4-27-14 | Berard Team Wins SC&RA Moving Job of the Year!
The Berard Team is pleased and honored to announce that we have been awarded the 2014 Moving Job of the Year by the Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association. The team traveled to sunny Boca Raton, Florida and entered the bulk material crane load-out and off-load project which was completed in the latter part of 2013. There were several great entries to compete against and yet we brought home the win!
The project consisted of loading out a massive bulk material crane which weighed in at 1000 tons and measured 173' high x 208' long x 85' wide from the fabricator at the Port of Iberia and off loaded at the Port of Lake Charles, LA. The final portion of the job consisted of rotating the crane 90 degrees while still on the barge and then transferring it from the barge to the concrete pier. Once on the pier the team then precisely set it down onto the pier's rail system.
We would like to dedicate this award to all of our valued and dedicated team members who worked countless hours and gave it their all as well as putting their passion for the job into making this and every job we do yet another success story for our blessed company.
This award is for all of you who make us who we are, a truly blessed and fortunate company that has built our success by having great people with us. This is for you.
