Kana Pipeline Awarded Lambert Ranch Contract

Upscale Residential Construction on Fast Track Schedule in OC

Kana Pipeline was awarded a $2.2M contract to build the underground wet utility pipeline infrastructure for a newly developed, 50 acre land called Lambert Ranch in Irvine, CA. This new residential project is located on the north east corner of the intersection of Portola Parkway and Ridge Valley Road, south of the 241 Foothill Transportation Corridor, near the decommissioned El Toro Marine Corps Air Station.

Kana was contracted by owner and developer, The New Home Company, which was founded by four very respected leaders in residential development; Larry Webb, Joseph Davis, Wayne Stelmar and Tom Redwitz. Kana's estimator, Don Cooper, recalls working hard to provide a complete scope of work. After several plan revisions, Cooper was happy to provide a more detailed and accurate pipeline bid, saying, "I really put my heart and soul into this bid." The Kana Pipeline team was elated to hear the news of the award earlier last week, especially after knowing the hard work that Cooper put into his estimate.

"This is a new key client for us," indicated Daniel Locke, President of Kana Pipeline, "and we are pleased to be working in familiar territory, Irvine, which is right in our back yard, especially with a highly regarded firm."

Kana Pipeline will be installing nearly 40,000 linear feet of pipeline infrastructure. Pipeline installation work will be consisting of new domestic and recycled water pipeline, fireline, sewer and storm drainage systems. Kana's pipeline construction work is split into two phases, with the first offsite phase estimated to start by end of this month, pending permit approvals. This new development will be spinning on a fast track schedule to get the new home models up and ready as soon as possible.

Eugene Figueros, one of Kana's project managers whose managed several pipeline projects for Kana recounts that this is not the first time Kana has worked on fast track projects, adding "Kana is especially not new to fast track residential work and installs quality products."

Kenneth Cornell, the project manager overseeing this project agreed, adding "we have field teams that are extremely competent in the area of residential pipeline construction and I am confident that we'll complete this pipeline work safely and on schedule."

The Lambert Ranch project will consist of 169 high-end, single family homes, featuring three different residential communities: The Hill, The Grove and The Field. This new gated community will also feature a private recreational facility for residents. The models are expected to be complete by the Spring of 2012.
