We've Covered Serious Ground

We’re proud of all the work we’ve done in northeast Indiana over the decades. It’s amazing to think how many tons of dirt we’ve moved around this area. Below is a small sample of projects we’ve been involved in.

While the figures listed may be impressive, it’s more than a numbers game for us. Each job represents a relationship. We promise to be a trustworthy and reliable business partner that thinks, plans and acts responsibly from start to finish. You’ll never see us taking shortcuts. In fact, we’ll always go above and beyond—because we’re not happy unless we deliver more than the client expects. It’s why many of our customers come back to us again and again.
