In the summer of 2018, we built this 24-lot subdivision for MainVue Homes near the town of Bonney Lake in Pierce County. We handled all aspects of this challenging project, from the initial site clearing through the finishing asphalt work. Our main goal on Sky Island was to knock out the job quickly without many change orders, which we managed to accomplish over the course of this five-month project.
Sky Island required extensive earthmoving and grading, as the total cut to fill was over 85,000 yards, and this is still one of the largest dirt moves we’ve done to date. The biggest challenge at Sky Island was running an HDPE welded sewer pipe down an extremely steep hill, which required concrete anchors to hold in place. To accomplish this goal, we actually stuck a bucket on one of our logging machines, which enabled us to safely dig the hole we needed.
