SCI’s already huge number of IMSA Certified Technicians, is getting bigger!

Saturday, February 18th, 2012

 

SCI has always been proud to have the largest number of IMSA certified staff in the state of Utah. As a matter of fact, back in 2009 SCI was given the IMSA award for having the most IMSA certified employees in the region.

 

 

 

The IMSA (International Municipal Signal Association) is Dedicated to providing quality certification programs for the safe installation, operation and maintenance of public safety systems; delivering value for members by providing the latest information and education in the industry.

DID YOU KNOW?

UDOT specifications state that any company doing Traffic Signal or ATMS construction on Utah roadways must have 2 IMSA certified technicians as well as 1 Journeyman electrician on the job site at all times. Working with SCI will guarantee this requirements is met every time.

We Will Never Forget…. 9/11

Sunday, September 11th, 2011

Ten years ago today was one of the most tragic days in the history of the United States — it left a scar on our country that will never go away, but the resilience and spirit of the American people shines as bright as it ever has.

Today, all of us at SCI would like to say, we remember!  Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by this attack.

ABC’S 2011 DUTCH OVEN COOK-OFF

Thursday, September 1st, 2011

SCI/Wasatch Barricade, JPB and IMS participated in the ABC’s Annual Dutch Oven Cook-Off held at beautiful Sugar House Park. A sunny day greeted all those who came to support and be a part of the event.

SCI’s cooking team was the first to set up camp and get down to business. They started by cooking the secret BBQ sauce (The recipe is available for $5.00 by purchasing the ABC Dutch Oven Cook-off recipe book), asiago chesse was used which gave the food a great flavor.

Team JPB tried a more ancient and serious approach. Their technique was composed of chanting an Italian…ish sounding anthem repeatedly as they used century-old tools and techniques, such as tossing dough in the air and using bud light beer cans as dough rollers.

Team IMS’ cooking and recipe was simple… secrecy! They set camp at a spot a little further away from the other teams and simply got straight to business. No chanting, no messing around! Just business as usual and they walked away with BOTH Dutch Oven awards for main course and desert.

Thanks to everyone that attended and made this years ABC’s Dutch Oven Cook-Off another success. After nearly 5 hours of cooking and 30 minutes of putting all of the food away by everyone in attendance, it was very easy to see that individual Companies didn’t show up… only family!!!

SCI helps sponsor the BUY Foundation demolition derby car

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

SCI is once again trying to give back to the community by helping sponsor the BUY(Building Utah Youth) foundation Derby car. This car will be used at the 2011 Weber County Fair going on August 10th through the 13th at the Weber County Fairgrounds – 1000 North 1200 West, in beautiful Ogden. Other Utah ABC proud members are also helping sponsor the car.

BUY Foundation Derby Car

What the BUY Foundation stands for…. In today’s changing culture, leadership training is paramount to developing self-sufficient, ethical, and compassionate individuals. According to studies, youth who participate in development and leadership experiences are more likely to do well in school, be involved in the community, and positively transition through adolescence and adulthood. BUY is committed to provide this opportunity to as many Northern Utah youth as possible in the upcoming years.

2011 Associated Builders and Contractors Charity Golf Tournament

Tuesday, July 5th, 2011

 

We sent two teams to the 30th Annual ABC Golf Tournament this year in an effort to win but more important, to support a very worthy charity. The event was held at Soldier Hollow Golf Course in beautiful Midway, Utah and there were enough teams to fill both the Gold and the Silver courses. The proceeds from the tournament are donated to a local children’s charity and help to fund back to school clothing and supplies for the kids.

Our first team was James Arciaga, Mark Todd, Scott Lindsay and our ace player, Cody Sorensen. We had a great time but in the end, our 5 under par score was not enough to put our names on the trophy. Our second team was Chase Sorensen, Ben Vigil, Neil Atkinson, and Dave Giles. They also posted a respectable score of 5 under par but again, no trophies.

We also sponsored hole #16 on the Gold course and held a closest-to-the-hole contest. Carl Sundstrom, Jamie Morris and Carlos Salcedo were on site to offer the players swing tips, yardage to the hole, a friendly smile and most important a watchful eye to make sure the contest was honest.  Ron Hadley used his finely honed skills to stop his golf ball within 8 feet of a very tough pin. His efforts were rewarded with an awesome new Garmin G3 Approach golf GPS unit.

At the end of the day, we all had a great time and most important of all, we raised a lot of cash for a truly worthy charity!

Thanks to all who participated!

SCI defends ABC Safety Olympics Title!

Sunday, June 12th, 2011

SCI ABC Safety Olympics Champions

On Thursday, June 9th, the Associated Builders and Contractors held their annual Safety Olympics. The event consists of a skills competition using several different pieces of construction equipment. The backhoe, mini excavator, scissor lift, skid steer loader and all terrain fork lift. The competitors also take a written test on the varios safety issues that exist on each piece of equipment they will be using. Each operator is able to compete individually and for their team. We have been anticipating this event for the last year due to the fact we have won the team event three years in a row. We were tuned up and ready to go for the four-peat.

For those who are less familiar with this event, the competitors are given a course and rules that they must follow to get through safely, but timely as well. Any safety infractions are converted into time, so the safer the operator, the better the time. So if you want to use it as a measuring stick, we have the safest and most skilled operators around!

Mike Johnson performed extremely well in the skidsteer competition, placing third in the individual and devastating the competition for his team time. He beat Wadman’s operator by nearly 3 minutes, that is a huge advantage. Most of his success was due to the fact that he was able to operate safely under control and therefore avoided large penalties that other competitors received. Mike also operated the backhoe for our team and beat Wadman’s operator by nearly 2 minutes, again, much of this spread was due to the infractions that were avoided by Mike with his precise operating. The safety penalties are heavy on all of the events, so if an operator just goes through the course as fast as possible without thinking of safety, then they will lose. Mike won the individual backhoe event outright with Travis also competing in the individual portion and earning third place.


Travis Kunkle performed superbly on the all-terrain forklift. Again, the safer the competitor, the better overall time they will have. Travis placed first in individual portion of the forklift competition and had a competitive time for the team portion, which allowed SCI to remain in the chase.

 

Steve Miller

Steve Miller competed on the individual portion of the scissor lift and placed first overall, smoked the course, again. Kody Kendall did not quite place on the scissor lift for the individual time, but he absolutely destroyed the competition for his team time, a big factor in the overall win.

Kody Kendall

 

On a side note, Mike Johnson and Travis Kunkle placed first and second respectively in the mini-x competition.

Mike and Travis

Everyone should be pleased with the efforts of these guys and the way they represented our company in such a safe and proficient manner.

Again thanks to everyone who made it possible.

 

P.S. SCI took the trophy home with a final tally of 1331 seconds, Wadman and Big D (team a) tied for second with 1456 seconds, R&O finished with 1706 seconds, and Big D (team b) finished with 2107 seconds. We won with a 2 minute lead.
