- Description of Project:
Sukut entered into a joint venture with Goodfellow Bros. and Pacific States Environmental Contractors, the SPSG Partners, to begin a one-year fire cleanup project in Butte County, CA. The Camp Fire went through Paradise, CA back in November 2018, destroying more than 153,000 acres. Sukut has been appointed as a Managing Partner and tasked with fire debris removal and hauling of the burned debris. SPSG Partners moved and safely disposed of approximately 1.4 million tons of metals, concrete, ash, contaminated soil, and other debris generated from the fire. These efforts employed over 1,000 laborers, operators, truckers, and other types of field staff. The SPSG Partners completed the project ahead of schedule.
The project won multiple industry awards, including:
- 2020 ASCE Project of the Year
- 2020 UCON Safety Award for the “Most Unique Safety Project”
