Enginuity Consulting wins CALTRANS Outstanding Performance Award.
- San Diego, CA (1888PressRelease) May 26, 2012 - The Caltrans Calmentor Program recently recognized San Diego-based civil engineering firm Enginuity Consulting with an Outstanding Performance Award. Initiated by Governor Schwarzenegger in 2006, the Program is designed to encourage and support small businesses through voluntary partnerships with established firms.
The Caltrans Calmentor Program's intent is to promote small and emerging architectural and engineering firms, like Enginuity Consulting, by pairing them with larger, more established mentoring firms. The idea is to develop opportunities for Protégés and Mentors to participate in public transportation, as well as other development projects in the San Diego region.
The San Diego Chapter of the Calmentor program is made possible by a partnership with Caltrans, SANDAG, the American Council of Engineering Companies - California (ACEC-CA), the City of San Diego, San Diego Contracting Opportunities Center - Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC), and the Caltrans District 11 Small Business Council.
ENGINUITY PAIRED WITH GLOBAL FIRM, URS CORPRATION
The 2010-2011 Mentor-Protégé Program launched in March of 2010, and Enginuity Consulting was paired with URS Corporation, a fully integrated global engineering, construction and technical services organization.
Enginuity Consulting's Principal, Zubin Patrawala met on a monthly basis with URS's Jim Bolz, P.E, to discuss a range of topics from engineering specifications, project selection and lead sharing, to project management methods, public speaking tips, cutting edge software and the best places for lunch in San Diego.
With the help of programs like the Calmentor Program, emerging small businesses like Enginuity Consulting have the opportunity to receive mentorship, guidance and exposure from global firms like URS.
