LACCD Community College

With more than $6 billion to modernize its nine colleges, the LACCD's Sustainable Building Program is one of the nation's largest green construction efforts. With building techniques and practices focused on saving water, limiting air pollution, and emphasizing the use of recycled material, LACCD is carrying out its mission with the environment in mind.

As a member of LACCD's prequalified sub-contractors group, BA Inc. provided civil design support for the Mission College Campus located in Sylmar, California. This work encompassed all aspects of civil design and included precise grading, erosion and horizontal controls, utility design, drainage design, hydrology and hydraulic calculations, project specifications, and offsite work related to street improvements and corresponding permits for construction.

I-710 Central Utility Study

The I-710 Central Utility Study is a conceptual utility planning project to identify the potential impacts created by the I-710 freeway corridor improvements as proposed by Metro. Possible improvements include an aerial freight corridor, widening, and interchange modifications. The Central Segment is the second of three segments in the utility study, that approximately 8 miles in length and extends from the I-405 Interchange to north of State Route 91. The study includes analysis and mitigation for the major wet and dry utilities within the corridor which are impacted by the addition of travel lanes and the freight corridor. As a sub consultant, BA Inc. is responsible for the analysis and development of relocation strategies for all wet and dry utilities within half of the segment.

Highlights of the project include:
• Coordination with utility purveyors, including but not limited to, City of Long Beach, Metropolitan Water District, Los Angeles County Flood Control District, and Los Angeles County Sanitation District

• The pipelines affected by the proposed I-710 improvements are indexed on a matrix, detailing the location, facility ownership, and the proposed relocation strategies.

• Daily coordination is conducted with the adjacent utilities and agencies to ensure conflict management and to communicate the proposed re-routing of each facility.

• The relocation proposals are to be designed to a concept level with sufficient detail to inform Metro about cost and construction sequence. Concept utility plans, cost estimates, and a design report are to be prepared for all major facilities.
