Winning the Day

Wiping a bead of sweat from his brow and assessing his surroundings, Blake Correia candidly summarizes the scope of the project at hand.

“There are 200 lots in this neighborhood,” he says, pausing to reflect, “and we’re replacing the entire water system.”

The project requires digging trenches for an extensive network of piping, precisely placing new infrastructure, and backfilling all of the excavated areas. Further down the line, Correia Excavators will be responsible for the road reconstruction that ultimately ties a bow on the project.

Taken as a whole, the enormity of the undertaking could seem over-whelming for his tight-knit crew. But Correia exudes a calm practicality: Focus on the little things. Win the day. And the small victories will add up to something big.
