W.W. Clyde & Company, the general contractor for the I-15, Exit 120 reconstruction project, recently teamed up with the Athletics & Leisure Services and Public Works Departments to quickly build an expansion on the east side of the Outdoor Pool at the Mesquite Recreation Center. According to Nicholas Montoya, Athletics & Leisure Services superintendent, W.W. Clyde donated 38 yards of concrete in order to complete the project which will allow the Recreation Center Pool to open in time for the Summer swimming season.
Due to the generous support and donation to improve the Outdoor Pool, this project will expand the facility to about 2,000 square feet of open space. The expansion will alleviate some of the overcrowding in the pool area during special events and swim meets for the summer.
This is not the only project W.W. Clyde has been involved within the City.
"W.W. Clyde & Company has been an exceptional partner throughout the design and construction of the West Mesquite Interchange Design Build Project," stated Kurt O. Sawyer, City of Mesquite Development Services Director. "By helping with this community project, they have gone above and beyond what was required of them. The City of Mesquite would like to thank W.W. Clyde & Company for improving not just the transportation in Mesquite, but our recreation as well."

W.W. Clyde and Company seeks out ideas from the community in which they are working for projects they can support. They donate materials, equipment, or funds to worthwhile projects within the community in an effort to leave it a better place than when they first arrived.
"We would like to thank W.W. Clyde & Company, along with SUNROC Concrete, a sister company, for their generous donation of the 38 yards of concrete for our pool project," Montoya remarked.
"We have been very pleased to have the opportunity to build the two new bridges and the new roadway at the West Mesquite Interchange project," remarked Alan Preston, W.W. Clyde & Company Project Manager. "The City of Mesquite has been great to work with, and we feel it is a wonderful opportunity to give a little back to the city by donating the concrete for the pool expansion. Thank you to the citizens for their patience and friendliness during the past year.”
“I would also like to express our gratitude and thanks to the City Staff that helped coordinate the project; Streets Division, Facility Maintenance, Building/Developmental Services, and the Parks Division. This was a combined effort of all staff,” said Montoya. “The Department of Athletics and Leisure Services and the community is grateful for the volunteer efforts and we thank W.W. Clyde for giving so generously of their time and talents. Because of individuals like them, we, the City of Mesquite, are better able to serve all of our clients and patrons of the community," Montoya added.
