Dmitry, are the colors set in stone? Not that its a problem but red, black and orange, black are used alot. You might blend in rather than stand out. Look at a metalic orange or floursanent color. I like 3 if you could imply motion better. Gradients in the archs, or dividing the arcs so pieces go from apart to solid. Good solid work your not far away.

4a, no doubt.
More space between the name and the text could make it look better

I don't know what it is, but this is one of the nicest marks I've ever seen in here. It just has a great vibe to it.

it was like "nice.. but i want you to make some changes.."
and here is the rezult..

at moments like this i hate myself:-(

anyway #1 was best one for me (love contrast between straight and curved shapes)

Dmitry, I understand the client's desire to have more forceful (rather than primarily dynamic) typography, but I'm with you in saying that I think that revision detracts from the overall logo. It's still very effective, though, particularly with that nice marque.

Perhaps this is a regionally biased viewpoint, but where I live currently (in the US), orange is the "universal colour" to represent construction
