Since Vector Engineering Inc began in 2000, we’ve provided our services to a variety of businesses. On every project we undertake, our most important objective is to relate with clients and understand their core necessities and goals. Below are some examples of the work we’ve done - take a look, and get in touch to learn more.
MT. VERNON DOWNTOWN FLOOD PROTECTION 2014 - CURRENT
Relevant to Scope: State and Federally Funded, PS&E documents for linear flood resistant transportation/ infrastructure project
Project Description: Vector has been part of this project from both a PS&E. and construction management perspective. The project is a 1.7 mile long flood-wall with parking lots, Low Impact Design (LID) storm water systems, road and pedestrian improvements combined with landscape architectural elements. The project lead design engineer is Pacific International Engineering (PIE), and Vector Engineering provided PS&E for all structural components and parking lots, sidewalks, intersection improvement and all LID stormwater systems in Phase 2. This included utility work and tie-in to existing paving and buildings. Phase 1 of the project is complete and Phase 2 is currently under construction, Phase 3 design started in March. Our work on Phase 2 of this project earned recognition as an “Outstanding Example of Excellence in Concrete Construction” by Washington Aggregates and Concrete Association.
Project Estimated Cost $17,000,000

PORT BLAKELY – 95’ CISPUS RIVER BRIDGE 2011
Relevant Scope: PS&E documents transportation infrastructure
Project Description: Vector Engineering performed PS&E. and construction management for a 95’ privately owned bridge.
The project was performed (Design/Build) with Arriba Construction.
Our affiliation with Arriba allowed us to use an iterative process to design a bridge that met the loading and budget requirements of the owner.
Collaboration during preliminary design allowed us to track construction costs in real-time.

MIEKLER ROAD BRIDGE REPLACEMENT 2005 - 2007
Relevant to Scope: Bridge and Roadway design
Project Description: Replacement design for an existing timber bridge over Hill Creek on Miekler Road, approximately 6 miles NW of Castle Rock, WA was completed in 2006. The completed PS&E is for a 75’ long pretensioner, prestressed voided slab bridge built on new pile cap substructure. The voided slab was used to achieve the required clearance over the high water mark. Approximately 300’ of approach roadway design was also developed. The construction was completed in Spring 2007.
“On behalf of the Cowlitz County Department of Public Works, I would like to thank you for your work on our recent bridge projects. We were very satisfied with the engineering work and technical assistance provided by your firm during the design and construction of these projects. We are looking forward to working with you and your firm on future projects.” - Chris P. Andrews, P.E.

COUGAR SMITH ROAD REALIGNMENT AND BRIDGE REPLACEMENT 2005
Relevant to Scope: Bridge and Roadway design
Project Description: PS&E for 2500’ of new roadway alignment and 210’ single span bridge replacement project over Middle Satsop River near Matlock was prepared. The scope of work for this project included preliminary design, hydraulic analysis, biological assessment, wetland mitigation and permitting, stormwater design, section 106, geotechnical exploration, constructability evaluation, TS&L layout, final bridge and roadway PS&E design, and construction services. The bridge was built in stages using a unique post-tensioning system for PC super girders and temporary river supports. The realigned roadway used an existing logging railroad corridor and the existing bridge served as a detour during construction. This project was chosen by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Washington State Department of Transportation as the “Best County Project” of local agency transportation projects funded by FHWA in 2007.
