Project at a Glance

Hillsboro Airport Runway

The Hillsboro Airport is the second busiest airport in Oregon (second only to the Portland International Airport) and is home to the corporate jets of Intel, Nike and Columbia Sportswear, to name a few, as well as numerous smaller aircraft. It is also one of the largest helicopter training schools in the nation.

The Hillsboro Airport Runway 2-20 & Taxiway C Rehabilitation project involved the complete removal and replacement of the existing 2-20 Runway, new construction of Taxiway C in a newly aligned configuration, and the construction of multiple connector taxiways.

Per the contract, Goodfellow Bros., Inc. rotated four crews working alternating 12 hour shifts, to complete the entire removal, asphalt milling, reconstruction, asphalt paving, new lighting, striping and hydro seeding of the intersection, starting Friday night at 10:00 pm. The runways were then successfully reopened for aircraft use by Monday morning at 5:00 am.

Twin Rivers Hatchery Program

The construction of the Twin Rivers Hatchery Program consisted of the installation of a new hatchery facility that was designed to raise both white sturgeon and fresh water Burbot, the first of its kind. 

Goodfellow Bros., Inc. (GBI) worked closely with the Kootenai Tribe of Idaho for nearly one year, prior to entering into a contract for this project. The objective was to assist in the design and constructability reviews and budgeting, and to assist in valuable engineering ideas, in order to get the overall cost of the project within their budget, and gain funding from the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA).

GBI was able to provide the completed facility with all required functions needed to operate under the projected goal! The success of the project is due mainly to the team approach to the work, and consistent interaction with the owner, engineers, and contractors. Any potential issues were resolved early on, before they became costly.

Waimanalo Gulch Landfill

In 2013 Goodfellow Bros., Inc. (GBI) continued its 8 year relationship working with Waste Management of Hawaii at Waimanalo Gulch. In November 2013, GBI completed construction of Cell E8 which will enable the landfill to continue receiving ash from the municipal solid waste incinerator. GBI scope of work consisted of 860,000 CY of rock excavation, onsite hauling of excavated material, crushing and liner system.

The largest part of the project was to excavate the 860,000 CY of rock from a 400’ vertical cut. The typical working area was 60’ wide by 200’ long.  The material was excavated in 24’ horizontal lifts and dozed off the face to a truck load out below. Prior to pushing with Cat D9’s, the material was drilled and blasted by Blasting Technologies, Inc. (BTI, a GBI company).

To avoid the shower of boulders being pushed off the slope by the D9’s, the load out and onsite haul of excavated material took place only during night shifts.  GBI “Night Marchers” used Cat 773 trucks to haul to onsite stockpiles.

Once excavation was complete, GBI prepared the grade for liner installation and the associated drainage system. To provide aggregate materials for the Liner System and offsite GBI projects, the crusher produced sand, base course, pipe bedding (#67 rock) and Rip Rap.

Rich McBride’s team worked double shift for a year on a high risk project with zero injuries and continued GBI’s relationship with a very important client.  Excavation of Cell E9 is just now starting.

The Shores at Kohanaiki Resort

Goodfellow Bros., Inc. (GBI) continues to be the contractor of choice for The Shores at Kohanaiki in Kona. Increment 3 (POD 7) was the fourth phase that GBI completed for Kohanaiki. Phase I, The Residents Facility Road, delivered future golfers and residents to the pristine restaurant and bar while the beach access road leads down to Pine Trees surf spot, and Loop Road winds in and out of the entire Kohanaiki Resort. 

POD 7 is one of ten subdivisions scattered around the private golf course. The work included excavation and grading of 35 custom lots. GBI also performed the installation of water, sewer, irrigation, electrical and gas utilities, drainage structures and AC Paving.
A previous contractor had rough graded the site several years ago but GBI was contracted to regrade the site to a new design. Grading of the lots included 27,000 CY of excavation and embankment and 15,000 CY of processing rock. The lots had to be over excavated into the boulder fill and backfilled with structural material.
Utilities included 3,300 LF of 8” ductile iron waterline, 6” HDPE irrigation line, 3”HDPE sewer force main, electrical conduits and 34 electrical structures. Utility service laterals were also installed to each lot.  10 seepage pits were also installed for drainage along with 7,200 SY of AC paving.

One unique situation GBI came across at the start of Pod 7 was the opening of the golf course to future and potential residents. Increment three sat perfectly in the middle of two holes, and the driving range along the back of the cul-de-sac. It was pretty common finding golfers making their way into the jobsite. The dust control and excavation had to be flawless alongside the golf holes.  GBI quickly learned that the sound of fragmenting (hoeramming) rock 20’ from a tee box isn’t a golfer’s favorite tune in their backswing.
Having worked within the private golf community of Kohanaiki before, GBI was very conscious and sensitive to the day to day operations of the resort. We were aware of the client’s expectations of working within an area that had high end clients and understood the way they preferred the work to be performed.  There are several more years of construction planned at Kohanaiki Resort in the future and GBI is looking forward to the opportunity to continue to be the contractor of choice for this very important client.
