Schlouch Incorporated crews work on the steep hillside overlooking the intersection of Bustleton Pike and Philmont Avenue near the Philadelphia city limits. SI is preparing the site for a townhouse community and a small retail development. SI graders shape the Hidden Meadows site, a 90-lot residential subdivision in Lehigh County. One of Schlouch’s many pipe crews excavates a trench and installs pipe at the site. Value engineering at the Douglass Giant site included reusing material recovered from removing an adjoining road as part of the base for the food store’s parking area. It was a short move to transfer the material from the road to the job site. The site is located at County Line Road and Route 100 in Montgomery County, Pa. An SI crew uses a Gradall to backfill recently installed curbing.
