RH2 Engineering, Inc.

“One of the elements that appealed to me about Tierra was that Leslie Beaird had strong relationships with WSDOT staff in Local Programs, which is absolute gold if a local agency is ever in a pinch needing to get paperwork through. She knows exactly who to call and what needs to be done. She is very proactive and friendly to work with. Leading into the project, she contacted me several times, and that provided a level of comfort that RH2 was important to Tierra and she wanted the project to be successful. While it is true with any project that the business aspect needs to performed, her cordial demeanor and positive attitude make the work environment a little more enjoyable.”

Mason County Public Utility District

“It has been our pleasure to work with Tierra Right of Way this construction season. Their field staff is knowledgeable of construction, understand the balance of cultural sensitivity and keeping a project moving forward when possible, and work very well with the local Tribe. When the contractor encountered culturally sensitive artifacts, Tierra Right of Way staff expertly and timely communicated with the PUD, the Tribe and the State Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation to resolve the situation while preserving the artifacts so that portion of the project could resume that same day. They met their scope and budget which were developed in conjunction with our contractor and were flexible in scheduling with our contractor. We are pleased to have Tierra Right of Way on our on-call archaeological services roster.”

  • Luis Reyes, CEO

City of Grants, New Mexico

"Due to some errors made during the first go-round of property acquisition for the Riverwalk Trail project, the City of Grants was behind an entire year. Thankfully, I bumped into Meghan Bayer and Tierra Right of Way Services at the 2017 New Mexico Infrastructure Conference and, knowing that we needed to put the Riverwalk Trail’s property acquisition on a fast track, I asked her to provide me with a proposal. I received a proposal the following week, and nearly six months after the proposal was approved, the City of Grants Council property acquisition was complete and was under budget. The City of Grants’ administration was impressed with Meghan, as she regularly provided updates and was very professional throughout the process. In addition, her strong relationship with the NMDOT Right of Way Bureau was very beneficial to the City. Because of the good results, the City is now using Tierra Right of Way Services on another project and plans on using their services in the future. Professional, persistent, and dependable is what best describes Meghan Bayer. The City of Grants looks forward to working with Meghan and Tierra in the future."

They paid particular attention to our schedule and worked diligently to meet our needs, all the while ensuring each phase of the process was completed in accordance with all the laws and regulations that govern the purchase of real estate for right-of-way use by a governmental agency. Leslie and Melinda were very professional.They met with the property owners at their convenience, and spent the time necessary to answer all their questions. They made sure the property owners were well informed and built a trusting relationship. It was the commitment shown by all the staff at Tierra Right of Way that allowed us to stay on schedule.
