New Arrival at George Reed – I want my MTV!

July 8, 2015 | By | No Comments

George Reed has a new MTV to add to its’ fleet. It is a Material Transport Vehicle which is used in the process of laying asphalt. The material is dumped in front of the machine. The machine then picks up the material and runs it over a series of conveyors, remixing the material prior to being placed in the paver. This process is to alleviate clumping and segregation and distributes the heat throughout the load. Cal Trans is requiring the use of  MTV machine on certain jobs to insure that the material being used meets their specifications. The new MTV was immediately put to work on a Cal Trans Job on Highway 12 near Terminous.

Reed takes flight in Galt

January 21, 2015 | By | No Comments

We decided to get some aerial footage via a drone on our rehab of Spring Street in Galt, CA. This was quite a unique perspective. The footage provided (ShadowQuad) provides our clients with a look into how we work in scope and scale. Although foggy conditions prevailed, we think this is a preview of good things to come.
