Josh brings more than 26 years of experience in municipal and private water, wastewater and energy infrastructure. He has overseen projects ranging from a state-of-the-art $10 million winery waste-to-energy project, to a $56 million municipal green field wastewater treatment plant. Aside from his time attaining his B.S. in Construction Management at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, McGarva is a lifelong Santa Rosa resident. He has a personal appreciation for this beautiful area of the West, and a deep understanding of the importance of clean, safe, fresh water to a burgeoning population with limited natural water resources.
"Every project we take on has its own unique set of challenges, including difficult constructability issues, relationships with numerous stakeholders, trade labor shortages, limited bandwidth for subs and suppliers, environmental constraints, compressed schedules, and more. You must be on your toes and work together, drawing from the combined strengths of the team members. This sense of camaraderie and teamwork in the face of common challenges is what makes this job so rewarding to me. We have developed a deep sense of trust in the capabilities of our peers to work together at a high level to meet and overcome complex problems."
