Owner/ Estimator/Project Manager
You would be hard pressed to find anyone the caliber of Dale Lawrence. Between his integrity and having been in construction since 1959, Dale is a pillar in the industry. He is able to harness all of his practical knowledge and embrace innovation to present the best solutions possible to Interstate clients. Few, if any, can match his understanding in regards to excavation projects.

|Projects Rolling, Bids Flowing
Construction Crazy Season
The middle of summer can be a very stressful time of year. Projects are in full swing, crews are busy and bids are coming out for work due to begin this fall. The combination of performing work and pricing future work can make for a long day. Contractors have to be adept at managing time and schedules to do both effectively. The more time a contractor has to calculate a bid package, the more accurate the final product. Having the foresight to engage the bidding company early as possible in the process is critically important.
The better excavating contractors will have a shorter bidding season as they will fill their pipeline quickly. They're calculating and forecasting manpower as well as equipment resources. This while still using those exact same resources on their current projects. Add in the wild card of fall, as well as winter, weather delays and you can see why time literally is money. We understand it isn't always possible to get complete project information early, but excavating work is usually at the front end of the project therefore, can be priced at the beginning of project design.
Many construction projects can take quite a while to develop. Often the excavating contractor isn't contacted on the front end. The more the excavator can be consulted at the onset of a job design, the better the bid. Of course the better the bid, the more efficient the project. An end result everyone desires to have.
