Here we replaced a sidewalk in front of a local daycare center. The owners enjoyed Doc's attention to detail when he matched the swirl marks in the existing concrete!

Commercial Parking Lot

We recently completed a commercial parking lot in New Castle, PA that included installing curbs and sidewalks. Here is a picture of Nick (aka "Doc") building the curb forms to pour the next day.

Swimming Pool - Cranberry

Installed a residential 14x24 swimming pool (4' to 7' deep) in Cranberry Township, the Pittsburgh North Hills area for a couple of new homeowners. This project included excavating the back yard, installing the pre-fab pool, grading, and landscaping the lot. Here we off-loaded the backhoe and delivered the pool. Then we dug the deep end and graded it smooth. Doc, Kevin, and Rich started setting up the pool walls. Next, we set the steps on the back wall. Then we poured concrete and backfilled the edges with gravel. Next we set the fence and filled the pool. Voila!
