Midland, Va., June 6, 2017: Easi-Set Worldwide, a subsidiary of Smith-Midland Corporation (SMID) project update.

First of all, the National Parks System spans 417 areas over 84 million square acres. Ever since 1916, its roughly 22,000 employees strive to keep the open land in each state and U.S. territory.  To remain true to its natural habitat and enjoyable for visitors. Secondly, maintaining the shelters and restrooms is part of that responsibility. The crew at the Ozark National Scenic Riverways in Van Buren, Mo., recently replaced one of its restrooms with a precast concrete building from Easi-Set Buildings.

The new Easi-Set Restroom was manufactured and installed by McCann Concrete Products Inc. of Dorsey, Illinois, a licensed producer of Easi-Set Buildings.

Finally, “The National Parks Service does a tremendous job providing and maintaining lodging and facilities for the millions of visitors each year, “ says Moffette Tharpe, managing director of Easi-Set Worldwide. “Precast concrete buildings are ideal for national parks because they are strong structures that require minimal maintenance. As a result, they can withstand extreme weather conditions from coast to coast. Easi-Set Buildings offers a variety of restroom models with different finishes and most noteworthy customization options, allowing each park to offer amenities specific to its needs.”

Remember Easi-Set Mountain West Precast can solve your building or restroom problems, find out how.

Trump Administration Focuses on Infrastructure

Our new President is getting a few things right for all Americans: jobs and infrastructure

Trump Can Fund New Infrastructure Projects Without Raising Taxes, Governors Show How

President Donald Trump talked about rebuilding America’s infrastructure during his first address to a joint session of Congress, touting his intention to erect “new roads, bridges, tunnels, airports and railways gleaming across our beautiful land.”

This comes as no surprise. Shortly after his upset victory over Hillary Clinton last November, Trump called for an injection of $1 trillion in spending on roads, tunnels, bridges, airports, and other infrastructure projects. All this talk of new infrastructure spending has perked the interest of Democrats like Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who said he would like to work with President Trump on such an initiative, so long as it entails spending a large sum of taxpayer dollars and no tax relief.
