To comply with California Department of Water Resources Division of Safety of Dams standards, LADWP designed and built several facilities at a 43-acre site adjacent to the Los Angeles River and between the City of Burbank and Griffith Park. The Silver Lake Reservoir Complex Storage Replacement Project included the construction of two buried concrete reservoirs, a four-megawatt hydroelectric plant, a flow regulating station, and a 96-inch-diameter sewer trunk line.
As the Quality Manager, KKCS was responsible for the development and implementation of the Quality Manual. Aspects of the Quality Manual included procedures for submittal reviews, material delivery, pre-inspection reviews, concrete curing data, and audits. Both the contractor and LADWP utilized PlanGrid, a cloud-based application for document control, integrated with iPads. This application allowed users real-time access to project concerns in the field, project specifications and plans, as well as submittals and RFIs, without the bulky paperwork.
