About This Project
This is a nine-phase project to build a new 15-acre single-family residential development in White House, Tennessee. Southern Site already completed Phases Four and Five, and we currently have Phases Six, Seven, and Eight under construction.
Our responsibilities at Summerlin include erosion control (including silt fence, matting, and hydroseeding), mass excavation, sewer, water, storm drainage, and underground electrical. We also managed the paving subcontractor.
Challenges and Unique Features
Most of the Summerlin job site had about two feet of topsoil and other organic material on the surface that we had to excavate, but Phases Four and Five were both very short on material. We had to borrow material on-site, and then backfill excess topsoil that we undercut to fill that borrow area.
Phase Four also had about 500 feet of 15-foot-deep sewer, which posed another challenge to our crews due to the need to use trench boxes.
Between the five phases of this project that Southern Site worked on, we ended up moving 165,000 CY of dirt, with approximately 40,000 CY of undercut. The utility installation was also extensive, including 2,738 LF of sewer, 2,770 LF of water line, 3,624 LF of storm drain, and 3,595 LF of electric.
We developed a total of 103 residential lots at Summerlin. Our two grading crews did outstanding work on this project, as they successfully managed the on-site borrow and backfill operations without too much trouble.
