History

At Alta Vista Solutions, we solve problems. Since 2008, when Patrick Lowry and Dr. Mazen Wahbeh founded it as an engineering firm, our team has worked diligently to improve public infrastructure by embracing our clients’ challenges as our own. We believe that collaboration, and a commitment to always doing right, are essential for the successful delivery of large-scale and complex construction projects. This approach has led us to work on some of the biggest infrastructure projects in the industry. We started with assuring quality at various sources of supply worldwide for the new East Span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge and have continued to work globally to solve challenges for projects that make our communities better.

In 2010, we were selected as the prime consultant responsible for providing quality assurance services for hundreds of transportation infrastructure projects in Northern California, and were later chosen to provide these services across the state of California. We have worked for clients including the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), California High-Speed Rail Authority (CHSRA), Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LA Metro), Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), the City of Sacramento, Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD), Contra Costa County Transportation Authority (CCTA), Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA), New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), New York State Thruway Authority, Federal Highway Administration’s Central Federal Lands Highway Division (CFL) and other agencies throughout the country.

Our vision is to continually nurture our personal and professional growth to deliver the best consultant services ever experienced. Our mission is to “Do Right” by embracing our clients’ challenges as our own, offering solutions that move projects forward, pursuing quality through meticulous attention to detail, providing a safe and healthy environment for our team, giving back to our communities, and growing our business responsibly.
