2013 Year End Review
As we look back over this past year, there are several key economic indicators that perhaps the worst is behind us and we can be cautiously optimistic about the future. Our entire staff is back to working full time and have even had to put in overtime on a number of occasions. We even recently hired a new engineer intern to help out with the workload. We also completely overhauled every staff members’ workstations along with our servers to run the latest CAD and BIM software. Our surveying department purchased new GPS equipment to gain even more efficiency in the field.
On the project front, we have enjoyed seeing a variety of projects come to fruition along with an uptick in projects coming through the door. We have even begun to see some subdivisions that were shelved for the past 7-8 years come back to life. If the saying is true that “commercial follows residential”, then we believe that 2014 can be a great year for our economy. Below is a brief summary of just some of the projects we have worked on this past year.
- Farm Credit West New Regional Office – Tulare, CA
- College of the Sequoias – Tulare, CA
- South County Detention Facility – Porterville, CA
- Burton Elementary – Porterville, CA
- Kings County Jail – Hanford, CA
- Campus Drive Road Extension & Railroad Crossing – Hanford, CA
- Vita-Pakt Citrus Products Warehouse Expansion – Lindsay, CA
- Surf-Thru Car Wash – Tulare, CA
- City of Tulare Sidewalk Improvements – Tulare, CA
- Parkside Village Subdivision – Dinuba, CA
- Perfection Pet Foods – Visalia, CA
- Wood Ranch – Visalia, CA
Another positive about the list above is that the projects come from a variety of sources including government, educational, industrial, commercial and residential as well. They also aren’t necessarily concentrated in Visalia-Tulare only, but branch out to our local communities as well. We hope with all these positive signs that 2014 will be prosperous for all of us.
