We have six new members on our team roster! They are Suyar Akturan, Darin Strege, Steve Beukelman, Kirk Vodopals, Rygg Larsen, and Mike Malone. Suyar Akturan is our new CAD technician, who has recently moved to Klamath Falls from Austin, Texas. He grew up in Turkey, enjoys the outdoors, and is building his own house. Darin Strege is a licensed civil engineer who will also be part of our construction management team. As subcontractors to a prime consultant, Darin and other SHN staff worked closely together on a large powerplant decommissioning project, so we already have a great working relationship. Steve Beukelman is a chemical engineer with expertise in water treatment systems, water quality, and WDR permit compliance; he and his family moved from the Bay Area to enjoy the North State rural lifestyle. Kirk Vodopals has 15 years of experience in natural resource management and restoration, gained during employment in the forest products industry. Having passed the FE exam, Kirk plans to take the PE exam as soon as he can. Rygg Larsen is a long-time resident of Willits and comes to us from the County of Mendocino Department of Transportation. Rygg will be working in our materials lab, out in the field with our survey crews, and in front of screens expanding his CAD skills. Mike Malone is our Eureka office summer intern, who is studying engineering at Humboldt State University. Mike is working part-time until finals are over, and then full-time during the summer, which will allow him to see a wide variety of municipal, site development, and environmental engineering projects.
Welcome back to another nose-to-the-grindstone semester/quarter! We salute your extreme work ethic, and your ability to keep focused on the goal of graduating and working to make the world a better place. Here are some things to think about when you’re waiting for that numeric modeling program to run.
A career is an individual’s journey of learning and work, and whether SHN is a quick side-trip or a long and rewarding segment depends on the similarities of our future paths. SHN’s path is one that values enhancing our communities and creating a rewarding environment for employees and shareholders. We value team work, life-long learning, and family, health and work balance.
SHN geologists investigated a known fault system to determine potential seismic hazards to the dam. Trenchscan technology was used to record images that were later digitally merged to create a single image of the entire trenched area.
Beginning in 2012, SHN’s Biologist of Record managed a crew of 30 biologists that identified nesting locations of birds, prepared and implemented salmonid relocation and dewatering plans, conducted Northern Spotted Owl surveys, and prepared daily and quarterly reports documenting the interactions between construction activities and regulated biological resources.
Since 1995, SHN has performed environmental site investigation, hydrology studies, surveys, permitting, remediation design, and infrastructure evaluation and repair designs at 46 sites for CAL FIRE, the California state agency for real estate services (DGS-RESD), and the Division of the State Architect.
With Ann Baker Landscape Architecture, SHN assisted in the design of the Museum’s new outdoor nature education facility, incorporating stormwater wetlands and bioretention areas, and encouraging groundwater recharge with infiltration trenches and permeable pavements.
“The Peninsula Light Company and its members will continue to benefit from your efforts long into the future due to the project’s sustainability.
