12 AL CONSTRUCTION NEWS JAN-MAR 2018 Bailey-Harris Announces Promotion of Russell Harris to President of Company BAILEY-HARRIS CONSTRUCTION HAS ANNOUNCED THE PROMOTION OF RUSSELL HARRIS TO PRESIDENT OF THE COMPANY. The son of Founder and previous President, Allen Harris, Russell has lived and breathed construction his whole life. An Auburn, Alabama native, Russell graduated from Southern Polytechnic State University in Atlanta, Georgia with a degree in Construction Management. Russell served a 2-year tenure with The Conlan Company while in school in Atlanta, and immediately returned to Auburn to join the Bailey-Harris team upon graduation. At Bailey-Harris, Russell went straight into the field, working on several large projects in Montgomery and Auburn. He worked his way up to Superintendent with his last project in that role being a $20 million pharmaceutical facility. Since coming into the office 7 years ago, Russell has been in the project management realm over multiple projects. Possessing the gift of administration and planning, Russell has taken an active lead in corporate management, company growth, strategic planning and business development. Following the succession plan laid out in previous years, Bailey-Harris is pleased to announce Russell's elevation to President of the Company. "Being prone to get into the details, means and methods, I am happy to say that Russell has the concomitant gifts that will complement not only what I do, but what the entire Bailey-Harris team does, as we take much gratitude for having the capability and supreme personnel to serve our precious clients in a construction and design-build capacity," remarks Allen Harris, who will assume the position of Chief Executive Officer. Russell, who resides in Auburn with his wife Melissa and two children, states he is thoroughly excited about the opportunity presented to him. "It is a true honor to have the opportunity to build on the successful foundation laid by my father. He has poured his heart and soul into this Company and is the key to what we have become today. I am humbled to be considered worthy of this position and hope to continue the legacy he began almost 40 years ago." Stopping the truck or car dead in its tracks, the DSC501 protects against a "second hit" risk from a second vehicle. The stadium preferred installing these barricades in a more industrial look, wanting them to be "seen." Five retractable DS C720 bollards were used at the pedestrian entry areas. This is Delta's highest crash rated bollard, stopping a 15,000 pound vehicle at 50 mph. The bollard will stop and destroy much larger vehicles than those tested at very high velocities. The DS C720 is 35 inches tall and 15 inches wide. At Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the bollards feature brushed stainless steel sleeves. At the loading docks, 39 of Delta's fastest, smallest and shallowest foundation barricades were implemented. Chosen especially for high speed applications and ease of installation, the cost effective DSC2000 barrier is K12 crash certified with no penetration, meaning it will stop a 15,000 pound vehicle traveling 50 mph dead in its tracks. The ten-inch shallow foundation also reduces installation complexity, time, materials and corresponding costs. Lastly, 50 DSC680 shallow foundation fixed bollards with stainless steel sleeves protect pedestrian areas. They secure any unprotected locations where vehicle bombers and errant drivers have no obstacles. The system also includes Delta Scientific hydraulic power units and features touchscreen controls. "Delayed by roof issues, the Mercedes-Benz Stadium challenged us with a condensed schedule to provide one of the world's most secure vehicle access systems," avows Martina. "I'm proud to say that our team completed the work on time and walked away from the project with another pleased client." "DELAYED BY ROOF ISSUES, THE MERCEDES-BENZ STADIUM CHALLENGED US WITH A CONDENSED SCHEDULE TO PROVIDE ONE OF THE WORLD'S MOST SECURE VEHICLE ACCESS SYSTEMS. I'M PROUD TO SAY THAT OUR TEAM COMPLETED THE WORK ON TIME AND WALKED AWAY FROM THE PROJECT WITH ANOTHER PLEASED CLIENT." –Brent Martina, President, Tusco BUILDING ALABAMA | PROJECTS
