CP&Y is Resilient!

Updated: Sep 14, 2020

CP&Y provides essential critical infrastructure with services involving a wide variety of disciplines, so we are proud to be adapting our methods for each practice and service to address the challenges of COVID-19. As always, CP&Y is fully committed to our clients and business operations as well as the health and safety of our employee-owners.

Continue reading below to see just a few examples of how CP&Y continues to be Partners for a Better Quality of Life:

Field Equipment Depot

Survey Technician, Troy Day, is volunteering his garage as a temporary home base for Waco field crews to quickly and easily pick up and drop off equipment. This change minimizes the need for crowds and allows crews to practice social distancing.

Essential at Night

Because providing critical infrastructure sometimes means working into the night to stay on schedule, CP&Y’s Construction Engineering Inspection (CEI) team continues a slab pour for SH 130 near Austin. Keeping projects on schedule will be invaluable for communities once the COVID-19 response subsides.

Critical Work Continues

CP&Y continues the underdrain excavation for Retaining Wall 84 on the Borgfeld Drive side of US 281 near San Antonio. Completing necessary infrastructure projects improves everyone’s safety! Transportation, water, and wastewater infrastructure provides lifesaving emergency and sanitation services to the public.

Home on the Road

Aaron McCurlie, CEI Inspector, is “home on the road” in Palo Pinto County to keep projects moving – literally! Aaron's essential work is mobile, which allows him and other CEI professionals to practice social distancing while continuing to provide invaluable quality control for projects under construction.

Building Up Infrastructure

Construction is still ongoing for the straddle bent bridges of the IH 35/US 183 Direct Interchange in the Austin area. CP&Y is always working to keep critical infrastructure on schedule!

Staying Home

Those of us not in the field are doing our part by working from home when possible. CP&Y is providing an unprecedented number of remote workstations to employee-owners capable of working from home. Our Partners' safety comes first! (Thanks to Victoria Oborny, Transportation EIT, for providing a picture of her cute assistant, Slaytor.)
