Ready to Excavate …

Monday, December 28th, 2009

We’re going to take advantage of a window of clear weather and do our best to get our underground CUDO cistern in place this week.  This is a major component of our site infrastructure that will require excavating over 45 cubic yards of material while it is being installed.

Engaging Toubar Equipment Company Inc.

We need to do the excavation quickly, accurately and safely.  When assessing which contractor could do this, we immediately thought of Toubar Equipment Company Inc.  Their operator, Jose, worked on our site for a week in December 2008 and excavated the lower level for us.  He was fantastic.

Bryan spoke with Charlie and they had the equipment available with Jose to operate it.

They mobilized the equipment this afternoon.

Even with the gate closed, everyone driving North on Winchester could see the excavator over the top of the fence.  We're going to do some digging!

Looking inside the fence, the excavator is certainly large enough to remove the stump and complete the project.  We believe it is always good to have a bit more machine than the minimum required (size matters).
