Maintaining Focus was Critical for C.D. SMITH CONSTRUCTION during MILWAUKEE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA'S WARNER GRAND THEATRE HISTORIC Wall move as part of Renovations and RESTORATION CONSTRUCTION for the New Bradley Symphony Center.

Maintaining focus is critical to ensuring a job is completed safely and everyone goes home at the end of the day.

Losing focus for even a moment could result in anything from a dropped object, slip or trip, or tragically worse. Just a few seconds of inattentiveness can be the difference between safe and deceased.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣

When a crew works together and stays focused as a team, they can accomplish amazing feats, like moving a 625-ton historic wall 35 feet. The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra historic wall move is an achievement of engineering, but also an accomplishment of a crew staying focused and ensuring everyone thinks safe and works safely.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣

Keys to staying focused include planning ahead and executing the plan. Be prepared and wear all the proper PPE. Ditch the distractions and take time to focus your attention on the task at hand. Get back to the basics so you and your crew members can all go home safely at the end of the work day.⁣⁣
