Infrastructure Project Experience
PG&E’s 30-inch transmission gas line explosion in 2010 required immediate emergency services as well as long term infrastructure upgrades to restore the community and infrastructure needs.
BKF developed concept plans for Park Site 23 to show how the treatment volume could be metered and pumped into bioswales and bioretention facilities to meet the C.3 provisions. BKF also worked with the developer and City of San Francisco on a Storm Water Management Plan for the system.
Through a collaborative effort between BKF and Sacramento Municipal Utility District, a solution was obtained that was satisfactory to the reviewing agency, the design team and Sacramento Municipal Utility District, without modifications to the existing public system.
The BKF team provided the master utility planning and civil engineering of site infrastructure improvements for 75 acres of sovereign land and 310 acres of non-trust land. The project includes the River Rock Casino and associated roads and parking lots.
BKF prepared the plans, specs and the costs estimates for the project, assisted the City in obtaining the permits and provided design services during construction. Scope included the rehabilitation of 23,508 feet of sewers ranging between 6-inch and 12-inches including laterals, and manholes.
The Master Plan for the Sacramento Municipal District Energy Management Center reconfigures the existing building and utilities for expansion.
As a part of Sonoma County’s effort to extend the range and use of electric vehicles in the North Bay, BKF has prepared designs and construction documents for the installation of 26 Electric Vehicle Charging Stations. In 2011, Sonoma County was recognized as the “Most EV-Ready Community 2011” for its wide-ranging policies to accelerate widespread electric vehicle (EV) adoption and municipal usage of EV’s.
BKF coordinated with the trash device provider and the City of Mountain View to ensure a design that properly conveyed the expected hydrologic flows and caused the least disruption to the local neighborhood. BKF was responsible for the design of a hydrodynamic separator placed within a residential area. BKF determined the final placement of the device based upon the results of a utility analysis, gas lines, sewer lines, and overhead wires were in the immediate vicinity.
BKF provided engineering documents for multi-phase instream improvements, including a drop structure and two retaining walls. BKF utilized preliminary consultation with Corps of Engineers and the Water Quality Control Board to determine project recommendations.
BKF is currently providing site design for a new substation for the Sacramento Municipal Utility District within the City of Sacramento. To support the California Environmental Quality Act process, BKF provided land planning and site analysis and prepared a conceptual site layout plan and a conceptual site grading plan.
