A vast 53-acre outdoor mall that required an improbable acceleration of PDC's schedule to finish by the well-advertised grand opening date. PDC installed 110,000 SF (or 2.5 acres) of highly-detailed hardscapes in just (88) working days within a duration of just (95) total calendar days. The effort, organization and dedication of PDC's crews on this project is still talked about in amazement by all involved.

Ballpark Digest's 2017 Best Ballpark Renovation (MiLB) features concourses in the timeless combo of bluestone and brick, giant baseball bollards and a statue of Greenville's own Shoeless Joe Jackson. The schedule for finished hardscapes was extremely tight to meet opening day. After weeks of two large crews working very hard, the concourses were completed and looked like they had been there forever.

UNC Chapel Hill - The Pit Area Sidewalks (Chapel Hill, NC)
A project that was extremely complicated not necessarily for it's design, but because it was completely remaking one of the busiest pedestrian areas in NC. Work took place over (3) years in phases and with limited access for equipment needed to bring in 3,000+ tons of materials. Heavy duty pavers over a vehicular base serve as a fire lane and permeable pavers with open aggregate base are installed over deep soil cells built around the trees. The Pit floor itself was left mostly untouched to protect the two large Overcup Oak trees.
