Construction isn’t a 9-5 career. If that’s what you’re looking for, go elsewhere.
Infrastructure is a necessity - most roads, bridges, and pipelines can’t be shut down for improvements. That means long and often unusual hours to complete the project as quickly as possible with minimum disturbance to the public.
This photo is a good example - night time concrete pours are the norm, especially over summer. Concrete is a chemical reaction that generates heat, curing the concrete. The warmer it is, the faster it sets up. That’s why it must be poured at the middle of the night when it’s the coolest part of the day to ensure it can be formed to spec.

Here’s our PC1250 loading a 775G truck for a quarry development project.
Many quarries have relied on Sinacola to bring them to fruition. The stone that material companies are after often lies beneath a layer of worthless dirt, also known as overburden. The overburden is removed and hauled to create a base for the processing plant and other quarry infrastructure.

Some Sunday @mariosinacola PC1250 loading action at 150% speed! I’m standing immediately behind the camera with an enormous stupid grin on my face.

No dirt can be moved without the transport drivers who bring us the tools we need! Awesome photo from @bearconstruct. We recently found this profile, he has a lot of awesome construction photos on there! Nice work.
