Our Philosophy

We have progressed through performance, by having competent, intelligent, and experienced personnel actively directing the tactical and strategic operations of each of our companies.

We believe in intensive project management and focus on the four pillars of project success:

  • Safety
  • Quality
  • Schedule
  • Cost

Our Project Managers are hired from within the industry and through construction management and engineering academic programs across the country. As a result, we are able to leverage proven experience with the latest and best practices to ensure project success.

Our demonstrated capability to successfully complete projects in multiple and diverse engineering disciplines is based on the willingness of personnel at all levels to work together as a team.

Over the years, this teamwork between management, skilled craftsmen, and support personnel has enabled us to become an industry leader. We take great pride in our ability to meet and exceed our client’s expectations.

The West Kern Water District has worked in conjunction with the W.M. Lyles Co. for over twenty years. We have found them to be professional in every aspect of water works construction. Our experience has included consultation on design, construction management, prime and sub-contracting services on projects ranging up to $30,000,000. Honesty, integrity and quality work sum up West Kern’s association with W.M. Lyles Co.

…without the pre-construction planning that W. M. Lyles Co. provided to our engineers and the on-site coordination of the utility construction, we never would have opened this facility on the target date.
