Topping the Pile this month...August is HUGE at PDCA as the 2022 Project of the Year Award winners will be revealed in Issue 4 of PileDriver magazine, coming to your inbox and mailbox in mere weeks. Sorry, but this publication contains NO leaks...gotta wait for PileDriver!

Speaking of awards The highly decorated Little Island Park off Midtown Manhattan was not entered into the POY Awards, but PDCA members on the job like Trevcon Construction, Mueser Rutledge Consulting Engineers and Weeks Marine prove to be key ambassadors for the industry. The Smithsonian Channel features an insightful analysis of the pile driving for this project on How Did They Build That? Through this program, we found a connection between pile driving and blockbuster movie 'Top Gun: Maverick'!
With her COVID-postponed wedding complete, join us in congratulating PileDriver and A Pile of News publisher Jill Harris, who finally married Erik Hansen on June 30...PHOTOS. Not sure how Erik likes it, but based on her endorsement deal, it'll be A&W Whistle Dogs for supper the whole first year!

Media Hits
Bloomberg Law features a contractor trend toward chin straps for hard hats. Safety head at Clark Construction Kris Manning says it has been their standard since 2017, and estimates 25% of subs voluntarily use them. SVP Keith McCoy at Balfour Beatty says they move to mandatory chin straps this summer.
News2-TV, Charleston, SC follows the lead of the most recent PileDriver magazine and features its version of the cover story on Conti Civil, LLC's job.

There's more! The Vindicator of Liberty, TX puts the company on the front page, above the fold in its coverage of construction for the new Union Pacific Railroad Bridge northeast of Houston.
Notes from the Field
Put a ring on it A suggestion that J. Fletcher Creamer & Sons has embraced. As part of its program that provides lunches for employees during summer months, a company office in Maryland had onion rings on their menu. A social media post designed for employee recruitment shows a happy group posing with the shiny rings (which likely shine because of grease 😉).

Not ready for prime-time players (but they're close!) Apex Steel Pipe & Piling runs a unique internship program that incorporates a vintage SNL theme, a black-tie-only dress code, onsite golf practice and a masterful TikTok campaign, among other things. Check out Coneheads, which has a webpage, guest speaker series and short social media videos by executive producer Blake Barineau.

So Biff wants to be a Buff History enthusiasts might be interested to learn that Canal Barge Company recently transported a very special relic from WWII. The patrol-torpedo boat PT-305 has been fully restored to its original specs and brought back to life as an initiative of the WWII Museum in New Orleans. The marine transporter delivered the vessel back to the museum for permanent display.

What sells and what is sold to us is youth Regarded as the first planned city in the U.S., New Haven, CT thought it was time for new billboards. Crews obtained an ICE® International Construction Equipment vibro to install dozens of 48" x 108' columns to display the ads along I-95. Being the birthplace of hamburgers, lollipops, frisbees,and more, New Haven has plenty of homegrown goods for the marketplace.

With July 2022 and the All-Star Break in the books, we want to throw a little more love at a fun and productive summer month. Did you know that the home of the AL East-leading Yankees (at the time of this writing), Yankee Stadium contains pipe piles from Atlas Tube's parent company? Another note, the month started with a couple big holidays for the U.S. and Canada, which we referenced in this space on July 1. But Ralph L. Wadsworth Construction played the TikTok Taught Me game to inform us about a big holiday in Utah on July 24, which we missed...so Happy Belated Pioneer Day!

Now we are in the dog days of summer. If you're a Georgia fan and anticipating a repeat championship, you may call them the Dawg Days, since football kicks off in late August. (For good measure, David Price at Linde-Griffith calls for Delaware in the FCS).  Before you get too comfortable in front of your TV or at your tailgate parties, don't forget to update your PDCA account so that your company appears as you intend in the 2023 PDCA Membership Directory. We need any employee, contact or other revisions completed at your earliest convenience, but by Sept. 30 at the latest.

Scenes From the Northeast Chapter, 7th Annual Sporting Clays

The 2022 edition of the PDCA Northeast Chapter Sporting Clays event is in the books, and the winner of the 'Sun's Out, Guns Out' Award went to Danielle Chiolo of Nucor Skyline! No, this was not an actual award at the July 22nd outing which took place at Lehigh Valley Sporting Clays in Coplay, PA, however Danielle did earn hardware as Best Female Shooter, as presented by Matt Scerbak, Chapter Promotions Officer and representative from Associated Pile and Fitting.

Several dozen marksmen and women from throughout New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and beyond participated in the seventh annual event that featured food, fellowship and competitive shooting on one of the region's most unique courses. Teams of four followed the trail through various shooting stations and kept score on their performance at each. At the end of the competition, participants gathered for networking, lunch and refreshments and applauded various award winners from the day. (A full list was not yet available at the time this was published.)

The PDCA Northeast Chapter thanks all food and shooting station sponsors for their generosity and all participants for making the trek to the rural hamlet just north of Philadelphia for the clay shooting adventure. The Chapter invites you to consider competing in this event next year, watch PDCA for future announcements.

PDCA Sponsors Industry Golf Outing in New England

(Left to right: The Equipment Corporation of America team included David Sciortino, Anthony Sciortino and Patrick Mix)

PDCA was proud to be a hole sponsor and dinner guest at the Foundation & Marine Contractors Association of New England, Inc., Eighty Seventh Annual Outing, a golf and banquet event held July 18, 2022 at the Framingham Country Club in Framingham, Mass. Festivities began with check-for golfers who wanted to warm up at the driving range. All golfers were provided with a PDCA-logo, draw-string bag to carry golf balls, tees and other necessities for a day on the links. A hamburger and hot dog lunch was also available underneath the big tent near the golf cart line-up. Players teed-off promptly at 12:30 PM EDT; the capacity attendance required two foursomes for each of the 18 holes. Once the best-ball tournament was underway, each team encountered various 'challenges' throughout the course such as Closest to the Pin and Longest Drive. Following completion of the round, teams gathered back under the big tent for a cocktail party and gift distribution. Then at 7:00 PM golfers and dinner registrants gathered in a nearby banquet hall for a surf and turf dinner, the installation of new FMCA officers and awards.

Draw-string bags provided to FMCA outing participants

While numerous employees of PDCA-member companies participated in the annual event, Brad Roberts of GZA GeoEnvironmental was recognized for his 16 years of service to the FMCA as Secretary and Drew Floyd of Keller was saluted for completing his role as Treasurer for the same period of time. The two graciously embraced their retirements from FMCA. From everyone at PDCA, we congratulate Brad and Drew on a successful tenure and selfless industry advocacy. Also notable, Bob Tonning of Phoenix Foundation assumed the organization Presidency as Angelo Colesante of East Coast Slurry stepped away. 

(Brad Roberts stands at the FMCA officer's table as he departs his long tenure as Secretary)

 PDCA sends a special 'thanks' to Dario DiBona, Outing Committee Chairman, for coordinating our sponsorship and draw-string bag distribution. Also, PDCA appreciates Anthony Sciortino of Equipment Corporation of America (ECA) for finding an opening in his foursome to enable staff to play golf. Finally, PDCA enjoyed the opportunity to join the table with American Equipment & Fabrication, including Charlie Booth, Ben Peel, Bill Wilbur, Joe Gelardi and Pat Griffin during dinner and awards.

Common Thread Between 'Top Gun: Maverick' and Pile Driving

A summer blockbuster at movie theaters this year has been the long-awaited sequel to 1980's classic "Top Gun." Lead actor in the original flick, Tom Cruise, co-produces and stars in the action-packed, continuation of the story about an outspoken fighter pilot. Titled Top Gun: Maverick, moviegoers have been flocking to theaters this summer to see what, to date, is the top grossing motion picture of 2022.

So, what does any of this have to do with pile driving??? With the help of the gentleman pictured above, actor Jay Ellis, the tried-and-true method of effective and reliable deep foundation construction gets significant, international exposure on cable television. He is Lt. Reuben 'Payback' Fitch in Top Gun: Maverick, but he is also the host of "How Did They Build That?," a popular program on the Smithsonian Channel. The first episode of the second season of that program gives viewers an in-depth analysis of a remarkable, driven pile project. 

PDCA member Weeks Marine was among a long list of construction professionals who had a role in the urban marvel known as Little Island Park, and "How Did They Build That?" spends considerable time discussing project components, particularly the pile driving installation. Viewers will see Weeks' machinery and crews in-action during the build. But that's not all! Other PDCA members Trevcon Construction and Mueser Rutledge Consulting Engineers (MRCE) were among those also on the construction roster for what is dubbed the 'floating park' off Midtown Manhattan in New York City. The project brings an innovative and rare greenspace to the largest city in the U.S., and it has deservedly earned considerable recognition throughout the engineering and construction communities, the Big Apple, and now thanks to a cable TV hit, a worldwide audience of curious viewers. PDCA congratulates all members who were involved in the development of Little Island Park.

PDI Celebrating 50 Years of Piling Instrumentation Innovation

Don't miss the newest issue of PileDriver magazine which includes an article marking the 50th anniversary of Pile Dynamics, Inc. (PDI), a Cleveland-based developer and manufacturer of instrumentation that has revolutionized the deep foundations industry over five decades. Two of the company's three founders co-author the chronicle of PDI history, starting with the vision of the late George Goble, who, with his research team of Frank Rausche and Garland Likins, developed a prototype of a Pile Driving Analyzer in the early 1970's. From there, Rausche and Likins take the reader through the years which brought the company international marketability, a product line ever-increasing in sophistication, a division which has matured into a full service geotechnical engineering firm, and significant growth in both personnel and facilities. The story of PDI represents true success in entrepreneurship, collaboration, dedication, creativity, innovation and savvy. PDCA congratulates PDI on a half century of excellence.
