TRC Chosen to Provide Array of Integrated Services on Midship Pipeline Project

LOWELL, Mass. – TRC Companies Inc., a leading provider of end-to-end engineering, consulting and construction management solutions fueled by innovative technology, has been awarded a pair of contracts from Midship Pipeline Company LLC for the Midship Pipeline Project in Oklahoma – one for environmental consulting, engineering and field services and the other a stem-to-stern Engineer, Procure and Construct (EPC) contract for three compressor stations.

“We are excited to partner with the Midship Pipeline Company on this important project,” said Ed Wiegele, president of TRC’s Oil and Gas Sector. “By providing integrated services throughout the lifecycle of the project, we will streamline the work and help minimize risk.”

The Midship Pipeline Project consists of a new 36-inch mainline natural gas pipeline that stretches 199 miles through Oklahoma. TRC will perform engineering, mapping, civil surveying, environmental and right-of-way services on that portion of the project. Three mainline compressor stations, two lateral pipelines, a booster station and associated facilities will also be built.

The project, which recently received its Certificate Order from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, is scheduled to be put into service next year.

“Midship is a great project and we’re pleased to have TRC working on it,” said Jim Privett, Vice President of Project Management for Midship Pipeline Company. “This pipeline will deliver an enormous economic boost to the state of Oklahoma – during the design and construction phase and when it’s in operation, providing a valuable natural resource with a safe, efficient and economical path to the marketplace.”

Sunland Construction will serve as construction contractor on the compressor stations.

“Sunland is looking forward to teaming up with TRC on this important project,” said Craig Meier, President of Major Projects for Sunland.

Once completed, the Midship Pipeline will have the capacity to bring 1.44 million dekatherms of natural gas per day from the Anadarko Basin in Oklahoma to the growing Gulf Coast and Southeast markets.

TRC’s Michael Murphy Wins Prestigious Award for Lifetime Achievement in Hydropower Industry

LOWELL, Mass. – TRC, a leader in engineering, consulting and construction-management services, is pleased to announce Michael Murphy has been named the 2018 recipient of the National Hydropower Association’s Dr. Kenneth Henwood Award for lifetime achievement and dedication to the hydropower industry.

Murphy found out he was the winner of the Henwood Award just two weeks after retiring from TRC in January.

“It was a total surprise, but I was deeply honored to be chosen by my peers across the country for this award,” he said. “I could not have imagined a better way to cap my career.”

Murphy spent more than 30 years in the power industry, starting out as an attorney at Green Mountain Power in Vermont. From there he moved on to Central Maine Power before starting his own national consulting firm, EPRO, in 1999. Murphy joined TRC after it acquired EPRO in 2003, ultimately serving as vice president and national market director for hydropower.

“I have been blessed to be surrounded by the finest hydropower staff in the country,” he said. “The TRC hydropower team is not only the most talented in the industry, but they made it a pleasure to come to work every day.”

Murphy worked in various roles throughout his career, which gave him a strong understanding of the different facets of the industry. Over the years he became one of the leading proponents of hydropower, speaking before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and testifying before Congress.

“Mike made an enormous impact on the industry over the course of his career,” said Jim Mayer, president of TRC’s Power Sector. “His vision and depth of knowledge was vital in helping TRC establish itself as a leading consultant on hydropower projects of all sizes.”

Former Los Angeles Oil Tank Transformed into Massive Surfing Mural

TRC installs colorful, three-story tall work from famed artist John Van Hamersveld

LOS ANGELES – El Segundo residents now have a striking new addition to their skyline – a giant mural of surf-inspired psychedelia thanks to iconic California artist John Van Hamersveld, city officials, the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power and TRC.

The mural – 32 feet high and 510 feet long – surrounds a hulking LADWP storage tank on Grand Avenue that’s no longer in use. TRC, a leader in engineering, environmental consulting and construction-management services, commissioned Van Hamersveld to wrap the tank with his colorful artwork at the behest of the city of El Segundo.

“This project came to life after an El Segundo resident asked me if something could be done to improve the appearance of the tank,” said Mayor Drew Boyles. “This is a shining example of a resident voicing a concern and the city council working with stakeholders to develop a truly beautiful outcome. We would like to thank everyone involved for partnering on this ambitious project.”

The mural was installed in 51 panels that encircle the top of the tank, which once held 7.3 million gallons of oil from the refinery next door.  

Van Hamersveld, a 1959 graduate of El Segundo High School, is a famous pop artist who has done numerous murals around California – though none as large as this. But he’s best known for the poster he created for the seminal 1966 surf film “The Endless Summer” and for his work in the rock music world – an iconic Jimi Hendrix concert poster and album cover designs for the Beatles’ “Magical Mystery Tour,” the Rolling Stones’ “Exile on Main St.” and the Grateful Dead’s “Skeletons From the Closet,” to name a few.

The Grand Avenue mural is a pastiche of Van Hamersveld’s earlier work. It features vibrant, Day-Glo waves and much of the classic iconography he’s created over the years, so it serves as something of a career retrospective for the 76–year-old artist.

“Yeah, that’s kind of the way I faced it,” he said. “The wave is the eternal world that goes through time and below that are these symbols that are my work over time, so putting that together is sort of an interesting collage.”

Van Hamersveld said he’s excited about the project’s gargantuan size – and the fact that thousands of air passengers flying out of Los Angeles International Airport will be able to see it while taking off each day.

“The most interesting part of it is at various altitudes in El Segundo you can see it on the horizon, and in silhouette it’s almost 250 feet wide,” he said. “So it’s really an amazing gallery to be able to put that out.”

The installment was funded by the LADWP.

“As with any LADWP initiative, it is important to us to be a good neighbor to those around our projects,” said Marty Adams, LADWP Chief Operating Officer. “We are pleased to have partnered with the City of El Segundo to enhance the community by featuring John Van Hamersveld’s artwork on our tank. For as long as we have a use for this tank here, this will be home for this remarkable piece of art.”

TRC oversaw the prep work on the tank and the installation of the mural, which was printed on a mesh-like fabric so the wind can pass through it.

“This project is a lot more colorful than what we usually work on – literally and figuratively,” said Mark Robbins, acting president of TRC’s Environmental Sector. “We’re excited to have played a part in delivering something bold and unique that thousands of people will be able to appreciate on a daily basis.”

TRC Climbs to No. 19 in ENR’s Annual List of Top Design Firms

LOWELL, Mass. – TRC Companies Inc., a leader in engineering, environmental consulting and construction management services, is ranked No. 19 in Engineering News-Record’s annual list of the Top 500 design firms in the United States, cracking the Top 20 for the first time.    

“Moving up four spots from last year is recognition of the hard work we’ve done to deliver on our aggressive growth strategy and shows the confidence that’s been placed in us by our robust, varied client base,” said TRC CEO Chris Vincze. “This is another strong step forward for TRC and reflects our employees’ steadfast focus on understanding the goals of our clients and embracing them as our own.”

ENR’s 2018 rankings are based on revenue from design services performed in 2017.  

In addition to moving up in the overall rankings, TRC also climbed in the Power (No. 7) and Hazardous Waste (No. 8) sectors. The company also entered the Top 20 in the Industrial Process/Petroleum sector for the first time (No. 18) following the full integration of Willbros Professional Services, which it acquired in late 2015.

TRC went private in 2017 after being purchased by New Mountain Capital last June.  

“This continued success reflects our belief that TRC is well on its way to becoming the most valuable consulting, engineering and construction management firm in the industry,” said Lars Johansson, managing director of New Mountain Capital. 

TRC was also ranked No. 6 on ENR’s list of the Top 100 Pure Designers, up one spot from 2017.

Santa Monica Footbridge Project Wins ASCE Award

Idaho Ave. Pedestrian Overcrossing named California’s best bikeway/trail project

LOWELL, Mass. – TRC Companies Inc., a leader in engineering, environmental consulting and construction-management services, is pleased to announce the Idaho Avenue Pedestrian Overcrossing Bridge in Santa Monica has been named California’s Outstanding Bikeway and Trails Project for 2017.

The award for the spiraling footbridge, which takes people from the cliffs of Palisades Park down to the Pacific Ocean, was given by the American Society of Civil Engineers. TRC served as construction manager on the project.

“The Idaho Avenue Overcrossing is a striking new addition to Santa Monica’s beautiful waterfront, and TRC is thrilled to share in this prestigious award,” said Doug Massih, president of TRC’s infrastructure sector.


The new overcrossing replaced the original 1957 structure, which was starting to deteriorate. The project included the construction of a 1.2 mile bike path and jogging trail.

The work was part of a larger $20 million project in which TRC assisted the City of Santa Monica in rebuilding the California Incline Bridge, which connects Santa Monica to the Pacific Coast Highway. The original 750-foot bridge was constructed in the 1930s and needed to be brought up to current seismic standards.

For motorists driving up the California Incline, the V-shaped pier of the overcrossing frames stunning views of the Santa Monica Pier, the beach and the Pacific Ocean.

The Idaho Avenue Pedestrian Overcrossing has received numerous awards, including a 2018 Engineering Excellence Honor Award from the American Council on Engineering Companies of California and the 2017 International Bridge Conference Arthur G. Hayden Medal.

TRC Recognized for Removing Lead Contamination from Mill River in Fairfield, Connecticut

Also wins Business Achievement Award from Environmental Business Journal

LOWELL, Mass. – TRC Companies Inc., a leader in engineering, environmental consulting and construction-management services, has been awarded a pair of awards from the Environmental Business Journal – one for business achievement and the other for an innovative remediation project to remove lead sediment from the Mill River in Fairfield, Conn.

“Our mandate at TRC is to make the earth a better place to live, and we’re thrilled to be recognized by EBJ for doing just that,” said John Cowdery, president of TRC’s Environmental Sector.  

EBJ, a business research publication that provides high value strategic business intelligence to the environmental industry, is honoring companies for revenue growth, acquisitions, innovative project designs, technology applications, new practice areas, social contributions and industry leadership in 2017.

“In what is widely regarded as a stable market, a number of companies exceeded the norms of low single-digit growth with double-digit growth or ambitious ventures into new practice areas or technology development,” said Grant Ferrier, president of Environmental Business International Inc., publisher of EBJ.

TRC received a Business Achievement Award for negotiating its sale to New Mountain Capital for $550 million, a 47 percent premium on TRC’s stock price prior to the offer. EBJ said the deal “allows the company and its management the independence and access to capital to continue its ambitious growth and acquisition plans.”

TRC was also recognized for its sustainable resolution of legacy lead impacts to the Mill River in Fairfield on behalf of Exide Group/Vale Americas. The uniquely structured project involved dredging contaminated sediment along 2.5 miles of the river, performing passive dewatering of more than 30,000 tons of sediment and treating of more than 100 million gallons of wastewater within an aggressive two-year timetable.

The Mill River meanders 16.3 miles through Fairfield before emptying into Long Island Sound.   

“[Connecticut] and the residents of the community appreciated the creativity, dedication, thorough and professional conduct, and faithful execution of the project by Exide and TRC as they focused on the remedial goals and a route to reach them,” said Patrick F. Bowe of the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection.

TRC shared the award for the Mill River cleanup with Shipman & Goodman, LLP, a Hartford law firm involved in the project.

The 2017 EBJ awards will be presented at a special ceremony at the Environmental Industry Summit XVI in San Diego on March 21. The Environmental Industry Summit is an annual three-day executive retreat hosted by EBI, Inc. and 2020 Environmental Group.
