Kana Pipeline declared that it has been contracted by Charlotte, North Carolina-based Cogdell Spencer ERDMAN, a design-build company to complete a pipeline installation work.
The accord valued around $300K will require Kana to set up an underground construction for a 3-storey concrete tilt-up, shell and core medical office building measuring 120,000 sq.ft, and located away from Sepulveda Blvd, close to the I-405, between Rinaldi Street and San Fernando Mission Blvd in Mission Hills, CA.
According to Kenneth Cornell, Kana Pipeline’s Project Manager, the storm drainage work forms a major part of the pipeline project. The company will be working in an open flood control channel to substitute the present channel construction with twin box culverts. He explained that the demanding storm drainage work will be completed before October and the onset of the rainy season. The approvals for the work are still pending.
The underground wet utility segment of the project will utilize RCP, PVC and HDPE pipeline materials to complete the 3,000 ft of pipeline installation and will include, double detector checks and new fire hydrants and connectivity to the fire department to make certain about water access during fire exigencies. For the purpose of providing safe drinking water necessary chlorination processes and bacteria testing will be done. To handle storm water runoff, the building will have manholes and catch basins.
The Department of Water and Power at Los Angeles will complete the water pipeline connectivity away from the offsite located Stranwood Ave themselves instead of allowing Kana Pipeline to complete it. Kana in turn will extend the onsite pipeline connectivity provided by the Department of Water to the medical office building.
The company has already commenced the construction of the Medical Office Building at Mission Hills during the early part of June this year and continuing it to finish the balance of the underground wet utility pipeline substructure that comprise erection of new domestic storm drainage systems and water pipeline, fire line and sewer. The project is anticipated to get finished by 2012 June.
