Comprehensive Management

Our experts identify and resolve challenges before they impact your project costs and scheduling

West Yost’s Construction Management Team specializes in managing our client’s construction process once the construction project is awarded to a general contractor.  Our construction managers and inspectors collaborate and coordinate between the contractor and our client. Our focus is managing the scope, quality, schedule, cost, and safety components of the construction contract to complete fulfillment and client satisfaction.

We manage risks to protect our client’s ratepayers from incurring additional costs due to the project delays and/or legal disputes, especially due to design ambiguities or contract interpretation issues.

Our experience allows us to identify and solve challenging problems, working with the designer to improve the constructibility. We earn your trust and deliver the project as you intended it to be with minimal impacts and headaches. We specialize in construction administration and inspection of water and wastewater projects including:

  • Wastewater Treatment Plants
  • Trunk Sewers and Sewer Rehabilitation
  • Potable Water and Recycled Water Pipelines
  • Water Storage Tanks – Concrete and Steel
  • Pump Stations
  • Wetlands Restoration

Headworks, Dryden Box & Influent Flume Improvements

City of Modesto

This project at the City of Modesto’s Primary Sutter Avenue Wastewater Treatment Plant recently completed construction. The project involved constructing numerous 30-foot deep reinforced concrete junction structures tying into existing structures and pipelines, installation of several hundred feet of 60-inch diameter reinforced fiberglass mortar polymer pipelines, replacing all five bar screens, replacing all three bar screens on Pumping Plant No. 3,  replacing screening washers/compactors, grit pumps, odor control improvements, and major electrical improvements that include replacing MCCs and upgrading control systems with PLCs to improve remote automated control via the existing SCADA system.

EchoWater Project – Nitrifying Sidestream Treatment

Sacramento Regional County Sanitation District

This project involved the construction of a triple-train sequential batch reactor (SBR) process to pretreat highly concentrated wastewater returned to the main treatment plant by nitrifying the wastewater stream using high speed turbo air blowers. Each basin independently treated the wastewater by blowing air through fine bubble diffusers which nitrifies the wastewater making it easier for the main BNR process to reduce ammonia content in the secondary effluent.
