On October 28th, Sunjoint Development LLC (Sunjoint) held a groundbreaking ceremony for the Terraces at Walnut project, for which Sukut Construction (Sukut) was selected to serve as a general contractor. The event, followed by a celebration dinner, was organized to mark the start of construction on a rough grading project to lay ground for the future residential development in Walnut, CA.
The future 49-acre development includes a mix of housing types, a commercial district, parks, recreation areas, parking, streets, trails, walkways, public infrastructure improvements, such as stormwater basins, as well as an open space, such as landscaped slopes. The residential part of the development will include 211 single-family detached homes and 79 townhomes. The commercial district will house 16,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space.
As a general contractor on the project, Sukut will rough grade 2.2 million cubic yards of dirt and construct Verdura walls. The work also includes installation of recycled water, on-site and off-site sewer, on-site and off-site storm drain, on-site and off-site street improvements, traffic signals, as well as on-site and off-site landscaping and dry utilities.
Sukut looks forward to working with Sunjoint, MBI Companies, NMG Geotechnical, Murow Development Consultants, and Soil Retention on this project.
