He described early means of transportation to the summit.
On behalf of the Association, thank you to all those who were able to attend one of our favorite events of the year. We enjoyed celebrating another successful year with the AGC of NH membership.
The chapters agree that PLAs cause negative effects in the construction industry by decreasing competition and placing unfair limitations on open shop contractors. The Association urged USACE to allow prime contractors to decide whether a PLA is appropriate for a particular project. Click here to find the survey response letter in its entirety.

AGC of NH believes that the New England General Permit will have far ranging consequences on both the developer and contractor communities. The Association calls upon the Corps to consider a longer period of review of at least six months to one year, combined with public hearings and workshops allowing for greater input from the regulated public.
Further, the Association believes that the current New England General Permit will have a negative impact on an already fragile economic recovery and provide little benefit to protection of the environment or to meeting the goals of the Clean Water Act.
For a copy of the letter please click here. Copies of the AGC of NH letter were also forwarded to Governor Hassan, NHDES Commissioner Thomas Burack, and the NH Congressional Delegation. AGC of NH will continue to monitor the progress of this important issue and provide updates to members as information becomes available.
The confusion arose over “work on the site” as some interpreted that the truck drivers were performing work on the jobsite when making their deliveries. In an effort to reduce the confusion, AGC of NH’s Gary Abbott met with the NH DOT Commissioner Christopher Clement, the NH Department of Labor Acting Commissioner David Wihby, and Jay Ankenbrock of the NH DOT Compliance Office. The June 26 meeting resulted in an agreement that truckers making deliveries to and from a project are exempt.
This exemption only applies to RSA 228:4-b. The agreement does no change requirements under other statutes or regulations regarding who is required to have workers’ compensation or a written safety plan. Additionally, it is important to note that the exemption does not apply if material is being moved from one location to another on site.
Please contact the chapter office at (603) 225-2701 with any questions.
