Garver Mitigates Emergency Rock Slide

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) recently utilized Garver’s Construction Services Team for an emergency project on Interstate 35 south of Davis. In response to what could have developed into a potentially dangerous scenario for drivers in Oklahoma, Garver recently provided mitigation of a rock slide area along the freeway.

“I-35 sees a lot of traffic, and due to the instability of the remaining rock, the north-bound lanes had to be shut down,” said Project Manager Shannon McGarrah. “If that rock would’ve come down on its own timeline, it could’ve seriously hurt someone. Fortunately crews were deployed and their efforts alleviated that danger in a way that will keep drivers safe.”

Clement Passes Structural Engineering Exam

Garver congratulates Project Engineer David Clement, PE, who serves on Garver’s Facilities Design Team in the North Little Rock, Arkansas office, for passing the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) 16-hour Structural Engineering Exam. 

Typical pass rates for the SE exam are well below 50 percent, so passing allows an engineer to distinguish himself as having an uncommon level of expertise in the field of structural engineering.

“David passing this exam is further proof clients should be confident Garver will provide excellent solutions to structural engineering problems,” said Director of Facilities Design John Watkins.

Congratulations, David.
