Yalgo, LLC and W & B Development, Ltd.

(254) 953-5353, x-232

The W & B Development Family
Current Opportunity
Yalgo, LLC, a member of the W & B Development family of companies, has

an immediate need for a recent or upcoming graduate of the civil

engineering program at Texas A&M.
The Company
W & B Development is a family-owned land development business located in Killeen, Texas and founded by a 1977 graduate of Texas A & M’s civil engineering program. Since the company’s inception more than twenty-five years ago, W & B Development has grown to a team of nearly thirty talented individuals with experience in all aspects of the land development process. We have the self-sufficiency to purchase land, plat it, produce engineering and construction drawings, perform the construction activities, and sell the finished product using our in-house employees and equipment, and we maintain zero debt while doing so.
We perform both commercial and residential development in several markets

from Waco to Austin and currently have over 5000 residential lots in our

inventory. The W & B Development family is functionally separated into

three companies:

• Yalgo – Yalgo is our engineering company and is responsible for the

design and survey work. On occasion, we use outside consulting firms

to perform specialized design work such as water towers or Letters of

Map Revision for FEMA.

• W & B Construction – W & B Construction is our construction

company and has crews and equipment in the field building site

infrastructure such as roads, water distribution, sanitary sewer

networks, and drainage systems. Our crews do all construction except

asphalt paving and concrete curbing and structures. We use the best

available GPS and machine control technology to reduce construction

time, and very soon we will be able to construct a subdivision with

virtually no field staking.

• W & B Development – W & B Development is our development

company which manages and finances the entire development

The Engineer’s Role at Yalgo
With our vertically-integrated company structure, an engineer at Yalgo is

involved in the project from before the property is purchased until final

inspection and project closeout. Here are some of the tasks for which an

engineer may be responsible in a typical residential project as he or she

develops the required experience:
The W & B Development Family
• Perform preliminary site layouts prior to land purchase to determine

the economic feasibility of the project

• Perform environmental site assessments as due diligence prior to

property purchase

• Submit projects to planning and zoning committees and work with

municipalities and neighborhood groups to get them approved

• Perform numerous site layouts and cost estimates to determine the

most efficient design to use for the project

• Draw and submit project plats to municipalities and attend related

meetings with municipal officials

• Develop site construction plans
o Perform hydrologic and hydraulic analyses to design the site

drainage infrastructure

o Design and analyze water and sanitary sewer networks

o Design various concrete structures

o Develop a site grading plan
• Create 3-D surface models (DTMs) for use in the field by construction

and survey crews

• Supervise our crews during the construction process to ensure design

parameters are met

• Update the design and the DTMs, ensuring that design parameters are

met, as issues arise in the field

• Produce as-built drawings and obtain final approval from regulating

authorities when construction is complete

Why Join Our Team?
As you may have noticed, these jobs are not typical jobs where you are

stuck in a cubicle doing the same thing over and over again. We need

people with more than just engineering ability. The ideal candidate must

have good interpersonal skills, be a leader, be a self-starter, be capable of

“thinking outside the box”, understand the financial impact of his or her

decisions, handle deadlines and stress, understand construction processes

and methodologies, and MORE!
In this role, you will develop as a complete land development professional by

building relationships with all types of people from laborers to mayors and

by learning from a proven and successful team that has built a business that

has grown from nothing to a 5000-lot inventory in 25 years without incurring

debt. In the process, you will be rewarded with an income that is based on

your contribution to our company. The right person for these jobs will be

well-rewarded with competitive compensation and benefits.

Worried about the current housing market? Afraid that a career in land

development might not be the right move at this time? These are valid

concerns, but our company is poised to become stronger in this down

market because we hold a competitive advantage that our competitors lack.

We also are fortunate to be located in an area of the country that has

weathered the downturn in the housing market much better than other

areas have.

Our Competitive Advantage
Our company’s main competitive advantage is that we offer something to

our customers that other companies cannot offer. Using this advantage, we

have developed excellent relationships with several national home builders.

The advantage is pretty simple, really – it is efficiency. Our unique company

structure and methodology allows us to produce residential lots for less than

other companies, including the home builders themselves, can. We top that

off by financing the lots in-house, saving the customer the time and paperwork.
How does this competitive advantage help us in a shaky housing market?

Well, even in a down market, lots are still being developed and homes are

still being built, just not in the numbers they were before the market fell.

The trick is to be the developer still selling lots, while maintaining a

comfortable profit margin. We are able to do that because we are more

efficient than other companies. We are efficient because:

• We look at the financial return on the total project. For instance, when

engineering and construction are done by sub-contractors, each of

those contractors needs to make a certain amount of profit. We, on

the other hand, can spend a little extra time on engineering to save a

lot of money on construction. Our engineers have a vested interest in

the profitability of the construction phase of a project. For instance,

we may take the time to evaluate three different storm drain layouts

because it may save $10,000 in drainage structure cost for an

engineering investment of $2,000. We call it “value engineering”!
• Each of our companies is more efficient than our competitors because

all work we perform generates income. We don’t spend time bidding

on projects only to lose the contracts to competitors, having wasted all

that time generating a proposal. If we are working on a project, it is

because the project is already a real project for us!
• We don’t play the “blame game”. If the engineers mess up and the

construction crews have to redo something, or vice versa, we don’t

shut the project down until we figure out whose fault it was and who is

going to pay for the fixes. We just fix the problem in the most

economical way, and learn from our mistakes.
• The construction company can request field changes that save money

without losing revenue, and the engineers can quickly make the

changes without a stack of engineering change orders to fill out and

• Our companies are good at what they do and are very efficient. We

equip them with the best tools available because we know that these

tools increase productivity. We have gladly spent hundreds of

thousands of dollars on engineering/surveying software and machine

control systems because it allows us to eliminate waste in the process

of going from concept to finished product. Using those tools allows

one engineer to do what might otherwise take three, and when the

design is complete, we create a DTM that is loaded directly to the

machine control system, ensuring that the construction crews build

exactly what the engineer intended, very efficiently.
• Our underlying concentration is on efficiency because efficiency is our

competitive advantage! Every employee in all three companies works

to save costs at every opportunity and is continually trying to increase


• Our corporate structure creates an environment that lacks bureaucracy

because bureaucracy kills efficiency.

• We don’t borrow money. By self-funding our projects, we forego the

direct costs associated with borrowing, like points and interest. We

also save on indirect costs, like property appraisals, market analyses,

financial accounting procedures, and the time and energy that is spent

acquiring loans.
Do You Fit Our Needs?
As long as the population grows, there will always be lots to develop. W & B

Development’s efficiency produces lots at the lowest possible cost, and we

have the financial strength to finance our lots to our customers, giving us a

strong position in the real estate market. Our financial strength also allows

us to grow, but in order to do so, we need high-quality team members. If

we can find team members that understand and can execute our corporate

methods, we WILL grow. Are YOU one of those people?
If so, please contact me:

PS:  Do you know if any of the CE students who were interested in Chevron were able to get hired on?  I corresponded with several and forwarded their information further up the chain of command, but got snowed under with a problem well (just finished last week) and never heard back from them. (Either that, or their answer is buried somewhere in the remaining 2559 unread messages still in my inbox.)  Other sectors of the economy may still be a bit slow, but the oilfield is not only frantically busy, but terminally shorthanded.  We’re also facing an issue dubbed “the big crew change”.  The average age of the professional workforce is around 50 (I’m 44, so I’m in the thinnest slice of the age distribution pie).  The problem is that the average retirement age (a couple of years ago anyway) is 57.5.  So we need to hire a large number of new engineers and earth scientists and train them up as quickly as possible.

I have come across your details on data.com and wanted to contact you directly as we are currently recruiting several engineering roles with top tier coal mining companies in Queensland Australia and I wanted to see if you would be interested in sending me your CV to see if your experience matches what we require in the roles on offer?  Ideally candidates will have previous experience working in the coal mining industry.

To give you an idea the senior level roles we are currently working on include a Technical Services Manager, Mine Manager, Principal Mining Engineer, and Senior Mine Engineer for the projects team of a top tier coal miner, based in the Brisbane head office.  The company in question has consistently been a high performing miner both internationally and in the Australian mining environment demonstrating a 60% productivity improvement across their impressive portfolio of underground and open cut mines. Mining high margin coal assets, the company has a large project pipeline of coal resources at advanced stages.  These roles will be responsible for working on one of their milestone projects and developing the technical strategies across this and future projects and studies.
Australia’s mining industry is currently booming and these conditions are providing excellent opportunities for experienced international mining professionals. Our clients are prepared to offer full visa sponsorship particularly to candidates with previous coal mining experience.  


Some of the opportunities and conditions on offer in Australia include:

• A flourishing export industry offering exceptional salaries with high earning potential (in fact the salaries on offer here are amongst the best in the world)

• Excellent investment in operations and equipment

• Family friendly rosters and 5 weeks annual leave

• Subsidised housing and relocation assistance for employees and families

• Good schools in family-friendly mining communities and major cities

• Excellent social activities and beautiful location (most of the coal mines in Qld are within a couple of hours drive of the Great Barrier Reef and tropical beaches)

Cassandra has successfully placed and assisted to relocate a number of mining professionals from South Africa, Canada, and the USA for roles in Australia over recent months. Australia’s mining industry is currently booming and these conditions are providing excellent opportunities for experienced international mining professionals. Our clients are prepared to offer full visa sponsorship and relocation particularly to candidates with previous coal mining experience.    
To give you an idea of the recruitment process involved, the first step would be for you to send me through a copy of your CV, and then I will organise a convenient time for Cassandra Manthey to give you a phone call. During this phone call she will conduct a telephone interview to establish your experience and career motivations. From there, with your agreement, she would represent you to our clients. They usually conduct interviews over the phone, or via Skype. If you are successful and they wish to proceed, you would do coal board medical and psychometric tests. Then they would invite you to do a face-to-face interview on site and would fund your expenses to have you travel to Australia from overseas. At that point they would make an offer of employment.


If you think you might like to investigate these and/or similar opportunities in Australia a bit more, please send me through a copy of your CV and we can progress from there.

Alternatively, if Australia is not a realistic option for you, I would really appreciate it if you could pass on my details to anyone you know that might be interested for them to contact me or refer their name to me.


I look forward to hearing from you soon.
