Case Study: Land Preparation for 50 Acres in Housing Development

Alden Place

Alden Management Company, Inc.
Cornwall, Lebanon County, Pennsylvania

Alden Management Company needed a contractor to help them with clearing property and site grading for their housing development, Alden Place. While some of the properties within this development had been sold, there were many more that were still for sale.

The challenge was to clear property around newly built homes and to keep the roads and work area clean so the land remained attractive to potential buyers. In addition to keeping our work area clean, we also needed to make sure all of the current residents were aware of the work we were doing to minimize risks. Brubacher worked safely and efficiently for each land preparation to ensure both of these challenges were overcome.

Due to the nature of this project -- clearing property in small doses -- the cost can be burdensome to continuously move in and out. We took an extra step on our end to help the Alden Management Company manage these costs. We coordinated with them to make sure clearing property was done around the time we had other land preparation projects in their area, so we could keep their mobilization costs to a minimum. In the end, we cleared a total of approximately 50 acres in Alden Place over the course of 16 years.

While our land preparation expertise isn’t solely in clearing property for housing developments, this is one example of how our team handled planning and communication for clearing property to benefit a customer.
