Westside Redi-Mix and Rock, Inc. provides concrete, rock aggregate (gravel), and asphalt services to the surrounding community. Contractors, commercial & industrial land owners, and residential landowners require these services for development and maintenance activities. A significant financial burden can be passed down to the customer due to the cost of transporting these materials a relatively far distance from cities such as Hillsboro, Wilsonville, or even further away. A local provider is beneficial to the surrounding community because it can significantly reduce cost to the consumer due to the reduction in transportation costs.
Westside Redi-Mix and Rock, Inc. came to Stuntzner Engineering and Forestry, LLC. at the end of 2014 and requested
services to partition the parcel then develop the parcel to the City of Forest Grove’s and Clean Water Services’ standards. Stuntzner Engineering and Forestry, LLC. provided all the land-use planning, surveying, and engineering services necessary to successfully complete the project. The new location is entirely complete except for some landscaping work which is expected to be finished by the end of May, 2016. Westside Redi-Mix and Rock, Inc. is fully operational and providing services to customers.
Below is a statement from the owner of Westside Redi-Mix and Rock, John Malnerich:
“My name is John Malnerich and I am the owner of Westside Redi-Mix & Rock, Inc. I would like to inform other business owners about my experience if they may be starting a new business or relocating an old business.
When I first went to Stuntzner Engineering I was very pleased with how they sat down and listened to my plans to start a new business in the City of Forest Grove on vacant land that I did not own but was in the process of purchasing. I talked to Nick and Bill at Stuntzner Engineering and explained what I needed from them to design the property for my operations and to start the development process. The development of the site had several challenges including wetlands and right-of-way work. These guys jumped on this project like I was building a giant business. They never slowed down. They took care of all the studies for the property; they helped me meet the requirements of the City; they set up meetings with all the pertinent agencies… they just kept the ball rolling all the time.
My main contact was with Nick and Bill. We sat down and talked about drainage in and around the site which enabled them to design a storm drain conveyance and treatment system. The stormwater system met all Clean Water Services standards and was approved. After several meetings with the City and my surrounding neighbors, the Stuntzner team and I were able to design a plan that was approved by all who were involved.
Stuntzner Engineering helped me locate the right contractor and provided the plans and details so that Subcom Excavation and Utilities could get the project underway.
During this time, Nick was directly involved in inspecting the pipe work and grading and keeping this project moving. He would report to me on a regular schedule regarding the project progress. In short… taking care of every little bump as they came. Nick made this project very easy for me. If I wanted to change anything on the plans he would always tell me if I could or if what I wanted would result in some major issues. Nick was always telling me that if I wanted to change things it would cost me additional money. He was always worried about cost and I have never in my long career of construction ever had an engineer be concerned about my money! It was that way from the first day to the last of the project.
This project went excellently from the start until the very end.
We could not have finished this project under cost and in such a short time period without the entire staff at Stuntzner Engineering. Carol, in the office, always kept me updated on permit issues and billing questions. The survey crew was always ahead of schedule with staking. Bill was involved with resolving major questions before they became problems. And Nick was excellent, so excellent, in details and design.
