Downtown Renovation Project, Waterford, CA – Rob navigated through StanCOG and Caltrans Local Assistance to secure $1.5 Million in CMAQ and RSTP dollars to fund a much-needed face-lift to the streets that comprise Downtown Waterford.  Drawing from the best elements of other downtown renovation projects in the Central Valley, Rob created a design that has made Downtown Waterford much more inviting to the local residents and much more pedestrian-friendly.  The project was completed under budget and just in time for a big “trunk-or-treat” celebration by Waterford residents on Halloween night. 


Valley View Water Tank, City of Oakdale, CA – Rob prepared plans and specifications for a new 1 MG concrete tank, associated piping and site improvements with Cort Abney.  It was truly been a collaborative effort between the City Cort, and Rob, consisting of several meetings, and lots of email dialogue to ensure that all aspects of the design have been discussed and reviewed by all affected parties.
