The Ridge Apartments was experiencing an erosion issue needing to be addressed which effected the adjoining open space of the complex and impacted two of the apartment buildings. After a substantial rehab of the 80 unit affordable housing complex, funds were minimal. However, with State and City inspections imminent and undermining of the integrity of both the buildings and open space areas, the solution seemed almost unattainable, until many hands joined the effort.
It was all hands on deck for this coordinated effort to place preventative erosion controlled stem walls in strategic locations along the steep slope. This effort provided Angell Job Corp participants an opportunity for education and work experience under the instruction of their masonry instructor. Thanks to Devil’s Lake Rock Company, who went above and beyond to provide additional materials at a discounted rate for the project to be successful. NW Legacy Contractors were the General Contractors who donated time to the completion of the project.
