Outstanding Performance Calmentor Award
GEPermit is honored to be recognized in March 2015 with an Outstanding Performance Calmentor Award by California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) District 11 and San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG).
The Caltrans/SANDAG partnership’s Calmentor Mentor-Protégé program encourages and supports small businesses through voluntary partnerships with mid-size and larger firms. Special emphasis goes to fostering the contributions of small architectural and engineering (A&E) firms in public transportation projects in the San Diego region. GEPermit was honored to be the Protégé of HELIX Environmental Planning, a California-based environmental consulting and design services firm, and a leader in environmental planning and natural resource sustainability. Established in 1991 and based in California, HELIX provides a broad range of services on a variety of project types located throughout California and the western United States.
Accepting the award, GEPermit Founder and President Gulsum Rustemoglu said, “As a woman-owned small firm we are pleased to have participated successfully in this program, and we look forward to contributing to projects and collaborations that make San Diego strong.”
