Hi I am new to this forum, So Hello to everyone out there in cyber land.

I would like to ask a ? to those of you in Florida, Daytona Beach and surrounding areas.

My husband is looking for some work. He is a Foreman/Mason/Stone mason/ brick layer. With 15 yrs exp.

He likes working on commercial projects, since they last longer. He has searched high and low trying to locate more steady work in the past several months.

My ? here is does anyone know of any commercial jobs in any of the areas mentioned above? that are ready to go in this phase?

It would be of tremendous help if he didn't have to drive and waste gasoline that we don't have the extra for right now with his work being so slow. Trying to keep from losing our things our home.

Please... post any leads you may have. It would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

hoping for more leads.

Sorry to post this ? again, I didn't have that big a response on the first post. Not sure why maybe not enough traffic here, or there just plain isn't any construction going on anywhere within a 1oo mile radius.

I was asking on the last thread if anyone knows where some commercial construction is going up? My husband needs work, in the masonry field. He is a foreman/brick mason, block mason, stone mason. with 15 yrs exp.

The work around here is either not ready, stalled, or they have all ready hired their crew.

We need help gas prices are out of sight and searching fo rwork with limited funds is hard to do. SO.. we need extra eyes.

The work here in Palm Coast is either like I stated above or they are tilt walls or just plain not ready. Just because they are pushing dirt around doesn't mean they are ready yet. So if you see any where there is a lot of block or brick or stone lying around they are soon ready to start.

PLEASE.. post if you spot anything with a 100 mile radius of Palm Coast. It would be much appreciated. THANKS SO MUCH!

We're quite a distance from Daytona Beach here in Jacksonville, so I'm going to move your thread to the main Florida forum where you're likely to get more feedback

Kohl's has broken ground in Palm Coast. Just the ground clearing has been done so far. Don't have any other details.

Default Thanks for the responses

Hoping that there will be more added. So far those jobs mentioned need no help their crews are all ready working and hired for the job.

Looking for bigger jobs like condos, commercial buildings. They last longer.. also it also depends on what phase they are at. Some are just pushing dirt around yet and not ready for the walls. Also some of them are building things now with tilt walls and not block so just because they are building a huge commercial building it does not mean work for my husband. In his line of work he need anything block, brick, rock, stone, one on top of the other stuff. LOL

Thanks again for all the replies. Hope he finds something soon, we are running out of options.

He is centrally located so all surrounding areas of Palm Coast is great.

Is Jacksonville out of the question? Tough time around here to be in construction. The company I used to work for went from 35 guys (on overtime) down to 6, 2 of whom are part time.

Default No that is why I am asking

Within the one hundred mile radius anything available is a option if it is enough hours.

I am agreeing with your observation though, jobs in the construction field right now are scarce.
