The Y&H team has enjoyed working with the Kern County staff on the newest Station for the Kern County Fire Department. The County held a Ribbon Cutting ceremony this month to celebrate. More information on the station can be seen on the Tulare County News site. Y&H provided general civil engineering, mountain hydrology calculations, storm runoff hydraulics, bridge culverts and ADA compliance services. Due to potentially excessive storm runoff from the terrain south of the station, two major storm channels were designed on-site. The western channel naturally separates the station, and fire trucks, from the main public road. The design solution chosen to solve the issues were three individual CONTECH Arch culverts. The culverts allowed for the designed storm capacity, while providing access for the large trucks and keeping a low profile over the channel.
Grundfos, a local pump manufacture, client of Y&H, and neighbor is in the news once again for their efforts to save water. Due to the reduced snowpack this year, the recent project by Grundfos at their plant on Shields to recycle irrigation water and reduce the amount of water they consume onsite. Y&H helped Grundfos in 2012 design retention ponds and piping to collect Fresno irrigation District water to use for their landscaping. The site landscaping was designed by the same firm that designed the Y&H property, Patrick Boyd with Designlab 252.
Yamabe & Horn is proud to sponsor Buchanan Babe Ruth. Trenton, son of our Sanger City Engineer, Josh Rogers, looks great in the red uniform and is ready to get some home runs.
Site grading has begun on a new solar project for a South Valley agri-business. Y&H helped the solar company with the site surveying, grading design, SWPPP and construction staking.
