Rock Creek construction, tree removal to begin

Photos and Story by

During the next few days the beginning phases of the long-anticipated Building 7 remodel will start at the Rock Creek Campus. Safety fences, gravel pathways and tree removal will be among the first steps in this process. Nine trees have been identified for removal. Rock Creek’s General contractor Fortis Construction is in contact with members of the Art Department and with Building Construction Technology Program to see that all reasonable efforts are made to salvage and recycle all usable lumber. New trees will be planted around Building 7 as soon as the weather and construction traffic allows.

Tree removal can be difficult, but of the nine trees that are to be cut down, one is diseased and the others are so close to the building that removing them for construction expansion is the only option. For more planning and construction news, visit PCC’s Bond Website.

I am currently a student at PCC. I am also a sales rep for a lagitamate and licenced tree service. My question is: How do I get to bid on the tree jobs for PCC?

John–The trees identified for removal are now down. Fortis Construction has the lead on this entire project so going forward, you might just want to add your name to a list of folks they might call on at a later date.

The construction project at Rock Creek campus involved the removal of nine trees–most of them on the small side. They are now down and our art department is working to recycle as much of the wood as possible. At this time, there are no additional trees scheduled for removal.
