Weiss Awarded Contracts with City and County of San Francisco, Department of Energy
June 2010

Weiss Associates, a prominent environmental engineering and science firm headquartered in Emeryville, CA, was recently awarded two significant contracts and is in negotiation on a third. These strategic wins continue to establish Weiss’s portfolio of environmental consulting work for both municipal and federal government clients.

The San Francisco Department of Public Works (SFDPW) recently awarded Weiss a 5-year As-Needed Environmental Consulting and Planning Services contract. The Weiss Team, led by Scott Bourne, P.E., consists of multiple specialty subcontractors. Weiss will provide environmental assessments and planning studies to support SFDPW’s capital improvement projects.

The Port of San Francisco is in negotiations to award Weiss a 3-year contract for As-Needed Environmental Consulting and Related Professional Services. If negotiations are successfully completed, the resulting contract will represent a continuation of service as Weiss skillfully managed a previous as-needed contract with the Port from 2007 to 2010.

“These recent contract wins enable Weiss to assist the City and County of San Francisco with important projects that will impact the quality of the environment and the quality of life in the City,” said Bourne. “We are excited to continue working for the City. Their project managers are competent professionals managing interesting and challenging environmental projects that reinforce and build Weiss’s base of knowledge and experience.”

Weiss has a long-established relationship with the Department of Energy (DOE) and works at numerous DOE sites including Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and the Laboratory for Energy-related Health Research at the University of California, Davis. Weiss was recently awarded a contract by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) to conduct a Reconnaissance Level Characterization of buildings in the Old Town area at LBNL. Buildings in Old Town may contain low level radioactive contamination and hazardous materials such as mercury, lead, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and asbestos. Weiss was chosen to support LBNL based on our expertise in decontamination and demolition projects that include characterizing radiological contamination.
