Richard Price Contracting: Current News

Richard Price Contracting has been contracted by Stirling Properties to be the site General Contractor for the Hammond Square Lifestyle Town Center. This development will require the demolition of the existing Hammond Mall and expanding the existing site to 100 acres. We have been in negotiations with Stirling Properties for this project for the last six months. Stirling properties is a client that we enjoy working with and we have great working relationship with all of their project managers. This will be our fourth major shopping center development for Stirling Properties. We will be performing all the work outside of the buildings. This project will require approximately 350,000 cubic yards of imported fill. This will be Stirling Properties first life style town center and we are honored that they chose Richard Price Contracting to be a part of it. The contract value for our work for Stirling Properties will be $16,500,000.00. We have also secured two projects for street widening and relocation with the City of Hammond. The value of these two contracts is $2,622,934.00. The total for all three contracts is $19,122,934.00

Richard Price Contracting Adds GPS Automated Equipment

Richard Price Contracting has equipped several pieces of their equipment with GPS control. We now have one 12H Caterpillar grader and four D5N Caterpillar dozers equipped with GPS automated control. This has changed the way we do earth work. When we prepare to start a project we first request the AutoCAD drawing for the project. Our CAD Operator then takes the engineers CAD drawings and uses a program called Terramodel to convert the drawings to 3D. Once the drawings are converted, which can take a week or more, they are then sent to our GPS coordinator. He then sets a Trimble GPS base station on the jobs and calibrates it using control points set around the perimeter of the site. He then uploads the 3D drawings to the machinery. From then on the operator can see what his cut or fill is as he travels the site. When his cut or fill is within two to three tenths he turns the machine on automatic and the machine operates the blade as he drives the machine. The computer screen in the machine shows him in real time where he is on the site. Anything shown on the blueprints will also be shown on his screen as he goes by that object. This allows us to grade a site without any survey stakes. In the last two years we have invested nearly a half a million dollars in our GPS equipment. We completed the Washington Parish landfill without any survey stakes. The final grades on this project were certified by a independent survey company for DEQ and was certified to be built to the exact grades shown on the permitted DEQ drawings. We also used this equipment on the Hammond Airport, which included 3500 lineal feet of new runway and the Amite Wal-Mart Super Center. We use only Trimble Products for our GPS needs. Cory Mystic and Johnny Murphy at SMI not only sell the equipment, they know everything that there is to know about the Trimble products. When you see our equipment on our sites and the dozer or graders have two tall yellow poles on the blade, they are most likely working in automatic mode.
