Installation of all wet utilities and street improvements, including curbs & gutter and AC pavement for the Playa Vista development. Coordination with other contractors, a fast track schedule and restoring and preserving the Ballona Wetlands were among the project management challenges. One of the most technical challenges was the installation of sewer lines below the ground water table in busy Jefferson Blvd at depths in excess of 30 feet.
Blois work included the complete installation of the storm drain, sewer, domestic water and fire water system for this facility designed to preserve classic and historical movies and films that deteriorate over time. Storm drains system included extensive subdrainage on the "living roof" of the facility and multiple sizes. Sewer lines were installed in very difficult circumstances, in conjunction with building shoring and up to depths of 30 feet.
A crowded, congested small site in the heart of the Santa Monica required intensive planning and multiple backup plans in order to meet the schedule. On and offsite sewer and storm drain were the heart of the project, with multiple connections to existing utilities. The offsite sewer included depths of over 30 feet deep in the main drag of Santa Monica, Ocean Ave. One of the more challenging items of work involved installing an offsite water line across and down Ocean Ave and right in front of the iconic Santa Monica Pier.
On and off site utility systems for the beautiful and innovative new home of the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation. Blois work included storm drain, sewer, domestic water, reclaimed water and irrigation. As part of the of the building LEED certification, Blois helped design and install an innovative "grey water" recovery system to be used for irrigation. 3D BIM modeling drawings and coordination were also part of our scope of work.
