2011 was a great year for us at Blue Sky and we have been part of some very amazing projects in the area. So, this post is not a tip or a trick but a shameless promotion of our top 5 accomplishments of 2011.
1. LeMay- America’s Car Museum and Showfield – located in the Tacoma Dome parking lot, the LeMay Car Museum has been one of the most talked about construction projects in Tacoma for the past few years. Blue Sky was subcontracted by JTM Construction to install landscape pavers in the showfield area, where the museum will host car shows. We also planted trees and completed hydroseeding that will provide protection from erosion. The museum is slated to open June 2, 2012 and features a 9 acre campus dedicated to the history of the world’s automotive collection.
2. Lakes High School, Clover Park School District – Blue Sky was subcontracted by FieldTurf to install underground irrigation, plant trees and small shrubs, and lay soil and bark. It was necessary to stay within the school district’s tight budget, which we were able to accomplish by efficiently planning time, labor, and materials.
3. Hampton Inn, Puyallup – located near Good Samaritan Hospital on Meridian, we installed trees, soil, and shrubs to complement the finished product of the brand new hotel. Hampton, part of the Hilton family is an excellent addition to the lodging options in Puyallup and is within close proximety to downtown and South Hill Puyallup as well as easy freeway access to Tacoma, Mount Rainier, and the Seattle area.
4. 520 Plaza, Bellevue – Blue Sky’s main role was to replace old, tired landscaping with new trees, shrubs, and perennial plants that refresh and clean up the look of the beds surrounding business, sidewalks, and signs. We also provide weekly maintenance that includes litter and debris clean up, weeding, and occasional pruning.
5. Hawthorne Lane Apartments, Graham – We were subcontracted by Dawson Construction, Inc. to complete the landscaping portion of this project including planting shrubs and trees and laying sod. Additionally we did the design and installation of an efficient irrigation system.
Thanks for a fantastic 2011 and we look forward to what 2012 will bring.
