Tonight is the Golden State Warriors season opener at the Chase Center. Malcolm was hard at work during the construction of this project, installing 300 Drilled Shafts and 1,000 CFA Mega Piles within only 3 months. We have also installed the foundations…
The new fire boat station at the Port of Long Beach gets some help from our Jet Grouting guys. They are jetting 6ft columns up to 80ft deep right through 35,000 psi rip-rap boulders to mitigate liquefaction and lateral spreading!
We reached the final excavation depth of 72 feet at our Oceanwide Project in San Francisco. Well done OWC team!!

Flagler Beach, Florida
State Road A1A (SR A1A) is a north-south Florida State Road that runs along the Atlantic Ocean, from Key West at the southern tip of Florida, to Fernandina Beach, just south of Georgia on Amelia Island. It is the main road through most oceanfront towns. This is a major strip of road that runs the entire length of Florida along the Atlantic Ocean, thus it has great importance to the surrounding areas.
In October 2016, a category 4 hurricane, dubbed Matthew, made his appearance with torrential rain, massive storm surges, and winds up to 145 MPH. Matthew hit Haiti, moved past Cuba and the Bahamas, and then destroyed the coastal areas of Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina. Among the cities impacted by Hurricane Matthew was Flagler Beach, Florida.
Flagler Beach is a seaside community along this coastline that was majorly impacted. There are 6 miles of open beaches, many wonderful fishing spots, oceanfront dining, and endless recreational activities- a true beach town. The coastline took a hard hit.
Silicon Valley, California
This Airport access shaft project is 1 of 3 for the Silicon Valley Clean Water’s RESCU program (Regional Environmental Sewer Conveyance Upgrade). The project is the first tunneling progressive design-build of this nature in the US. Malcolm has been brought on as a specialist contractor in constructing the walls for the TBM launch shaft. The job will allow 3 times more water flow than the original 45 year old pipeline. The tunnel is 3.3 miles in length, which is the equivalent to almost 59 football fields.
