Local Spotlight Making

Local Spotlight Making Way for the American Dream Local 12 Operators create new neighborhoods in Southern California THE RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT company Pardee Homes has begun construction of the Skyline Ranch Project in the city of Santa Clarita, which lies in the northern section of Los Angeles County, California. Initial excavating and grading work for the 592 acre site was awarded to Independent Construction Company. Local 12 Operating Engineers will be moving approximately 26 million cubic yards of material. Within the 592 acre residential portion, mass grading will provide for major roads and infrastructure, establish drainage patterns and the creation of building pads for the various land uses within the project. The finished development will include 1,220 single-family homes, a 10 acre elementary school site, and a 10 acre park along with 5 additional recreational areas. The project will also include two 1.5 million gallon water tanks. Model homes are scheduled to be built within 18 months and completion of the excavation and grading is expected to take two years. Independent Construction Company has deployed 75 Local 12 equipment operators that include grade checkers. In addition, Local 12 heavy duty repairmen and welders are also on site. As the work progresses, it is possible up to 20 more Local 12 members could see work on the project. [story & photos] IUOE Local 12 16 INTERNATIONAL OPERATING ENGINEER FALL 2017 17
