Blasting through Challenges

When the project team uncovered rock during excavation for the site utilities at Louisburg High School’s new athletic complex, they called in East Coast Drilling and Blasting to clear the way. The crew came out to measure the volume of rock that needed excavation in order to calculate the number and pattern of holes to be drilled. Once all the holes were drilled, the charges were set inside and tied into a detonation cord. After three short blows from the air horn and a “fire in the hole”, the rock challenge was gone. A total of 880 cubic yards of rock was blasted and removed over two separate blasts.

I can see clearly now the rain is gone!

The civil work is nearing completion at Stump Sound Elementary School as we prepare to go vertical. After significant rain delays through the winter, the team developed a plan to get the project back on schedule. It took several months to clear the 100+ acre site but we can finally see signs of a new school! The pace is ramping up with underground rough-ins, foundation block, concrete footings, grading and remaining site-work ongoing.

From Block to Brick – Southern Wayne HS Competition Gym

The project team is working hard to finish topping out the block work for the Southern Wayne HS Competition Gym in Dudley, NC.  D&D is working with the high school’s masonry club to include them with site visits as often as possible during this phase of work.  Our subcontractor, Brickworks, is an excellent partner and is graciously working with the club to lay a sample wall for the exterior veneer. We love working with the next generation of tradesmen and women!
