Site Logistics

The project site was originally 90% trees and situated on an elevated slope. In order to prepare the site for construction, we removed over 5000 cubic yards of spoils. In addition, we installed a large underground storm detention system which involved another 10,000 cubic yards of spoils to be hauled off. Due to tight site constraints, we utilized the neighboring lot to the north to install panels on site.
