Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for Underground Parking Garage

Underground Parking Garage Opens in Beverly Hills

Kana Pipeline, together with key client, Matt Construction, their executives, hosts of other fellow subcontractors, and City Officials including the Mayor and City Council, will be attending the ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the completion of the new 450 N. Crescent Drive Underground Parking Garage today from 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. Complimentary parking for this event will be provided at the Civic Center Parking Structure, adjacent to the Beverly Hills Public Library.

This unique project was awarded to Kana Pipeline back in Fall of 2009 for $1.2M, from Matt Construction. Kana Pipeline relocated and installed new sewer and water pipeline infrastructure on Crescent Drive, in front of Beverly Hills City Hall and surrounding streets to sustain this new underground parking garage.

The Kana Pipeline team, together with their Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) division, worked nightly and close together on this project since actual pipeline installation work could not commence until well after all underground utilities were first located and verified. The SUE division conducted approximately 50 vacuum utility potholes and locating services, to ensure there would not be any conflicts with future pipeline installations.

Rizwan Rana, one of Kana Pipeline's Project Managers said, "This was a unique project. Literally, an entire street, existing utilities and everything underground for a depth of approximately 35 feet had to be removed and utilities relocated accordingly, to make way for this underground, 3-level deep, parking garage." Gary Leidolf, Kana Pipeline's Estimator on this project, added, "The majority of our work was in the pipeline utility relocations." Then, after pipeline and other utilities were relocated, a new street was built atop this garage.

Pipeline utility relocations began on Canon Drive and Santa Monica Blvd, north to Crescent Dr. and then to South Santa Monica Blvd. Afterwards, nearly 2,000 linear feet of 18" vitrified clay sewer pipe and sewer manholes were installed in the surrounding streets. Water pipeline work consisted of nearly 1,000 linear feet of 8" ductile iron water pipe installation, fire hydrants and related infrastructures, working on Santa Monica Blvd., Rexford Dr., and Crescent Drive to connect pipelines. Base and cap paving, traffic loops, restriping and slurry seal were the finishing touches Kana made to complete their pipeline installation work in the streets.

Just six inches away from this new underground parking garage awaits another new construction project: the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, located at 570 N. Canon Drive, wherewith Kana Pipeline will be working with Matt Construction, once again. Pipeline construction on this project is expected to start before the end of this year.
