Kana awarded Pipeline Contract from Erdman Company
Erdman Company awarded Kana Pipeline the wet utility pipeline infrastructure contract necessary for the construction of a new 3-story medical office building in Mission Hills, CA. Construction expected to be completed by mid 2012.
Cogdell Spencer ERDMAN, a Charlotte, North Carolina-based, design-build firm, awarded Kana Pipeline a $300K pipeline construction contract to install the underground infrastructure for a new 3-story 120,000-square-foot shell and core, concrete tilt-up medical office building in Mission Hills, CA located off of Sepulveda Blvd., near the I-405, between San Fernando Mission Blvd. and Rinaldi Street.
Kana’s construction of the Mission Hills Medical Office Building began in early June and is still underway to complete the remaining underground wet utility pipeline infrastructure consisting of new sewer, fireline, domestic water pipeline and storm drainage systems installation.
Project Manager for Kana Pipeline, Kenneth Cornell, indicated that a major component to this pipeline project is the storm drainage work. Pending permit approvals shortly, Kana will be working within an open flood control channel to replace the existing channel with twin box culverts. “This work for storm drainage systems will be a challenging job but something we’ll overcome soon.” said Cornell. “We should be out of this channel before the wet season, which begins October 1st.”
It will take over 3,000 linear feet of pipeline installation to complete the underground wet utility portion of this project. This will include HDPE, PVC and RCP pipeline materials for the wet utility framework. New fire hydrants, double detector checks, and a fire department connection will be added to ensure access to water for fire protection. All necessary water bacteria testing and chlorination procedures will take place to ensure a safe potable water system. Catch basins and manholes will be put in place to manage storm water runoff.
Unlike some other water and power agencies, Cornell explained that the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power will be installing the water pipeline feed off of Stranwood Ave., located offsite, themselves. Pipeline contractors are usually allowed to install both offsite and onsite pipeline infrastructure for water agencies, but not in this case. From there, at the property line, Kana will be extending the water pipeline onsite to feed the large medical office building. This will complete the potable and fire line pipeline installation work necessary to bring water and fire services to the building.
A medical group is expected to occupy the building, which will be host to several different medical practices. “We’re looking forward to the successful completion of this work for Erdman, a new client,” indicated Cornell, who added that the Mission Hills project is expected to be completed by June 2012.
