Success Story

"Frank was one of the Engineers assigned to me at the beginning of the work (Earthquake Rehabilitation, Sylmar, California). He was very knowledgeable in the work that needed to be done and willing to go to any length to get the job done. He often worked day and night to get the job done right and get the contractors paid for their work performed. He prepared and managed several large size change orders while performing his regular duties, all with only a car, a desk, a radio and without a cell phone or laptop computer. Estimates were issued bi-weekly, The projects were 24 hour, calendar day projects for nearly a year. Frank's "around the clock" dedication, motivation and performance was absolutely crucial in allowing the state of California to complete several major reconstruction projects early and restore a major California freeway system severely damaged by a large magnitude, Los Angeles area earthquake. I have worked with Frank several times since we first worked together on the Earthquake reconstruction projects and he displays the same intense amount of professionalism and dedication to his projects as he did then. He is an asset to anyone's team or project." Jay Steele, Civil Engineer, Caltrans (Retired)
