Making a Difference
As a values-based firm, Cordoba provides unparalleled benefits and responsive services for public infrastructure by “Making a Difference” where we live and work.
Moving the Space Shuttle
The California Science Center turned to Cordoba Corp to transport the Space Shuttle Endeavour because we understood the locations and street conditions as well as having direct experience working with the affected stakeholder agencies that the shuttle would have to pass through and impact.
[The] expertise of civil engineers who didn’t flinch at the enormity and complexity of Mission 26... did the profession proud.
To overcome the logistical challenges, Cordoba Corporation’s team of talented experts not only needed to meticulously engineer the route, but had to coordinate with the various agencies representing two distinct cities – Los Angeles and Inglewood - and consider the needs of the surrounding communities. With this in mind, our professionals selected a route that would go around historic districts and minimize the impact to mature trees. Anee Elizabeth Powell, Editor in Chief at ASCE Civil Engineering Magazine said, "These solutions called upon the ingenuity, creativity, knowledge, and expertise of civil engineers who didn’t flinch at the enormity and complexity of Mission 26 and who developed a program for that mission that did the profession proud."
Cordoba Corporation and the rest of the team working on the space shuttle move safely delivered Endeavour to the California Science Center while 1.5 million cheering bystanders watched this historic event.
Commitment to California’s Educational Institutions
We are committed to supporting and partnering with educational institutions throughout the state. These partnerships give us access to the best and the brightest talent as well as cutting edge technology being developed in our institutions of higher learning. We are currently partnering with the California State University Northridge (CSUN) Center for Geographical Studies (CGS) to provide clients with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) services. Students learn real world skills working with industry partners and clients staffing this multi-disciplinary center. The center has developed complex relational databases for clients like the State Water Resources Control Board. Cordoba Corporation and CGS are working to apply these types of solutions to Cordoba’s utility clients.
