Alta Vista Solutions Wins $25M Caltrans Statewide Materials Testing Contract

Richmond, Calif. May 18, 2016 — The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has awarded Alta Vista Solutions (Alta Vista), a three-year, $25 million contract to provide materials sampling, testing and inspection support services throughout the state. Alta Vista was the incumbent consultant, competing to continue providing services to the state, but approached the bid advertisement with the same scrappy and innovative energy the firm is known for.

“It is an honor to be Caltrans’ go-to choice for consultants when it comes to quality,” Alta Vista CEO, Mazen Wahbeh, reflected. “It validates our founding belief that a more collaborative approach to quality is necessary for owner agencies to be successful in the industry today.”

This announcement comes hot on the heels of Alta Vista launching a new corporate brand and announcing plans to grow and diversify in 2016. Alta Vista will support Caltrans by providing materials testing and plant inspection services for transportation construction projects throughout the state, ensuring the delivery of high-quality transportation infrastructure.

Alta Vista’s President, Patrick Lowry, stated, “We really enjoy supporting Caltrans’ Materials Engineering and Testing Services (METS) teams and working seamlessly to map value streams, eliminate waste, and flow integrated efforts through planned and streamlined processes.”
