Smart People with Good Ideas
Since 1993, H&K has applied common sense engineering principles to solving complex engineering problems. Often the simplest solution is the best solution.
We get the big picture
With over 20 years of project experience, we’ve seen a lot and done a lot.
Here are a few examples.
Happy clients say it all.
Holdrege & Kull (H&K) provided consulting engineering services to the City of Lincoln (City) that allowed the City to meet and exceed the requirements of the California Regional Water Quality Control Board’s (CRWQCB) Cleanup and Abatement Order (CAO) No. R5-2014-0703 for the Closed Lincoln Landfill. H&K’s value engineering approach to this complicated project saved the City approximately $12,000,000 that was estimated for a clean closure of the site (i.e., complete removal and disposal at a Class I licensed landfill). Base on their outstanding performance on this project, the City will certainly invite H&K to propose on future City projects.
Thank you so much, with all the issues on this job at least I can depend on you. Thanks again!
I wanted to take the time to commend your staff for their efforts in the Bloomer Telecommunications Tower Project. Don Olsen’s support in soil sampling and preparation for the site was timely, well presented and thorough. It was through his work that we were made aware of the alternative foundation design we have come to know as micro pile or rock bolting. Changing from the mat design to micro piles saved Butte County at least $300,000 and a costly delay in the project schedule. H&K’s out of the box thinking is what the tax payers of California deserve.
Thank you for providing the proposed soil sampling and analysis matrix for the Red Bluff site. Everything appears to be in order. It is greatly appreciated how you provided the information…The provided information made for a quick and easy review. Thanks!
Our sincere thanks and appreciation for the efforts that your organization has provided Butte College. The timeliness, flexibility and professionalism your team has shown us are very positive and exemplify a collaborative approach to public works projects that is a critical part of our successes.
H&K’s digital daily field reports are well laid out. I have never seen field reports so easy to read.
Holdrege and Kull’s shoring plan for the New Bay Bridge W2 foundation excavations came through with flying colors despite two earthquakes and a dozen and a half explosive blasts.
I want to extend a belated thank you to you and your staff for your assistance with the emergency at the Cascade Shores waste water treatment plant last month. Your professional expertise and your willingness to work under difficult and unstable conditions were critical to the effectiveness of the response. Please accept the County’s and my personal thanks to your prompt and effective response to the emergency.
On a side note, everyone on our end is very impressed with the work that Raquel has been doing out there. I’ve gotten compliments from FERC and DSOD on her ability to answer their questions and all of their inspections have gone smoothly. She has absolutely been the right fit for this job.
I wanted to take a moment and extend to you and your staff our sincere thanks and appreciation for the efforts that your organization has provided Butte College on the most recent projects including the Walkway/Bus Terminal, Campus Center Renovation and Solar Phase 3 Projects. The timeliness, flexibility and professionalism your team has shown us are very positive and exemplify a collaborative approach to public works projects that is a critical part of our successes.
The event this year was our most successful ever and served more than 110 girls, plus their parents. I’m glad you decided to join us this year. By all accounts, the response to your presentation on a career as a geologist was very good. Every girl who evaluated your career session said you clearly explained what your profession entailed and they felt they understood the kind of training needed to do your job. You were able to articulate what you liked about your work and your enthusiasm for “rocks.”
I had the pleasure to work with Brenda Pelton from H&K during the 2011 construction season while she was serving as a consultant to Caltrans’ I-5 project. Her dedication to the task at hand is outstanding. She is very knowledgeable about test methods and the way construction projects are supposed to run. What she is unfamiliar about, she is eager to learn and understand. I’ve never heard anything negative about her from any Caltrans personal or consultants, only positive. She is a true asset. I look forward to working with her next season.
