Residents of a La Habra condo complex who have been living with a growing sinkhole since 2019 are now dealing with a second sinkhole, and many of them are angry that repairs still haven't been made. Rick Chambers reports for KTLA 5 News at 10, Mar. 16, 2023
MARINA, Calif., March 14, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- When J.F. Shea Company began a small plumbing company 142 years ago, there were virtually no women in the construction workforce. Today women in the homebuilding industry have a strong representation in sales, marketing, legal, and finance, but there are still relatively few women in the field of construction.
Shea Homes, one of the country's largest privately held homebuilders, is proud to help change that. Shea hired Teichert Construction, who employs an all-women crew, to prepare sites for new homes at The Dunes and The Enclave in Monterey County. Driving huge earth movers to create roads, infrastructure and homesites is no small task. Maneuvering heavy equipment with names like scrapers, rollers, blades and skip loaders requires tremendous skill and precision.
Shea Homes has been transforming the former US Army base of Fort Ord in Marina, California into a modern residential community that combines sustainability features with a connection to the natural environment. When complete, The Dunes will have over 1,200 homesites and is expected to include a main street promenade, hotels, restaurants, art walk, shopping and entertainment, just across Highway 1 from one of California's most picturesque State Beaches.
