Newest “equipment” at Sealth/Denny construction site: Goats!

Look who’s just joined the project team at the Westwood site where Chief Sealth High School is being renovated and the new Denny International Middle School is being built: Goats from Rent-A-Ruminant. According to the project team from DKA, the goats are clearing blackberries and other undergrowth near newly planted evergreens on the west/north sides of the site, and will be there for about two weeks. We snagged a quick iPhone clip:

Meanwhile, landscaping work and other components of the current phase of the project may involve heavy equipment on nearby streets, so a doorhanger is being distributed to nearby homes; here’s what it says. Though the project website has a webcam, you’re not going to see the goats on it – they’re up on the slopes rather than down in the thick of the construction.

    The fence is electrified. Don’t let your dogs, kids, self get too close – it will be shocking.

    I am an assistant to the construction manager out at the site and just wanted to give an update that the contractor is putting up a fence (link panel fencing) and will have it in place tonight all along the entire planned goat-grazing area. So, as the goats make their way up the hill you should be able to see them on 27th without getting close to the electric goat fence.

Sorry, comment time is over.
