OPC Recognized by ACEC – 2021 CA Engineering Excellence Awards

2021-04-16T08:44:43-07:00February 4th, 2021|News|

On February 4th, OPC was recognized by the American Council of Engineering Companies’ 2021 California Engineering Excellence Awards for our part in one of the projects receiving honors this year.

The ACEC California judging panel gave a Merit Award to the Date Palm Drive Bridge over Whitewater River Project team in Cathedral City. The design team was led by Michael Baker International, with OPC legend John Cutler leading the team that provided right of way appraisal, acquisition, and utility coordination on the project. The bridge improvement project was needed as the Whitewater Wash has been subject to frequent flooding while the Coachella Valley continues to grow.

With our major Riverside office, OPC has a long track record of right of way project delivery in the Coachella Valley. We are proud of our work with the Michael Baker team and the City of Cathedral City on this project.

OPC’s Taurean Gordon and Mike Parker attended ACEC’s ceremony, which was hosted virtually this year. The event benefits the ACEC California Scholarship Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.  See the 2021 EEA Winners.

OPC Recognized for IRWA Chapter 1 Seminar and Newsletter Contributions

2020-10-16T08:36:27-07:00September 24th, 2020|News|

OPC was honored for our work over the past year on the International Right of Way Association’s Chapter 1 newsletter and fall seminar. IRWA Chapter 1 serves Los Angeles County and Orange County, covering our Long Beach headquarters. These certificates are now proudly displayed in our Long Beach office. OPC would like to express our heartfelt appreciation to Chapter 1 and to the entire IRWA team for the great work that they do. We have been able to build a 40-year foundation specializing in right of way in part because of IRWA’s advocacy for our industry and cultivation of a fulfilling community of practice.
