Testimonials

 

City of Carlsbad:

“The City of Carlsbad Wastewater Division contracted with VanderHawk Consulting LLC.  Mat Huff  assisted us in some important sewer line and manhole maintenance and repair projects.  Mat displayed the utmost level of professionalism and responsiveness  to provide us the GIS mapping and database deliverables that we needed.  Our contract with VanderHawk ended on time and within budget and we couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome.  I wouldn’t hesitate to contract with Mat and his VanderHawk team again in the future.”

Utilities Manager


City of Rancho Cucamonga:

“The City of Rancho Cucamonga’s pavement management program was not moving forward and had become unmanageable, so we hired VanderHawk Consulting to convert our out-dated Cartegraph system to MicroPAVER.  Mat and his team reconstructed our road network database from the ground-up and created logical inspection samples that will be used for years to come.  Pavement management and the software programs that are used to run it can be complex and daunting if you don’t use them on a regular basis.  That’s why we re-hired Mat and VanderHawk Consulting to help us keep our MicroPAVER program updated.  When comparing the costs of hiring and managing additional city staff, procuring vehicles, and factoring in the additional costs of travel, gas, insurance, and maintenance; outsourcing portions of our pavement management program to VanderHawk Consulting made good economic sense for the City’s bottom line.”

City of Burbank:

“We selected VanderHawk Consulting because of our experience in working with Mat while he was at a previous company.  Any company is only as good as the project manager who is running your specific job – and Mat is an intelligent, hard-working, and honest manager who did everything he could to make sure we were happy with the product we received.  We are glad that we chose to work with Mat and look forward to working with him and his VanderHawk Consulting team again in the future.”

City of Solana Beach:

“VanderHawk Consulting cleaned up our out-dated pavement management program and got our City back on track with statistical pavement sampling.  By connecting our Micro PAVER database with our GIS, we are now able to easily view not only pavement condition data, but also the location of pavement samples and the actual distresses that were collected.  This helps us in our quality control and sets the table for future inspections and more accurate prediction modeling within Micro PAVER.  I’m glad that we contracted with Mat and the VanderHawk Consulting team.”

“What really pleased me the most about our latest pavement management update was the level of service and expertise that we received from Mat and VanderHawk Consulting. Pavement management is a highly specialized field and it is important to hire the most knowledgeable people that will be there for the long term.  Mat’s experience and knowledge sets him apart from others in the industry, and his friendly demeanor makes him a pleasure to work with.”

City of Santa Ana:

“I am pleased with the professionalism, responsiveness, and energy Mat has displayed in working with me and the City of Santa Ana for the past 7 years.  He and his team have provided the City with high-quality pavement management services to help us better manage our arterial and collector road network.  That’s why we recently hired them again to help us manage our residential road network as well.”

City of Santee:

“The GIS and report deliverables that we received from Mat will be a great tool for displaying pavement information to our Management and City Council.  He has personally taken extra care in ensuring the deliverables we receive meet the City of Santee’s expectations.  I highly recommend Mat and his team for performing pavement management and GIS services.”

City of Ontario:

“I was impressed with the level of expertise that Mat displayed in the use and functionality of the MicroPAVER and GIS programs.  As a result of his efforts, we were able to increase our annual capital improvement program for road maintenance from $4.2 million to $4.9 million. Additionally, the detailed pavement management analysis that Mat performed on our alley network resulted in our Public Works Department receiving an additional $3.5 million for alley improvements over the next ten years.”

City of Moreno Valley:

“The one-on-one training that I received from Mat will help me and the City of Moreno Valley to better maintain our pavement management system on a move-forward basis.  Mat’s unique ability to teach and explain the uses and concepts of software applications such as Micro PAVER, ArcGIS, GeoSmart, and Microsoft Excel and Access make him a highly effective trainer.”
