Description of Project: 

Sukut moved more than 17 million cubic yards of dirt to create 268 mountain top lots for this multi-million dollar project that spans 268 graded acres. Sukut used new and innovative approaches to rebuild mountains, making this type of terrain a safer place to build communities. In fact, the use of GPS (Global Positioning System) technology for grade control is reinventing how a job is built.

• 17,500,000 cubic yards of earthwork was completed to create 268 residential pads.
