August 8, 2016

Sterling Construction Company, Inc. (NasdaqGS: STRL) (“Sterling” or the “Company”) today announced that Myers & Sons Construction (“Myers”), was awarded a $21.7 million wastewater treatment facility project in Malibu, California. The Civic Center Wastewater Treatment Facility – Phase I project consists of various below-ground elements, including the construction of aeration basins, concrete anoxic basins, post-anoxic basins, and recirculation facilities. The above-ground elements include construction of an operations building, installation of a crane for removing membrane bioreactor filters for maintenance, an ultraviolet (UV) disinfection facility, a recycled water storage tank, a pump station, landscape screening, and a driveway for vehicles. During construction, Myers is also responsible for maintaining the existing plant until the new facility is completed. The project will take approximately eighteen months to complete.

Paul J. Varello, Sterling’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are pleased to have been selected by the City of Malibu to construct the first phase of this wastewater treatment facility. Due to the facility’s close proximity to the coastline and a leach field, this is an environmentally sensitive project that fits well within our specialized capabilities. From a longer term perspective, this project is indicative of the growing opportunities we see in water infrastructure construction projects. This award also demonstrates our disciplined bidding approach, reinforcing our belief that we are well positioned to continue to add attractive, profitable opportunities to our backlog in the future.”
