Duluth is Growing Their PCI, You Can Too.

screen-shot-2016-10-25-at-6-46-50-pm

 

Nothing, and I mean nothing makes us happier than going out and saving local agencies millions of dollars year after year by implementing an accurate inventory, pavement management program and budget for them. Except for one thing, going back each year there after and doing a third of their network for them!!!!!

We have seen the TBG crew on the consulting side of our business travel over 150,000 miles over the last three years to set up and train cities and counties on how to get their pavements under control and avoid those sleepless nights.

We have also seen the ugly side of the business in our role as a technical trainer where we have had to go in and clean up some rather lack luster pavement management implementations. Perhaps we know too much yikes.

On a positive note, the thing that gets us most excited for sure is going back to see our annual clients, and continuing to see them do more roads for less money and less carbon footprint using MicroPAVER™ or StreetSaver® and following the Three Legged Stool System of Pavement Management that I outline in the Book on Better Roads and teach at IPMA™ Academy.

In this IPMA™ Tip of the Week you are going to get a chance to see an example of this as Audrey Turner, Public Works Director from the City of Duluth walks you through how her PCI is rising each year with the same little budget! Then as a bonus you can watch Jason Spencer APM Master demonstrate how you can input your work history each year in the MTC StreetSaver® software.

Please sit back and enjoy this week’s episode! Be ready to hit the rewind button as there are tons of nuggets here for you to learn from so that you can become the next Pavement Management RockSTAR!!!!

Don’t hesitate to contact me at 404-316-9792 for any reason!

PS We have the half price special on for the next three counties and cities to get started anywhere in USA (actually there are only two spots left as one City in GA just took advantage of that this morning!

PSS TBG is one of only a handful of consultants that have passed the rigorous MTC Prequalification Examination so we are now official P-TAP Prequalified. If you want Certified and Prequalified expert pavement management let’s talk!

PSSS We have had a surge of calls lately to do live training for MicroPAVER™ and StreetSaver® and our schedule is filling up quickly for the cooler months. If you would like to do some online or live training with us, let us know!

PSSSS Don’t forget the AZ Co-Op Agreement can be used to “tag on” and contract with us lickity-split!

PSSSSS If you are at NWPMA in Portland stop by booth #15 and let’s have a chat, my presentation is on Thursday morning!

OK here is the video link again!

Your IPMA™ Tip of the Week
LIVE FROM St. Charles, MO

You know, a lot of folks are starting to get excited about pavement management and rightfully so.

Be forewarned however that not all consultants out there providing these services are delivering all that they promise.

Recall that Scott McDonald and I did a podcast session on Better Roads Radio a while back, here is the link http://ipma.co/betterroadsradio/2014/01/16/episode-3-the-one-where-blair-corners-scott-mcdonald-ipma-advisory-board-member-and-paver-guru/ where we discussed the key essentials in setting up your data base.

Well, apparently there are still firms out there, buzzing around collecting data all over the country that pay little if any heed to the last M and R date or pavement section type for that matter.

Then, as you may have guessed our team swoops in and helps aid the agencies in fixing all the corrupted data that is input into the PAVER™ data base for your agency. (BTW, the same stuff likely happens with other software programs out there).

If your city or county is interested in setting up a pavement management program, and I don’t see why you wouldn’t be, take a look at this short video to learn the key essentials to pavement management basics SO THAT YOU DON”T HAVE TO ENDURE THE PAIN OF FIXING EVERYTHING at a later date.

Hope that didn’t offend anyone LOL.
Best, Blair

For the life of me, I can’t imagine why every city and county in America, or the world for that matter are not all managing their pavements.

At the bare minimum at least grab a copy of my Amazon #1 Best Seller, The Book on Better Roads, Saving YOUR Crumbling Roads with Practical Pavement Management!

320x50a

Geez, I mean it is free…. you can grab it at http://www.blairbarnhardt.com.

You see, it costs about 2 or 3 cents per square yard to set up a brand new pavement management system with boots on the ground rating and expert inventory!

Your jurisdiction will go on to save 10 bucks a square yard every time, literally saving millions each calendar year by doing the right treatment on the right road at the right time with the right contractor and for the right reason! You can thank us later, now sit back and enjoy the video!

Be sure to LIKE and Share all over social media!!!! If 50 cities or counties in 50 states would do this in 2016, we could save this great country 2.5 BILLION DOLLARS and have better roads for everybody for less money and less carbon footprint!

PS Heed the Naysayers, this Great Country has a bunch of folks that would LOVE to continue rehabilitating this Country’s 4 million miles of roads the exact same way they did it in 1956 while they order up their private jets on their iPhone apps… there I said it. We can make our crumbling roads GREAT AGAIN!!!! Blair : )

This IPMA™ Tip of the Week was by far the most watched and shared video we had for all of 2015. You folks watched this thousands of times!

I guess the topic of pavement management, and pavement preservation are hot buttons now! Especially when we can get out and put these types of cost effective treatments down for a few bucks a square yard and get those damn ratepayers to stop complaining!!!!

Anyhow, I took some time today at the North Chicago KOA to add a bit of spice to the original recording! After a few microwave meals and a few Blue Moons (with orange slices of course) voila! Please share and enjoy, and if you want to learn more about the HA5® High Density Mineral bond please contact any of our IPMA™ Charter Members, Holbrook, Andale, or Whitaker Contracting!!! see http://www.ipma.co for their contact info!!!

HERE IS YOUR TICKET ⬅︎TO ⬅︎SUCCESS

It’s for the LIVE Pavement Management Webinar hosted by Blair Barnhardt, APM.

Here are the four big things we’re covering:

1. How to stretch your budget with proactive and practical pavement management so your Mayor or Chairman will look like a RockSTAR (even though you are the one that did all the work, LOL).

2. How to collect pavement management distress data with StreetSaver® 8 distresses for asphalt and 7 for concrete roadways and parking lots.

3. How and why to run three different budget scenarios, unconstrained budget (as if you won the lottery with your local agency), target driven scenarios and regular budget scenarios (based on what money you currently have and expect to have in the long run).

4. There will be many more nuggets of information each Session along with Q and A at the end of each session, be prepared to send a list of questions to Lori (reply to this email) in advance and/or type them into the chat box during the live sessions.

WARNING: This is LIVE. I’m using GoTo Webinar, which can only hold 1,000 people. So it’s first come, first served. Register here.

P.S. Forgot to mention this! Naturally, I’ll be on to take your questions at the end.
