Salt flats? Expansive lake? Wet concrete, actually—2.5 million square feet of it. Shoutout to the
folks out there building every day at the crack of dawn. And a special shoutout to Johnny Hadden of
Building & Earth for this beautiful sunrise pic.

Hello. My name is Dr. Michael Lehr, and I am a retired educator residing in West Georgia. I am writing because I have a concern I wish to bring to your company’s attention. Fortunately, my concern is not about the quality of the services your company provides, but it could gravely impact your corporate image. I mentor a young man in my community who was lured, baited, groomed, molested, sodomized, and raped by one of your employees. The victim is 18 years old now, but the criminal abuse he suffered began when he was only a 15-year-old boy. The perpetrator of these heinous crimes is a convicted felon and appears on Georgia’s sex offenders registry. On the registry, it indicates convictions for statutory rape; however, the original charges were 3 counts of aggravated child molestation. 20 years have passed since your employee was first convicted, yet clearly he was never rehabilitated. Your employee not only victimized the young man for whom I advocate, but he also victimized his cousin and propositioned his brother, and one of his friends. These are only the cases I have learned about. Who knows how many more victims there have been! All of this information is presently under investigation by law enforcement authorities, and the evil this man has perpetrated upon so many young boys will likely be exposed in the public media. I do not write you to prompt any particular action. However, if this man’s behaviors do not align with your corporate values, you may wish to independently investigate what I have reported and make your own decisions about how to protect the image of your company. I understand how delicately and discreetly personnel matters such as these must be handled, so I won’t use this platform to “out” your employee by name. If you are interested in more information, feel free to ask someone from your human resources department to contact me.

One of our associates got a great pic of a concrete pump truck being used to place concrete for an elevated pour at the Killm 5 Superstructure jobsite in Birmingham, Alabama.

For multistory “cast-in-place” structures, the concrete is poured in stages so that it can cure properly before adding additional vertical load. Forms can also be repurposed for higher levels as they are removed from lower levels.
