other bidder said it was impossible. Not only did we build the 11’ by 9’, 210LF tunnel with multiple 45°bends to miss existing foundations, but we also completed the basement and the tunnel simultaneously so that subsequent scopes of work would not be interrupted.
