May 2016 – The American Public Works Association (APWA) Silicon Valley Chapter presented its prestigious 2016 Contractor of the Year Award to Power Engineering Construction Company for their exceptional efforts on engineering-construction projects in the public works sector.
“I can’t think of a better way to celebrate our 30th year in business than to be nominated by a long-term client, Silicon Valley Clean Water (SVCW) and awarded 2016 Contractor of the Year by APWA, an association that exists to improve our communities,” says Ken Lindberg, Vice President.
Power Engineering and Silicon Valley Clean Water have been working together for over 30 years, most intensely these past 4 years on the 48-inch Force Main Reliability Improvement Project in San Carlos and Redwood City. As part of this project Power constructed 3,300 linear feet of new pipeline using jacking shafts and microtunneling, ground probing and jet grouting among other construction methods. The approach used to construct the jacking and receiving shafts saved both time and money helping SVCW complete work on a temporary easement well ahead of schedule.
Teresa Herrera, Assistant Manager & Authority Engineer of SVCW says, “Power embodies the spirit of collaboration, creativity and cooperation. When working on projects, Power builds relationships with all of the project team members, resulting in a larger, cohesive team who work together to deliver the best possible project.”
Along with Power’s award, SVCW was awarded Project of the Year for the 48-inch Force Main Reliability Improvement Project!
APWA Awards were established to promote excellence in Public Works Projects by recognizing the partnership between the managing agency, the consultant, architect, engineer team, and the contractor, who all work together to successfully complete Public Works Projects.
