Ft. Knox, KY
General Contractor: H.W. Pence
This job included mass earth work of over 90,000 cubic yards, Installation of Access Roads, Storm Drainage, and Target Site Obstacles built of Concrete Block and Timber Logs.
Not only did it include mass earth moving, but also construction work and placement of stone retaining walls. We also built several 250-yard long wood-lined trenches and machine gun bunkers at their shop.
“We manufactured our own product for this job,” Robards says. “During the winter, instead of running dozers, our guys were swinging hammers. But it kept everybody working.”
