December 2017

It is hard to believe that it’s December already! While it may have been challenging at times, it appears that all projects that were supposed to be paved this year will get paved. During the month of November, Valenti-Held Contractor/Developer was hammered with subdivision projects (10) to bid. The projects that we are bidding currently will be early spring projects, with potential for some off-site winter work. The coming year just might be busier than 2017!

November 2017

Valenti-Held Contractor/Developer, Inc. is in the crunch run of the season! We are confidence that all of our paving obligations will be completed before Mother Nature cuts it off. Since last month, Valenti-Held has landed three new projects: Ameriplex Home 2, Hunters Run Amenity Area & Britton Falls Section 14. These projects should start within the next two weeks.
Ameriplex Home 2 project is for Holladay Construction Group and is located just south of I-70. There is approximately 12,000CY’s of dirt with just a small portion of building pad that needs to be filled; the remaining earthwork material will be stockpiled. There is approximately 16 days worth of utilities that will need to be installed this winter. Hunters Run Amenity Area and Britton Falls Section 14 are both located in Fishers. Hunters Run Amenity Area has approximately 5,000CY’s of dirt and 4 days worth of utilities. Britton Falls Section 14 has 4,700CY’s of dirt (dirt was moved with previous section) and 25 days worth of utilities.

October 2017

Since last month, Valenti-Held Contractor/Developer has landed two new projects: Harmony Section 5 (Westfield) and Center Street (Whitestown). These projects will start this month on top of the projects mentioned in last month’s article. Harmony Section 5 is a continuation of the previous four sections that Valenti-Held has done for Estridge, and this section is at the southwest corner of 156th Street and Ditch Road in Westfield. There is approximately 104,000CY’s of dirt and 121 days of utility work. Center Street is a roadway project at Whitestown Crossing that will need to be paved this year.

This section is for Bedrock Builders and has approximately 99,000CY’s of dirt and more than 30 days of utility work. Enclave at Andover Section 2 is located on the southeast side of Andover North Section 1.

July 2017

June has come and gone and while the weather was not always conducive, Valenti-Held Contractor/Developer sure did get a bunch of pipe and dirt moved! Within the last week, we have been awarded a Residence Inn project near I-65 on the south side of Indianapolis for CTI Construction, LLC. This isn’t your typical hotel project in that there is over 70,000 CY’s of earthwork. There is also a decent sized underground detention that will go in as part of our scope. We are still bidding tons of work and the projects keep coming in!

June 2017

June is going to be extremely busy! Valenti-Held Contractor/Developer was recently awarded Heritage at Springmill for SNAP 1 Properties, LLC. This project is located south of 116th Street and west of Springmill Road in Carmel, IN. This project has 32,000CY’s of dirt, 1,800’ of 8” sanitary sewer main, 2,600’ of storm sewer and 1,700’ of 8” water main. The client said one of the main reasons he chose us to do this project was our reputation for doing safe and quality work along with our rapport with the City of Carmel. We are still receiving numerous bid invitations as well!

May 2017

Forewarning: May is going to be extremely busy! In addition to Valenti-Held Contractor/Developer’s current workload, there are various other projects that will be starting soon. Since last month, we have added Harvest Park Section 3 which should provide approximately three weeks worth of utility work and about 25,000CY’s of dirt.

April 2017

This spring is going to be super busy!

The first part of the year is going to be extremely busy and from all indications, this year will be another great one!

December 2016

It is hard to believe that it’s December already!  It appears that Valenti-Held Contractor/Developer will complete all projects on time that were supposed to be paved; we are currently working on completing two of these projects. In addition to getting the asphalt down, Valenti-Held Contractor/Developer has been bidding on some winter work, and it appears that we will have a fairly sizable project to start at the beginning of the year. We are now starting to work on dirt balances, budgets, and pricing for the spring and 2017 work. It appears that 2017 will be another busy year!
