New Office Location and Staff for LACO's Ukiah Office

(Ukiah, CA – October 28, 2011) – After three years serving clients in Mendocino and Lake Counties, LACO’s Ukiah operation outgrew their small office on Perkins/State Street. According to Christopher Watt, CEG, LACO’s Geo-Environmental Services Director, “The new office, located at 311 South Main Street, provides for our continued growth and supports space for us to operate a soils/aggregate testing laboratory.”

LACO’s new office will serve the Ukiah area community by providing a valuable resource for professional services related to geo-environmental, development, and infrastructure projects in the Ukiah area. The new office will also enable LACO to provide expanded Materials Testing and Special Inspection services for construction projects in the area, minimize project costs, and reduce project schedules.

In addition to their new office location, LACO has hired two new employees to join their Ukiah team, Tony Shaw and Jason Wise, EIT.

Tony Shaw has joined the team as LACO’s Ukiah Community Development Manager.
