AGC of Maine Sponsors Annual Dozer Day

September 8, 2008

Each summer for the past half dozen, AGC of Maine has helped sponsor what one newspaper article called

AGC of Maine member firms brought excavators, trucks, a crane, vacuum truck, boom truck, loader, underground directional drill; and of course, dozers. One of the biggest draws of the daylong event was the heavy equipment simulator provided by United Technology Center. The local chapter of the National Association of Women in Construction also held its Block Kids competition. Each competitor is provided 100 interlocking building blocks and only has a limited amount of time for their projects. The two winners — one each for the morning and afternoon session — built a “crane with walkway and a protector” to “move stuff” and a “full construction site” including a crane, dump truck, loader, bulldozer, skyscraper, and a foundation under construction.  The winners of these two competitions will be considered for the overall chapter winner to be submitted in March 2009 for the regional competition.  Additionally, the industry donated door prizes, held equipment demonstations and offered a “prize mine” for kids. AGC Maine sponsors this annual event with the Boxberry School as a fund raiser for the school. All the operators and participant companies are AGC members or chapter or school staff.
