Through Spring and early Summer, Brubacher crews performed earthwork, utility installation, curb, stone, and paving work as contracted by Arcadia Land Development in preparation for the construction of 87 twin and carriage townhomes. The first phase of the project also included the construction of a box culvert and an arch culvert, along with other improvements, to enhance the storm water control in the region.

Frequent rain was the team's primary challenge during the first phase of the project. After winter, Arcadia chose to soil cement a portion of the road to keep the project on track for early Spring paving. Ed F., Project Manager, recognized Jim Y., Site Superintendent, Abe S., Site Superintendent and Steve G., Pipe Supervisor, for providing creative value engineering to the owner across various site issues.

Brubacher was contracted by RLD Greystone, LLC, to perform site preparation for a portion of a new community of single, twins, and townhomes situated on 598 acres in West Goshen Township in Chester County, PA. This project, which has been in the works for 10 years, will feature a senior living community, 162-acre public park, and many other amenities.

Ron S., Project Manager, recognized the entire team for working flexibly and diligently through the winter and Spring to meet the deadline. He especially recognized the team’s communication skills and grace in working alongside three other contractors. Communication and leadership with the other contractors was key, as each contractor was codependent with the others to complete their portion of the scope of work.

The Brubacher Energy Services team, located in Northern PA, spent much of the year so far on the future site of the nation's 2nd largest power-generating wind mills. Brubacher was initially contracted to perform a small amount of tree trimming along the site's access road; however, the relationship and project has grown significantly. Since then, Brubacher's scope of work has grown to include infiltration berms and basins, rock lined swales, stoning and grading of roads, construction of a staging yard, paving, stump grinding, and much more.

The end use of the site will consist of 25 windmills spaced out over 7 miles of stone and gravel roads. Each wind mill has the capability of producing 3.6 megawatts a day and will serve one of the nation's largest public companies.

The project lacks phone reception in many areas and takes about an hour to drive from end to end. Because of this, transporting equipment and materials and communicating across the site can be difficult. Dave R,, Project Manager, recognized the team for their exceptional planning throughout the project, which included extremely detailed morning huddles.
