Commercial Groundwork Projects

Jefferson County Health & Wellness Building

Skanska USA hired us for this project because of our local, Madras connections. This project was surrounded by St. Charles Hospital, residential homes, and retirement/assisted living facilities so there were a lot of pedestrians and onlookers that we had to work around every day. With Skanska’s help we didn’t have any issues or complaints. Just old folks sitting on their porches, full of smiles and waves. We did everything groundwork, and then some. To level the site we trucked 10,000 yards of dirt off the site. We installed all the underground utilities, prepped for the new building foundation, built parking lots and paved them. We took care of all the site concrete as well.

Madras Airport Heliport

We moved 5000 cu yds of dirt and built a gravel pad for firefighting helicopters to land on during fire season.

On this project we worked as a subcontractor for Kirby-Nagelhout Construction. The new building is built on a hill of solid rock, so we had to break out about 3000 yards of rock to level the site.

Earthmoving, utilities, building foundation prep, parking lot grading, and finally paving the new street and parking lots servicing both the new grade school and the existing high school.

We are working for the property owner/ developer on this project in Madras.

Then we laid all the asphalt on the brand new streets.
