Tucker Paving’s special take on ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’

AS THIS ARTICLE goes up on the Tucker Paving blog site, it is the 13th day of December 2017, leaving 12 days to go until The Big Day — Christmas Day.

That reminds us of a holiday song — one that we now won’t get out of our head for quite some time. That would be “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” of course. You know… the one that drives home the point — a dozen times — about a very special partridge in a pear tree. Continue reading Tucker Paving’s special take on ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’

2016 was a busy and good year for Tucker Paving; we’re expecting a repeat for 2017

As this blog article was being posted, only a few precious hours remained in the year we called Two Thousand and Sixteen. We were thinking that many people in business and every other facet of life probably have been or soon will be undergoing some form of mental multitasking, going back and forth in their minds with reflection about the year about to end and anticipating — we hope with eagerness — about the year about to start.

Good project multitasking is essential to our business model

Both at the employee level and at the team level, multitasking is SOP (standard operating procedure) here at Tucker Paving, Inc. It has to be if we want to keep up with the demand for our services (we do), if we want to fulfill our commitments in a quality and timely manner (we do), and if we want to see continued growth in our company (we do on that, too).

Multitasking can take on many forms. In construction, its most visible form usually means working on more than one job on more than one site at the very same time. We’re thankful that our growth through the years — in the number of employees, in the depth and breadth of our mechanized assets, and in the scope of our services, among other things — has given us the ability to do just that: The ability to work on several jobs at one time.

If you had been given the opportunity to drive all over Central Florida in May, you could have found Tucker Paving crews and equipment on several job sites, including the following:

• The new campus for Our Children’s Academy in Lake Wales.

• A public parking site in downtown Auburndale.

• The rising public parking garage facing the Polk County Courthouse and the county’s Neil Combee Administration Building in Bartow.

• The Oakwood Estates mobile home community in unincorporated southwest Winter Haven.

• The new Waterside Village subdivision in southeast Winter Haven.

• A Bancroft Boulevard improvement project near the new Wedgefield K-8 School in east Orange County.

Some of those projects have been completed. The others remain under way.

Multitasking is an art form — most certainly in construction — and we’re fortunate to have excellent artists (project managers and site-work supervisors among them) on the Tucker team.
