Cogeneration or Combined Heat and Power (CHP) is the simultaneous generation of electricity and other energy together, most often through an electrical generator to produce usable heat. More thermally efficient in using fuel than standard energy production, which results solely in unusable process heat, cogeneration better utilizes its resultant thermal energy in addition to the […]
What is Wastewater? Before we can create a construction solution, we need to know the origin of the problem. Wastewater is a by-product of domestic, commercial, industrial or agricultural activities that rely on or use water in any capacity. This puts the responsibility of preventing wastewater leakage squarely on the shoulders of all industries, sectors, […]
Over the past several months we’ve seen positive growth across manufacturing industries.

In Part 1 of our Safety Series, we examined the importance of safety guards for rotating equipment. Now that we know how they protect us let’s take a step back and see why these rails are safety essentials in the construction industry. While it is impossible to eliminate all risks as industrial contractors, including process […]

California’s severe drought, which began in 2014, finally appears to be over. At its height, certain locations, primarily Central and Southern California, experienced extreme or exceptional drought conditions, prompting Governor Jerry Brown to declare a state of emergency. Today, three years later, the historic California drought is coming to an end. This winter was an […]
