His vibrant colors brighten the tunnel ventilation building with a fern and lobster so life-like you want to reach out and touch them. The realistic aspects of the painting become more intriguing with the use of geometric shapes and abstract fruit and vases.

In Hartford, Connecticut like so many other areas, construction has not been impacted by COVID to the degree other industries have been. Highway departments especially are taking advantage of the reduction in commuting travel to make additions and improvements to major highways and roads. Though causing temporary delays and frustration for those still commuting, in the long run these construction projects will hopefully transform the highways systems into safer and faster commuting times.
In addition to road construction, Connecticut can boast of other major construction projects that utilize rental equipment such as the Bridgeport Harbor Yard Amphitheater in which scissor lifts, excavators, boom lifts, and trenchers were used. The project which has been eight years in the making will be open for the upcoming concert season.

Virginia has become one of the states with a hot housing market. The increase in new home, condo, and apartment startups is partially due to historically low interest rates, but COVID has fueled the desire for larger living spaces with more versatile and larger outdoor areas. Homes are no longer just a place to cook and sleep but have become home offices, school classrooms, gyms, entertainment centers, and home theaters.
With millions of white-collar employees transitioning to work-from-home the search is on for larger homes with separate office spaces, room for students to attend online schools, indoor and outdoor exercise areas, and home theaters. Homes are now small communities within themselves. This change in lifestyle makes it possible for families to move to cities and states where taxes are lower and housing is more affordable without changing jobs and in some cases schools.
In West Virginia, we partner with seven equipment rental yards.

In addition, it will have a family resource center, lobby, gift shop, cafeteria, and a direct link on the 10th floor to the helipad.
In South Carolina, Discount Lift Rentals has seven equipment rental yards in our extensive network of associates.
Charleston, South Carolina did not believe libraries were a dying breed when they passed a 108.5-million-dollar referendum to build five new libraries. However, these centers of learning are much more than the traditional book stacks and shushing librarians. The fourth of five libraries to be completed, the Bees Ferry West Ashbury Branch, is a state-of-the-art 20,000 square foot facility complete with traditional reading opportunities plus a learning lab, equipped with computers and technology classes.
“Old meets new” with a story room but also a creative studio complete with craft supplies. The Bees Ferry Branch serves a population not covered by other branches and their opening was met with much enthusiasm from the surrounding population.
In addition to the innovations incorporated into the modern libraries, the pandemic has brought back recreational reading. I guess even the worst things have some good in them. Just when our kids have become completely engrossed with electronics, the ancient art of reading for fun reemerged.

Historic funeral home meets high rise development: In mid-town Atlanta an almost century old funeral home will be incorporated into a Portman Holdings Project. The building project will include an office tower, 325 room hotel and a residential highrise. While the exterior of the historic funeral home must be restored to its original look, its purpose will most likely change to become part of a 60,000 square foot restaurant and or music venue. Plans for the project are still somewhat fluid and have been impacted like most things by the COVID pandemic but when once again in full swing you can expect to see construction equipment such as scissor lifts, trenchers, and boom lifts employed on the project.

In August 2021, 15 inches of rain fell on mid-Tennessee taking the lives of 20 people and leaving much destruction to homes, schools, bridges, roads, cell towers, and telephone lines. As clean up had just begun, Tropical Depression Ida then dumped another 2.5 inches of rain in the already flooded areas. Dickson, Hickman, Houston, and Humphrey counties were particularly hit hard and declared disaster areas by the federal government. 27- homes were completely destroyed and over 160 were severely damaged. Waverly elementary and junior high schools were damaged beyond repair and will most likely be rebuilt in new locations. 11 bridges will need major repairs.
