MANNING AVENUE BRIDGE REHABILITATION & RECONSTRUCTION
Quincy provided construction management and construction engineering/inspection services for the three-span, cast-in-place, pre-stressed, concrete box girder with a parabolic superstructure. Construction sequencing was complicated by orchestrating utility relocations during construction. Utilities included a Southern California gas transmission main, a City sewer force main, a City water main, and multiple communication ducts that needed to be relocated into the new structure. The operations required close coordination with each utility company and the contractor’s operations.
RAIL ROAD FLAT ROAD BRIDGE REPLACEMENT
CALAVERAS COUNTY, CA
Quincy is currently providing Construction Management and Construction Engineering/Inspection services for this bridge replacement project. The new bridge, constructed in two-stages, is a single-span, precast, pre-stressed, slab bridge supported by reinforced concrete abutments founded on CIDH piles. Due to lack of suitable detour routes, the road is being maintained open with at least one lane accessible at all times. This was accomplished by using a portion of the existing structure while the first stage of the new bridge is being built. The project is scheduled to be completed in Summer 2018.
FOLSOM ZOO SEWER LINE REHABILITATION
Quincy is providing design, construction management, and inspection for the replacement of an existing sewer main that has reached the end of its serviceable life. The rehabilitation project was needed to reduce inflow and infiltration, minimize annual maintenance costs, and reduce the risk of sewer overflows. Many of the exiting sewer lines were located under structures within the zoo, thus creating additional challenges during construction. The project also included converting two bear ponds to recirculating ponds and realigning the service laterals to avoid a jurisdictional wetland and prevent sewer surges and overflows. Unique construction coordination services included minimizing disruption to the animals and special accommodations for visitors to keep the zoo open during construction.
CHALLENGES & SOLUTIONS
In the construction phase, things never seem to go as planned. But it doesn't have to be that way. We've seen a lot over the years and have found key ways to solve some of these common problems.
We understand tight schedules and have worked on countless projects with limits due to weather, environment and even materials. But we always work tirelessly to get the project done well and done right.
Communication is the cornerstone to every project. Our Construction Management team works side-by-side with project personnel, communicating with the contractor and client to identify potential issues before they become problems.
The project comes first. That's why we place such strong emphasis on working together as a team, rather than as separate entities. This makes construction straight forward, so it can be completed with minimal issues. Plus we can better understand and anticipate potential problems before they arise.

SUCCESSFUL CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS ARE MORE GENERALLY DEFINED BY THE PEOPLE THAT ARE THERE WHEN THE CONSTRUCTION HAPPENS AND THE ABILITY TO WORK AND COMMUNICATE WITH THE RESIDENTS. [YOUR RESIDENT ENGINEER] IS UNIQUELY SUITED TO UNDERSTAND THIS BETTER THAN MOST, AND I APPRECIATE HIM BEING THERE FOR ME ON THE BUTTE MEADOWS ROAD PROJECT."
