City of Richmond
My introduction to NCE’s environmental services was back in 2010, when a City of Richmond culvert conveying San Pablo Creek, collapsed and swallowed a hillside and part of a City roadway…NCE pulled out all the stops…demonstrated understanding of the regional, state, and federal processes, and put together a successful strategy to ensure seamless procurement of requisite environmental regulatory permits. Over the course of the Via Verdi culvert project, NCE staff also demonstrated mastery of applicable regulations, Best Management Practices, and cutting edge technologies. NCE provided environmental services for all aspects of the project which lasted three years and included four construction contracts.
Because of the high quality services on the Via Verdi culvert project, NCE established itself as the go-to professional services firm for environmental related work.

Town of Los Gatos
NCE began working with the Town in 2010 to develop conceptual design options for ten residential concrete streets in the Almond Grove district of the Town. These streets had been in place for almost 100 years. NCE provided several treatment options including replacement in concrete, replacement in asphalts, and an asphalt overlay solution.
Following the conceptual design, NCE was awarded the contract to complete the plans and specifications for three of the streets in concrete…the Town requested design changes based on community feedback at various critical junction points. NCE staff always handled these changes professionally and effectively, working expeditiously to include these changes and keep expected schedules. NCE staff worked to address all of the Towns concerns during the course of the design process and was extremely professional in their dealings with the Town staff and residents…I would highly recommend NCE.
Sierra Nevada Construction, Inc.
I have been working with NCE’s SWPPP [Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan] implementation team for the last 3 years on the Edgewood Lodge Project in Stateline NV. NCE’s team is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to the specifications and standards of all of the agencies with jurisdiction in the Lake Tahoe Basin. Above this, they are also very good at analyzing each individual situation and coming up with a logical solution to ensure the use of the most applicable BMP [Best Management Practice]. I have enjoyed working with NCE as they have always remained professional and it is clear they are continually working on building a great reputation and even stronger relationships with everyone they work with.
