(because of the slope gradient) and across the entire longaxis length of the building for a total pumping distance of over 500 ft (150 m). The Pacific was a difficult project to work through and had many issues that had to be resolved.

With the Owner, General Contractor, and DHI working together, they were able to make this a mutually successful project for a building that has already served for 50 years and is ready for its next season of service. Jason Myers graduated from California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo, CA, in 1995 with his bachelor’s degree in civil engineering and from Golden Gate University, San Francisco, CA, in 2015 with his master’s in business administration with an emphasis in project management. Myers started out his professional career working for an earth retention subcontractor, where he learned the importance of budgeting, scheduling, and client relationships. Also during this time, he was introduced to the use of shotcrete and its applications. After working for a general contractor for a couple of years he realized that he enjoyed the tighter knit of working for a subcontractor and the ability to construct projects on a tighter time frame with several going at once. Myers also enjoys the process of handling most of the procedures that go into constructing a project rather than seeing only a small portion of the process. Myers joined Dees Hennessey in 2004 and has been a part owner of the company since 2007. He currently serves as the Vice President of Operations as well as the Safety Director.
