Scharbauer Brothers & Company, Inc. (SBC) has been at the forefront of land development in Midland, Texas, since 1986.     

In 2011, Parkhill designed a development called Grandridge Estates to serve primarily empty-nesters and retirees with homes that have little lawn maintenance and quiet streets, but enough space for kids and grandkids to visit. Together with its sister development of Grandridge Park, the land encompasses about 15 acres.  

The project included enough linear feet of waterline and wastewater pipes to equal five football fields plus paving equaling the length of at least 30 football fields. An erosion and flood control plan was essential because the Jal Draw channel runs directly north of the site. As with many City of Midland projects, it also contained utility extensions at the new location.
